Thursday Things

Added at 7:00pm.
I got my country living magazine today. And there is a nice T2T article on page 134. I'm humbled by this ladies creations. This is a pic of some drawer pulls from the magazine. Does anyone know where I might find these?

Tina of Stitchin in Texas Blog and I met up today for some chocolate.

Oh and we had lunch too. It was a nice visit, Thanks Tina for meeting up with me.

as promised, here is the decopage project, I was inspired by something I saw on Fifi's blog. These are just plastic, I didn't find any metal ones, but I'm keeping my eye out. And as a first try I'm pretty pleased.
The musical ones are from an old hymnal, and the other one is genuine old stamps.
The one with the type letters on it, spells JOY.

And now for some news. DH found out about this great sale in the paper.

Over 250 miles on Historic US 80 from Mesquite, Texas to Monroe, LA. and beyond as far as Delhi to the East and vendors in Grand Prairie in the West...will once again be lined with goods in a yard sale format for one weekend in October, according to sponsor East Texas Tourism Association (ETTA) in Longview, Texas.

mmm - I'll have to go get my mag and look. It's by my bed - I've been looking at it the past two nights, but I haven't made it that far before I fell asleep!

The decopage projects look great in person!

Hope you have good luck with that HI-WAY 80 sale. Dh and I did that a couple of years ago, and it was a bust for us. For starters it was raining, then the sales were few and far, far between. I think we found maybe 3 in 20 miles before we gave up. I'll be curious to see how you do.

Lunch was great! We need to do it again sometime - soon!

Will you let us know if you find out anything about the knobs? I didn't even see them in the magazine. I suppose we could decoupage on flat, wooden knobs, but I'd rather find those, hadn't you?
