Happy December!

I received a scrumptious box of goodies a couple of days ago
... from sweet Sue!
She sure knows how to spread happiness and joy!
As I told her, if I didn't know better ... I'd think she was one of Santa's elves!!
Thank you, Sue!

Happy Fall!

I'm ready for fall! 
Now if only Mother Nature would cooperate!!
{It's still 90+ degrees here. Can you believe it?!}
I put my Halloween gourds on the mantel this year ...
and added this fabulous banner by The Crackling Crows!
I love it! Thanks, Ivonne!!

September is nearly over and I've begun creating holiday goodies. 

If you're not a follower of my selling blog
the next best place to find out when I've added something new 
is my Facebook page! Hope to see you there!

Happy Fall!

While junkin' this weekend,
I happened upon some vintage goodness ...
a couple of antique white porcelain door knobs 
and a few old insulators.

I think they'll make lovely bases for my bleached bottlebrush trees!


I hope your week is filled with inspiration!
Happy Monday!

Hugs, ♥ Vicki

Sometimes you can't see the forest...

...for the trees.

Bleached bottle brush trees in a silver bowl...
for inspiration to strike.

It's Friday...and the weekend awaits!

Button, Button ...

As those of you who follow my blog know, I love 
My mom knows this, too ... 
and that is how I ended up with this fabulous button collection!
{Thanks, Mom!}

She also knows that one of my favorite pastimes is sorting through old buttons. 
It's like a little treasure hunt ... 
you never know what trinket or oddity you'll come across.

This pile of buttons revealed several old bobbins from a sewing machine ...
and a wooden knob from a sewing machine drawer ...

...a seashell {perhaps from a summer vacation at the shore} ...

... an earring that lost its mate {perhaps it would turn up again some day} ....

... old jingle bells ...

... and a vintage key opener from a can of Spam.

Silly things ... useful things ... 
things that someone ~ at one time or another ~ didn't want to part with ... 
end up in a button jar!

Just waiting .... 
patiently ...
for me to find them again!

If the shoe fits ... !
These witch shoe ornies look great hanging on a Halloween tree!
Or ... remove the string hanger and display them in an old bowl!!

The pattern (#159 ~ If the Shoe Fits) is available 
if you'd like to make a pair or two!!

Happy Weekend!

I went to an estate sale today and found ...
I do love estate sales!!
You never know what you're going to stumble across ...
and, today, I got lucky!
I scored some beautiful vintage handmade Belgian lace ...
lovely antique German crane scissors ...
and antique buttons on cards {be still my ♥!}.
The notions are just perfect for embellishing my dolls!
I always try to incorporate something vintage in every creation.

I also found vintage glass Christmas balls {as if I need more!}
 ... and a lovely antique blown glass tree topper 
{which I'm thrilled about because I broke mine last year}.

Time to put my goodies away and get back to the studio...

There is something about fresh flowers that transforms any living space.
These gorgeous tulips were a gift to me ~ from my daughter ~ on Mother's day.
Each time I see them ... I can't help but smile! They make me so happy!!

Hope you're having a happy day, too!
