Her head is smaller than my others, too.
I learned how to make pom poms for paws and feet!  So cute!
Let me know if you want one!

There's 61 handmade yo yos in each bunny.

Candy Land!

Bobby found a vintage Candy Land game at the the thrifts!
Well- almost.
It's a reproduction but I don't care!
It's been well played so it seems vintage.
This is the board I remember from my childhood and I've wanted one for years.
The ice cream floats was always my favorite section.

I plan on hanging the board on my craft room wall and scanning and copying the game cards for crafting.

Hope you're all doing well!
Idaho didn't really have a winter.
It's like the whole west coast has a dome over it!
I'm sorry for those of you who are really feeling it.
Hang in there.  Spring always comes.

Valentine Yo Yo Trees!

Hello blog friendies!
I've been making Valentine yo yo trees on vintage blocks.
I think they are so cute.
If there's any that don't sell, I get to keep them!  


I haven't been doing any new decorating or much treasure hunting but I have been doing lots of writing, crafting and taking some nature walks.  I'm glad I have so many things that interest me!

Hope you're all well and happy!

It's Still Christmas At The Cottage!

If any of you are missing Christmas- it's over here!  It's Christmas at the cottage until February!  Why not?

If you're one of those people who can't wait to get it all put away and have the house back to normal, then good for you but if you feel sad taking it down and feel sad afterward then leave it up!   Time goes by so fast now.  I left all the Christmas decor up until the Super Bowl last year and it cheered January right up!  By the time I took it down, I was ready to move on and NO sadness!

In other news, I'm still making yo yo elves and starting to work on Valentine craft to sell.

Merry Christmas!

My Tree Is Up!

I can't remember when it took me so long to finish my tree!
Having an empty nest and no grands near by gives me less motive!

I took pics from several angles but the area around my cozy chair and high chair is still messy so you'll have to wait to see the whole room!

I've since decorated the window behind the tree a bit more.

Hope you're all fairing well over the holidays!
 I have a cold right now so I'm resting a lot- making yo yos and watching my favorite shows on Netflix!

Merry Christmas!

Hutch Close Ups!

Are you ready for some hutch close ups?



I love how you can see all the paint layers on my hutch in this pic!



Can you tell that my tree topper is broke?



I'm still hoping to find another fish bowl for the kitties!







Thanks for coming by and leaving a quick comment!
Hope you're all able to ENJOY Christmas time and not feel stressed!

I Finished!

I finished the hutch!  For now.  :)
I actually liked it better last year but I was determined to do it differently this.  
The addition of my pink appliances is fun though- right?  
Also- Happy in a snowglobe makes me laugh.
It doesn't take much to amuse me.

Merry Christmas all!

Christmas Fun At The Cottage

There's all sorts of fun around the cottage lately!  I've been decorating the hutch counter,
making mostly red yo yo elves for customers,

working on the hutch one cubby at a time,  (Maybe I'll be done by Christmas!)

thrifting for vintage Christmas and letting mostly red elves show people,  

more thrifting for Christmas,  (The cashier boy said he didn't think anyone would buy it and told Bobby that his name must be Dave!  Ha!)

looking at the snow out my craft room window and making yo yos for trees and elves,

playing with last years reindeer find,

Making an elf in mostly green,


making progress on the hutch top
and TODAY is my husband Bobby's birthday!
We have 3 birthdays during the holidays!
Whew!
I'm staying busy but having fun!
