do you guys remember how i was going to build a teepee for the shop? and how it didn’t go well because there were structural integrity issues and i didn’t think it would be cool to tell kids (or grown-ups) that they couldn’t actually go in the teepee?
if at first you don’t succeed…
i decided to turn the painter’s canvas that was originally destined to become the teepee “walls” into bunting flags, because as you know, there’s no such thing as too much bunting.
bunting + sails + stencils = advent calendar. with mice and a ship of course.
i found the ship on craigslist…which has led to a new obsession with model ships. stay tuned for megan’s mini-marine shop, opening 2013.
the “merry covemouse” banner was also part of the ill-fated teepee canvas, painted with left-over chalkboard paint because when i have a wet paint roller, nothing is safe.
i found the vintage rope in vancouver at union wood company, which reminds me, i still owe them money for it. i’m pretty sure they think i’m a lunatic. (you try explaining to someone that you’re having a vintage rope emergency.) i felt like the SNL target lady with the rope in hand.
