Worm Pills for Children

In between working and riding and fighting to create the Powwow Video… I have been able to sneak out to my studio!  While I’m still in search of my map of Girl Scout National Center West (anyone have a spare to donate?  😉 ), so my map tabletop is at a standstill, I decided to work on my big cabinet.

Everything in my studio is wood, the building, the chicken nest boxes, the cabinets, the bed… and so I decided to mix it up a bit.

Here’s my inspiration.


A reprint of the 1902 Sears Catalog.  Wonderful things come through the Ten Sleep Library… and I nabbed this years ago.

I love looking at everything Sears used to carry… it was definitely the Amazon.com of its day!  I pulled my favorite ads… photography, cowboy hats, wood stoves, tools, swimsuits, health remedies, ice boxes… and did this.


Mod podged onto the front doors, it’s an interesting read and something different besides WOOD.

The paper is yellowed and looks original… and I enjoy seeing the sleighs and the lace and the mandolins… all the rage when this building perhaps was first built.


… though I didn’t take a pic of it, just let me say I’m very happy we don’t need to buy “Worm Pills for Children – a mother’s best friend”.

  1. Love the idea! Modge Podge is an amazing decorating tool. When I was pregnant with baby 4 (Cowboy C) the other Cowkids and I used it to make a wonderful collage of old Peter Rabbit books for his room. It’s still my favorite part of the nursery! I’m thinking of doing it on a dresser for Cowgirl G’s room…glad to see how nicely it worked for you.

  2. “Amazon.com of its day” – great comments!!! Loved the creative use of the Sears Catalog. The Mod-podge really will protect it, too.

  3. We just came back from our summer vacation in the Smokey mountains…one stop was Cataloochee Valley. Some of the original homes from the 1900’s still had remnants of old newspaper “wallpaper”. It was fun reading some of those old stories and ad’s and laughing at the absurdity of those items in today’s society…but you sure couldn’t beat those prices!
