FINALLY some vintage Christmas creations

I am slowly, but surely getting in the Christmas mood...

I finally found some time to do a little creating. My poor kitchen was a MESS and glitter was
everywhere this past weekend when I was all done!
I wouldn't be surprised if hubby even wore some
to work today! lol. I will say it was fun though.

I made a bunch of spool ornaments and almost
everything on them is vintage.
{except the paint,glue,jingle bells and glitter}

I used vintage tinsel, pages from an old Bible that was
falling apart, vintage songbook pages and vintage
German scrap.

Most have jingle bells hanging from the bottom, but
a few do not. I even used vintage tinsel cord on many
of them.

This flower isn't vintage either, but the rhinestone button
in the center of it is.

Many of these will be headed up to my booth, but I suppose I could be persuaded to sell a few online also if anyone is interested. :)

Have you done any Christmas creating yet? Happy Monday!

Hi Sandi-thanks for visiting my blog! My barn isn't heated either, and yes, I wanted to work on it this past summer and never got to it. so I hope to do it in the spring.
I love your little ornamenets...they are adorable! I have to keep them in mind, but I just can't bring myself to think about Christmas yet even though it is right around the corner!

G'day sweet Sandi ~ I read the library write. It is heart warming ... PAY IT FORWARD is something I do many, many times every chance I get.
Wonderful write.

Sniff, boo-hoo! The barn is gone ... how sad. I loved it, I LOVE barns.

Now on the brighter side ... are you selling those ornies you just made? They are adorable. LMK

How is everything else coming along? I am doing much better.

Hugs & love, Marydon
