PIMPERL PLACE-THE VENUE
We are happy to invite you to Pimperl Place. We hope you will consider us as the venue for your next event in North Baldwin County. We currently offer a large field that is perfect for wedding tents, a cabin, a stage, all inside the gated property. We will soon be completing a large outdoor pavilion that will include a catering kitchen. Contact us for more information at 251-937-3572.
We're adding new structures, big and small, to the grounds every month.
THE TRAVELING SHOW
November 17 & 18-A Very Vintage Christmas in Laurel, MS
SEASONAL DECORATING TIP
This one is so easy, you'll be thinking, "Now, why didn't I think of that?"
I frequently gather old books at our library when they have their sales for non-circulating and damaged books, usually paying a quarter for each one. I love to use pages from books in different ways in my mixed-media art, and for whatever else strikes my fancy, so I always have a few in my stash.
While contemplating fun ways to display my little pumpkins around the house, I decided to fill a dish (ironstone, of course!) with some shredded paper to form a little "nest" for the pumpkin. It's a fun way to recycle, and it's waaay more interesting than regular old colored paper shred from a bag! So, I grabbed a couple of my old books with slightly different colors of discolored, old, white paper pages, and I headed to the shredder. I ran the pages through so that the cuts would run parallel with the print. I thought it might be fun if you could still read the little words on the strips...
It worked exactly like I had hoped!
There's a hurricane named Nate heading straight for us, and instead of getting the place prepared, I'm playing with paper and pumpkins...
Y'all take care if you're in the path of Nate, and I hope to see you here "Down in the Delta" in two weeks for our Fall Market 2017!
