A few new thrifted finds

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 017A couple of vintage cherub candle holders.

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 019Topped the gold one with a gold (spray painted) bottle brush tree.

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 024Decided to not ‘permanently alter the ivory colored one since it’s getting late in the season; AND I figure I can use it in a Valentine display in just a few weeks.

12.2.12 DT finds etsy 045These aqua Christmas balls I found at the thrift store are plastic, but the color was so pretty I had to get them.  This is my very FAVORITE kind of cloche to find.   Probably only find one a year, and they always sell quickly.

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 022I topped the pretty aqua plastic Christmas balls with a bundle of smaller balls and some pretty ribbon.

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 023One of them perched perfectly atop the ivory cherub votive holder.

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 034A vintage vase with angels on it.  This would have worked with a large bottle brush tree in it, but I’ve run out of those.

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 035So I put a handful of my ‘home-made’ paper shred inside . .

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 036And the other pretty aqua Christmas ball.

12.2.12 DT finds etsy 040Got these Christmas village buildings at the thrift store too.  Will be spray painting them white as soon as we get a dry enough day to do so.  Will most likely end up saving these for  NEXT year though.    Although I’m also known for making Christmas stuff right up til Christmas and just putting aside for next year so I have some stuff ‘ready to go’ early in the season.

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 085Or I might do some of the houses up like this.  This little house came from Dollar Tree; was already ivory.  I wanted to paint it white before I glittered it, but it was too wet out.  These little houses had a battery LED light in them, which I removed; then glittered the house and box top.   I’m kind of getting ‘idea overload’ from Pinterest!  Saw some of these houses painted white and on a cake pedestal with fake snow all about.

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 063Ready to sell in my booth at Stars Antiques.

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 086

How perfect is that color?!?!

I hope your holiday preparations are joyous!  Pretty crazy things going on right now here in Oregon; with a shooting at one of the biggest shopping malls yesterday.  Last year it was the guy who was going to set off a bomb at the big Christmas tree lighting in downtown Portland, the day after Thanksgiving!  sheesh.
