Flannel Covered Books for Autumn Décor

Flannel Covered Books for Autumn Décor

I think it’s high time I create another flannel project, don’t you? The weather is finally feeling Fall-ish and I am craving all the cozy plaid…and today’s project also has a special twist. All of my project materials came from thrift stores that benefit an animal-based charity! I’ve partnered with several other bloggers to highlight these lesser-known thrift stores with a collection of fun transformation projects.Read more ›

I’d been looking for a way to try out alcohol ink paints for a long time…and wouldn’t this piece be a great opportunity to play around with them? Read more ›

Horse Brass Tablecloth Weights

I don’t exactly know why, but when I think of anything horse-related, I imagine it in an autumn setting. I can’t really explain why this is, and maybe it makes no sense…but when I think of horses, I think of plaid blankets, leather accessories, and crisp Fall air. I know, it’s silly- but I can’t disconnect the two!

So, when I was at a thrift store the other day, rifling through one of their “Rummage Boxes”, I spotted a vintage horse brass…and then I saw a whole collection of them. I held them in my palm for a moment, running my hands over the smooth glowing medal, transferring their weight from hand to hand, and an idea came to mind. And in automatic Sadie fashion, I knew it was meant to be an autumn project.Read more ›
