Vintage Ornament Wreaths

Busy weekend making vintage ornament wreaths; I followed the basic tutorial I found from Georgia Peachez and here is my slightly different version:

I really love this pink one and the pictures just don't do it justice:

I am terrified that these are going to fall or get dropped which of course would mean total destruction.  I can't wait to get these to BAYarts so they're off my hands and hopefully into the hands of a buyer!

Bad Blogger

I get annoyed when my favorite bloggers don't update on a regular basis and...then I take a month off blogging.  So hypocritical.  I haven't been sitting around, though.  Life is busy. Even though it's fall, which means the end of summer, which means I should have finished/sold most of my big pieces, here is my garage:

I really don't think I'm a hoarder.  I just like furniture.  I like refinishing it and making it beautiful again. Mr. Vintage Novella disagrees.  Not with the fact that I make it beautiful.  He disagrees with the hoarding label. ;-)  Some of this though will be for sale for the holiday season at one of my favorite organizations.

So, to get ready for the holiday season, I need to start making my scrabble ornaments.  Luckily my favorite aunt is helping me sort all of these tiles:

Yes, these are all iphone photos since I've been too busy to get the big girl camera out.  In addition to starting to make items for BAYarts, I've had to fluff my space at the antique store.  Christmas always starts early:

This pretty pink tree sold to a good friend's daughter two days after I put it up! A good problem to have.

Speaking of trees, I've been bleaching bottle brush trees (ignore the cluttered countertop in the background):

Today I started working on this gorgeous dresser which is going to BAYarts next month.  It's in rough shape, but it's so gorgeous I am determined to save it:

I mean, check out these legs:

She's going to get a coat of Annie Sloan chalk paint in Antoinette, a pretty pink color.

In addition to all of these projects, I've had tons of papers to grade (but it's more bearable with my favorite pens):

And if that weren't enough, my furry child demands that I sit with him every night:

It's exhausting just thinking about all this. Time for bed.
