weekends with tater

No Comments »

So on Saturday, this thing called "snow" happened again. I was not prepared to see it. Wet, heavy and gloppy, it fell like snowballs to the earth. Very beautiful to watch. Even my beabull Tater was excited to watch it (or to watch the neighbor's dobermans). In any case, it was a surprising and beautiful thing to behold.

I saw this one the day after I posted the other one…also inspiring, especially for this time of year with dirty snow and dead plants.
This treasury is curated by Emily Thomson on Etsy. She featured by butterfly embroidery hoop, which you can purchase here

Recently, my butterfly embroidery hoop was included in this etsy treasury by kim and I just loved the elegant look of the treasury and the way the colors complimented each other. I hope this inspires you on this rainy, rainy Wednesday.

I had this idea that was swirling around in my brain for a while. I was not quite sure how to do it or where to begin. Then I saw these lovely signs on Instagram that Rebecca Caridad made on Manzanita and I was floored. How perfect are they?? 

As they were selling for $100 at the time (now that she's opened her paperie shop, they're $120), I thought there was no way to afford them and thought I would make a more imperfect version DIY my own. There was just one problem…I didn't know how to do calligraphy! Then along came this other DIY that I came across on Pinterest. Bingo! Follow the link to read how to make your own beautiful sign by Tammy at Homespun Happenings.

My sign idea came from lyrics of what we consider "our" song…Nirvana's "Drain You". The states of MA and NH are made of cork board; you could buy them from my shop here. For winter, I topped the sign with white bottle brush trees, available at Michael's.

P.S. If I ever have the money, I will totally have Rebecca make me some wedding signs. They are gorgeous!! Also, please note that I was not compensated in any way for this post. I just loved this DIY and wanted to share my results.
