Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Wrapping Up Halloween

I just wanted to show you one little thing that I made last week. I can't remember where I saw this, it's something I copied, (you know I haven't had an original idea since 1986). It's one of those candle jars that they use in the Catholic church, I got mine at Walmart. I just decoupaged some halloween scrapbook paper to the candle, then decoupaged the vintage halloween image over the paper. So easy. I'm thinking they might be a great little Christmas gift if you'd use Christmas paper.

This is a great idea. I just saw something similar in a magazine last night. They used some pretty white papers and embellished a group of these for Christmas.
