(i think i just gained 15 pounds writing that)
and thank you for popping here when you do. i know i’m not the most dependable of bloggers lately but i do appreciate your sweet notes. thank you my friends!!
sometimes it’s the quick projects that can completely make my day. thanksgiving decor doesn’t really consist of much around here. some vintage turkey platters, some owl candles i scored at cost plus a few years ago and a few vintage beistle cutouts. i don’t know what it is about thanksgiving decor but i find most of it to be way too cutesy for my taste. i’ve been looking for some mercury glass inspired pieces this year, in a bronze & copper colorway, but haven’t found much that i like, so i haven’t gotten anything. whoa says me. yay says the husband. ;)
this banner however was a quick fix for the second fireplace mantel. the one that tends to be forgotten and under used. hence the lack of wall decor above it.
i have a big bin of two different styles of vintage general store signage that i scored at alameda on two separate occasions. usually i pick a word and have it hanging out on top of the bricks. this time i decided to hang it with some old twine and some clothespins. easy and fast and totally made my grateful heart’s day.
happy weekend my friends!
