I haven't really had time to garage sale the past couple of weeks, but I did swing into one yesterday. I snagged a great cabinet for my future craft room, but didn't have a way to get it home. The lady is the mother-in-law of a friend, so she is holding it for me until we can get back with the trailer. Soooo...I don't have any pictures yet...oh, but wait! I did pick up these two pitchers. I heart the blue polka dotted one. It still has the Hallmark price tag on the bottom of $24.95. Cost me $3.00...in perfect condition. I just popped my 'almost done' roses from my birthday, along with a few fresh peonies in the pitcher for this shot. The arrangement leaves a little to be desired, but I love them anyway.
What I really wanted to show you was a project my daughter did some time ago. When my father-in-law passed away a couple of years ago, my mother-in-law started giving some of his things to her kids. She was just going to throw away this old, broken, folding ruler, but Mr. Greenwillow brought it home. So glad he did. This is what Jamie did with it. I thought it was adorable...and I thought you might think so too.
She used photo corners, adhered to the back of the ruler, so that she could change out the scrapbook paper whenever she wanted. She says it doesn't stay in very well, but maybe they just need to be adjusted. You could also glue or use photo tape on it.
Time to put my nose back on that old grindstone. Later gater.
I linked this project to these parties. Be sure to check them out for tons of great ideas!
