Last night I went with one of my girlfriends to her church's ladies night and we made shadow boxes! So much fun! we each took a shadow box of some kind and the items that we wanted to go in it. I decided to make mine with a Christmas theme. I had bought two little pixies at a yard sale this weekend and wanted to do something fun with them and this was just the opportunity!
Although this is blurry, I love how mine turned out! I used scrapbook paper to line the back and then used a vintage Christmas card over that.
I hung the satin balls with red ribbon and added my pixies, a mini Christmas tree and some tinsel and it was done!
I glued this adorable spun head angel on the front.
From a couple of the the mini Whitman's sampler boxes I made a couple more using Elizabeth at Creative Breathings technique.
These are so much fun to make!
Oh and let me tell you about the best finds in the world at that yard sale where I got the pixies!
I also got this Hummel figurine
I have no idea what the significance of a white carrot and a beer are! LOL!! Seems like an odd combination! But this is a music box and plays a lovely German melody.
I loved this tea pitcher! The little farmer and his wife and the gold toned horse and buggies that go all the way around the pitcher.
But this was my best find!
A 1970 Singer Touch and Sew! It works like a charm! I was wanting a sewing machine to have downstairs and this fit the bill! And you aren't even going to believe what I paid for it!!!
Yep!!!!! $15.00!!!!! Came with all it's different discs to make different stitches. The original manual, needles, all the feet, everything it originally came with. The lady having the sale said she got it in high school when she took home economics and then never really used it. I was more than happy to bring it home!
And just because I think he's cute... here's a picture of Yngwie with his latest catch!
Hope everyone has a great day!
