Craft Room Hutch!

I have a new addition to my craft room, this sweet hutch! It is a perfect little size to help store some of my supplies.
I bought it at Cottage Charm. Shop owner Kelly painted it a pretty "Duck Egg" blue using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
I love this paint and use it on my of my crafts.
~
Pink crepe paper, not toilet paper as one blogger thought at first!

~
This is my craft room where the hutch is now!
Click here if you would like to see more of my craft room
and where I love to create!
Have a wonderful day and your count down to New Years!

Oh, Christmas Tree!

Every year I set up this sweet Christmas tree honoring my Mother Gloria & Mother~in~law LaVerne.
They were both sweet, loving women.
This is a picture of my Grandmother Alberta as a model at 16.
My Mother looked like her.
The tree in all its glory!
They are true blue real angels now.

For more pictures of this sweet tree, you can see the rest of them here.

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Crochet Rocks!

I just had to share! My dear friend Darla J. made these amazing crochet rocks for me! 
Each lovingly made in my favorite colors. 

Have you ever seen these done before?
Such beautiful detail.
A little closer. Love the crystal beads.
I have them displayed on a pretty dish in my living room.
She also made me a darling pincushion!
Darla is so very talented and sweet as a button!
Thank you so much Darla! I LOVE them! xox

The Vintage Marketplace!

The Vintage Marketplace was this last weekend!
Here is my booth for my first show with TVM. I had a wonderful time! 
It rained the first day and it didn't keep the shoppers away!!! It was amazing! You could truly feel the Holiday Spirit!

I want to THANK all the wonderful ladies that came by to say hello! I am touched by your visits and you just made this little old heart swell! 
To meet new and old Blogger and Facebook friends was a thrill. Also,  thank you family and friends for your love and support. 
Thank you daughter Shelli for all your hard work and making it extra fun! xox
The Beehive Cottage...named one of our homes that 20 years ago and it has been part of me ever since.

All pictures are before showtime...rainy but beautiful.
