Before I get to the crafty project that I did today…thought I would let you know that I did get to the garage sale/vintage show, but it was not worth the $3.50 per person that we paid to get in. There were a few vintage booths and a few primitive booths…plus a few garage sale booths, but the rest were booths full of stuff Made In China. My daughter got a few things, but I didn’t buy anything. I did see a bunch of old jewelry pieces, but they weren’t in good enough condition for me to reuse in my necklaces.
Now for what I did today…
My sister gave me this wood pear several months ago…she found it while out thrifting.
I decided that it needed a little makeover…so my sister gave me an old newspaper she had and I went to work on covering it with clips from the newspaper.
After I got it all covered…I thought that the old newspaper still didn’t look old enough, so I rubbed some brown gel stain onto the paper…and I really liked how it turned out.
I now have another Pear to add to my collection…and for now, it is on the shelf above the sofa in the living room.
My little grandson’s birthday was today and his birthday party is on Saturday…I can’t believe that he is 4 years old…time sure goes by so quickly. I will be working on his cake for the next couple of days and will be back soon with photos to share of his fire truck cake and cupcakes.
Until then……. farmhouse blessings, Cindy
