1  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southeast / Re: Philadelphia Area Thrift Stores on: June 13, 2005 09:25:09 PM
I have been in years but as I recall the Bryn Mawr Hospital Thrift Store is really good.  My friend was there about 2 years ago and she said it is still very good.  Only thing is I think (don't know for sure) they close for the summer.  Also, I remember my mom and I taking SEPTA there.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Earthy Fall Wedding Ideas? on: May 25, 2005 03:40:06 PM
Ok, here are some ideas but I'll keep thinking and might edit the post later.  Hope this is some help.  (Yeah, I spend way too much time thinking about weddings.)

Favor/placecards all in one
http://www.blissweddingsmarket.com/brideideas/minipails.htm
On the pails attach the placecard.

Instead of the sticker with your names you can print the seating on the sticker.

Apples and/or pears (real or candles) I have always like the idea of using apples as a favor.
Attach leaf shaped placecards next to the stems like this

These are from here:
Pear candles
http://waxwizard.net/favors.html

Apple candles
http://waxwizard.net/favors-a.html and http://waxwizard.net/float5.html


For centerpieces:
Pumpkins either used to hold flowers or as is but with some leaves and flowers arounf the bottom.

Galvinized tims filled with apples. 

Glass plate with 3 varying size pillars (this should be available at the dollar store or craft store).  One thing I saw with these was they took ribbon and wrapped it around the girth of the candle (the example was a grosgrain burgundy) and attached it with 2 upholestry tacks at the overlap or even use glue and glue on vintage style or pearl buttons.  (Again, the ribbon can be found on sale and I imagine the tacks wouldn't be that costly.)  Maybe even put 3 flowers on the plate, laying down, the stem tucked between each candle join.

Chrysanthemums are great fall flowers and come in a ton of colors.

Fall candles (the first set are a variety and burn 7 hours 2 in a bowl would make a nice centerpiece.)

http://waxwizard.net/fall6.html (pimpkin and squash candles)


ETA:
Another favor note:
I like those cookie cutter favors where the are attached to a cookie recipe but you can totally do them cheaper yourself. 
Cookie cutters under $1. (They even have directions and the recipe http://sugarcraft.com/catalog/cooky/heartcard.htm)

ETAA:  How about an all baby's breath bouquet?  Very earthy and inexpensive.  http://www.theknot.com/gallery_detail.htm?gallery=20&itemnumber=5

Oh, your wedding is so pretty.  I am definitely bookmarking this post.

For the music one:

Get a simple line vase or hurricane stick some musical note stickers one it (the notes must be the fully cut out kind) and then do the dip & etch.  Once you was the stickers off they will be clear but the rest will be frosted.

I am still trying to think of ideas for the other one...or other ideas for this one.

American Pie on South Street And Main Street.  Hopefully I'll think of a few more. 

Side question:  I love your avatar, is your name Rita?  I ask because mine is and there aren't a ton of women under 60 named Rita.
7  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southeast / Re: Sewing classes in Philly or Delaware county? on: February 26, 2005 11:52:31 PM
I don't know how often classes start but the Main Line Night School charges $83 for 8 weeks and that is right in DE county (isn't it?).  http://www.mainlineschoolnight.org/

My sister took the class at TUCC (Temple University Center City) and then later took them from the same woman at her location, I don't know if she still teaches on her own but you can get her name from the TUCC site and maybe google her or look in the phone book (I think she was in the Queen Village area).  I should add the TUCC classes are $$ but I think the woman was less expensive but I don't know how much.

Mt. Airy Learning Tree has sewing classes from time to time but that probably isn't the most convenient.  You could also check Cheltenham Township's Adult Classes but again, I don't think the location is the closest for you.
8  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Stitch Marker Swap!! (sign up 2/7/05-2/21/05) on: February 16, 2005 03:44:15 AM
I am interested.  I just made a dozen or so last night.

If you want those type of markers that you can slip on a stitch you can all use earring wires.  I have also used jump rings, memory wire and the ring part of toggle clasps (I am trying to figure a way to use the bar part for row markers).

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Last minute baking and breaking-Candy Cane Bark on: December 24, 2004 02:12:12 AM
Oh, I made this the other day for stockings.  Did the double layer thing too.  First I broke the candy canes into pieces and then ground it using the coffee grinder (not too long, I didn't want a powder).
