Final Christmas Creations

I took some final pictures yesterday before everything got packed away for this weekend's show.  It felt good to just decide that I'm done! Although I do still need to decide what non-Christmas regular art I'm bringing - since I have limited room I'm going to have to pick and choose.
This is a box I just love that ornaments came in, and I decided to turn it into a little shadow box with a scene in it.

Little stockings from an old quilt, with little vintage decorations- they're only 3-4" tall.

A couple more little hand strainer Christmas scenes.

Trees on little tiny pastry molds, these also are only about 3" tall.

I just love this doll, not something I'm normally drawn to, but I saw her in an antique store, in a stained pathetic little nightie that was safety pinned on her to make it fit, and I just couldn't resist her.  Her little old face is so worn, and I can just imagine how much she was loved and played with.  So I made her this little dress, and attached a fancy old button, and even made her a party hat. She's feeling like a new girl!


  1. Everything looks wonderful. Can't wait for the show.

  2. Oh, oh, oh! LOVE LOVE LOVE! The strainers, the new shadow box and that doll! I so love her - good luck on the show - it can't help but be a big success.
    AND thank you for your sweet comment - nothing like taking my sweet time . . .xoxo

  3. Okay, I LOVE those strainer scenes! And I have saved some little boxes that have windows in them, and I've never done anything with them. You inspire me!

    Congrats on being finished. That's a real thing!

  4. Now you have been one busy busy girl! I have somehow managed to miss gazillions of your posts, so I've got some catching up to do. I'm going to start working my way back.

    I'm LOVING all your Chistmassy goodies - those darling strainers, the tress, that bag and that sweet doll, she is ready to PAR-TAY!!

    Wishing you the best of luck with getting the 'right' customers through the doors - those with an eye for an original artwork.


  5. Oh Terri everything you have shared for this show has just been totally adorable and desirable!

    Good luck with it all and well done for being ready days before dead line. Impressed!
