This morning I dropped my teen boy's off at their friends' farm and headed into a neighbouring town for a little Saturday shopping. Not the grocery store/chore kind of shopping, but the fun craft store and home decor kind.
At one of my favourite cafe/home accents/gift stores, A Country Mile in Milton, Ontario, I bought these two distressed black petite signs. 'Best Dog Ever' is a cute little wood picture frame that I will add a picture of our dog to. The 'Expect Great Things' is a tiny metal sign and I like that it looks like a mini chalkboard. I also enjoyed leisurely browsing through the store and then enjoying a maple coffee and peanut butter and banana wrap -yum!
The next stop was Michaels Craft store for some sale items. I picked up some pretty 12" scrapbook papers at 6/$1 (reg 99 cents each.) I'm on a mission to add more of my favourite watery blues to our home.
I also added some more craft paints to my supply. The trio of wooden trays were $4 at a new thrift store in another town. Hopefully I can share my finished project later in the week.
I did finish this little sign with hooks. It is a copy cat idea but I'm afraid I can't remember the source. The hooks were less than $2/pair at Home Depot and I used a scrap of pine. The paint and wax I had on hand. Now I need to decide where to hang it and the petite signs. Don't you just love some 'me' time browsing your favourite stores and getting your craft on?
