Just tinkering.....

I was tinkering out in the garage last night when I got home from the shop. It seems that when I am at the shop I can't wait to get home to work on the projects there and then when I am at home I can't wait to get to the shop and work on what waits for me there! This is a busy time of year for sure!I am having a great time getting all my stuff together for the shows that lie ahead.
The Southern Comforts show is new and this is the first time I have done an antiques show in awhile and my creative juices are flowing like crazy! Alot of my Ohio finds will be at this show~ I have saved some killer chippy pieces to use there. In addition to that show I am also going to be selling at the HOLIDAY MARKET in Greensboro NC for the first time. I am excited to do these new venues and to see what happens. I normally do the Southern Christmas show but that event lasts two weeks and I can no longer be away from the shop that long.
Anyway...while I was tinkering I glanced over to this charming little display on the workbench done by none other than MR. OTM! I am so PROUD! Here is how the master decorator describes putting the look together:
"Um...well I had to sand those wood boards and I didn't think you'd want your mini pumpkins getting all dusty so I stuck um under that big glass thing...that little metal number plaque fell on the floor about three times and it was beginning to tick me off so I just stuck it there!"
I know...I know....AMAZING right?? He has such vision! And the expert placement and the Krylon can in the background is subtle yet bold! LOL!
I love all the dust on TOP of the big glass thing...makes the pic truly gritty.
Hopefully you can get out to your space and tinker away the day!
Have a good one!
P.S. This look will be for sale at the SoCo Show...who knows Mr.OTM might even be there to offer even more design tips! See ya!
