New "Old" Things

I was able to get a few small craft items made this week, including one that I was very excited about! I got the "how to" instructions from Char on The pickeled pepper patch. She is one awesome lady and always got great things to share......well she shared the tutorial on making the grungy know the silicone kind! I just love them, and I have lots of lights in my house, so I use them up kind of quick, and you know that can get quite costly if you are buying lots of those grungy silicone lights! Well, how great is that when you can make them on your own? I made some on Friday night and I am just thrilled with them....I added an awesome scent to mine and let me tell ya.....they smell DELICIOUS! They are so cool! Here they are:

Now, another fine craft I have been working on, is making more of my primitive beeswax Santas, pinecones with acorns, and some holly stars. I just love making these things....I am addicted to wax! LOL!!! I just love how they turn out and I also add a great Christmasy scent to them and they smell so good! I plan on giving some as gifts for Christmas, but I hope to sell LOT$ of them too. Let me know if anyone is interested.....

Please excuse these pictures....don't do the pieces justice!

Well, I was able to venture out this weekend at one of my favorite antique stores yesterday....I should have taken a picture of the outside of the building, but didn't, and they don't allow cameras inside. I just love this antique store and I try to visit kind of often because things really change over there....its not like you see the same pieces all of the time. They do a great business and things are always moving, so if you see something that you got to have, it is best to get it then and there. I have a story to add to that little note next time I blog....remind me to tell you about my harvest table! ;)
Anyway, so I found a cute box that was once for a store. It has a lift up lid that probably held their papers/receipts and their money! It came from an old store/shop. I loved it the moment I saw it....and I said that is what I must use someday when I open up my own store/shop.....what do you think?

We also stopped at another shop nearby where I picked up this great brown primitive german twig tree with a few sets of orange lights for very cheap money. It is about 5 1/2 feet tall....I couldn't believe it when I saw know how much money they can be?! Well, guess where my new grungy lights are going???? You guessed it...on that new twig tree! :)

Well, that is about it for today...I hope you all are well and have a great week!
