Precious angel

My sweet new grandbabe, Molly Kate.   Being fussy and trying to coo....5 weeks old.

This is her other Grandma holding her.  Grammy Eileen. I'm terrible at taking pitures and such, but here is this little punkin'  look at those cheeks!!!




We had a brunch on Saturday, fruit, pastries from Panera and I made a breakfast casserole .  mmm.  No pictures of that though.

I made some time to make a few things too.

 More ornaments with nature theme.

 Banana pecan bread......pecans from our trees.  Pay no mind to my ancient stove.  I think it's original to the house.   still works though.....so I am going to keep using it until I decide to redo the kitchen.  We need to paint, remove wallpaper, and add new appliances.  Plus I need to reconfigure the pantry.  Its long and narrow and dark. 
 
Jolly old St Nick stocking.  Bits of laces and dream from an old pillow case.  I added the faux fur....hahaha.  It is a store purchased velvet stocking and I wanted to change it up a little.  What do you think?

Thats my weekend....how was yours?

Til later ya'll,
Diane

Thrifting adventures

I always check out the 3 local thrift stores on  my way home.  The first one, hmmm, nothing. 

Found a needlepoint stocking for $1...and a battenburg lace tree skirt.  Gonna tea stain it and use it for my "special tree".  I am going to spray paint it!!!  But that's a later post.....

I almost headed home and decided to stop at one last shop.  They only take cash but I figured if I find something I'll have the lady hold it and I'll come back later with cash.

I looked in an old plastic storage bin a look at what I found!  They look much better in person.  (Is that a correct term for a thing??  whatever...)






These are faux mercury glass ornaments.  Whoever donated them to the thrift store either had a shop or a booth, and sold them for $5.99.  I bought them all at thrift prices of course!

Someone hand painted the lettering on them, but I got rid of that and turned them into this.






I think I got the images of the angel child from Dawn at Feathered Nest.  Maybe Graphics Fairy.  You can find these in my Etsy shop. 

Thanks for looking and God Bless ya'll.
