Old jars, books, a #2 pencil and candlelight!
Just happened to have some green apples at home... at first I thought red, but the green was more springy looking! The fortune tellers were in Flea Market Style Magazine.
Each table was simular to this one. Burlap with just a few of my Momas old books!  I cut up a cardboard egg carton to hold the egg and added epsom salt in the Mason Jars. 
This is an old birdcage, bought for 3.00 at First Monday, It was originally shiny gold, was thinking hanging lamp when I purchased it. I put it on a marble based stand picked up from Goodwill and painted. It has two candles, homemade confetti, and the egg planter with flower, anchored it on some of the libraries old books.
These were on each side of the birdcage. I loved the little wired bees, got a whole box of them for a quarter gargage saling this weekend.  The old mason jar lids are just right for tea lights.  I took the mirrors off my wall! Tee Hee.

Well, another party, but this one was a goodbye party for the librian.  So, I chose a garden theme with old books... I loved the fortune tellers and books because it made it more personal.  On the fortune tellers I wrote "Write your life story" "Your story begins anew" "I see bright carreer opurtunities in your future" "I see anew adventure coming your way" and others like that.

I want to get them and make a fountain mount a mirror and sink above tub and have the water shoot up through the sink and back into the tub! Great find. Your little house, what do you plan on doing with it? I want a 10x10 shed that looks like a playhouse with a half loft for storage, as my office in my backyard facing the alley. Po'Folks Creations. Where are the cheapest sheds? I have been looking online for months!!!I would paint your shed, depression green with creamy white shutters, vintage door, window boxes, an old bike leaning against it with a wire/moss basket holding red and white petunias. Put an old playing card and clothespin on the spokes. There are kits for 40.00 for a chimney if you want to do red and white and make it a tiny school house with a bell on top (ebay)print faces of kids from the 30's and 40's and have them peaking out the windows. How did you start your business? Did you get a grant or loan? I have wanted a little playhouse store to sell my creations out of forever! Don't want to get a business loan. Could you give me some pointers? Thanks, I always enjoy your posts. Annie (PoFolksDecorator1) Posted: 1:48 pm on March 28th
