This week I have a bunch of fun stuff
going on! I'm even trying to tea stain...
Key word being... TRYING.
I've been asked again to decorate for an
event at Bebe's school. My creative
brain just can't say no!
I thrive on this kind of stuff. Sometimes
it is a little stressful, but mostly fun.
Or else, I wouldn't do it.
The theme has to do with the US Constitution.
Anyway, so I attempted to tea stain
some patriotic fabric. Not a real flag, mind you,
so don't email me and say I was destroying the flag!
(Obviously this is on my mind)
Anyway, the tea did not take.
The fabric looks the same as
before I put it in the pot of
steamy hot water.
Maybe the fabric was treated?
Didn't boil it enough?
Not enough tea bags?
Will have to research this later...
I also found (among our own stuff,)
a neat collection of reproduction
old American documents.
Then I had an idea... the light bulb clicked!
At each table, have a feather with a "We the People"
tag on it... as a reminder of the signing of this
Add an old glass inkwell, old spectacles and "Voila!"
I'll be back later on with photos
of how it turned out.
Don't forget.... tomorrow is my
"Let's Talk Vintage" linky party!
Feel free to link up your posts.
Projects, vintage stuff you sell,
things you collect, things you love...
Tomorrow morning at 9 AM!
(Still trying to figure out how to do
the "code" for the logo/button... bear with me!)
