Almost Showtime, My Messy Kitchen!

These are 18-24" trees in rusty cans and buckets, all have lights on them. On one I put a string of those tiny seed lights, wish I had a lot more of those strings as they are perfect for these trees. A few of these I dusted with cinnamon and spray adhesive. Two of the trees have the tiny mice on them.

Thrift Store Bear find, washed him in washer, grunged him up, made him a Hat, and got him Holiday ready on this sleigh, attached a tree with lights to the sleigh and a few things in his hands. He is a pretty big guy.Another Thrift Store Bear, he is a little smaller on a smaller sled with lighted tree. You can see all the Cats I have made up sitting behind him, think there are about 6 of them. My table is full of fabric and scraps and bodies needing finishing! The kitchen is a disaster.

These are the 7 Santa's I intended to put the pattern up but I am not going to be able to post any of the new patterns until after the show this weekend, I am just so pressed for time. Sandy will be here Friday and Celena will be here Thursday evening.


  1. everything looks great! I know about being busy! I'm down to 2 days before time to set up

  2. It is here upon us again..the time just flew my for the bear on the sled and santas. See you this weekend.

  3. You've been a busy little elf Carmen:) I LOVE those trees!!!! always love seeing pics of your house and decor too, prim perfection! Have a wonderful day:)

  4. I have a sad (cute) little teddy bear I bought at an estate sale this summer - I wonder if he'd survive a trip through the washing machine...... Your trees are wonderful!
