A Handmade Christmas - Wreaths

Written by: Cathy Carroll; Vintage, Paint and more...

A Handmade Christmas - Part 2

Today I am going to show you a few wreaths you can make.
I love wreaths and have always made my own.
I don't remember ever buying a ready made one.
They are so expensive
I have found I can make them quite easily
and stick within my budget.
Thru the years I have made every kind you can imagine.
But, for this series I am going to stick to the ones I am using in my d├ęcor
this season.

Handmade for Christmas - Trees

Written by : Cathy Carroll; Vintage, Paint and more...

After writing yesterday's post about all the
Christmas inspiration that is floating around in blog land,
I thought I would write a series on
A Handcrafted Christmas.
I love to create and craft
Christmas is probably my favorite time of the year to do this.

Good morning friends...
I have been busy crafting on Christmas decorations
have found so much inspiration on Pinterest and at the Linky Parties
I attend.
I just wanted to share a few of the things that I really have fallen in love
with this year.

A few weeks ago I went to the thrift shop to purchase some glassware
for several projects I had in mind to do.

Thrift Store Finds

Written by: Cathy Carroll; Vintage, Paint and more...

Fall is in full swing here at the beach.
The days have been mostly sunny and breezy.
Perfect for being out and about
there is nothing I like more
thrift shopping on these days.
So, the other day Papa and I set out to run some errands
just happened to stop at our favorite thrift store.
Sometimes I find nothing and sometimes I really hit it
like this day.
