You just never know where I am going with these posts, do you?
I have been looking at these two vintage gumball machines down in my studio for a while now. My original plan was to put strands of Christmas lights in them. And then I hit upon this idea!
I filled the one that I am keeping with tiny Shiny Brite bell ornaments...
And the one that is going to the booth at Memory Lane is filled with tiny Shiny Brite ball ornaments...
I was going to put that one in my Etsy shop and then realized the shipping logistics of it and it was something I was not willing to undertake. I just couldn't imagine the ornaments arriving to their destination in anything less than shards of glass.
Speaking of Etsy, I shipped my very first overseas package this morning to a lovely woman in London Town! Which is the reason why I have been speaking with a British accent all morning...that borders on Australian with a bit of an Irish brogue. I seriously adore a British accent.
But I live in Iowa. And that fact alone makes me look odd when I say "Pip!Pip! My Boy!" to hurry Bud along the sidewalk to school.
Also, to those of you who inquired, I am going to be putting some of the framed pictures on Etsy, so be watching for that this week.
