The Aftermath!


Whew! What a great sale we had at Room With A Past! Here's the "before" of my spot!

And "After"! I sold so much I had to bring a few things in from the Parking Lot Sale just to fill my space!!!

Hope you can make the next one--October 18- 20th. The whole store will be TRICKED out for Halloween!

Here's My Spot!

Whooo whooo whooo knows what time it is? It's time for the September sale at Room With A Past!

I finished setting up my little spot on Monday! Here's a sneak peek!

I had fun drawing a Fall-themed picture on the door-turned-chalkboard!

I stayed with a yellow, gold-beigey, brown and white color scheme.

Can you see the vintage hats? I have three of them plus a leaf headband. (You can click on the pictures to see them larger).

The radio is old but it still works (just like me!) Hope you can make it in Sept. 20 - 23rd. Don't forget the last PARKING LOT SALE will be going on Saturday and Sunday--the last one until next summer!

Fall In Love With Paper Leaves

Are you ready for some fall color but the leaves on the trees are still green? With some help from the printed craft paper and a few colorful Middy Bitty Bags made by Whisker Graphics you can have a whole pile of leaves! Here's how I made this DIY paper leaf garland:


Middy Bitty bags (I used 11 bags total for a garland four feet long)
Fun shaping scissors
Tag board for template
Length of ribbon for base
glue gun

I made a couple of different leaf shapes drawn on tag board to use as a template. Trace the leaf shape on to desired patterned bags and cut out. Pinking shears or shaping scissors add another dimension to the leaves.

Fold some of the leaves you cut out to add fullness to your garland. Begin hot gluing onto a sturdy ribbon, positioning the leaves at different angles as you add them.

Make your garland as long as you want! I left a bit of ribbon exposed at each end so if I want, I can conceal a pushpin through it for hanging!

I may cut out some more to glue all over the top of some big pumpkins! Now make like a crafter and LEAVE!
