A Little Holiday Decor and Some Custom Mosaics

I am so excited about my little silver holiday vignette!! I've posted pics of my ever-growing tarnished silver collection before, but here, I've combined it with some special touches.

These wonderful little creatures were made by an amazing artist I found on a blog and who has her work for sale on Etsy and on her website. Her name is Crystal and you can find her at http://www.vintagebycrystal.com/.

We have here a little cat girl, a bat girl, and a snow fairie. I was going to take them to work to enjoy on my desk, but I think I'll have to buy more so these can stay at home in this display where they fit so well.

My ever-growing tarnished silver collection.

The tinsel trees are from where else? The Curious Sofa. I bought one for a friend and had to go back to buy mine!!


I made a custom mirror for a girl at work that says "Let it Snow" with a snowman of polymer clay, white, silver, snowflakes, and a touch of lavender.

This old bottle added just the right touch.

Here's the snowman and at the top you can see the last of the vintage swizzle sticks that Becky brought down from Wisconsin a couple of week ago. Yeah!!!

And here's a full shot of the mirror. I have such fun making custom items, especially for the kind of people that just tell me what they like and let me go with little direction. I think this is going in a hutch behind a display of other fun Christmas goodies. All the Austrian crystals and white will reflect in a festive way.

This funky switch plate is custom for my friend Barbara in DC who is giving it to her son and daughter-in-law. They have two small children whom I hope will enjoy the vintage 1950's plastic farm animals and bright colors. Once again, she just told me she wanted a switch plate and the rest was up to me!

I love the snowman mirror. I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed looking at all your pieces. I love that you're repurposing things that most people would throw away. After seeing this it breaks my heart that I've thrown out broken vases of my grandmother's. But I never will again. :)
