New items that I painted for the week!

I painted 5 old glass Mrs. Butterworth bottles. Two with the above green sunflower design. One with a blue dress and some whimisical flowers on the apron and two with my black and white chicken design. I also got 3 napkin/salt and pepper sets painted with my chicken design.
This is a great old leather suitcase I got painted with a Raggedy and Mammy on it. I have an old skelton key hanging from the handle.
This is an old leather brief case that I painted a cute bear family on.

New Items Painted for Spring....

Here are a couple of new items that I completed this weekend. I painted a great old suitcase and a Bear and Moose breadbox, I also have canisters and letter holders to match the breadbox. I am working on 5 old syrup bottles, 75 frog magnets, 2 stacking metal picnic/lunch containers with chicken's on them and a picnic basket with sunflowers and cows. These should all be done by the end of the week. They will all be at my spring show at Weber County Fairgrounds.

Here's some of my vintage Christmas decorations....

I love old Christmas decorations and thought I would share a few that I put up in my home. I have three pieces of a vintage, made in Italy, nativity set that my Mom had when I was little, sure wish I had the rest of the set and the manager that my Dad made! By my front door I have a pair of vintage light up Santa's that really remind me of my childhood. My tree is decorated with glass ornaments and the majority of them are vintage, the red tear drop shaped ornament was made in Germany it's about 5" long with a dent in the front. I found a set of old bells that I fell in love with, here is a picture of the gold one. The red striped ornament was mine was I was a little girl so I know it is 50+ years old.
This is the time of the year I really love but it is also the time of the year that I really miss my parents!
