How to Decorate a Fall Mantel Using a Handmade Paper Wreath

The “Raven Wreath” I made at Mill Spring Makers Market. A big thanks to Prudence Greene with Sweet Tea Bohemian for teaching me how to not only make this awesome wreath, but for also getting me out of my creating comfort zone!

It’s finally sweater weather and hot coffee time here in Northeast Tennessee, which means I can finally finish decorating my house for fall *happy dance* I’ve had a really hard time getting in the spirit of all things October because the temps have been warm + there’s currently only a hint of autumn colors.

I started decorating my front porch on the first day of fall, and I honestly tried to check off my pumpkin to-do list, but it was too warm. Nike shorts and a cute tee just doesn’t get me in the mood like flannel does *wink*

Now, that’s enough chatting about the weather! Let’s grab a good cup of coffee, sit a spell together, and talk about how to decorate your mantel for fall.

The colors of fall spice up an all white mantel.

Decorating my 1920s era mantel is a challenge. From the mirror to the overall height of the entire fireplace, I struggle. Whatever I use has to be “custom” fit, and there’s lots of putting up and taking down before the right balance and look is achieved. Normally, I would head to the local flea markets looking for rusty treasures and things that remind me of my childhood back in Mississippi, but this year I wanted to challenge myself to do something different. To do something outside my creating comfort zone. I had no idea what it would be until I saw a class for making a wreath out of paper leaves. I signed up and waited patiently for the wreath-making day to arrive.

Before we could make our wreaths, we had to cut lots of leaves. I thought it was going to be a boring task, but it was actually fun and a little relaxing. While we cut, we chatted about everything from our human children to our fur ones. We were disconnected from our phones and connected by our paper leaves.

Supplies for the stylized fall wreath

Step one is all about cutting the leaves from different colors and weights of paper.

For step two, we wrapped our wire form with burlap and glued down the ends using a hot glue gun.

Using a hot glue gun, we attached our leaves to the burlap. Prudence gave us tips on where to place our leaves and how to fold our leaves to give them more dimension.

Showing off our handmade goodness! Kati, you rocked making your wreath! Keep making those keepsakes for your home *hugs*

I was so excited and proud of the wreath I made I rushed home without stopping to get coffee! I just couldn’t wait to hang it on my mantel. It was an awesome feeling knowing I had made it. Which I know sounds crazy because I’m an artist who creates daily. However, in all of my years of crafting, I’ve never made anything like the The Raven Wreath. And y’all know what? It felt good to get out of the comfort zone, more like a rut *wink* And y’all know what else? It was so much fun getting out of the studio and connecting with other makers *big smile*

I used a Command hook to hang my wreath.

Once the wreath was up, everything else just came together. I added two paintings-one of sunflowers in a pumpkin by me and the other of pumpkins by an artisan who sells at one of the local flea markets. After a run to The Fresh Market for mini gourds, tiny pumpkins, and colorful corn, my mantel was complete.

The handmade fall garland by Allison Lacey is a playful addition to my fall decor.

Thanks for sitting a spell with me today! I hope you’ve been inspired to try a new craft and to decorate your fall mantel with handmade goodness.

A Little Fall Swag

It’s beginning to look a little like fall at Hathorn Hall (even though the green grass and temps in the 80s say otherwise!).

Hey, y’all! It’s fall or at least by the calendar it is *wink* Here in Northeast Tennessee it’s a bit on the warm side with grass that is still green (and in need of mowing), and trees that show little to no sign of putting on a fall foliage show. I must admit it’s disappointing because I’m ready to wear my sweaters and sip a PSL on my front porch.

I’ve tried to get in the spirit. A few days before the first day of fall, I bought a cute pillow with a bright, happy pumpkin on it. I went to the basement and found my wood pumpkins and put them out on the porch. I waited patiently for the temps to cool off, so I could get real pumpkins and mums from the downtown farmers market. All I got was disappointment.

Today, I was determined to get my fall happy pants on, and Mill Spring Makers Market was the very place to do so.

Up close look at the dried botanical swag I made at Mill Spring Makers Market

Christy Shivell with Shy Valley Plant Farm helped me create a beautiful fall swag for my front door. She had so many gorgeous dried botanicals to choose from. The colors, the textures, the smells…oh, my! The really awesome thing is all of the dried flowers and plants at the drop-in class were from Shy Valley Plant Farm. It took me about 45 minutes to make my swag, and it only cost $18!!! I’m wishing now I would have made two *sad face*

Shy Valley Plant Farm is a family-owned nursery growing nursery propagated wildflowers, herbs, and heirloom tomatoes. They also grow old-fashioned flowers and gourmet quality vegetable starts. All of their plants are produced by organic methods, and they are committed to preserving and promoting the biodiversity of the region’s native plant communities. For more info about Shy Valley, click here.

As soon as I got home, I put my fall swag on my door. The colors look amazing with the deep stain!

I had so much fun today not only creating, but also chatting with Christy and her daughter. Did I mention how much I’m loving the drop-in classes at Mill Spring Makers Market? In this crazy busy world, it’s so important for us to treat ourselves with some gather-connect-create time. And believe me, the world will continue to spin while we take a moment for ourselves!

For more info about upcoming classes at Mill Spring Makers Market, click here.

Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as I added a little fall swag. Now, I’m really wishing for cooler temps, a wheelbarrow full of real pumpkins, and a truck bed full of mums.

ART TO GO kits by SassyHat are currently available ONLY at Mill Spring Makers Market. More info coming soon!

I’ve been busy in the studio creating new paintings with razor blades. WHAT?! Yep. Razor Blades. Because I love to be a little edgy and dangerous in my art *wink* p.s. There are a limited number of my smaller paintings available ONLY at Mill Spring Makers Market.

A little fall swag thanks to Christy with Shy Valley Plant Farm and Mill Spring Makers Market!

 

Mill Spring Makers Market: Gather, Create, Connect

Bring all of your money because Mill Spring Makers Market is open!

Okay, okay. I know it’s been like 6 months since we last sat a spell with a good cup of coffee, but I don’t have time to explain where I’ve been and why I took a brief sabbatical in this post. We will chat about it later because it’s a really important issue affecting many, many people. *pinky promise I won’t forget* *setting a reminder in my phone right now* Now, go grab a good cup of coffee and sit a spell as we chat about a darling shop and makers space in the Historic Town of Jonesborough (which Hallmark really should just move its headquarters here).

Mill Spring Makers Market is located at 144 E. Main Street in
Jonesborough, Tennessee.

There’s a lot of stories in the building where The Corner Cup and Mill Spring Makers Market are located-which isn’t surprising considering it’s located in Tennessee’s oldest town. If you ask Melinda Copp, the owner of Mill Spring Makers Market, she will cheerfully tell you about the history of the building, and you can also take a guided Historic Walking Tour of Jonesborough to discover even more. Believe me. We could chat all day long about “if these walls could talk”-but I’d rather focus on the here and now and how much fun there is to be had.

Abby carefully making her terrarium.

Mill Spring Makers Market had me at “Drop-in Terrarium Class.” Let me give a little backstory about why I love terrariums and why I just had to go to this particular class. When I was little (perhaps 5 or 6), my parents helped me make a terrarium using moss gathered from underneath the two giant oak trees in our front yard. I had it for many years until it finally gave up on me. Thinking back, I became too busy for my terrarium garden, and it wasn’t as cool as Strawberry Shortcake. Even though I lost interest in my little moss jungle, I never forgot about it. So, when I saw Melinda was hosting a drop-in terrarium class, I had to go and take my daughter with me because I wanted her to experience making one like I did decades ago.

Christy Shivell, co-owner of Shy Valley Native Plant Nursery, and her daughter did an awesome job teaching the drop-in terrarium class.

I learned a lot in this class about how to take care of my little moss jungle.

We braved the crazy rainy weather to create our terrariums, and it was totally worth it! Thanks, Mill Spring Makers Market for hosting this class! It brought back such sweet memories and helped make new ones *big hug*

Great news! You can create your very own terrarium at Mill Spring Makers Market on Monday, September 17, 11:00-4:00. The creating starts at the beginning of each hour. I’ll probably be there at 1:00 because my little moss jungle needs a friend *wink*

The cutting of the ribbon at the grand opening celebration

As I stated earlier, Melinda’s makers market had me at terrarium. From there, I just kept making and shopping (from statement earrings to itty-bitty pottery). The inspiring ambience and smell of leather goods as you walk in the door invites you to explore. It’s a place filled with local and regional talent. Artisans who take great pride in their work, and Melinda’s space perfectly captures their fine craftsmanship.

Grand Opening weekend was full of activities and demonstrations from the makers.

During the Grand Opening celebration, I painted the themes for my upcoming drop-in classes in a mini journal handmade by Terry Alexander.

My journal I crafted at Terry Alexander’s journal making class. This class was fabulous, and I really hope Terry has another one soon because it was so much fun learning about junk journals and connecting with new people and hanging out with fellow artists!

During the journal making class at Mill Spring Makers Market in Jonesborough, I learned how to make “pockets” for my pages.

Taking a class at Mill Spring Makers Market is top priority *wink*

The best thing about the classes|workshops from Mill Spring Makers Market is learning and playing in a warm and encouraging environment with all the supplies you need right in front of you.

No waiting on UPS to deliver your package of supplies you’ll have to hide from your kids, significant other, or the furbabies. All you have to do is schedule a little me-time and show up ready to have fun!

One of the marble papers I created at the Japanese Paper Marbling class by Christy Shivell. This was the coolest class!!! I’ve always wanted to do this, but I didn’t want to invest in all of the supplies. This class gave me the opportunity to learn and play without spending all of my coffee money *wink*

Pretty Christmas Packages

Johnson City Christmas Parade “Trophies” created by artist Chasidy Hathorn (SassyHat).

Can you believe it is the last day of November? Which means there is only one month left in 2017, and only 20-something days left to do holiday shopping–give or take depending on when your family will be gathering. Whew! Santa’s elves are going to be working late from now until the sleigh departs. *deep breath* I am not ready for Christmas, much less 2018. Bless! I am still trying to figure out what has been happening this year.  Oh, my! I cannot think about this anymore *wink* Let’s grab a good cup of coffee and chat about something fun and adorable + easy to do *cue Pretty Paper by Roy Orbison*

Pretty Christmas Colors

For this year’s Johnson City Christmas Parade, I created “trophies” for the three most fabulous floats! Working off of the parade’s theme of A Storybook Christmas, the committee’s selection of traditional Christmas colors, and my love of big bows, I went into my studio and played around with everything from wood to canvas. The end result. Presents. Pretty painted packages with big, Southern bows.

I used 10 x 10, 8 x 8, and 6 x 6 block canvases for the presents.

The winner of “Best Float” trophy
For this one, I used a palette knife and acrylic paint in two shades of custom Christmas green and two shades of metallic gold. I eyed the stripes, but you can use painter’s tape to create the stripes for your packages.

Second Place
For this Christmas package, I used traditional red with pearl and metallic gold.

Third Place
I brought in the colors of the first two packages for this little darling, and topped it was a very big bow.

I used a staple gun to attach the bows to the canvases. The bow can easily be removed leaving an original painting to display on a shelf or wall.

For more info about the Johnson City Christmas parade date/time and the route, click here.

If you are looking for more things to do this weekend in Johnson City, check out the Splash: Art and Craft Showcase Market happening all weekend. Y’all will definitely find me there doing some Christmas shopping (and probably buying myself a little happy or two *wink*). For more about Splash, click here. *p.s. big congrats to Johnson City Public Art for their new blog! Welcome to the blogosphere *big smile*

Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today! Be sure to like SSL on Facebook and follow on Instagram and Twitter @ChasidyHathorn to keep up with the latest happenings, random things I retweet, and cute photos of the furbabies!

Nothing says Christmas in the South like big bows and a little sparkle *wink*

 

Free Birthday Advice to My Daughter Who May or May Not Need My Motherly Wisdom

Abby and I just doing what we do best–being silly.

It is a very emotional day for me today because it is my baby’s birthday. Okay, she isn’t exactly a baby, but she will always be my baby. Where does the time go? Really, like where? It seems like yesterday she was learning to talk and walk, she was “exploring” the yard for treasures, and she was snuggling with her special blankie and wanting me to read her a bedtime story. Some days, I was so tired from work and all of the other extra activities that I would beg (almost bribe) her to just go to sleep without a story.

In those exhausting moments, we don’t think about our babies growing up and moving away. We don’t think about the day we won’t be together on their birthdays. We are just trying to get those kiddos in the bed, the laundry done, and the next day’s clothes ready.

Looking back with a few years of wisdom under my belt, I would have chosen reading her favorite bedtime book over folding and putting away the laundry. At the time, I was trying so hard to be this super woman–to prove to the world that I could work a full-time job, keep a perfectly clean house (ready at all times for a Southern Living magazine spread), be actively involved at work, community, and church…oh, bless! This list could go on for days. One thing I am thankful for is there was no social media at this time. I would have worked myself to death trying to be super and perfect because I would have had to post everything from what I made for dinner to the knobs on the furniture. (Seriously, my FB newsfeed is full of so many statuses of moms being super moms–from extreme birthday parties that are near Hollywood productions to family vacations that rival royalty. It is shear madness.)

If I could shout one message to the world right now, it would to put down the phones and enjoy time (real time) with your children and loved ones. Put down those phones (like put them away in your purse or on a shelf) and truly hold your kids in your lap. Not have them in your lap while sending GIFs to your bestie. Stop watching YouTube videos while at the dinner table. Talk to your kids. Ask them questions about their day, about their friends, about silly things….Laugh with them . Read a story to them (don’t ask Alexa to do it). Because one day, you will wake up, and your baby will be 22.

FREE ADVICE TO MY DAUGHTER WHO IS 22 AND MAY OR MAY NOT NEED MY MOTHERLY WISDOM.

“It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.”  –Mark Twain

Standing up for what is right and what is moral and good is not easy. It will never be easy. You might be standing alone. You might be shunned or mocked (or trolled on social media) for doing what is right, but you must be the good in this world.

“Every brick they threw at me, I used them to stand on.”

There will always be someone throwing stones at you. Use them to build a strong foundation. Don’t let those brick-throwers get the best of you or get you down because if you do, those bricks will soon cover you. Don’t throw them back because when they go low–you go high (by building!!).

“You are unique. You have different talents and abilities. You don’t have to always follow in the footsteps of others. And most important, you should always remind yourself that you don’t have to do what everyone else is doing and have a responsibility to develop the talents you have been given.”
― Roy T. BennettThe Light in the Heart

“Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it.”

Never be afraid of something that is new or difficult. Accept the challenge. Show yourself that you can do hard things.

“If your dream is a big dream, and if you want your life to work on the high level that you say you do, there’s no way around doing the work it takes to get you there.” –Joyce Chapman

Keep doing the work to get you there.

“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.”
― Paulo CoelhoThe Devil and Miss Prym

“To really change the world, we have to help people change the way they see things. Global betterment is a mental process, not one that requires huge sums of money or a high level of authority. Change has to be psychological. So if you want to see real change, stay persistent in educating humanity on how similar we all are than different. Don’t only strive to be the change you want to see in the world, but also help all those around you see the world through commonalities of the heart so that they would want to change with you. This is how humanity will evolve to become better. This is how you can change the world. The language of the heart is mankind’s main common language.”
― Suzy KassemRise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” –Nora Roberts

Paw Riley and Abby

Happy birthday, my sweet, little Abigail. I love you more than words could ever express. I would give anything to read your favorite bedtime story to you tonight. *big hug*

Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as I wished my daughter a happy birthday. Remember time stands still for no one, there will always be dirty laundry, and those babies are little only once! Now, put that phone down and go snuggle on the couch with a good storybook *big smile*

Handmade Goodness at the Made Around Here Market in Historic Jonesborough

What a wonderful time I had at the Made Around Here Market in beautiful Historic Jonesborough. The Market was filled with so many awesome, handcrafted items like this Tennessee-inspired, leather carry pouch  by Rob Sherman Designs (Mountain Song Jewelers).

I must admit I shopped until I dropped at the Made Around Here Market at the Visitors Center in Jonesborough, Tennessee. It was two days filled with handcrafted goodness from local and regional artisans, and it was totally worth the hunt for a parking space. Okay. Maybe I intentionally parked away from the Visitors Center so I could stroll Main Street and get a Chai Tea Latte made with handcrafted mix from Elysium Farm. That is not the point *wink*

Outdoor Market at the Made Around Here Market in Jonesborough

If you missed this year’s Made Around Here Market, don’t fret because Jonesborough has had this handcrafted show for almost 40 years. If I were a betting person, I would absolutely put all of my coffee money on next year’s MAHM being even better.

Indoor Market No. 1 at Made Around Here Market in Tennessee’s Oldest Town. *Indoor Market No. 2 was so hopping I was unable to take photos!

Before I share the photos of some of my favorite things I found, let’s sit a spell with a Chai Tea Latte (because I bought the mix by Elysium Farm at The Corner Cup, so I could make my own at home) and chat about a few tips and tricks about shopping and surviving a two-day long holiday craft market in Jonesborough. Believe me. It’s a marathon. Not a sprint. And you will need to train for next year’s!

Big Mug by Barbara Cara of Potting for Fun. You can find Barbara out and about at local events and find her pottery at ONE.40.FOUR in Jonesborough.

FIVE TIPS & TRICKS FOR HOLIDAY MARKET SHOPPING

  • Wear comfortable shoes because you will do a lot of walking and standing while chatting with all the amazingly talented and friendly vendors.
  • Bring a large enough tote to carry all your goodies in, but not so big you can’t make a trip or two to your car. These shopping breaks will give you opportunities to explore Main Street shops and grab a cup of coffee from The Corner Cup or an ice cream cone from JJ’s Eatery & Ice Cream.
  • Bring cash. Like a bucket of cash. Not all vendors take plastic, so make sure you have a nice assortment of bills.
  • If your significant other insists on coming along and if your significant other gets tired of the shopping pace, tell them to go to Tennessee Hills Distillery and Depot Street Brewing. That should keep them busy long enough for you to get all of your shopping done.
  • Stay well hydrated (with coffee or water). You can’t shop ’til you drop in Historic Jonesborough without proper hydration.

Now, without further ado, let’s check out a few of my favorite things from the Made Around Here Market  *cue My Favorite Things by Julie Andrews*

  • All things snowmen. *If you are a fangirl of snowmen like I am, this holiday market is for you.

*For more snowmen finds at the Made Around Here Market, check out the sneak peek post here.

  • All things wood. From signs to cutting boards, Made Around Here Market had its shoppers covered.

Wood Signs by Simply Blessed Gifts

Brenden Bohannon of Electrified Wood Artisan creates one-of-a-kind wooden art pieces. To see how he creates these electrified pieces, click here.

These pretty window hangings are made from cedar and smell like Grandma’s closet. A trio of these in your kitchen window will have you thinking of your fav grandmother while you attempt to make her famous pecan pie.

Of all of the walking/hiking sticks at arts and crafts fairs, these are the finest quality I have seen. The quality is so superb I got my dad one. He is a wood artisan and a perfectionist when it comes to what he makes. Shhhh. Don’t tell him. It will ruin the surprise *wink*

  • All things vintage and vintage-inspired. Holidays wouldn’t be the holidays without displaying things that remind of days gone by and our grandmothers.

Pamela R. Haines of Rabbit Run Farm is one of my favorite artisans. Okay. I have a lot of favorite artisans, but she stands out because of her use of vintage items and her adorable primitive dolls and animals.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Peanut Butter Fudge by Rose Bowling of Unique Designs by Rose. Yes, fudge is vintage-inspired. Don’t believe me. Ask your grandmother. *wink* Plus, I had to include Rose’s famous fudge because everywhere I turned market-goers were chatting about Rose’s fudge and how delicious it was. She was most adorable and reminded me of my grandmothers–who are celebrating the holidays in heaven.

Spotted these crocheted cuties at the Tri-Cities Crafters booth. One of the crafters 91 year-old mom makes these. How inspiring is that!!

The 91 year-old mom also makes these baby blankets. This is the absolute perfect baby gift. Can you imagine the love and history in those hands that crocheted these blankets. *tearing up*

  • All things pottery. I could chat about my love of pottery all day long, but to keep this point brief-two of my favorite Northeast Tennessee potters were at the Made Around Here Market.

Kara Cline of Humilitea House creates stunning functional art pieces. For lovely and inspirational photos, check out her Instagram here.

Piggy Bank by Barbara Cara of Potting for Fun. *p.s. we all need one of these to put our shopping money in for next year’s Made Around Here Market.

  • All things leather and jewelry. Is there anything better than the smell of leather and the sparkle of handmade jewelry?

Dear Santa, I need this bag in my life. I apologize for not being a good girl this year. Hugs xx

Sterling cuff bracelet by Mountain Song Jewelers. Visit them here.

Dear Santa, I also need this. Once again, I apologize for not being on my best behavior. More hugs xx
*bracelet by Rob Sherman Designs. Their items are created and produced in their shop, from melting the metals for jewelry and findings to cutting and sewing the leather for their leather goods. All of their handmade goodness is gorgeous. Just gorgeous.

Laura Feit of DragonGemz Creative Beading was an absolute delight. She creates one-of-a-kind jewelry in her mom’s memory. To learn more about Laura and her connection to the holiday market, check out the Jonesborough’s Herald & Tribune’s article here.

It was really hard narrowing down my finds and photos from the almost 40 arts and crafts vendors because there was so much handmade goodness that caught my attention at the Made Around Here Market. I shopped ’til I dropped and ran out of cash. Note to self: bring more cash next year.

So, what did I buy at the Made Around Here Market? Well, I can’t show you everything because some of the items are gifts–unless I decide to keep everything for myself which is totally possible.

The McKinney Center was at the Made Around Here Market making cute Christmas cards with all of the kids and kids at heart.

Oh, I almost forgot to give a shout out to one of my favorite places in Jonesborough. Not only have I taken some awesome art classes from them, but I have also taught a few classes there as well. Currently, they are taking students (children and adults) for their next semester. The McKinney Center offers everything from pottery classes to hip-hop. I could go on and on about them, but just click here to discover what they have to offer.

Hello, Skye! Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to the McKinney Center.

Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as we chatted about a few tips and tricks for shopping at a holiday market and about a few of my favorite things at the Made Around Here Market.

Stay tuned for my upcoming series–which is all about coffee. Y’all know I had to venture there sooner or later *wink*

Handmade goodness is the best!
