|A very sweet girl rescued a whole stack of these windows from being hauled to the dump by her hubby for me. Thank you, thank you, Cara from the Sheet Boutique!!! Since I've discovered my own chalkboard paint recipe, I've been just loving these old windows (see below for recipe).|
|I also landed a big stash of foam wreaths from a thrift store for 10 cents each!!!! So while I wasn't into wreaths before, I am now. I cut strips of fabric from this sweater vest. Don't raise your eyebrows at me, I did not ever wear that. I think my mom talked me into it at the Goodwill As Is store because she thought we could do something with the hounds tooth material. I questioned that after I got it home but it came in handy for this wreath. I forgot to take a picture, but here's how I wrapped the strips around the wreath from a former project:|
|I pulled the flowers off their stems and hot glued them all around the wreath and then tied a strip of fabric at the top to hang it from the window.|
|I used double sided mounting tape to adhere the clothes pins to the glass and the words are from vinyl that my friend Phil Sarlo so graciously made for me! They are awesome, just peel off one side of the paper, stick the word where you want it to go, and peel the top piece off. Wa la! Thanks, Phil!! This here beautiful window is for sale in the darling and fabulous little shop in Brooklyn, Michigan called Fabulous Darling American Made Art, Gifts, and More . Have you been there? If you haven't, what on EARTH are you waiting for?!!!|
