Busy Lil Elf

Greetings and Holykisses,

Thought I'd show yall why I've not been online as much.
-It's safe to show a few things now... but others will have to stay a secret for a while longer. Here are a couple snowmen nodders that I made for a couple friends in California. The rusty springs were out of an old Chevy pickup seat that had once belonged to my Angel Mother and her Hubster. Dontchya know, my poor friends will be sweeping up micca flakes til next year with these bobbleheads around! :)

And here is a tray of clothespins I painted after being inspired by some that I saw on Pinterest.
I'm using them on
Ribbon around our doorway to hang Christmas cards.

Just this week on another blog I saw the cutest little primitive tree.
It was unlike any I'd seen before! -- Well this morning I stopped by one of my favorite
Vintage Shoppes and discovered this one on an olde jelly cupboard. I got it for just over $6bucks!! It's not exactly like the one I saw online but... it's a little "different" and I like that!
It just has a metal base so I found an old feedsack and wrapped it with jute twine.
Think I'll leave it out year round.

-And yesterday; inspired by Pinterest again, I used a bird template found there... and made a few paper ornies. This one I kept and added a crown glittered with German glass and a rhinestone eye.

That's all I can share for now.
But I'm so thankful to be done shopping and hope to hole up in my craft room and play with more glitter and rusty springs. ;) Stay tuned... and I'll try to share more soon.

Holykisses xoxo
