DECORATING

Sence we decided to close the gift shop we now get the chance to decorate with some of the crafts and items we had left over. I thought we would share some with you. Maybe you will be inspired, too. This white birch bark canoe is one of my favorite items to decorate for any reason what so ever. The green and pink flower items I bought on clearance at Walmart. Do you notice the very old beeskep?? Also, there are two circus wooden rings. We had alot of vintage flour sifters left over, I decided to put this plant in one.
This old watering can has some of our famous magnets on it. We used monolopy game pieces and put magnets on the backs, these were popular in our shop, here is a couple that were left over. When we would go
to craft shows this is exactally how we would display them (on this can) This was an item for sale in our shop, teddy bears in flour sifters, we had teddy bears in laddles and canning jars.
Here are a few antique wooden shoes in a very old wooden bowl. We would display items in our wooden bowls, everyone wanted to know if the bowls were for sale. (if something was not for sale, most people would want it, go figure)
Thanks for stopping by.
