My before and after wallpaper box....finally

Remember this "beauty" that I found at Goodwill?

I used my favorite wallpaper, sanded it down, then attached a...

very cool old victorian children's block with the word "vintage"

I love how the top looked after I ripped off the fabric topping, couldn't have planned that one better!

The inside is still a bit of a mystery to me because the glue that someone used on this is so hard and thick it's hard to remove.

This is a portion of the top after I took off the trim that was there before........perfect!

I didn't have a replacement knob so I simply covered the one that was already on there with a piece of old wallpaper....what else?!

I do hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving. We had family come down and it was perfect! I look forward to the coming season and simplicity is my word going forward.....what's yours?

Such pretty pretties and just plain cool stuff~~~~~

prettiest ribbon packaging

cute and complete child's card game

lover-ly candy box

entire box of party cards

pretty half doll for your artwork (maybe an angel?)

gorgeous hanky with "Mother" on it

beautiful boudoir hanger

And that's not even all of what I found today!
I'm working hard at keeping my shop stocked up for the upcoming season and I do hope it's a great one.
We're hosting Thanksgiving this year so I'm preparing for that as well as trying to keep the store stocked. The flea today helped me out a lot so I can list a few things every few days until Thanksgiving is over and then devote some more time to it.
I hope you're all getting ready for the holidays and enjoying it.
Remember, no stress this year! I'm making as many gifts as I can and not worrying about it.......hope you do the same...;).
Take care friends!!!!!!

Refreshing my shop..........

It's pretty much a constant thing this being a shop owner, I don't care whether you have a B&M store or a virtual store....lot's of work! I got inspired by this angel head on the graphics fairy website (the best for free and wonderful graphics!) so I decided to make this scripture card angel.....she'll be listed soon.

as will these super cute vintage and glittery bells with  their awesome box.

I was thrilled to find another awesome demi john.....is there anything cooler?

And this amazing brass safety pin basket blew me away! Oh my goodness, the amount of work involved in making this I can't even imagine!

And this beauty stole my heart....she would look perfect surrounded by some vintage ornaments...maybe pink and cream?
Well, that's all I've got right now, it's a lovely three day weekend and the weather is going to be freezing tonight.
I'm ready for it. I'm off to create some more.
Have a happy, happy weekend!

Tart tin obsessed.......

Admittedly, I think I need an intervention! I have a huge jar filled with all shapes and sizes of these vintage tart tins.....they make the most wonderful ornaments! I have several in my Etsy shop right now with more to come.....I also love using them to hold small candles around my home.
How about you? What are you obsessed with lately?
