FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

Thinking Fall

         FINALLY! No rain yet, but wonderful cooler temperatures. I so wish it stays like this longer. After months of over 100 degrees weather today it feels like heaven. Some of you have probably heard the news,  Central Texas is burning, 600 homes and some fatalities. It really breaks one's heart to imagine what this folks are going thru. Every time I go outside I can smell and see smoke and you get so scare. This morning I walked the property with my dog, scouting, praying we don't get into the same trouble. Everything is so dry after seasons of no rain. Please pray for some relief for Texas from this crazy weather.
        Onto lighter and happier news; I'm crafting again! I'm excited with all the ideas that keep popping in my mind, which of course means that I'm getting no sleep. When I get into creative spells I get so inspired that I can't control thinking about new projects and then the insomnia monster gets me. Let me show you my latest creations; PUMPKINS, all glittered and bling up. Tell me what you think.
Get your pumpkins, remove the plastic stock and replace it with cut out pieces of  wood trunk. My fall color palette doesn't include any orange so I painted all my pumpkins white or cream.
                            Who said diamonds are girls best friend? Glitter is to me and much, much cheaper.
Gather your materials. I make my own tags with stamps and my Mac is my best friend when it comes down to cute prints. I have all sorts of scissors with deco edges and punchers. I don't think I will be buying a Cricutt, too expensive and I get most of the effects with simple tools.

 Dress those babies up. The sky is the limit here. I'm also planing on covering some of the pumpkins with fabric and paper.








 So, what you think? Till next project...btw I will be selling this babies in my shop and at the mall Downtown. Blessings, Marta.

My heart goes out to those in TX
my Dad is down there and has been dealing with the drought . My concern is for him and his ranch now.
I think positive thoughts that all will be okay.

LOVE your pumpkins! They would go perfect in my decor, which is mostly white. My fall decor is all white. I made a 'Mum-kin' so far this year. I will have to get out of my blogging slump and post it.
Thank you so very much for sharing.
