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.
