Projects, Purchases & my Pooch

Last Sunday, Elf Patty and I cleaned my workroom. Gotta love Elf Patty. Don't know what I would do without her. She keeps me going when I'm dead-dog tired (sorry Zoe, nothing implied). Anyway, we put away, dumped, cleaned-up, organized and even vacuumed. My poor workroom floor ... what can I say ... it's a work room floor. My vacuum has an idiot light that tells you when the floor is clean (green) and dirty (red). Let's just say the red light never goes off in my workroom. Way too much glitter and paper bits imbedded into it. Some day it will go, but not anytime soon. It works for now. After getting things in order, I couldn't resist decorating a little for Christmas. A tree here and there, a few shiny ornaments and I added a little holiday touch to my mannequin, "Sister". She is now officially dressed for the Holidays!
I began working on projects to sell at Monticello next month. I love sweet little teddy bears.
My sweet friend, Betty (Sammy Girl) found these wonderful clock cases and I was lucky enough to purchase a few from her! What a wonderful find and you know - they will become homes for little assemblages. Stayed tuned!

There will be a new purpose for these sweet mugs, creamers and sugar bowls.

Visited one of my favorite flea markets last Sunday and found this doll head. Don't know why, but I had to have her. I "dolled her up" a bit and will enjoy her for a few weeks before she finds a new home. I may make some fluttery, feather wings for her.

So, while all of this is going on, guess what "you- know- who" is doing ... napping. Something I won't be doing until about December 26th when I join my hubby and son on a plane bound for
Kansas City!
More on that later! M.

Beautiful things! No slowing down for you! Can't I please kidnap (oops I meant invite) elf Patty over here to help me with my workroom?? I'll give her whatever she wants (money, first born son (he's 33 now, so he'll have to consent).... anything)?

Keep making things beautiful!

Ah, it is so nice to have someone help with such large tasks. Makes it so much more fun and less like work. I love the way you dressed your mannequin for the holidays. She looks so elegant! Your pooch looks plum tuckered out after watching you work all day. Shwew...tough job, but somebody has to do it. Thanks for visiting my blog today.
Monticello? I went there one vacation and we loved it. Lots of great antique stores and wineries nearby. Have fun!!
