A Few Home Projects in the Works...

In the midst of completing custom orders, stocking my Etsy shop and helping plan a wedding, I decided to add a few home projects to the mix.  You see, I have a terrible problem of sitting still.   Just not my thing.  Don't get me wrong, I'll sit & watch a movie occasionally and of course an episode of Survivor (can't help it I'm addicted), but overall we watch very little tv.   Plus my mind never stops going so I always have *ideas* and that is both a curse and a blessing.  So, after deciding that it was too late to create the Thanksgiving advent calendar I was coveting, I decided to put my mind on Christmas.  With both gift giving & decorating in my thoughts, I couldn't resist these...

Check out these wonderful bursts of color...


I love how they paired bright colors with the natural dark antique pieces!


Ooh, let the light shine in!  Can you say cozy?

Commissioned to come up with a few antique tin pieces in turquoise, I came up with these...

A few of these will end up in my Etsy shop....
