I carried around this frame with the mystery lady inside for the longest time. It was time for a makeover. I fixed the frame up a little, painted it white, and then turned it into a chalkboard.
I had to do something with Ms. Mystery, so I
stole borrowed this idea from October's Country Living. I didn't want to destroy her, so I folded over the sticky part of a post-it note to attach the construction paper mask and bat. She's all ready for her Halloween costume party.
A small chunk of the design on this frame was missing, so I built it back up, painted it, and added the chalkboard.
This old razor, complete with box and directions, makes an unusual picture holder. I added this photo to the outside of where the razor would go, and then locked it in. The shaving lotion brush also holds a picture.
I salvaged 4 of the drawers from a dresser I bought at the city wide sale last month. The top of the dresser was coming off, so I pieced it all out. I used Mod Podge to attach the vintage sheet music in each drawer and then put a hook on the back so it can be used as a shelf. The bottle is a recent find. I tied it up with some vintage lace, sewed on a rhinestone button, and added a few shells.
These little pumpkins say TRICK OR TREAT on the other side. I sprayed them with a clear matte sealer after stamping them.
Since I was by myself, I didn't get a chance to get out for some visiting and shopping. I always like to get out to see what goodies other vendors brought to sell. Pleasanton also has some really fun shops, but I can check those out another time.
