I'm looking forward to more rest now that the holiday season is over. I love the holidays, but they are exhausting, aren't they? I had a successful selling season at BAYarts where the following items sold:
My favorite project- the hot, hot, hot Union Jack:
I sold every single scrabble ornament I made (and I made over 60!)
These adorable dog feeder chairs finally sold after being painted yellow and adding a touch of whimsy with stickers (a suggestion from Mr. Vintage Novella - thanks, Honey!)
And this sweet little child's roll top desk with swivel chair:
Some things didn't sell, like my pretty pink dresser:
I still think it's beautiful and I'm hoping it will sell this summer.
I made some very pretty tea cup displays that didn't sell:
A few sold, but these did not. Who knows?
I also worked on a few projects at home like painting my fireplace mantel, which I have been wanting to do for some time. Before:
And the after:
Ah, so much better.
I also made a gift for my favorite aunt: a wooden initial adorned with vintage costume jewelry, some of which belonged to my great grandmother:
So, I hope my lack of blogging for December is understandable! Time to rest a little before getting ready for summer shows!

I certainly didn't intend to take the entire month of December off, but there were too many projects going on. I will post before the end of the week with pics of everything. Hoping to get more rest and find balance this year! Beautiful graphic below from the graphics fairy
