Christmas Explosion!

When my sister-in-law walked into the house she said, "It looks like Christmas EXPLODED on your dining table!" It had.

But out of the chaos came shimmering order!

I've been working on using up all my vintage planters, ornaments and Christmas figurines from Lefton, Relpo, Enesco, etc. Above is a cute little woodland brownie.

Here are "baby" and Santa.

Baby's First Christmas, all tangled in mercury bead garland!

This is the sweetest flowergirl! Kinda like a pink Eliza Doolittle.

I bought her at a rummage sale then proceeded to drop her on the floor as soon as I got her home! :( Fortunately I was able to glue her backside together and use her in this cute Christmas tree collage. Some of her flowers got chipped so I just gave her a whole new bunch of vintage millinery posies.

Here is a cute "Spaghetti" Santa!
I am still working on a few more trees. I'm hoping to get them on ebay before Christmas but time is so short!

Here are some tags I made from vintage Christmas wrap. I just cut out the designs, glued them to cardstock with gluestick, scalloped the edges with scissors and sprinkled with glitter. A hole-punch makes for easy tie-ons.

I hope you are finding all the time you need for your own Christmas Crafting! It's hard to do, isn't it?! I hope to have more to show you before Christmas. Sorry I've been gone so long but sometimes blogging has to take a backseat to LIFE! ;) Thanks for sticking with me!
