A pretty freebie for Commercial Use.....



And coordinating with my country theme today...this lovely set of 3 vintage commercial use lace borders can be found HERE (this freebie will expire in a week or so and after that will be sold in my store for 1 dollar )

It's pear picking time again on the farm, (i love this time of year! these pears are awesome, not even close to the Asian pears you purchase in the store, i wish i could share them with you all!)


Here's one of my latest recycled craft projects... this cardboard box kitchen set made for my 2 year old little girl. I love crafting! lol and the greatest part is when you make it yourself you have free reign on its design and colors etc. I had alot of accessories like the knobs and handles and sink faucet etc. hanging around but they could have just as easily been created with cardboard cutouts or painted recycled stuff you have lying around the house. It was really fun to make and if your kids are older they may want to help out with the crafting process too. As you can see, she was pretty thrilled with it :-) to make this i glued together various different boxes, painted them white inside and out, 'wallpapered' the inside of the fridge and 'stove' with aluminum foil (though you don't have to do that) and embellished with some recycled things we had in the old abandoned house left full of junk from the previous owners of our farm, I took apart the non-working toaster oven i found in there for the knobs, and stove handle, and the stove rack, used 2 old cabinet handles for the fridge door handles, (the doors for the fridge and stove close with velcro tabs) and there was an old bathroom sink faucet that i took apart cleaned up and attached to the top with a small dogfood dish for the 'sink'. the fridge magnets and spice boxes were made using scraps of wallpaper border samples i had, empty spice containers and black paint. And the 'window' is made using a pretty picture from Country magazine, painted cardboard and embellished with some cute fabric curtains for the window and under the sink.....

now to make some play food..... LOL

The little kitchen set is absolutely adorable. You sure put a lot of time and effort into it and I'm sure she will have endless hours of fun playing with it. I can't wait to see what "play food" you come up with.

Thank You for the beautiful free gift... you are so generous.

Have a Great Day :)

Thank you so much, Sherah, for today's TWO goodies! I especially LOVE LOVE LOVE that lace :-)!
And I loved seeing the kitchen set you made for your daughter and your description of how you made it. Almost makes me wish my granddaughters were still young enough to play with that stuff ;-).

OMG!! I want one!! I want one!! Now I'm on the hunt for some cardboard boxes... I have the rest of the "junk" lying around our basement, hubby never throws away hardware for ANYTHING!!! LOL! And I have tons of half-filled paint cans, fabric & glue!! OMG! This is going to be fun! Thanks so much for the idea, Sherah! It's FABULOUS!!!! And I bet my kids will enjoy it a lot better than the cheap-o plastic one we got them last year that fell apart after two months! {rolls eyes} Velcro... ingenious, I say!!!

Oh, yeah... thanks for the awesome lace freebie, too! :-)
