I'm busy as always. I'm going to post pictures of what's been happenin'!
Yes, it is November 25th and my tree is up. I had not intended on putting it up so early, but I needed to test the new rotating stand I found at the thrift store.
I told my husband I can no longer pack and unpack boxes and boxes and boxes of holiday decorations into the coming decades. It's just too much work. I told him I would divide his library into two spaces (since he took a bunch of books to work and there is more shelf space). This is his new compact library. Took me a day to get this space about 85% completed.
I've had some customer jewelry requests. This earring pendant set is made with shards from a Pyrex Family Flair platter that was received broken by the collector. It is wired with 14/20 gold filled wire and embellished with yellow jade and pearl beads.
One of those pretty little vintage corsages hubby found in a bag of junk at the thrift.
Custom box I made for one of the Pyrex ornaments I sold through my shop. I had some scrap vintage paper and the ribbon I found recently at a thrift.
A couple winter themed items I found at the thrifts--JAJ Pyrex Gaiety covered casserole and a single small glass with a great design.
Made a big batch of blue cabbage in the vintage cookware I love and June Rose JAJ holds a tortilla Espanol.
Some Christmas goodies, I'm trying to be very picky about what I pick up these days.
I finally bit the bullet and purchased the cream and sugar set for my Grant Crest Tempo dinnerware. It's just not the type of thing I am likely to ever run across locally.
Some thrift store finds. The Temporama coffee mugs were a great find. I picked them up for one of my traders who picked up a Franciscan Starburst creamer for me. I try not to pick up Pyrex unless it's something hard to find or highly desirable, but I still have a problem leaving refrigerator dishes behind.
