Crafting Bunches, Decorating Bits and Treasure hunting Fun!

Merry Christmas, girls!  I've been crafting for Denise,
collecting and decorating for me.
Crafting for Nan,
antiquing and decorating for me.  (The ornaments are a new find)

My hutch was all done by this time last year but I wasn't selling my crafts full time last year so it's slower going!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.  I sure did.

Comment and I'll love you.  ;)

Yo Yo Trees And Elves!

I've been making and selling yo yo tress and elves and it's so much fun!

I've been humming Jingle Bells

and We Are Santa's Elves as I work.
Big thanks to Creative Breathing Elizabeth who gave me my first yo yo maker and gave me to the nudge to sell my crafts!

Hope you're enjoying the Holidays!

The Ghost of Pictures Past

Hello blog friendies!  Do you remember my Christmas hutch from last year?

The challenge will be to make it just as cute this year- yet different.

I have more vintage Christmas items and dishes to add this year but not much.

Looking at these old pics gives me inspiration for this year!

I look forward to seeing all of your holiday decor!
Have a great day!

Thrifting for Christmas

The Christmas items have hit the Goodwill!
It took a lot of searching thru row after row but I found these 2 vintage angel tree toppers.  I collect these so now I have 4.  My dream is to find *The One* that I had in childhood- a rare black haired one with her hair in a bun.
I also found this fat and very vintage Holly garland- about 5 Ft long!
I love it!

I've been undressing the hutch, dusting it and washing the previous occupants- Pyrex and Melamine, etc.  Then of course I have to organize my kitchen cupboards to make room for it all!  Once that is done, I'll start Bobby will start taking down the Christmas boxes to decorate the hutch!
Hutch 1rst- then the tree.  That's the order and it takes a few weeks!
But this year, my feet don't hurt!  Yay!

Hope you're all having fun!

Bring On The Christmas!

I can't hold back any longer!  
For those of you who believe in one holiday at a time, don't comment because I don't need that kind of negativity in my life!  Ha-ha!

These Santa mugs and the spaghetti Santa were in the dollar
ROOM at the Clarkston Antique mall called the Hangar.  (It's in an old airplane hangar)
That's my kind of dollar store!

I've been busy, busy making Christmas yo yos for elves and hope to have one finished to show you soon.
The last 6 months have been a very difficult time in my life and I look forward to the Christmas cheer.

Christmas time is my favorite time to blog and I look forward to seeing your Christmas posts!

A Collection Starts

Hello fellow blogging friends!
I found these sweet Lustoware shakers when I went antiquing with my son for my birthday.
They have cracks on their backs so they were only $4.00 for the pair!
 They needed a bit of scrubbing up too but I never mind that.

I think treasure hunting is so fun- don't you?
I never buy much since I live in a small house but I always manage to find a little something to make me smile!

Hope you're all enjoying your fall!
