Those “Snowmen” and Other Projects

Remember these little snowmen from the end of my last post?

Some of them "stand"

Some of them "hang"
Yes, I made them myself from vintage glass ornaments and bits/pieces of vintage trims; BUT, they were totally inspired by Amy at Into Vintage. Amy is uber creative and has the most wonderful “eye” for vintage items. Go check out her blog….you won’t be sorry!

Equally inspired are these salt shaker snow people....

They were inspired by the uniquely creative imagination of Jane at Mamie Jane’s. Jane always amazes us with her trash-to-treasure creations. If you don’t already follow Jane, go do it now!

Thank you Amy and Jane for sharing your inspiration with us all!!!

My versions of the snowmen ornaments and salt shaker snow people are available in my booth along with a few small chalk paint projects that I didn’t get to post last week due to the internet outage. If you looked really really close, you might have spotted them in my Open House photos.

I “heart” this little green stool and the wooden tote/tool carrier....

An old mirror and a gorgeous carved frame got new life with a coat of creamy chalk paint.

Finally, I updated this wooden, footed bowl and I couldn’t resist embellishing just one more apothecary bottle.

Have you started your Holiday Projects?

I’m linking to the following parties:

Vintage Thingie Thursday at The Coloradolady
Thrifty Things Friday at The Thrifty Groove
Vintage Inspiration Friday at Common Ground
