A Snow Day! in Orange County

My day started out with breakfast @ Mimi's, with my gal pals Pearl and Linda.
This weekend I came across some Snowmen that were just adorable. I purchased a tutorial from Dawn @ The Feathered Nest (really good instructions too!I
had made some of these last year but, Dawn had a different idea (buy the tutorial and see for yourself!) So, Pearl and I started creating..... here they are....
These are the first two we made from the tutorial
pretty cute, huh??? After that we ran with our own ideas.....
I had made them on bottles before so, that's what we did.
Isn't this little chubby guy cute?
We had fun choosing and adding all the embellishments. We used brads for the eyes,tulling,silver tinsel, added words and more embellishments.
This one is saying.. don't go Pearl! Before we new it the play date had to end - boo-hoo.
We had a great day!
During the week I had been working on these old windows, I turned them into distressed mirrors, then added the little NEST banner.
This one is a little smaller. I'm working on a Christmas window too. All these items will be for sale at the Vintage Market Place, mark your calendar for this Friday and Saturday Dec. 2 & 3rd.
Come see me there.
Well, I'll be working on more Snowmen this week, I hope it cools down.
Have a great week, I'm seeing lots of lites in my neighborhood already. Mine are going up next week.
So, thanks for coming by today.
Peace,Love,Junk &
Merry Wishes,
