Time flies when you are busy!! Its been a month since I blogged last. I can't believe I skipped the entire month of October. To play catch up, I have been getting ready for a big show next weekend - making lots of jewelry and Christmas ornaments. Also I have been watching lots of football, both the KC Chiefs and high school. Matthew's team is number one in their district and they are going through the playoffs right now. I am hoping they make it to State again this year...........they deserve it!
This month I wanted to get a jump on Christmas. I usually start in November because I like to stretch it out as long as I can. I am already thinking about getting the tree up at home and think I am going to do it on Sunday while watching football. Not the Chiefs though, because they played tonight (AND LOST), instead watching the Atlanta Falcons play the Dallas Cowboys. Yes I am a true-blue "red" Chiefs fan, but they are so awful this year. Tony Gonzalez, tight end for the Falcons used to play for the Chiefs. KC has nothing but love for Tony G and he is supposed to retire at the end of the season. I want to watch him play in and win the Super Bowl because it would be the icing on the cupcake of what is an amazing career and he deserves it!
This month I am sticking to what I know best - white and vintage. I am still playing around with this space. Its not exactly how I want it, but I will figure it out one of these months.
This dresser is missing its bottom drawer. I saw on Pinterest a burlap ruffled tree skirt and thought maybe a little curtain would work on this dresser. I am not sure yet how I feel about it yet. Thoughts? I think it looks a little too heavy and may want something else instead, just haven't figured out what yet. I also made burlap tree skirts and I love how they turned out. I love them so much, I am going to make one for my tree at home too!
This pink Christmas tree has gotten a lot of looks already from some of the dealers at Bottoms Up. I used a tree that I purchased at Kohls a few years ago and added a big pink can-can as the "tree skirt" Its the color of pink cotton candy and I just LOVE it!!
I have lots of vintage mercury ornaments in my favorite colors: pink, blue, silver, green and gold. I also made a bunch of Christmas trees from old barn wood and house trim. Why go to a Christmas tree farm, when you can pick out the perfect tree here!
I hope you enjoyed the pictures of my booth for November. Now I have to figure out what I will do next month and then it will be back to the usual stuff starting January. Its funny, I have to think ahead and I am already thinking about Valentine's Day themed stuff and how I want to style my booth for Spring. Crazy huh?!?! It hasn't even snowed yet!! If you get the chance be sure to come and stop by Bottoms Up Antique Market in Kansas City this weekend!
