Cotton Christmas

Cotton Christmas (1)

Cotton Christmas

Continuing along, here is wreath #3 for the Country Living Fair and it is called Cotton Christmas for the darling cotton Santa who is in residence on the right side of the wreath.

I actually bought him this past summer at the Golden Glow Convention in Asheville, NC.  What I do not know is if he was made in Japan or if he was handmade by somebody stateside for their own Christmas decor. I suspect it was the second scenario. At any rate, his body is all cotton (it’s sort of flat), and he has a cool sparkly belt and a wonderful decorated candy cane. His face is a scrap featuring a very jolly looking Santa.  I simply could not resist bringing him home with me. Here he is nestled among a few of the other treasures I bought:

Cotton Christmas has some other very cool things. The top, for example. I used a foil reflector with a special Poland indent on it (kind of like the sun, I think) and then placed 3 teardrop-shaped ornies directly to the right which give a real sense of movement. Directly under the green teardrop is a fabulous old corsage.  That all then segues into a Shiny Brite top and a poppy green P_E_A_C_E ball (I really sweated which letters would show – such a drag you can’t see the whole thing).  Take a peek below to see it all close up.

Moving on around the wreath you will find plenty of great ornaments: Polands and Shiny Brites galore; a Jewelbrite diorama on the bottom left, right underneath a poinsettia ball; and a pretty green and silver topper slashing its way across the middle.  The whole is accented with some vintage curly gold garland and finished off with red beaded garland.

Here are a few more pictures so you can see close-up.

For me, this guy spells Christmas in a big way. I hope you love him, too.

Have a great night, everyone!

It’s Cookie Time

I have neglected you all sadly lately but, honestly, I haven’t meant to, it’s just that I am up to my eyeballs getting ready for the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio. It opens 2 weeks from today, on Sept. 12th.  Have you bought your advance tickets yet?

I have been either holed up in the workshop making new Glittermoon Vintage Christmas treasures to take with me (and, boy, do I have the burnt fingertips to show for it – ow) or else been in my office matting and printing photographs.  Not to mention packaging cards.

But before I head off to rustle up a late dinner, I wanted to share one of the new babies.  It is called COOKIE TIME.

Cookie TimeCan you guess why?  Yup, that’s a vintage plastic cookie plate that makes up the center of the wreath.  Remember those?

So, add a groovy red-cheeked Santa Claus with white (!) boots (how do you suppose he keeps them clean?), a drippy bow with jingle bells on chains, plus all sorts of other goodies and you have a colorful and fun package.  Chock full of holiday cheer.

He will be accompanying me to Columbus.

Ho ho ho.

I think I’ll shuffle off and grab a cookie.

Back soon with more goodies.

Cheers!

 

I Bet You Can Guess This

What do these two things have in common?

Just a Quickie

I just wanted to give you a quick peek at what’s going on out in the workshop.  I am working hard to have enough new things for the Country Living Fair (which starts 2 weeks from today -eek!!!)
