I made a Valentine Vignette with some things I found around my over-flowing stashes'! I love to create tiny tabletop displays now as I have no room like I used to when my daughter was small, Oh, I used to decorate the whole house especially using her Valentine Day cards from her grandparents as hanging mobiles and two of the items I found were just like them. These are now in my frstyfrolk Etsy shop!
I even used an old Vintage Rusty Crusty Bed Spring Coil for a vase;
I had added some silk flowers for the vignette that I don't use anymore as I like things fresh from the forest now more and more. I have a large stash of silks that I used to get from my shopping sprees in Alabama. I have them in my attic displays and craft stash and will one day use some of them but never all of them. I have so many here and there in hanging baskets, galvanized vases and tubs, jars, bins, and in my warehouse. I also took a large wood holder for my consignment shop to hold them.. It looks kind of empty, I need to add more! But, I am going to take out the wood holder which I had full in my attic and bring in a new shelf with slates to hold some linens. I will replace it with a galvanized vase.
I also got a square cubicle space for Books and Magazines, etc right next to my space!
I have lots of materials to fill it up with and during these winter months, a good time to sit down and read a good book or browse vintage and newer magazines!
Matter of fact, it is starting to snow here and sticking!
I have been working as "frstyfrolk" trying to get more items listed in my Vintage Etsy shop and having so many wonderful conversations with new made friends!
I am putting my fabrics, ribbons, and sewing notions in here and at my Consignment shop at Victoria's in Blairesville, GA. It is about 20 miles from my house.
I am also making new terrariums for Valentine's Day, using the new pink sand I found!
Of course, I am still in the garden sprucing it up, this time the left vertical wall! I have been fighting it for 3 years now so I decided to ad what naturally grows there around my neighborhood and surrounding areas, juts not on MY wall! I am adding lots of sheet moss and cushion moss, along with the Reindeer Moss to help hold it all in place.
I was playing around with my reindeer moss and tried dying it as I have seen.
It turned out pretty good but, very time consuming.
I adore my new purple sled I got to use when collecting moss, it makes it so much easier.
I wish I know of a friend with a garden needing to divide but not happens! So, I will keep looking!
I also found my best find ever at the Recycle Trash Site a couple of weeks ago. Get this!
At first, I saw the baskets and I ask if I could have them, he said certainly and then when he left I found the tables they must have gone with just left on the side of the trash area. Why not re-cycled to a charity thrift ?, I don't know but I am much appreciative, (Grins)
Than ks for reading, My husband just told me I have been on Etsy (7) Seven years now, he is reading a n email. I better go have a giveaway!
Let me think!
