I hope you are having a great day! After being gone for 2 weeks, I am still trying to get into the swing of things! I would much rather spend my time blogging than unpacking the rest of our motor home, not to mention all of the yard clean up that I need to do for fall! I thought I would share with you today some cute little pails that I made a few weeks ago for my Etsy shop. I had so much fun making them!
I decoupaged copies of vintage Halloween images, then added some Martha Stewart glitter. Where would I be without Mod Podge and glitter?! I used some of the wonderful crinkly seam binding ( that I purchased from Blue Bird Lane on Etsy) on the handles. I adore the seam binding, and in fact have almost used all of it up! So I just had to place another order yesterday, in some pretty and yummy colors, plus more of the Halloween colors. I think it has become my latest addiction!!
I just love these sweet little images!
I also made glittered tags for each pail. Below you will see how the pails looked when I first spied them at a garage sale. They were just begging for a makeover! This was such a fun project, I think that I'll make some for Christmas, too (because it's just right around the corner, you know!!)
The other day, I shared with you some (ok, a ton!) of pictures from our trip to Michigan's gorgeous Upper Peninsula. Today I thought I would show you some more.
Believe it or not, there are miles and miles of beautiful sandy beaches in the U.P. The area is known for it's agate stones, and rock hunting on the beach is very popular. We collected some pretty stones, and we have a rock tumbler, so I need to get busy and get them polished (the entire tumbling process takes a month!).
At the Porcupine Mountains State Park, where we camped 2 nights, we climbed a big tower to see a fantastic view. This is part of the boardwalk thru the woods approaching the tower.
I hope you have a wonderful day, can't wait to get caught up with you all!
