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,

Getting ready for Thanksgiving & Finishing some new Creations

I'm sure everyone is getting ready for turkey day! Me too! but, the last few days I've been putting together some little treasures for the Vintage Market Place in Rainbow,CA 12/2 &12/3, it is held in a beautiful location. A must visit! I'll be a vendor there. O.K. what do all these things have in common? A glittered Candy Cane. I've made some of these canes for the sale.
I added some hand painted stripped material,greens.glitter and a big glittered bow! Voila!
I made these glittered snowflakes (I had glitter everywhere) for my sale. but, to my surprise I sold out! So, I've put together some more to bring over to the Market Place.
A big box full.
Little Reindeer & Holly, doesn't that say Holiday?
One more.....Did I mention my fingers hurt from folding all those pinwheels? ouch!
Well, it's time to clear away all the glitter,holly & glue,for a few days- to enjoy cooking Thanksgiving for my family and be grateful for all our blessings and good health! So, just let me say" A HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU ALL!!!! enjoy all your goodies.
I'll post a few more things I'm working on next week.

Whew!! My Holiday Sale is Over! On with Christmas!

Oh my gosh! what a week leading up to my sale. All the rain the days before. But, my prayers were answered,(and thank you to all of you that said a prayer for me). The rain woke me up @2:30am and it kept raining, I thought it wasn't going to stop! I had planned a little for the rain but, I was moving
and covering everything.It was a frenzzzy! But, later to my surprise the rain stopped right as the line started to form. Whew! yes, there was a line to get in! Thank you to all of you that came to support us! Needless to say, I hardly had a chance to take photos. So, I'll share just share these few.
Some signs I painted.
My little helper "Elf Sophie"!
My dear friends and Holly Helpers, Pearl and Linda!
Thanks guys for all your help, kisses XOXO.

Me and my girls, Evon & Erin, I'll always remember these special boutiques with you guys!! Thanks! Kiss,Kiss.

Here are some pics of more vignettes around the house. Next week, I'll do a post of my collection of Vintage Christmas.
My porch entrance "Welcome Friends".
My Christmas tree, dressed with vintage corsages (I have over 25),vintage glass ornaments and handmade ornaments. My tree is very whimsical.
Do you want to see more? I don't want to give you pic overload of Xmas madness! Ok.
As, you can see I love me some bling and sparkle, this table is in the LR.
I love filling these cloches with vintage ornaments and beads, here are a few.
So, that's all for now. I hope you'll stop in again soon!
