I started with the fireplace last week. Please ignore all the cords in the pictures, I need to do something about that! I just can't right now, I'm kind of busy with pumpkins.
I got the inspiration for this from Choose To Thrive. I used wine bottles instead of jars like she did and then used vinyl for the letters. I ripped pumpkin fabric in strips and wrapped it around the top.
That is an antique lamp post shade that Greg and I got from a barn a long time ago. I had to sit it in that old metal pot that I was lucky to find because it's actually upside down and won't sit flat.
That poor little girl is one of those projects that is so cute, but you only do once because it was so painful you can't go through the agony again! I made her probably 20 years ago and my mom and Greg thought I was nuts because everyone wanted to buy one from me. I told them that unless they had a million dollars, forget it!! Now that I think about it, I made an Annie doll for Krissi that was the same way!
I would show you the top of the fireplace (mantel, as some people call it), but it's not done yet!
I'll be linking Here this week.
