New things from The Vanity Table1

A little canvas I painted for my Mom. It has Betty's Bakery wrote on it.

I hope all of you have the best holiday ever!! We had a great one. The older I get, them more I realize how much family really does mean to me. I have to admit, I do love getting gifts and giving gifts that really make the ones that I love happy. But seeing my family and spending time with them had to be the best part of it all.

During our time back home, my husband was offered a job making twice the money he was making here in NC. So, we're moving. I'm looking forward to being close to my family again. I'm also looking forward to working more on my ETSY shop. I've been kinda sad and "blah" for some time and since I found out that we're going home, I've been so much happier. That's really helped my outlook on things and I have more inspiration to work on my shop.

I love ETSY. The people are sooo sweet and helpful. If you haven't checked the site yet, be sure to take a look around when you have a chance. You won't be disappointed.

With that said, here's a few pics of some things I've been working on. I'd love to hear your input,tips,advice and ideas on my shop,crafts,etc.

Top pic: Chocolate cone Tussie Mussie with my favorite frilly pink festoons. Still trying to decide if I should add anything else(?). Bottom pic: another paitning I did for my Mom. The small canvas painting are so sweet to display anywhere.
Top pic: Papier Mache boxes I'm making for my shop. Bottom pic: Another view to show more detail. I'm making a few more~ these will be so cute w/ a faux candy magnet or heart inside.

A mask I'm making to list in my shop. These remind me of the masks that Marie Antoinette wore in the movie. This has vintage german glass gitter that I love. Still trying to decide how to decorate the handle. Maybe decoupage some vintage sheet music?

Of course, I have to add a photo of my English Bulldog, Matilda. Here she is wearing her reindeer antlers during Christmas. She actually loved wearing these! She loves to priss around. She would wear these outside and pose for the people going by. We had a few kids come back by to take pictures with sweet!!
