I’m in a Fever

IMG_0577 - Version 2Just look at what came in the mail last week!  I am so anxious to get to work making wonderful stuff but, alas, it is still soooo cold here and – have I mentioned this before? – Santa’s Workshop, Southern Branch, does not have heat.

I have been collecting all manner of treasures over the wintertime and they all await me, still in their boxes.

Like a pair of fabulous LARGE (I mean BIG – never seen any so huge!) celluloid reindeer.  And little putz houses.  Masses of the solid colored balls I use for backgrounds.  Tinsel!  And vintage lights!  I am going to try something new with those this year.  Gorgeous hand-painted glass ornaments of all shapes and sizes: Polands, Shiny Brite, German, USA.  You name it, I’ve got ’em.

Last Saturday, I visited an antiques show and came away with a sweet composition angel tree topper.  Her dress is old dotted Swiss voile.

I will share some pictures later.  When the workshop warms up to something a bit warmer than a tomb.

Until then, like me, you will just have to dream of treasures to come.  Good night all.  Sleep tight.
