Metal frames are so inexpensive to pick up at the thrift store.
Simply paint with glue and add some sparkle for a pretty way to embellish a present.

I like to add  monograms to the front of these frames and use as  parcel toppers.
Happy day!

Well winter arrived here on the West Coast in full force yesterday with our first snow fall!!

I love making these paper pinwheels.....these banners were a hit at our Festive Nest sale last Christmas and I have made individual parcel toppers using this idea for Christmas this year (pictures to follow at a later date).  You can find them for sale at The Passionate Home.
I have been receiving lots of emails enquiring about our Festive Nest and when and where it is this year.....I am so sorry to tell everyone that we are not doing a Christmas sale this year due to some health issues among some of the group.   BUT DON'T WORRY..... all is well and we will be back with a spring sale!!!!!!

I am in the midst of moving homes (all before Christmas) so am completely overwhelmed with that which is why I have been so absent from the blogging world!  Looking so forward to our move....a smaller house and yard will allow me more crafting time!!!!!!

Keep warm my blogging friends!

I love these big glittered snowballs made from the pages of vintage books.....
These snowballs were pretty labour intensive to make and I wish I could direct you to the link of the blogger who makes wreaths using this method but I can't for the life of me remember it.
So pretty standing alone....or.....grouped together.

Happy day!

Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look what they do when they stick together.

Happy November bloggers!!!!!
Time to start thinking a little about the Christmas decorating..........don't you think?
Love this vintage shoe elf sitting beside a hand dyed and glittered tree....

Hope all is well...
