A Theme for Thursday {stencil it!}

Nothing was safe from getting stenciled this week.
I picked up a few new sets of stencils and
couldn’t resist putting words on anything that couldn’t escape me.
I started off stenciling pages for the “GIVE THANKS” banner I
showed you HERE (and you can print the pages).
Available in the shop to purchase HERE.
Next, I thought I’d “LIVE LIFE” on the industrial side
by painting a few old metal drawers.
Available in the shop HERE.

This one is sure to bring some “JOY”
for the Christmas season.
It was obvious that a very tattered old Bible, missing the entire book
of Genesis and some other pages as well, was
a real source of “HOPE” for whoever owned and read it so much.

Old books without their covers…perfect to
“WELCOME HOME” loved ones.

And I was having fun, so I made another one…
Available in the shop HERE.

 and another one.
Available in the shop HERE.

And I thought this rusty, old toolbox would
look right at “HOME” in an autumn display.
Available in the shop HERE.

My son’s dog was sleeping next to me while I was
working on these projects, and I was tempted to
stencil “lazy beast” on his side, but instead
I let him “DREAM” in peace, and
stenciled on a wooden clothes hanger instead.

And you can’t make just one of something,
so my “FAMILY” inspired another one.
Available in the shop HERE.

Well, that’s my theme for this Thursday!

  7. For the past week I have been wanting to thank you for your generosity sharing the bible template. I made my first banner with your template and I love it. I used cardstock and twine, stenciling the letters using a black oil paint Sharpie. It was quick and easy and fun. I have it on display in my dining room ready for Thanksgiving dinner with my entire clan. Again thank you so much! Love all the vintage books and clocks, et al on your site. Kimberly
