Vintage Fall Garlands...

Hey everyone.  Fall is approaching and as much as I love Summer, I embrace all the seasons that we are blessed with.  I'm adding a few Fall touches here and there to the house.  I've always loved this two tiered wire basket and I look forward to filling it with new and old items every season. This year I filled it with gourds from my vine garden, an ironstone pitcher full of dried pods and a deer shed, thrift store soup mugs and vintage scenery postcards.  Candles are always a pretty way to decorate and also make your house smell so warm and cozy.  
 You might notice my chalkboard and my new Fall Garland.  I made some from vintage sheets for Josey's graduation and just loved them.  I thought some Fall themed ones were in order.
 I'll be making a few for my chalkboards and fireplace mantel and I've added some to my shop too.
 Mostly all vintage fabrics in the prettiest, warm colors that will take you right through Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Perfect for chalkboards, mantels, over a grouping of framed photos or artwork, on a staircase, over a headboard.  Add some twinkling lights and you've got the makings of a little shindig.  Drape them outside between trees or on your porch.  Hang them from the center for more of a vertical look.  You get 6' of garland with two extra feet of twine on the ends to extend the garland to a longer length if you wish.
There's just a few listed for now so grab one just in time for the Fall festivities.  Enjoy!

Also, if you've ever wanted to try Instagram, it's a wonderful social community.  I post a lot about my home, projects and artwork over there.  My name is MishWooderson if you'd like to find me.

Also if you're looking for a great online art community, Jeanne Oliver's website is a fantastic resource.  She is so down to earth and has art classes and all kinds of other fun classes to inspire.  Right now I'm loving the Art of Home class that is all about creating an inviting environment in your home.  The Woodland Girl class is also a favorite, perfect if you want to enjoy some nature this Fall.

I've been canning up a storm this Summer as my garden had some bumper crops of peppers and tomatoes.  This recipe for Roasted Red Pepper Ravioli is divine and so easy to make.  Red peppers are so pricey during the Winter months here.  I decided to broil and skin all of them and freeze in individual baggies just so I could make this meal.  It's a favorite of mine.  Here's the direct blog link.
Okie doke guys......I'm going to try to get back into sharing more on the blog but I have to be honest with gets lonely in blog land with hardly any comments or interaction.  That's why I love Instagram so much.  You can see who likes your photos and comments are easy to leave.  But I know a lot of you don't have Instagram and still like to read blogs.  So we'll see how it goes.  I'll still be posting more photos over on my Instagram account so be sure to check it out over there too.  Thank you as always for visiting and I know it's a pain to leave comments....I'm bad about it too.  I so appreciate all of you that take the time to leave a few nice words.  I do love to hear what you're up to also as the sharing is what I love about social media.  Until next time, take care!

September Gossamer Blue Blog Hop....

Hello and welcome to the September Gossamer Blue Design Team Blog Hop. Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I created using the September kits.  
 I love to just pick out a favorite product and see where it takes me.  I think the dye dipped fabric tags are so fun.  I started with them as my bottom layer and just added elements on top.
 I love the combination of the textured canvas tag, the glittery dots, the clear acetate triangles and the popped up chipboard birdies.  I added a generic sentiment using my vintage typewriter.  Two more for the card stash.
There's plenty more inspiration today so be sure to cruise on through to these Design Team blogs:

September Gossamer Blue projects..

Welcome September! The new release is up over at Gossamer Blue.  Lots and lots of fun new products.  This month I concentrated on cards as thank you notes are always needed.  The girls go through them quickly with graduations, birthdays, etc.  For my cards today I used the Bits & Pieces Kit.  

Lots of fun papers from the 6 x 6 paper pad.  
 I cut one sheet up to get all the cut little tag looking embellishments.
 The tassels were extra fun, I just stapled them to my card front.
 For each card, I typed "thank you" onto some scrap paper and then popped them up on pop dots.
 I like to mix and match papers for a quirky look.
 A fun little set to add to my stash.  Lots of texture and dimension yet they all still fit into a regular card envelope.  I'm set for a while.
I'll be back soon to share more of my September Gossamer Blue creations.  Thanks for stopping by!
