Last week The BG was in Philly for a conference, the kids were in school all day, and my parents are in Texas helping my Uncle Ron while he goes through cancer surgery.
So I spent a couple days visiting antique stores just to get out of the VERY empty house.
When I spotted this vintage football I fell in love. It just whispered fall to me. I kept walking around, but couldn’t get it out of my mind, so it came home with me.
I promised The BG that I would watch his Alma Mater, U of M , play football this year if he also kept up with my Alma Mater CMU. So Saturday’s have been football days for us around here.
I decided to build a little vignette around the vintage football for the hubs.
Our realtor and family friend gave me this old singer sewing machine cabinet this past spring . It was just sitting on the front porch doing nothing. So I cleaned it up and brought it in.
An old wooden crate got filled with tailgating supplies: vintage plaid picnic bag, vintage thermos, wool throw, some vintage football photos, and a little chalkboard to keep score. I think I need to find some vintage U of M and Central pennants to stick in there too!
I made the chalkboard picture frame out of a frame I got from hobby lobby, and some vinyl chalkboard contact paper that I just stuck right on the glass.
I’m off to make a pot of chili for the game!
Linking up Here.
