Little Things I Made

Hello my friends!!
Just a quick post to share some of my little crafty items I made today.  I lifted the pattern for the bunny from an internet site.  If it is yours, let me know I will give you credit.
The boxes I just altered.

Hello! My blogging friends.
Just got into the mood to do some spring decorating. Just taking it slow ,with bits and corners at at time.
Also sharing some of things I have been creating.  Hope you enjoy.

I did not sleep last night, so I made this wreath. I finished it about 4:00 am. It has some touches of Easter with the glittered little eggs tucked in here and there.

I changed out everything on this entry table.  I had an ecru lace table runner on, but wanted to lighten it up with the white lace. I changed out a chocolate brown bowl for a crystal bowl. This is where we keep our keys and hubbies eppie pen.  I made the little box and the white bird I have had for years. I have also had this lamp for years. It was a 5.00 Goodwill find.

I made the table runner. I have a Dream Creator 5001 embroidery machine. I do not know whose design I used, if you recognize it as yours please let me know. I will give you complete credit for the design.   The bunny is  a Goodwill find, I made the egg basket froma peat pot and dollar  tree eggs. The candle was in my stash. The candle holder was a yard sale find.

I am just sharing some of the small projects I created.

Mantle decorations and lamp redo.

I changed out some of the decorations on my mantle. I use to have the hydrangeas in the center of the mantle.  I found the plate that is now there at Big Lots. I also found the candle container there as well. I thought both went well with the color of the hydrangeas. I just added some crystal  to complete the look.

I found this lamp at Good Will. It was a beat up gold color. I just took out my trusty black spray paint and gave it a make over. I added some bling around the glass table top. I used a shade I had on another lamp I had stored in my storage area.

Clearly this vignette needs some work. However , it will have to do for now This on a window wall in my kitchen. I put box wood (fake) in chicken wire basket on the little table. I love this shelf that I have hanging but I do not know what to do with it. For now I put some blue mason jar type thingies on the bottom shelf. and the smaller to shelf, I put some burlap wrapped bottles. If anyone has any better ideas or any ideas at all how to decorate this shelf, I am all Blogging  Ears.

K-Mart Haul and a Vignette

I went to K-Mart yesterday to purchase some brackets. I did not find the brackets I needed, but came across a awesome after Christmas Sale.
I purchased all the stuff above for 25.00  and some change.
My hubbie will make good of the sausage and cheese. I kept one of the little cutting boards and will give one to my daughter and son.
The Christmas buckets I will take the contents out of them and make my own gift baskets next Christmas. I will use the hot cocoa and mints and cookies.
There were two tea gift  packs. One I took apart and will use the contents. The other I will give to my daughter.
I will not wear the jewelry but will use it in my craft projects. Don't you love when you can find a really good bargain!

I changed the top of my book case in the dining room. I added some pink elements. I do not use a lot of pink in my decorating, but decided to add some touches in the dining room.
The large fan was purchased at Habitat for Humanity Resale Store. I added some embellishments and made a stand. I used it as a back drop for my vignette.
The lamp is a Kirkland find  a few years back. The candle came from Goodwill. I do not remember where I got the frosted fruit, but have had it for several years. The book was a Marshall's purchase. The table runner was a gift from my step daughter.

Thrift Store Haul

I was really pleased to be able to take these roses home with me. It is meant for a Christmas decoration. I will save them for next year. They will fit right in with my winter wonderland theme. I love that they have glitter on the roses and a frosted look to the fruit and leaves.

I found these for 99 cents. I thought they look like wintery blues. Also they have some silver pics in them , I will use them for crafting  purposes.

These flowers remind me of paper whites. They also have some silver pics in them. They were 99 cents as well.

I love these three Christmas Angels.  I will probably glue them to a canvas and display them in that matter. I will probably do something with the color. The gold  just does not do it for me............However I could leave them gold because I did decorate with gold in my kitchen this year.

I thought this little lace box was cute. I really do not like the orange flower , so I will change that out to a more neutral cream.

I thought this little candle holder was cute. It was a 1.91.  I will show you how I use it in a vignette.

I love this lace table topper. Anytime I can find lace regardless if it is vintage or not. It comes home with me. If I do not  use it for its intended purpose, I will utilize it to make something.

If I could wear this I totally would.   However I can not get one arm in the sleeve.  It is a size small. I bought it to cut up and use the individual  doily pieces in my crafting.
