I wanted to tell you about this lovely shop April, Dottie, and I found. Red Door Lane, where Past Meets Present is located at Leaders Flea Market.
For your navigation their address is 1291 East Woodville Drive, Leander Tx. I was so taken with this shop, which has a mixture of antiques, paints, and home decor. Their designers make pretty, elegant, wacky, and tasteful artistic items. I purchased two material stuffed pumpkins, and a sweet tea towel.
We visited two more shops that sold antiques at antique shop prices. What sets Red Door Lane apart from the other shops is their selection of furniture and reasonable prices.
See for yourself what this cute out of the way shop has to offer. Yes it is air conditioned, and baby stroller friendly. I can’t wait to visit to Christmas shop at Red Door Lane!!
All you need is an imagination, some school supplies, and a hot glue gun.
I made this for a lovely teacher and she liked it very much.
Hope it inspires you to make and give something to a Teacher that has touched your life.
It seems that Teachers don’t get appreciated enough these days for their hard work.
One of the projects on my bucket list is to make some fairy houses for my deck.
Here are a few ideas that are some wonderful examples of my vision.

D.I.Y. Canning Jar Soap Dispenser
I bought pint canning Kerr jars and saved the pumps from empty soap dispensers.
I had some idea how to go about this but luckily April, my daughter was here to help me.
April is such a big help when I have these ideas to help me follow through with them.
To make the hole take a marker and circle the top of the soap dispenser that will sit on top of the jar.
Screw the lid onto the jar, take a screw driver and with a hammer tap a hole in the top of the jar lid.
You may need to make a couple of holes in the lid until the pump will fit into that hole.
Underneath the lid you will have sharp metal pieces so you need to keep that in mind.
You will need to fold the sharp metal edges back into the bottom of the jar lid.
