    Closets, Fairs and Fall

    Last week started kinda slow, but with Joe’s long weekend coming up and moving day creeping in I hope. The closet was all my job. I had the task of figuring out how to put it back. The old way just did not make sense to me! However, I did not want to purchase too much more! Adding one and moving the line of shelves what my first attempt. Making more for dresses and another place to pile things. Ta-DUH!! Joe and I picked up blinds, curtains, new small lamps and even new curtain rods. Although we still need to get trim.

    It started with…..

    an antique popcorn popper…. the Pretty Pines (142049) Stamp set and matching dies (141851). This “holidayish” striped burlap (147889) just helped bring this idea to light….. The large sentiment needed a rough look and a few “snowflakes” At the craft fair I had a few people offer to buy this… I do not think I can give this one up. I was going to give it to my mom, but not sure if that is going to happen now either. YIKES!! Bad I know… Tell me what your style is?? Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
