I love old sheet music. I think I'll use some of the pages to create... hmmm... well, something. Some kind of Christmas decor would be cool. Scrolls tied with silver ribbons? Any good ideas?
I HAVE to tell you about mom's great find this weekend! She stopped at a garage sale outside of Milwaukee and got rolls and rolls of this gorgeous, rose-covered, wool carpet for $20!! It had been in a house for 3 generations when a spark from the fireplace caught the edge of the carpet on fire. Thankfully, it was caught quickly and there wasn't any damage except to the very edge of the carpet. The insurance company paid for new carpet for the entire first floor. So.... mom got some awesome new/old carpet! AND I get the leftovers (hopefully there will be leftovers)!!
Another umbrella - I know, what do I need with yet another umbrella? But how can a girl resist a lucite handle, tassles and yellow roses???
