2012-12-29_08-45-35_227Well now that I have no swaps to do….not sure what I will be posting….Here is what I replaced my Hot Chocolate Bar (that I set up at Christmas) with. Some of the vintage that I have been collecting. An old fashion nut grinder, my mom had one just like this but some other family member has it. This is one that I got from a friends yard sale. 50 cents! The receipt card is the very first thing I painted back in the early 80’s very primitive. My sister and I spent a day together painting these. A vintage shredded wheat tin, along with a vintage shredded wheat tin receipt card box. and the Better Homes cook book from the 60’s. Love all this red vintage.
005And here is an updated pic of Norma E. My vintage mannequin named in memory of my mother Norma Elizabeth. She is sporting lot of new stick pins and charms. Some received in swaps and some I made. The gold name NORMA was my mom’s I still have to find an E for her. Some how I have to fit this into my RV.
2013-01-06_13-40-35_555Here are a few Valentine altered art that I packaged up…not sure what I will do with it…maybe a give away. I need to find a new swap blog…I miss doing the swaps.

2012-12-29_09-40-24_87Hope you all will have a great year…I am planning on it…It will be a better year! This is a Christmas gift my dd gave to me. A beach Merry Christmas wreath. The Santa face she painted on a shell and then glued it and other shells and driftwood on a wreath from. These and other things she now sculpts the cheeks and nose on the item and then she paints the face. This one is not sculpted. I am going to make a beach welcome wreath for MySweetDream soon. Shells and driftwood.
2012-12-31_13-25-05_495And this is the E atc card swap I received from my partner Sally at http://blogtobless.blogspot.com/ It seems like we both had the same idea with the letter E = Elf. I used the main man elf Santa himself and she used this cute little helper elf. I love it Sally thanks so much.
2012-12-31_13-24-53_141And here are a few things that she sent along for the ride. Neat things to use in my projects.
Have a great New Year day and stay safe. thanks for looking and come back soon
