entrance to back patio

found two posts (railroad ties) cemented into two holes and secured them with a Welcome Friends sign. The other side of the sign is a shabby chic mirror.
I hung twine, used my staple gun to hold it up and clothespinned some of my apron collection as window coverings.
This is definately the craziest chandelier I have made. Wire fencing into a circle shape, hung vintage tiny baby books from tops and tied glass insulators with babys breath around the bottom. Background is the 6 foot fence with silverware screwed into it and tab top curtains hanging from them. The tiebacks are fake pearl necklaces.
this is the gramma porch divider I hung a vintage screen, and old screen door. Before it was all open and 3 steps down into another room.
Heres the border Dick and Jane that I finally got posted. cut the pages out of a book dipped them in starch, edged with vintage rickrack held up by push pins that I glued buttons on.

These are all my own crazy ideas. I am starting a decorating business in the small town I live in. Saving up for a playhouse for my office. Love this site.
