What’s Up?

My blog posts have been far and few in between, however, that does not mean I’ve been slacking. Oh no, I have been keenly aware that Christmas is approaching faster than I can eat chocolate the speed of light. That means I’ve got to make, make and make some more Christmas items for my upcoming shows. This is what our kitchen looked like last Thursday.

I was working on these tart tin ornaments. They were a pain fun to make with all the tiny bits and bobs involved!

Then I made these vintage style Christmas corsages. I think these are so cute. They are like the ones your grandmother  wore and you thought were tacky.

And these things are just the tip of the iceberg. I have a bunch of other things I need to make as well as finish making embellishments for a swap I’m doing with a friend.

Please excuse my lack of posts, but know that I will try to keep you up-dated on all the Christmas goodness I am making!

Easter is Finished!

Okay, I know it’s only February 25th and Easter is not until April 20th this year. So you must be asking, “How can Easter be finished already?” Well, anyone who is in retail knows you must always be working on the next season so your merchandise will not be put out too late. Valentine’s Day is over so now people are looking to buy Easter items.

Today I finished making the last items to sell at Mossy  Cottage for this Easter season, so that is how I can say Easter is finished. Unfortunately, those of us who make items for retail get tired of the holiday decorations before the holiday actually arrives! This is especially true for Easter and Christmas because I tend to make so many items for these holidays. Hopefully in a week or two bunnies, chicks and lambs will be appealing to me again! Here are the last items I finished today. They are Easter arrangements made with all sorts of vintage ornaments, vases, bottle brush trees, etc… Everything I used for these arrangements I already had on hand.

And while you are enjoying these pictures, I’m off to dig out my stash of flags, stars and seashells!
