Pumpkin Time

I love Fall, the cool crisp air and pumpkins everywhere. The changing colors of the leaves scattered all over the ground.

We hope you come in and visit with us.

Our fire is looking cozy for Fall!
Our fire is looking cozy for Fall! We want to invite all of our customers to come out to visit SOSNM during this beautiful time of the year.

Our shop looks like a pretty fall day. We have changed our displays and added beautiful merchandise.

Great Sales , don’t miss them.

Pictures below are:

The outfit is featured in a store in Ocean View, DE, Interiors by Kim:Kim’s Korner. Stop by lots of accessories, collectables, and furnishings for all homes. Turnkey decorating is available.

The other photo shows Black Crow Candles. Super smelling and long burning candles. Stay tune for a very special addition to this line of candles.

Our last photo is my weathered pumpkin. Quick and easy DIY.

Take a plastic pumpkin, paint it whatever color you desire.

Let it dry, then take a light sandpaper and weather your pumpkin.

I liked sanding around the face and grooves of the pumpkin. Final step, antique it with a stain or diluted brown paint. Wipe off the access. Let it dry. This is a cute and easy project. Send pictures. So we can post.

Come in and check out the arrival of new pumpkin items from Stonewall Kitchen.

I have a bird cage full of shells,starfish, and vintage jewelry in my sunroom. (My bird cage is the first picture on left.)

The bird cages are beautiful! I feel a thaw coming soon! Think Spring and you’ll feel the warmth.

 

Pack Up Your Troubles!

Decorate with vintage luggage.

Painting the suitcases are very easy. This is a great tip if you want to make your suitcases a cottage style with softer colors.

Suitcases are great storage containers too.

We love using them in our displays.

Stop by the shop we have nice ones for sale.

Feeling a little Crafty???

Today I’m posting another Christmas Craft. Don’t be shy, share a craft with us. We would love to post it. Thanks.

 

Sparkling Ornaments

We turned old night-light bulbs into festive ornaments, but any size will do. Just brush on glittering glue, roll the bulb in glitter, and let dry for 15 minutes. Then hot-glue a loop of metallic embroidery floss to the bulb’s base. (Glittering glue with brush, $3.65 for 4 oz.; dickblick.com)

found this craft in Country Living online.

 

Good Morning, Getting Ready For A Busy Week

Hi everyone! We are busy as bees getting ready for our Sip/Shop

Come and Relax after hours!

Enjoy an evening of relaxing,shopping, sipping

on cool libations, and nibbling on snacks.

Fun ! Fun ! Fun!

And

our First Saturday of the month being opened.

And don’t forget our DIY workshop 11-1 on Saturday.

Clarification on DIY.

We reschedule our first workshop , the mosaic flower pot from last month due to lack of participants.

We decided to make our flower pots this Saturday.

 

We have broken some beautiful dishes with a variety of colors and patterns.

Someone asked me if we break good dishes,they seemed concerned,but we have reassured them we break dishes that have cracks and imperfections.

 

And sometimes we accidentally break some dishes and we just say, save it for our Mosaic.
