I used vintage earrings and fastened these hankies to my shears. Love it! Had to do forty two loads of laundry before I could get to this project. I wanted to wash the curtains first. Going to keep my eye out for both to add to this valance. For a no sew project this is really cute.

Toned the feathers down a lot and now it is finished. Loved this project. This hex sign replaces the one I lost in the storm. My "hex" mother in law gave it to me probably 35 years ago. I kept it around much longer than I did her son. So, I guess in that way it did bring me luck. Ha!

Before and after tree. We called "Instant Shade" and boy they weren't kidding! We are really happy with this tree and his baby brother to the left. The big daddy is an Autumn Blaze Maple and the smaller is an October Glory Maple. My husband is 6'4" so this tree is REALLY tall!

Found this tin for a buck at a sale last weekend. Perfect for this Wilkum sign I've been wanting to do. I've found out all kinds of interesting things about this hex sign. The first being the name and that they are witchy. I also have several others I've made unknowingly. The bead hurricanes are "what goes around comes around" which I totally believe. And I made another that is a hex symbol.
