We don’t have a Hobby Lobby in my town, and that might be a good thing…at least from a spending standpoint. We do have two of them within 45 minute drives of our house, though. Anytime I have to make a trip into either of those towns, I try to stop by.
I recently went into Hobby Lobby with my aunt and found so many things I wanted to buy. I didn’t, but I really wanted to.
For instance, this wall of pumpkins:
So many cute and interesting pumpkins- I bought a few of them, but they were not on sale.
I did find some cuteness that WAS on sale, though. I’m in the process of creating a new coffee bar, and “The Lobby” did not disappoint.
I have wanted one of these canisters forever. I did not buy it yet, but plan to wait until we finish our kitchen construction. It’s very well made and looks perfectly vintage, even though it isn’t. The bread box is cool too.
This coffee sign made me laugh and would look lovely in my coffee bar.
I’m gearing up for quite the busy week. My children are back in school and my students are back in my classroom. In spite of all the busyness, I wanted to share some inspiration I found on Pinterest this week…Pin-spiration, if you will 😁.
First up is this lovely room. I chose it because of its rustic wood ladder and chippy furniture. This look would be easy to create and wouldn’t cost much.
You may recall when I made the folk art-inspired flag from paint sticks this summer. My folk art flag was beginning to fall apart and it had passed its phase of being useful…so I decided to repurpose it.
I started by taking the flag apart. See the paint? I didn’t bother taking the paint off since the sticks would be covered with burlap.
I laid it out in a star pattern and hot glued it together.
Then I began wrapping the star in wide burlap ribbon, taking the time to glue it at each pass. It took a long time and lots of ribbon, but when I finished, I had this:
I’m planning to hang it up and hang a wreath in the center of it. Isn’t it cute?
