Things I Didn’t Buy 62

I thought the gingerbread man on the cover of this book was adorable.

I liked this Handyman’s Book cover. So wholesome.

This Little Readers’ book cover was pretty cute.

I liked this tying book’s simple cover.

And I liked the geometric nature of this truck book.

Yarn Tassel Wrapping Decoration

Instead of using a bow, I used yarn to create tassels to wrap around a gift. I just looked up how to make a tassel online and followed the directions.

The main change I made was the yarn that is tied at the top of the tassel is quite long in order to wrap around the gift.

I also made two of these tassels. I wrapped these yarn tassels around the gift and then tied the ends together (and then tied the excess yarn in the back and cut any excess yarn).

I thought it was pretty cute and warm looking. And it’s a good way to use up leftover yarn.

Things I Didn’t Buy 61

I liked this Enpee apple label.

But I found this Don’t Worry apples label to be rather creepy.

And here are more produce labels.

Vintage Pincushion

My grandma gave me this vintage pincushion that she had for 70 years. The cushion itself is pretty cute and has a nice design on the front. I like the different pins in the cushion—they’re so interesting. My favorite is the elephant one.

Things I Didn’t Buy 60

Foot High Melons label. [Pause.] To me, it’s odd seeing a sexy lady selling melons. I can’t imagine going into a supermarket today and seeing a label like it…there would probably be some complaints.

Here are some more produce labels.
