Good morning! I can hardly believe that I posted one day and then turned around and the month is just about over. When I posted my last project for the Quietfire/Walnut Hollow Blog Hop, I truly had all intentions of posting again within the next day or two. In my mind, I was going to create another project similar to the one for the hop . . .
I turned around and here it is a few weeks later, the middle of October and everything I had planned just didn’t come together!
I have a family reunion this weekend and one of the highlights is an auction to raise funds for cemetery maintenance/upkeep. Last year was the first time I attended and didn’t know what to expect, so I didn’t take anything handmade. This year . . . well it’s a little different!
Instead of recreating the wheel this early in the morning (another of those best laid plans), I’m going to point you to the Quietfire Creations Blog to see the step-outs I did for the Walnut Hollow Blog Hop.
As with the other project, the wood sign is from Walnut Hollow. It was painted, antiqued and then sanded with my palm sander. Okay I’ll admit it . . . I’m hooked on the palm sander to distress! I’ve even gone around the house and sanded some shelves that I had previously painted that I felt needed more of a “worn” look. We can thank Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s Fixer Upper for that tip!
I hope y’all have a fabulous day!
