I've discovered as I get older that I just don't have what it takes
to put up a big ol' Christmas tree and all of the decorations anymore.
Simple and small is perfect for now...and this little tree was just the ticket!!
I found this 3 ft. tree at w-mart and saw it in the display section, just 25 bucks!
It has red berries and tiny little pine cones wired onto the branches.
PLUS it was pre-lit too!!!
There weren't any in boxes so they let me purchase the floor display.
I loved that!!! It was already assembled and I just plopped it in my car
and then put it right onto my buffet in our living room!!!!
I've added a few bird's nests, burr oak acorns and some beautiful feathers...
I'm gathering a few things from the studio to add to it.
It's definitely a work in progress but I just love it!
ALSO in other news...OK now, don't faint.
I actually went junking a few weeks ago and I just have to share
the sweet things that I brought home!
This precious frame was priced so reasonably I just had to buy it!!
I haven't figured out what I'm going to put inside but no worries,
I'm sure I will!
The rest of my treasures?
A couple of beautiful antique photos and vintage buttons.
It was such a wonderful day spent with a precious friend.
Can you believe that I'm finally getting back to my organizer???
It has already been purchased by a dear friend and customer but
my mom and dad came into town for a week for Thanksgiving and
delayed my finishing it up. I'll be sure to share photos of the finished piece
in my next post!
Something else I've worked on recently....these little nested egg soaps!
I made these for my friend Lisa of Tarnished and Tattered,
she's having an antique sale and wanted to have some of our soap!!!
And this photo below is a recipe I saw on Facebook....they. sound....DELICIOUS!!!
One last photo to share ~
Our sweet granddaughter Clara with her cousin Brant at Thanksgiving.
They both had the best time playing together!
I scanned the wonderful antique photographs I found, just for you...
Just click to enlarge them and right click to save them to your own computer!!!
Thank you always, always for stopping by to see what I'm doing!!!
Wishing you a beautiful December weekend precious friends,
hugs and love,
