Birdhouses, Snowmen, Tramp Art, Hot Chocolate and more!!!!!

Our Craft Show was on Saturday. These are some of the birdhouses Sim made. I couldn't get pictures til after almost all of his birdhouses were sold!! He was the man of the hour!! LOL These are his church birdhouses! I didn't get a picture of it but his Bluebird church has a communion glass insulator on the side of it. You can kinda see it if you click on the picture. Too cute!! He sold out of almost everything! and he is hooked now!! This is true barn wood he got from a 1800's barn.

This is a sample of his Tramp Art. This one is mine but he sold quite a few of these too. Also he made wind chimes from old vintage kitchen utensils and sold out of those too. He calls them wind clankers!!

Here are a few of my vintage chenille bedspreads. These smell so good I line dried them in the sun.
They would be great on a bed or used for crafts.

This is one of my new items this year. I made Hot Chocolate from scratch. I used to make "Spice Mocha Mix" all the time and everyone loved it and have asked me to make more!! I love putting them in recycled jars and fixing them up cute. I had to keep a jar of this for myself!! I almost sold out of it!!

This was a popular item also. My pumpkins are made from a upcycled vintage white chenille bedspread. I have one listed in my Etsy shoppe along with the two spoons I had left. I loved making these spoons!!

Some of my prim dress ornies!!

Here are some of my Snow People I made from my own designs. The two dolls are listed on my Etsy and the other ones I am listing soon. I love love making these kind of things!!

I sold Sweet Annie bunches and these were the stems I had left and I thought they looked so cute. So I made them in to some Prim Neeedfuls!! I used Christmas colors as I thought they might look sweet on the mantel or sitting on a shelf or table with other Prims. Oh the "Sweet Annie" smells so good. It helps with spiders they don't like it!! I also have a few of my small dried sunflowers.
I love doing these shows and have a few more coming up. I praise God for giving me the gift to create. And also the gift of a husband who is evenly yoked with me. Thanks for looking at my goodies!!
XO Fran.
