Just a quick idea. I recently need to set up a display with a plaid theme. Nothing seemed to work and I didn't want to buy another vase so I found an old sweater of mine and cut off the arm. I slipped it over the vase.
It still didn't look right. So around the sleeve cuff I threaded red yarn for a rustic look then I hot glued two of the sweaters buttons on the front of the vase and finished the buttons off with two covered buttons I made out of plaid. Sorry for the poor quality of the photos. They are so dark but that's how it is why up here in the Northwest.
I think it turned out really cute. Now I am sweater hunting all the time.
I just made a ton of these for the shop and our tree lighting event at Bethany Village. They are great for gift cards or treats. These are the perfect vessal to hold your childrens teacher present in. No need to wrap just stuff and go.
I have been so busy. I finished up a beautiful reception a couple of weeks ago. The centerpieces were incredible. Pictures will be coming soon.
Now I have a show at Bethany Village on Nov. 29th. It's the tree lighting event. There are going to be a ton of vendors. It's should be really fun and the our local Fox news channel will be there.
I have been working on my Hot Toddy Bar craft night coming up on Dec 4th. I am so excited the Hot Toddy Bar is looking beautiful. Plaid and vintage Christmas put together there is nothing better. I can't wait to show photos of that.
And I have been working on product for the shop and Etsy and the show and and I don't know what else.
Here is a sneak of my latest vintage tags. These images are from the 40's my favorite time period. The tages turned out so cute. The colors are vibrant and fun. Puts me in the mood for a little Bing and Fred at Holiday Inn.
I have got to share. I found this recipe in this cookbook my friend gave me. It is the easiest and best recipe for pita chips and it has really helped me with my craving for potato chips. :)
I thought I would share:
I package whole wheat pita bread
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
freshly ground pepper
(i use sea salt and sprinkle some on after I put the chips on the cookie sheet.)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grab a cookie sheet.
1. cut each pita round in half.
2. open each pita round up and separate
3. brush evoo mixture on pita
4. use a pizza cutter to cut pita in wedges
5. place on cookie sheet and pop in oven
6. bake for 20-30 minutes. I usually only do 20 and they come out perfect
You are done. They are crisp and delicious. Try them with hummus. Yum
