"Twas Nineteen Days Before Christmas"

Christmas is upon us! Are you ready? I hope to be among those of you who are already done with shopping. Every year I say "I'm going to shop early", and it never happens. I'm one of those late shoppers. But I do like shopping online. No standing on lines or wasting gas. There are so many pretty boutiques and so many great things for sale. I have a few things to share today.

Last week, my sweet mom was about to throw away a vintage Christmas doll because it was in bad shape. I quickly yelled out "NO!", I knew that the moment I saw it that I could make her new again.

Here is a before pic of the doll:

 As you can see this poor dolly needed a bath. Her hair needed to be washed and combed. Her outfit had a few little holes and her wings were falling apart. Poor thing. I tried my best to fix her up. 
Here she is:

I made a whole new dress for her. It's difficult to appreciate the doll in a photo, but I can assure you that she looks so much better now. Her dress is  made with faux red vintage velvet fabric. She has a pretty sash on her waist and her neck has pretty crocheted lace. Her hair was washed and now smells good. :)

I also added faux pearls to the top of her head and her wings were made with white lace. My mother loved her new look and was so happy I saved her. I will treasure her forever.

Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh, everywhere we go, ornaments all the way. Lol, sorry, best I can do for rhyming ;)
And speaking of ornaments here are  a few that I have listed for sale.


Hope you like them, if you're interested in any of them, please visit my shop.

And last but not least I have a new veggie pillow to show you. It's a red hot chili pepper. I've had several requests for one so here it is!

I have one available now, but will be adding more in case someone out there is interested.
