Christmas Creations

My real job has been keeping me very busy lately and inbetween I am working away to get the house decorated for the holidays.  I’m not sure of the final count yet, but I think I am up to 10 or 11 trees this year!  I love it!

I have also been trying to get some of my projects done for my etsy shop and for my eBay store.

This is what I have been working on.

At my last trip to the Big Flea outside of Washington, DC I picked up a bunch of pretty vintage jewelry.  My BFF and partner in crime Beth gave me a lovely vintage round piece of mirror and I put it all together to create this pretty piece.  I love how it turned out.  If I hadn’t already made this one for myself I would absolutely have to keep this.  But mr. georgiapeachez won’t tolerate two of this girly items hanging around so I will put this one in my Etsy shop.  sigh.

I recently made a pretty christmas stocking for my good friend Susan from a vintage beaded cardigan.  I got that idea from some stockings that were in last year’s issue of Country Home Christmas.  I made two more stockings from that cardigan.

I have put them in my Etsy store too.  These were fun to make and I will be on the prowl for more of these vintage cardigans that need some TLC and would enjoy a second life.

OK, only two trees left to decorate so I will get busy with that and start taking some pictures of them so that I can share.

  1. I can’t imagine doing half of what you do and I don’t even have a real job! Have you discovered an extra 10 hours a day that the rest of us aren’t privy to?

  5. Wow, I’m so behind. Google reader just greeted me with 300 unread posts. Work has kept me off the computer. I love the stockings and the mirror.
    When I catch up, I’ll be featuring your case in the next day or so. My daughter accidentally spilled cocoa on it and thankfully the case protected my mac – (another selling point for sure!) I managed to get the cocoa out – yeah! I’ll be in touch!

  6. No wonder I couldn’t find any vinatge jewelry I wanted to buy (just to wear) at The Big Flea. You beat me to all the good stuff! Gorgeous re-use. I love it.
