Sorry about the long time in between posts. I have been under the weather lately. I slept almost all day Thanksgiving. We didn't have company, so my husband cooked a roast and I slept. I've also been super busy at the shop. I've had to go 3 times in a week to fill and work on displaying. I've been selling alot...so it keeps me busy. I also had a chance to get out and go to my favorite antique store in Canton, SD. I just bought some dollar items. I will show you what I did with them in this post. (Christmas Ornaments)
McKale has also decided to be up for the past 2 weeks almost all night, every night. I can't tell you how tired I am. He is finally getting a third tooth, so I think that is the problem. All that fuss for one tooth. Yikes!
I wanted to show a few pics of my house. I have a growing collection of pink and white Christmas trees. I have 3 ceramic pink trees, 3 pink trees I've made, one white feather tree and one ceramic white tree. I also found the cutest framed tree made by a child. Had to get it....so sweet and blends in nice with my collection! The next picture is my hutch in my kitchen/dining area. I filled jars with old ornies that I've had forever and never done anything with. The plate rack in the backgound is something my husand made out of a small piece of door and garden fencing. I love it! He is so handy and I LOVE HIM FOR IT! The next three pics are of ornaments I've been making. The mitten is batting and ticking sewn into mittens then glittered. I made 20 of them (remember now...I sew by hand!) The other is an altered stocking....I made 12 of them last year for my tree. The last is the item I bought at The Painted Lady in Canton. I bought 10 small cake tins in the shape of stars for $2.00. I put vintage sheet music in the middle...glittered them and then put tinsel around the outside of the music. I love how they turned out.
So...you can see why I haven't blogged...being sick and working on projects and the shop....and kids....so busy! God Bless your week...do something nice for someone this week. Bless their socks off!
I still have some kittens listed in my etsy shop and an awesome necklace! If you want unique gifts this just might be it!
