Dreaming of a vintage white Christmas
I received my white Christmas swap ATCs the other day; what a beautiful package to get! It was so lovely the way she wrapped and embellished it.
Kim sent along these beautiful creations to all the swappers:
Here's a better photo of the one I sent six of; I hope the swappers loved them.

I haven't had too much time for creating, but I did make a point of working on two wreaths just the other night:
The first was a craft store basic evergreen one; first I took off all the stuff that came on it, and then I refurbished it all in sparkling silver. As you can see, Paul Simon was pretty pushed out of shape that I wouldn't let him help.
The second one was a vintage white wreath I found at a thrift store a while back. I had been saving it to decorate, and I chose white and red vintage picks to use:
How much do you love that little ice skater? She has a wooden head, and her body is made of beads. I adore her sparkly tinsel skating blades!
This kind of stuff makes me so happy.
I can hardly believe it's Christmas in one week!
We have been having COLD COLD COLD December days and nights -- it kind of does put you in the mood!
