Decorate your front porch with a ladder for fall.
I had an old wooden ladder in my garage that had been used so many times for painting that you could no longer see the original wood surface. It was still quite sturdy, but we didn’t use it anymore because it was so ugly. I couldn’t bring myself to throw out a perfectly good ladder so I decided to give it a make-over for fall decorating.
You can find my tutorial here.
Whew! Yawn! Wow!
The last month has been exhausting with preparing for and having a yard sale, as well as preparing for and participating in two craft shows. The last craft show was this past weekend, but I am just now getting my act together. Well, sort of…I’ve been shaking off fatigue for days. (sigh) With that in mind, I’m a little late in posting some of the new projects I’ve finished. Many of these are already gone, thanks to the “Fall Into The Holidaze” craft show this past weekend.

Leaf Rake Door Wreath
And another Leaf Rake Door Wreath
Scrap Wood Crows and Cats
Block Candle Holders
Witch Boot Bowl Fillers
Window Cabinet (my hubby’s creation)
It started out with a simple old window.
I posted photos of my fabric pumpkins a couple of weeks ago. They sold really well at a craft show that I also mentioned in that post. I knew I would need to make more for a show I have this weekend.
A friend (Thank you, Laurie!) suggested I use my stash of chenille bedspreads for some of my pumpkins. These are the white ones.
My favorite color is pink, so I also had to try pink chenille pumpkins. I love them. Wouldn’t hurt my feelings if they didn’t sell. I could definitely decorate with these.
Of course mixed together they also look pretty sweet.
And away we go! This week I’ve been working on things for my first craft show of the season. It’s at The Last Run Car Show in Arkansas City, Kansas this weekend.
In previous posts I mentioned last weekend I had a yard sale. It was a great sale, but don’t let nobody tell you that having a yard sale is easy money. It’s a lot of work! I have muscles that ache where I didn’t even know I had muscles. Needless to say, I would much rather shop a yard sale than have one. Since we didn’t get through everything, and we have stuff left over, hubby says we definitely need to have another one before the snow flies. We’ll see.
In preparation for this craft show coming up, I have been stitching, painting and gluing just about everything I can get my hands on.

There is lots and lots more. We packed the trailer at the store last night. If you are in my area this weekend, stop in and check it out.
UPDATE: The show was fantastic!
