Decorating For The Holidays

 The decorating has BEGUN! Actually, it was mostly done last Friday, but there is still a lot of moving around of things right now. I like to call this week the transition stage...decor moves from spot to spot until it looks 'at home'.

That line of lights going down the side of the mantle is driving me nuts. But waddya do??

Enjoy your day! Sonya


I Simply Cannot Keep It All...

Oh My Goodness. I have a lot of Christmas decor. It is time to start letting some things go. We decorated the house on Friday and somehow ended up with a whole huge box of things that we had put out last year but have no room for this year. How did that happen?? 

And don't even get me STARTED on what my studio looks like...a bit like a Christmas scene exploded and there are treasures everywhere on every single surface. And no where to display a lot of it.

I love me a dime store nativity, but if I don't have room to put them all out and they are in storage in the studio...that just doesn't seem right. So I need to pick a favorite (ok, 2) and let all the others go. Or buy a bigger house. I kid!

So if I do say so myself, there are going to be some fabulous goodies heading into the Etsy shop this coming week.

Enjoy your evening,


The White Wreaths

Winter Wreath

These are the latest wreath creations that are heading to  my booth at Memory Lane. They both are made using a white, almost iridescent tinsel wreath. Both really POP!

Speaking of Memory Lane, I had a fellow thrifter/seller ask me how to make these...not a big deal as I've done tutorials on this, as you all know, the secret is in the vintage balls. But I was surprised walking past her booth yesterday to see her selling the same creations. At the same flea market that I am selling them in. At half the price that I am selling mine for. Which is sort of not cool.

After the loud involuntary noise that escaped my body upon seeing them (it sort of sounded like a loud "WHAT?!?!?!") I am letting it go. Mostly because mine are still cooler. And it serves me no purpose to get mad.

Bright Christmas

The colors in this one are just so happy! I have one more wreath I am planning on making this year and then will be focusing on some other Christmas crafting. With glitter.
Enjoy your day! Sonya
