It all goes back a couple of years ago when I bought a plethora of feedsacks at auction. I went home with some awesome animal, western and heart graphic feedsacks (click here to view the feedsacks I put on ebay.) I also took home some newer or smaller Christmas feedsacks for which I could not figure out a use.
So I gave those to my friend Katie who actually sews,
and she turned out a bunch of pillows to sell last year.
I snagged a couple of the pillows last year.
Sadly, she is no longer selling at my vintage mall.
But she had a couple of pillow covers left over which
she was kind enough to give me. Yeah for me.
They mix and match perfectly and look great on my new Ikea couch.

I have a couple of friends that had an overflow of personal Christmas décor. They approached me about doing a little sale over one afternoon in December -- sure! I always have an abundance of Christmas stuff to sell.
Of course, the problem is trying not to buy all of
each others Christmas excess.
So much fun holiday bling.
Theirs was a mix of new and old.
And mine was predominately old.
This gorgeous white stole sold.
The plateau mirror sold.
The etched mirror on the left sold
I have a pair of these awesome antique wire
flower baskets. This one didn't sell, but will be going to
the antique show with me in February.
This was my favorite (first time out) piece that I took,
a vintage (funky) ceramic tree.

When I get together with my niece, we always do a "craft". Prior to spending time with her, I did not associate good things with the word "craft". Tacky plastic cross-stitching kind of things.

The whole project began with the unearthing of these great green hinges.
With a little help from spraypaint I thought they would look like
I taped off the areas that I wanted to stay green,
and used a nice brown spraypaint for the rest.
Then what to do with them?
I dug this trunk out of my "antiques shed".
It was already green and had the license plate attached.
I added the handle (which had such great chippy paint!)
My husband painted the Kringles name.
I stenciled "TREE FARM".
I added the chain to keep it open,
and attached the hinge "trees".
So, for the holidays it can be left open for trees,
birch logs, etc. ...
and after the holidays it could be closed and
used for decorative storage.
