Bowl make-over

Picked these up at The Christmas Tree Shop 2 weeks ago and I knew that I was going to repaint them. For $1.99, why not?? I painted one black with the red showing underneath and one mustard yellow with black showing through.

Here are the finished bowls, the black is not photographing well, there is red showing through, it's just not showing up in the pic. I also drilled a hole, added some material for a hanger and then hung them up. I did not paint the inside, but once they are hung up you don't see that anyway.

Primitive Blessings

Made this bag the other day and just added the snowmen, crow , candy cane and greenery to it. I did coffee stain the bag but it is not showing up in this picture, so it is darker then that.
Have a great day, I head back to work today after an 11 day vacation..boohoo

More stuff

Here are a few more items that I got at The Christmas Tree shop. There prices are so affordable there, I just wish they were closer to me, they are 1 hour away.

I got some of these bowls from there last year too, was surprised when they still had some. The sticker said $3.99, but they rang up $1.99. I will paint one black and one mustard yellow and then drill holes so I can hang them and you will never know there is a snowmen on the inside. I did the same thing with the ones I got last year, although I did not have to paint them as they were blue, green and red, so I kept them those colors. I have one from last year on my kitchen table filled with greenery and big jingle bells and you can't even see the santa inside.

They had a few different lights that were prim and dh picked me up some for Christmas (shh..it's a secret..lol) I got this one for me for now, although I'm still trying to find a place for it. This was $3.99, nice price.
I got a few other items but they are presents and I can't show them here as my Mom reads this blog..sorry Mom, you will have to wait.

Was out doing some Christmas shopping yesterday and we stopped at the Christmas Tree Shop and I got a few presents and a few things for myself. This was 75% off and only cost $1.25, it's so cute. Will have to show you the other stuff I got later as they are upstairs and I forgot to take pictures of them.
Have a great weekend everyone, I'm off to my Mom's to take her computer back, I had to work on it.

I Won another giveaway

I won this great giveaway from over at Birthday Cake for Breakfast
and I got them in the mail yesterday. They are made out of paper and they are so adorable. I also got 2 Yankee Candle tarts and they smell heavenly, one is pumpkin pie and the other is autumn leaf, I love that scent. Even though I put my Christmas stuff out yesterday I am going to leave these ladies out for awhile so I can enjoy them for a little while.
Vacation is going by so fast, it is Tuesday already, 5 days down..boohoo. Today I will work on my big tree and the outside decorations. Then I want to get some patterns cut out. Have a great day everyone.
