Our fall tag sale is a wrap!

A huge thank you who everyone who came out for our fall tag.
I've said it before, we have the very best customers!
We so appreciate your support and enthusiasm!!!
 
 
I just love the way the house evolves over the course of the sale as pieces come and go!
 
 
If you see something you like, you better grab the tag!
 
 

You know we can't host a tag sale without cookies!






Heavy lifting is exhausting!







It's amazing how much you can stuff into one small car!

 
I think the boys enjoyed this challenge!
 

Success!

 
These cute little girls are getting a tea party table! Their clever mom paired a round end table from one room of the house with some painted pint sized chairs from another room. Why didn't we think of that? And luckily I had extra chairs in the garage and they are going pink today!

 
Karla rocked this little man right off to sleep while his Grandma shopped!
 

So there you have it, our fall tag sale is a wrap!
A huge thank you from all of us here at Elizabeth & Co.!
 
 
And guess what, our Holiday Open House is just six weeks away!!!

Fall Wreath Making Frenzy

If you've been here before, you know that before every tag sale I go into a wreath making frenzy. I actually really enjoy the process and find it very relaxing. But I call it a frenzy because I usually pick a day, put on some great music, spread my supplies all over the kitchen and just make wreaths all day long. Seriously, all day long! 
 
 
And funny thing, it actually started a bit by accident. For our first few sales, I would make a wreath for the front door and the back door, just to make it festive and welcoming. After constantly explaining that the wreaths were not for sale, I realized I really needed to make more wreaths. So here you have it, the results of the fall wreath frenzy!


 
And can you tell, I really like making bows too!
 
 
















And because Halloween is right around the corner, I had to make a scary one too!
 
 
This one was inspired by my sweet blog friend Leslie at Gwen Moss. She loves Halloween and throws a wicked party every year!
 
 
Okay, I'm off. It's sale day. If you're local, sure hope you come by and say hello! All the details are on the sidebar and we'll do our best to post updates on our Facebook page throughout the weekend! For our long distance friends, thank your encouragement and inspiration. Have a great rest of the week!
