old book score

Hello there!
 
Last summer on a shopping trip with my Mom I found the greatest thrifty buy ever. We went to a small town about an hour north of where we live that has an amazing lavender farm and a ton of artsy shops and antique shops.
 
While browsing through one of the shops, the store owner told us that there was a shelf at the back where everything was a dollar. That peeked my interest so I went and took a look.
 
I found about a hundred old books. For a dollar each!

velvet pumpkins

Hi there!
 
Today I want to share another craft that I did a bit ago that I first saw on Pinterest - velvet pumpkins. I loved the idea of having a d├ęcor item for fall that wouldn't rot on me and would be pet/kid friendly.
 
I didn't take pictured during or write a tutorial because there are so many out there. I followed this tutorial from Celebrate Creativity in All it's Forms.
 
It is explained very well and has great step by step pictures. After the first one, they will be a breeze! The hardest step will be finding pumpkin stems and drying them out! (To note, I collected them the year before and let them dry out for months)
