So I'm going to post pictures of what I did yesterday and be back tomorrow with more details. I made 3 more pumpkins - one that I stained (unsuccessfully in my opinion). I tried to create a little fall make-do which I am still pondering about so if you have suggestions they are more than welcome. And I also created 3 grungy sunflowers. They look a little wilty, but I have some ideas to try for the next round. I kind of like them floppy to tell the truth.
|I LOVE the candles and holders I found at my favorite shop - Stonewall Craftique! |
I am so lucky that it's only 20 minutes or so from my house - and on the way to work. :D
The candles are on a timer so they come on at the same time every day and turn off 5 hours later.
Batteries last lots longer because I don't have to remember to twist the candle off at night - which I rarely remember to do.
Best part is they were cheaper than some of the non-timer candles I've seen.
These were only $5.95
|I think I will grunge this one up because I really don't like how the staining turned out!|
|The one on the far right is my first one. I love the taller one. I used a different fabric for the second from the right. |
It's called Castle, I think. I have had it for a long time.
|Too grungy? Not sure, but they smell WONDERFUL!|
