Shadow Boxes and Yard Sales

Good Tuesday Morning!  45 degrees this morning, I wanted to stay snuggled in my warm bed this morning.  But alas, my feet hit the floor at 5:30 ready to start the day!

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!

Early American....

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!

Shadow boxes are so much fun to make...And yours are too cute! You have definitely inspired me today. I am having a blast working on the ones for Elizabeth's swap...three more to go. I have so many ideas right now that it's hard to focus...right! Like I'm going to complain about ideas!! =D

Linda, I adore Early American furniture. Your sewing desk is fabulous. I bet you are so happy with your shadowbox. It's just wonderful with it's little elves. There is always something vintage and good to be found here! Have a great weekend. Elizabeth

That sounds like such a fun thing to do, getting together with a bunch of gals and making shadowboxes. I'm crazy about how yours turned out!
WOW, that was one great catch Yngwie made!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love little Christmas pixies and have a small collection of them. I love what you've made with the shadow boxes! How adorable! Hugs! PS The Anthropolgie in Mrytle Beach was in a new shopping center called Market Commons. They had some wonderful shops but it was a little hard to find. We had to ask directions! Hugs!

Chenille Cottage said...

Oh, My goodness! Just look at the price on that sewing machine and cabinet! Wouldn't it look pretty painted up in a fresh new color?
I hope you have a wonderful week, my friend,
Blessings,
Carolynn xoxo
