Me on a Monday: Gold Pipecleaners, Vintage Ornaments and Centerpieces!
I do so enjoy the days leading up to Christmas. There is tweaking to the decorations around the house, places to go, people to see. Currently I'm stalking the Christmas section at the ReStore for Vintage glass ornaments. Got a couple of bags for a whole dollar the other day! Since I am STILL working on the large tree, that was pretty awesome! (I have completely embraced the whole Christmas thing and we have three trees...don't ask.)
This past weekend we were off to Civil Air Patrol for the First Annual Christmas Party. I had been asked to make centerpieces for all the tables and I was pleased to see that the basket full I made were enough! By basket I mean laundry basket...had to find something sturdy to use...mason jars aren't lite!
Speaking about lights..They had little battery operated candles, so it really improved the "mood" of the gym we were hanging out in..huge thanks to Lisa over at You Made Me Ink for the idea!
While I was on the red, white, gold and yellow kick...I made some angels for the two ladies who did the majority of the work getting the party organized.
I am really enjoying using up those vintage hankies and those gold pipe cleaners...I have a few more angels to make, but it's a busy week....and I've fallen quite behind on scrapbook pages...so we will see what I get done!
Happiest of Mondays to You and waving hi to Sian over at From High in the Sky, the Me at a Monday girl!
