Christmas Spirit

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.

Christmas Wreaths

 

This week I was busy on vacation but I found time to squeeze in some pretty Christmas wreaths.  I have to say I was pretty productive.  I absolutely love the rose golds and golds with the pearls of the above Christmas wreath.  It is so unique and beautiful.  Definitely not traditional but beautiful and Christmasy all the same.  What do you think?

I was also able to complete some pretty traditional wreaths. Golds , silvers, reds, and greens.

Unique and pretty Christmas Angel Wreaths.  This is a pretty unique take on the Christmas wreath.

 

and then I decided to do something more antique and less Christmasy.  I had these lovely milkglass vases and I really wanted to do something pretty.  I ended up creating this piece…

All in all I had a very nice vacation.  A nice visit with my mother.  unfortunately tomorrow I am back to work lol.  I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Until next time!! See you all soon =)

Today I was super productive =)

I have made some unique items to share today.  Like this one with succulents.  You will have to tell me what you think.  Since I normally work with flowers.  This was a different idea for me.   What do y’all think?

Classic beauty

Today I started with a bunch of beautiful flowers and greenery.   I wanted to make something less holiday and more classic.

a bunch

I started with this container that I had bought a few weeks back.  I tend to hold things until I find just the right things to put into them.  When I received these pretty champagne roses I knew I wanted to use this container =) As well as a gold vase that I just loved. ( I forgot to take a pic of it beforehand =).

I started arranging my flowers and this is the creations I came up with.

I still had some flowers left  and decided I wanted to do a wall hanging.   Sticking with my theme I was able to come up with a very timeless piece.

I decided to start with the metal envelopes.  They seems to be the perfect fit for the flowers I was wanting to use.  In the end I think they were perfect.  I am in love with these creations.
