$4's and a Display Later

Brrrrrr..... Good Morning to you.  It is sooooo cold out today.  I froze my fanny off taking my kids to school this morning.  That used to be one of my nick names in school. "Fanny" short for Stephani (no e on the end).  Yesterday GW was calling my name and now I know why.  I found a few great things to show you.  The lady ringing me up asked what the mold was.  I told her I was going to make wax corn on the cob with it and she just stared at me then put it in the bag without a word.  I am a sucker for primitive art and was so thrilled to find four prints on metal slates.  Then this wall hanging of course had to go in the cart too.

So, this morning in less than an hour, I sanded and stained it up and found a place for it in the upstairs family room.  I grabbed a wooden bowl that was just laying around (Halloween decor took it's place) and grabbed a few twigs of garland off of a wreath and wala.  

Then I tore down some ugly swag stuff I had above the upstairs hall closet and replaced it with my paintings. 

I hope you all have a happy Wednesday.  It will be busy here.  I have to volunteer at the school all afternoon and make it to the fabric store for some items.  I hope to get some ditty bags made with Christmas Santa's to go inside by the end of the week.  By By.

Oh I LOVE my corn mold. I have fun when I go to the check out at Goodwill with something really ugly and the girl just looks at me like I'm crazy. Then I explain I'll redo itinto something else and she still doesn't get it. lol

That Thanksgiving set is wonderful and you have stored it away beautifully to be in such great shape.
