Getting the booth ready for Christmas

I'm dreaming of a Whiiiiite (and pink and aqua) Christmas!
Hi guys! My last couple weeks have been a blur..that's a good thing though! I have been busy with my Etsy shops and also busy getting my local antique mall booth ready for Christmas. These ladies were a partially finished project that I finally completed (after they sat around for a couple months!)
I literally only had to add the white "frosting" on top. These were one of those projects that took waaaay longer than anticipated so I don't know if I will be making more or not!
I do like how they turned out. They did turn out like the picture I had in my head.
That doesn't always happen! These went to my booth.
This was a vintage Estee Lauder powder box I jazzed up a bit with one of my paper flowers.
These were some vintage gold glittered ornaments I upcycled. Of COURSE when I got to my booth I figured out I had left all 5000 of my ornament hooks on my dining room table so they had to go into a bowl!
Ready for your close up?
These are 2 awesome chairs/stools I found last week. The aqua one is a piano that paint!
She looks at home in my booth.
I made these this week..well..altered. The candles were already made I added the decals.
These are some vintage skates I upcycled this week. I love how these turned out!
One of my primitive hand painted Santas.
I found these cute vintage putz houses last week too. They are marked Japan. They are so sweet! The clock face ornaments is one like I have in my Etsy shop. The votive holder is something I decorated too.
I never pass these up and thankfully my husband doesn't either..he found 3 of these last week and brought them home for me to clean up..and distress.
One of my apothecary jars, silverplate and the sweetest little teacup.
I found this antique red and white transfer pitcher this week. It is part of a larger dresser set but I think it is fab on its own.
I found a bunch of pink and blue vintage ornaments this summer..these were marked West Germany. I love vintage ornaments!
I actually made this yesterday. It is an old stool I painted and decoupaged prints of 2 of my photos on top. I like nests and eggs!
I also redid this little bench or table. I painted it and the stain bled through. I liked the look so I left it and sanded the edges and added a decal and a bit of old hardware.
This was originally brass. It has a tiny acorn!
This was the third piece I did yesterday. It was sort of a primitive unfinished bench..not all that old but vintage.
I sneaked outside while Hunter was napping and painted it. I wanted to bypass his "help".
I added some cool decals I made with graphics from the Graphics Fairy.
Tomorrow I will have more pix from the Christmas festival "Small Town Christmas" that our town (Sweetwater, TN) puts on every year on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving. Stop back! Julia
