While she worked on her book page wreath, I worked on this gold cross medallion wreath for Mom.
I am so glad Mom loved it!!!
This is my Sister's wreath!
In making these wreaths, we used an old Bible book. I really love how hers turned out with the yellowed pages. She wasn't too happy how the center of her wreath turned out, but we are going to work on fixing that tomorrow night.
She is not too crafty, so I am going to make sure she's happy with this wreath. I don't want her to give up on becoming crafty and spending quality bonding time with her Big Sis (moi)!
I am so happy to be back in my fully stocked craft room!!!
By fully stocked craft room, I mean that I have all my papers, punches, ribbons, and ephemera at my easy reach...even though I did do a quick shop stop at my neighborhood craft store...hehehe...just couldn't resist.
I had planned to make another hanging banner, but at the last minute I decided to make it a tag banner.
It's amazing how I always start with a cleared work table, but I always manage to end up with just enough room to work on a project. Organized chaos!
This is the back of the tag banner. I used Autumn Washi tape to concealed the Scotch tape attaching the tags.
On the next tag banner I make, I will not cut individual tags. I'll figure out how I can fold the paper and make a long row of tags.
I thought it turned out pretty good, that I presented it to my BFF as a gift!
Last Saturday, I had a great morning finding a few garage sale treasures!
The above bowl and following 2 items I found at an Estate Sale. It was their last day and everything was 50% off.
I loved this bowl at first sight!
I almost did not get this silver candle holder/flower arrangement piece because of it had very a old and faded silk flower arrangement. I am giving it a second chance and will add a fresh flower arrangement for special dinners.
I also just had to get this cute little pillow. I wasn't too crazy about the fabric, but I loved the beautiful crochet edging on both ends. I figure I can always replace the fabric with one of my liking and add the crochet edge to it.
I found this gorgeous bowl at my neighbor Sue's garage sale. This bowl will be great to serve a huge salad or a hot pasta dish.
I also bought a couple of her Longaberger baskets...but more on that for another post! I LOVE Longaberger baskets!!!
And last but not least, my sister introduced me to a new store in town (well...new to me). It's called Redesign Goodwill. Every other Saturday, everything is 50% off, except for the new furniture.
I bought this yo-yo quilt. I think it will add a touch of Christmas decor to our bedroom.
This handmade quilt also came from Redesign Goodwill. It's a light quilt perfect for our chilly nights. Both quilts are in great condition.
I also picked up these 4 blue coasters to add to my blue and white china.
This store is very clean and well organized. The merchandise is in great condition and easy to sort through.
I am thankful and grateful for my very generous/healthy/loving Mom.
I'm so glad that you came to visit!! DH and I have been married for 26 years. Hubby and I are now retired and enjoying life. We winter in Sun City, AZ, & spend summers in Golden Valley, MN. This blog will chronicle our adventures (& misadventures)as a retired couple. We have 2 spoiled and devilish KittyKats, & Jack - the most adorable perfect Chihuahua ever!!!!
