You thought I was going to get all SERIOUS on you didn’t you???? I’m actually on a thinking mission. You see.. I have a WHOLE bunch of frames.. a whole bunch. Last year I started stitching. You know, REAL COUNTRY stitching. I tried to sell them.. I sold 10. I have a whole bunch more. I have some Halloween and Fall ones.. and when I dig out my Stuff, I’m going to give one away.. a cute Halloween one or Fall one.. or maybe Both! I’m also planning a giveaway to all of my Primitive Country Gals. Stay tuned!
Secondly.. THANK YOU for all of the visits yesterday and all of the wonderful comments! I had such a great time going through everyone’s spray painting ideas.. and got a few that I stashed away in my mind for the future! I met a lot of new blogging friends and need to get busy updating my blogroll! Thanks again!
Anywhooo… I have some frames leftover. I’m trying to find some quotes to print out to frame and have around my house. Anyone got any good places that they find quotes?
I do have two projects to share.. I’m in the process of re-doing my mantle and here’s what I have so far. I plan on finding another mirror or something to hang on the wall up there.. and I love that garland, although I don’t know if it fits in anymore.. it has little hang tags that say faith, family, friends and live, laugh, love.. I may have to find a new spot for it. Its that “country” in me that doesn’t want to part with it. Its hard.. I still have a lot of country, and I can’t afford to change out everything.. and I don’t want to change out everything. I just want a more mature look I guess.. This is almost NO COST decorating. The only things I purchase for this re-do were the pears and the bird.. and they were purchased at the dollar tree! I had everything else. Do I need to do something else to the candlesticks, maybe some moss underneath the pears.. they look a little lonely..
Here’s what I have so far.. Remember, I live in Military Housing.. so I can’t paint the walls or the brick!
I made the little Monogram Picture yesterday..
Recognize this little birdie???
Oh, and while I was crafting.. I made this for my bedroom.. I know that MY initial should be first, but that’s Hub’s side of the bed.. and I wanted it for the shelf above my bed.
It looks nice here with my Capodimonte Rose from Naples.. and one of my Great Grandmother’s Hankies.
Okay friends.. fire away!
