Forgotten Treasures

I have been on this cleaning frenzy for the last week. I literally can't stop myself. I have organized linen closets, cleaned drawers, packed up old clothes and rearranged furniture. I have been a mission. So the other day, while digging through cabinets I came across a few forgotten things.
The first thing I came across was this metal hanging basket. I completely forget I picked it up years ago and it was tucked in a box all this time. I think however I am going to part with it. It has a base for a candle although there are so many possibilities.

I also found this little metal wall pocket that just needs a bit of tlc and a few flowers. I think I shall part with this as well.

Last but not least, I found a huge box of wooden nickles. I'm not sure what I want to do with them. Some have a hole drilled in them, most are plain. If you have any ideas feel free to throw them my way. . for some reason I am drawing a blank. Well, that is all I have to share today. Have a wonderful last week of January (wow! can you believe it already?).

New Treasures for Pink Friday

The Beauty of Roses.

This week Make Mine Pink's theme for Pink Friday is Romantic Roses. I came up with a few new bottles using vintage papers and embellishments. This pink one is one of my favorites!

It has details surrounding the bottle.

I also made several little 3 inch bottles with roses. These would look pretty with a few little flowers peeking out a bit. These are just a few of the wonderful itmes available this Friday, January 23. Please visit us for some wonderful deals!

Show and Tell

A new week and so much to share. I have really had a productive week and thought I would give you a look at a few of the things I have made, found and embellished. So I guess I will just jump right in!

I went around this weekend tea dying just about everything I could find. I did several sets of tags and tied them with some pretty pastel crinkle ribbons. Simple but pretty.

Next is a set of file folders that I just couldn't pass up. They are new yet have the "vintage" look to them. Lots of fun and a great way to get organized. I use tons of file folders for all my pictures.
Ok, I know it's only January. . . but I had to try out some new things I got and played a bit with Easter goodies. Here is a set of bunny tags. . and below. . .
an Easter wall hanging with the words Happy Easter in French.
This week I hit a few junk shops and found an enormous bag of old buttons. I had my little ones play a game seperating them by color and they had a ball. I now have literally thousands of buttons but I am finding they are an addiction. I want more. .

and more!
I also did a bit of shopping from Count Your Blessings. If you haven't been you must visit her. She has a beautiful site and so many lovely treasures. I could look for hours. These quilt squares are adorable and I have so many ideas for them. I may even dust off my sewing machine.
Some other goodies I found were this card holder (I had to stick one of my new business cards Roxie designed in it- love them! I may add a little something to it before I put it up for sale.
I found this pretty little shabby wall pocket thingy. . lol.. . and. .
finally, this tray. There was just something about it I had to grab it. I don't think I will refinish it though. I may just sell it and leave the redo to someone else this time. Oh, and the little man just had to check it out too. Thanks for visiting and have a lovely week!

Show and Tell - A Bit of This and That

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years. I have been very busy working on projects and doing a bit of hunting and gathering. I have so many ideas and am chomping at the bit to get started on them. I have a mix of things to share this week, so here we go. . .

First up are some of the paper goodies we have been working on. Here is one of many sets Valentine tags we have made and listed this week. I just love working with pink/red and all the frilly trims. Such fun.Next up is a little altered collage wall hanging I made. I have several in the works and hope to get them up some time this week.

I also created a garland to hang up for Valentine's Day. I liked it so much I am making myself one to keep.We also put together some great new Scrap Pack kits for your own creations.

Last but not least, I took a few minutes to visit my favorite little antique store that is closing down and is practically giving things away. (I have been going almost weekly ) I found these little Napco busts and just couldn't pass them up. I don't know whether to keep them or sell them yet. I also found a very pretty doily and some vintage hankies for a project I am working on, and this pink dress inspiration board. It was just too cute. I am going to fix it up and list it.
Whew. . it has been a busy week. Thanks for visiting!
