At Second Street

It’s crunch time people…….for those of you hosting Thanksgiving……you know what I’m talkin about.  Time to try out those last minute decor ideas, maybe try out your table setting, shampoo the carpets….or am I the only crazy one?  I don’t think so. 

I found a fairly new blog.  I love new blogs.  They’re so excited to show us everything.  A Second Street.


First of all I love how she created her own cornucopia……DSC03273out of burlap no less.  She MADE this with a bit of chicken wire, burlap and autumn goods.  That’s something we could whip up this weekend.  Guaranteed to impress your guests.IMG_3727IMG_3745

Why am I showing you Halloween stuff? IMG_3633 Well because creativity has no boundaries.  Actually I was so impressed with the disposable cake stand, I just couldn’t keep the excitement to myself.

   I’m thinking this would be perfect for Christmas goodies too.  Of course you’d use Christmas paper…… could even use wrapping paper if you’re not a scrapbooker that has an over abundance of paper……..don’t look at me like that……..I’ll use it soon enough. 

Below are the easy materials she used.  Simple!  Love that.IMG_3565 She’s a crafty mom with 4 kids, so she’s a pro at making cakes…..seriously…….she’s a pro. 

She shares her marshmallow fondant recipe with us on her blog.  IMG_3237  She loves to repurpose clothing too. She made a cute hat from an old sweater.  She’s just that crafty.  Go visit her and leave her a nice comment……because that’s what TCB readers too.  You’re the best by the way!

Fabulous Friday giveaway still going until Sunday…..scroll down and enter.

Oh, what great ideas...and those shrooms on that cake are too cute! Yes, crunch time indeed ;-) No holiday cards here...I'm finishing up making mine this weekend (well, that's the plan anyway, tee hee).

I LOVE the cornucopia! I think I'll visit her now.
Before you exhaust yourself cleaning, my mother-in-law always tells me that people come to see you, not your house. So maybe you could just skip the clean carpets and just make a super cute craft with your feet propped up! :)
God's blessings, Sarah :D

Thanks so much for the highlight. I've gotten so much love as a new blogger.

How fun! That cake look amazing-I'll have to go check her blog out! And, I totally agree with Sarah about the carpets-if your Thanksgiving is anything like a holiday at our house it's best to wait until ,after to shampoo the carpets!
