Fall Las Vegas Visit

  Just found this post and saw that it never published  --
 so a touch of Fall a little early.
Blessing Reminder Shadow box for daughter Laura-
 taken from a first apartment to her new home
 to remind her of God's faithfulness in her life.
Mantel with Fall Thanksgiving Garland-- 
add tags each year of gifts and thank yous
add copies of vintage Thanksgiving cards
Assorted collection of "family" pumpkins
 with vintage botanical unframed
Empty frame keeps mantel from feeling
 too "heavy" yet fills in space
Love the mantel painted white!!!!
Vintage floral prints frame out
 a vignette of collected treasures
An artist's collection of tools for a spot to draw or doodle
 Trays and wood boxes contain the clutter and a cross collection covers all
Laura D. Schumacher design
 pottery bowl with gourds
Needed to fill a big space in a new home and took flea market black and white prints and mounted them on canvases wrapped with free Donghia fabric swatches to enlarge the wall grouping without a big expense
Original Laura D. Schumacher watercolor -
 Remember the East Coast colors 
WE fell in love with this pin and made our own version-- we sewed the rows and used 3 fabrics: burlap, onasburg and unbleached muslin on oatmeal felt.  Ohhhh!

Thrift store candles became something special when we used  Mod Podge and rolled them in Epsom Salt.
 Who would have thought!
A visit to the home of a daughter and her husband filled the end of October days with laughing, a football game, good food, treasure hunting and "pinning".  It is fun to see her style develop and what she likes and how they choose to "create home". The ingenuity that comes with a smaller budget is fun to see the projects develop into something all are proud of and enhances their living space. In our short time together we even managed to do some actual projects from things we had pinned on Pinterest.
 What memories!!
Denninger Style is morphing into Schumacher style  but it has a BIG D! CAn't wait till my next visit.
