window wip


I wish I had a recipe or tutorial to send you on your weekend with, but I'm madly at work on a window display for Mama Goose. I have just enough time to quickly share some "work in progress" sneak peaks, and then I'm off to pick up my children and head out to a pumpkin farm...if the rain doesn't come.
Mama Goose is a resale shop for children, and I'm creating an Autumn scene out of recycled materials. I'm predominantly using newspaper and brown paper bags. This "not quite finished" owl will be sitting on a branch looking down at some traditional woodland icons made out of un-traditional materials...or at least I hope! It's all in the works, so wish me luck this weekend... and I'll share photos once it's installed on Tuesday or Wednesday.



Hope you can make time for some fun and creativity this weekend! Pin It

  1. Love the owl so much, especially the stitching and its nose, with the little ad for Quilter's Corner, Mama Goose's future neighbor!!

  5. Can't wait to see the finished display. It really evokes that whole rustling Autumnal leaves and chilly breezes thing. The use of recycled materials is great. Is that a bottle cap?

  11. Maya- These leaves are awesome!! Did you use regular crayons to make these? I would like to use them in a Fall concert that my students are working on but ours aren't coming out as bright as yours are!!

  12. Stacee- we used beeswax brick crayons. I have a link to the resource in the leaf post. Hope that helps:)
