Thrifty Finds

I'm sure you've noticed that I haven't had too much time to blog of late.  Camp ended for my boys last week, so don't have a lot of free time to craft or blog.  My posts until back to school will likely be few and far between.
But I did want to share a few thrifty finds from last week.  Yes, I'm already thinking ahead to Halloween.  I want to make more creepy book stacks and these fit the bill - they are already black!  No painting for moi.  I never pass up vintage Bobbsey Twins' books. The little checkerboard is for the 9 year old's room.
And speaking of Halloween...yes, I have started tinkering with ideas.  This is how I've been envisioning the book stacks: spooky black frame on top.  I plan on hand-stamping the pages so they read things like boo and Happy Halloween.
Get on over to Pinterest if you haven't lately.  Folks are starting to pin lots of great Halloween ideas - including tons of free printables. My witch one is from Etsy.  I printed it out onto vintage sheet music for my frame.  I sneak onto Pinterest when the boys are playing nicely or sleeping.

Lastly, forgive me if I haven't been over to your blogs in a bit. Keeping two boys busy and handling my day job leaves me exhausted.

Cute printable! I have been thinking about what I want to do for Halloween for my Etsy. I just need to get to the store for some supplies. And I'm on into Christmas for some new ideas I'm trying out.
