On my way to a garage sale I drove by this site. Not sure why they are watering the field cuz we've had plenty of rain around here? Kinda seems like a waste to me.
After taking the pictures of the 'sprinkler', I had to stop for a train. Some of the cars were 'decorated' elaborately. I guess that's one way to advertise your talent. (lol) Some of the cars were really pretty.
Some call these selvedges and some call them mill ends. I call them potential rugs. I have a loom and I weave these into rag rugs. They turn out fluffy. They've been a big hit at the craft shows. The rag rugs made out of old blue jeans are still a staple tho. I've got plenty of blue jeans from family and friends but I don't have the time to cut them up, sew together and then weave them so I'm going the faster and easier route.
Oops, I almost forgot to take a before picture. I started to prime and then remembered to take a picture.
This is the embossed wallpaper that is in my soon to be craft room. I wanted light colors to make the room bright and cheery but I'm not liking how it turned out. I've done a hallway with an embossed wallpaper and it turned out fabulous, but this one didn't. Maybe the colors are too closely related. This picture may look okay but the overall appearance of the room doesn't. So I just gave up on the room for now. It will probably be a couple of weeks before I get back to it.
This is a quick project I did the other day. The apple plaque is a piece of slate. I put the two together and this is how it turned out.....
I just turned the slate over and put it on top of the little table (or maybe it's a plant stand, I don't know). The two taller flowers in the vase are made of glass and the shorter one is made of metal.
Wow, I'm getting tired just recapping on what I've been doing. I think I better stop there. I had better get to work now.
Hope you all have a nice weekend.
