Hello Everyone!! I hope you are all having a fantabulous day!.  Today I have been working on some gift items and a few other surprises.  My schedule has been pretty demanding and its only going to get more demanding as the holidays approach.   I can handle it though! Last week the Sugar Plum festival was on at the Orange County Fair Grounds.  I took my mom.  We had a great time browsing through all kinds of fun handmade items.  I really love that every time I go I find hidden treasures.  This past week was no different.  While browsing each individual booth I found someone selling all these amazing Boyds  bears. Then My excitement grew when I found a Boyds farm wagon.  From then on I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  I am always looking for things that would make lovely gifts.  I ended up buying 3 bears. Today I created gift items with 2 of the bears.  These are my creations.


A few weeks back I did a blog post on these great finds I found to create flower arrangements in.  Today I was able to complete a few.   The wheel barrel above with the cute bear holding the apple was one.  I had found this beautiful metal vintage looking basket. I created this floral arrangement using Vintage blush roses and vintage style daisies.  I used Moss to hide the ugly foam.  How do y’all think it turned out?

I also made this pretty arrangement.

Now I just need to find flowers for this birdcage that I found.  I am super excited to do this one.

I absolutely love Milkglass vases.  I have two more that I was able to score at an Antique store my last visit to Texas.  I am waiting on flowers to arrive for them.  This is one I was able to complete a week ago.

I really appreciate you all visiting.  You all make my day!!!.  Have a fabulous weekend.

Until next time.

  1. Oh my word Tam!!! You have been busy!

    When faced with a selection of items in one post (from any blogger, with any crafty product) .. I try to choose a favourite. Now I’ve found I managed to get it down to two favourites in this post, but can’t narrow it down to just the one.

    So … if I was shopping at a craft fair and saw your goodies on display, I think I would HAVE to buy the Boyds bear sat in the wheelbarrow – for it doesn’t just speak to me, it SHOUTS “buy me. choose me!” … so that one’s a no brainer.

    The second ‘favourite’ is the trug (you might call them a tool caddy, possibly) with the pink Peony and what I think are white roses. Those colours are very ‘me’, so I’d just have to buy that one too.

    All beautiful though Tam. Very well done, you clever thing!
