White Wednesday-Crafting Christmas


Happy White Wednesday!!

I know so many think it's too soon
to be seeing Christmas and holiday things!
We have a rule of no Christmas music
until after Thanksgiving, so I'm right there
too!

BUT...

For us shop owners, we've got to
get a jump on it, and start work early!

I have been having so much fun playing
with these vintage style bottle brush trees!



Each one is one of a kind...my favorite way to create!!


I filled this one with vintage goodies!


It sits in a fabulously tarnished vintage silver plated bowl.
It makes me smile to use old things in my creations!!

Are you making any Christmas/holiday crafts now?
Handmade items make such wonderful gifts!!



Don't forget to enter my French Farmhouse Giveaway!!
Just click this photo and you're there!!
Ends 11/15!!

Have a joy filled day!!
Hugs,

And it's mine now, Becky! : ) I think this will look great in my dome clock cloche I just redid recently. I measured, so it should work out good. Plus, I'm already on my way to being ready for Marty at A Stroll Thru Life's holiday cloche party!

Your Vintage Bottlebrush Tree Creation is fabulous! I always loved the old Bottlebrush Tree Decorations and this is a Beautiful way to add other Vintage Treasures to make an amazing Vignette. I'm enjoying all of the early Christmas Inspiration of Retailers and Blog Friends but as of yet I will refrain from Christmas Decor or Projects until just after Thanksgiving, which is our Family Custom... I'm still languishing and savoring the rich hues & ambiance of Autumn in our Home. However, I have already begun to take loads of Photos of Christmas Inspiration so that when I'm ready I'll have a Theme for this year's Christmas Decor and Styling.

Your bottle brush tree is just gorgeous, Becky! I love the silver bowl that you sat it in, what a great idea! And the vintage jewelry and glittered accents are the perfect touch! I'm making a few Christmas items as well to sell. I agree, I don't like to feel "rushed" by the season, especially all of those commercials on tv already!!
