Christmas Projects

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!

happy new year

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
