Just saying "hello!"

Been crafting up a storm lately. Hmm, what could this project be? And yes, I am painting over that painting I made earlier this year. Oh, well. Time for something new!

The lovely Adriane and Anna gave me this wonderful blue and yellow plate for my plate collection. It is replacing my favorite plate that fell off the wall and broke. That broken plate was from 1883! And it was my first decorative plate that I bought. I was heartbroken at first but there's no fixing it now. I'm thinking about making some sort of mosaic with the leftover pieces.

Oh, Christmas Tree! Part Deux

Lookie what I bought. Yes, I am a sucker for vintage name brands. What can I say? With the addition of the old school Shiny Brites my newer ornaments are looking extra shiny, almost too shiny.

And finally, another vintage item for last - the angel. Doesn't really match the silvery theme but this angel is as old as me and was bought while we were in Germany. Got to keep up the tradition.
