OK, I admit it. I’ve been suckered into the Halloween hype. Brought on by the brilliant advertising marketers. Isn’t the Halloween stuff in the stores adorable? Of course it is. They KNOW that we can’t possibly pass on something adorable! At the end of the season last year I even bought a black Halloween tree~Looks suspiciously like a Christmas tree….but it’s black. (Although I did see some black, pink and lime green Christmas trees at Hobby Lobby yesterday) I even saw black and orange tree ornaments for Christmas trees!?!?! YUK.
Here’s what I’ve done so far as far as crafting goes. I will post all of this on my Etsy shop after it’s all finished. www.shabbysheepwool.etsy.com This started about Wednesday. No dinners this week~needless to say!
Then it progressed to this~
I switched gears for a while and painted some ornies for the tree. These were the clear glass balls you squirt paint into and swirl around. It’s harder than it looks! I like them OK. Not in love though.
When I was leaving Hobby Lobby yesterday, I happened to look down the aisle where the fake fruit is. I saw these little oranges and they looked like pumpkins to me! After a little imagination and paint, that is. They are now Jack-O-Lanterns! And at half price. Those of you who know me know I NEVER buy anything full price! But I’ll buy it on sale whether I need it or not. I hot glued some raffia on top for hangers.
I got the paper mache’ things finished this evening. The tall glittery things with witch’s pictures are candles in glass jars!
Enough about me. I have got to share with you this picture of THE UGLIEST SOFA AND LOVESEAT I have ever seen! This is for sale at a flea market/antique store by me. I asked the owner if I could go home and get my camera to take the pic. He laughed and said sure. (He thinks it will sell since we’re just down the street from Bass Pro Shops and it’s almost deer season) I sure feel sorry if the guy who gets this is married. Another man saw me taking the picture and said, “I guess it would look good in a hunting cabin”. I think he thought I was taking the picture ‘cause I liked it! I quickly told him otherwise and he seemed relieved!
Have a great rest of the weekend. And think twice before marrying a deer hunter! The tag says this was custom made!
