Wow, it's been a long time since my last blog. I'm so sorry! I know how fun it is to visit blogs and see a new post.
Life has been pretty busy around here. Between participating in the Christmas show at Monticello
, Christmas, Narnia practices, all I can say is WOW! The new year didn't start out the best for me. I woke up to go shopping New Years Eve only to find a car that wouldn't start at all, nothing. I put the key in, turned it and "zilch, nadda, dead". So now, we've got to take it into the shop and you know it won't be a simple fix, it never is. But, I'm glad I have a car and a car that is paid for! Yeah!
Now onto bigger and better things. Around Christmas I received a call from Joyce at Monticello
asking if I would like to decorate the front window at Monticello, for the month of January. It sounded a little overwhelming as I didn't have much time to prepare, but a lot of fun too. My mind started racing thinking of the things I could put in there. Wow, two booths, mine and the window, much better than storing it at my house. I've been loving the "French Country" look so I decided to try and capture it with the things I already had.
I had a lot of time to create things during our snowed in snow days. These bottles are a few things that I embellished with different vintage items.
I had fun making pillows also. I used vintage ticking and combined it with old lace.
I made a few of these pincushion crowns at the last minute, they were a lot of fun to make. I just love using vintage paper and old jewelry.
Here is one of the cutouts I made using a vintage photos.
Here are a few old clothespins that were given new life.
We found this chandelier in a box at an estate sale. It was dirty and many of the crystals needed to find their place back on the chandelier. My #1 took every piece apart. He then washed, and rewired it putting it all back together. It turned out just beautiful.
And last a picture of the front window. Oh yes, I finished painting the green frame that I showed you in a previous post. You can see the gentleman peeking out in the upper left hand corner.
I guess today I will be calling the insurance company to see if we have towing on our policy. It looks like we do, but you never know. I'm sure I read the policy much different than the insurance agent does.
Thank you for stopping by to see what has been going on in my little corner of the world. I hope your New Year has started out WONDERFUL!
