We made these Snowflake Magnets from vintage chandelier crystals and an assortment of great old papers from our scrap stash. I love how they turned out -- each one different, just like real snowflakes!
We also made four different types of photo holders using vintage bottles, metal odds and ends, thread spools and rulers. Here are the thread spools; my son was in Indy for the final band concert of this season; I was wishing he was there to help, because he would have loved using the dremel to make the tiny holes in the top of each spool! We had those little wire holders since the beginning of the year; anyone have an idea of what they are? I have no clue.
In addition to the projects pictured, we made a batch of our signature Vintage Holiday Vignettes and handmade Holiday Banners, plus embellished Wonderland Jars and tiny feather trees. My mom, aka Granny Elf, was a huge help in getting everything finished -- an extra pair of hands for cutting, pasting, tying, you name it, makes everything go that much faster.
Many thanks to our wonderful customers for taking just about everything home! We'll be hard at work this week on another round of projects -- plus more furniture and smalls -- for next Sunday's Wheaton Antique Show; check the show sidebar for details and come see us.
P.S. As I mentioned in the comment section of the post on these burlap basket liners, we ended up going with stencil numbers to embellish them; here's the photo I promised. I think I'll use this post for Transformation Thursday this week, so if you're reading on Thursday or after, remember to click the button on our sidebar to see all the other great projects listed this week! xo
