Nearly Free Fall Decorating

Sometimes, ideas come when you're least expecting them. We were walking in the park last weekend and I found this tree branch. Immediately, I knew I wanted it for some type of project. I ignored stares of the other strolling park goers, who were probably wandering why I was carrying around a tree branch! My husband and I thought it was funny. Anyway, I digress........

I gathered together some really nice fall stamps that were free to me from Freecycle. If you know me, you know how I love Freecycle.
I grabbed my black ink pad and a handful of wooden clothes pins from a huge bag I bought at the 99 Cent Store.

Then I just went to town stamping clothes pins. It was a lot of fun!
I took out my Grandma's old photo's, of which I have tons, and decorated the branch.  I love vintage photo's, especially since they're of my actual family. And I love finding different ways to display them.
So easy.....
And I love the whimsy of it.

Love what you did with the tree branch. You know that "thinking outside of the box thing"? It has always worked well for me too!!

Take care, Sue

Great minds think alike I have one of these in my stairwell. LOL
I added some vintage ribbon on stained tags to dress it up and mini tree lights. Too.
Super fun.

This is something I've always said I'd like to do. I'd never seen it done, until now. It looks wonderful!
