Christmas Movie Decorating

It's almost Christmas and I am FINALLY starting to feel like myself again!  WooHoo!!  Unfortunately, I am waaaay behind on my decorating.  I've managed to get a few things out and I thought I'd share some things from some of our favorite Christmas movies.  Let's get started......
We had more snow last week, so I bundled myself up and went out to take a few pics.  Do you see the movie reference in this one?  And, yes, those are snowflakes flying!!

My son gave me this a few years ago.  It is from one of my all-time favorite shows.

Here's a hint.......imagine it filled with eggnog!

This one might be a stretch, but I realized that I hadn't shared any view of the kitchen either.  As you can see, the main color is red.  The scale was found at an estate sale a few years ago and the snowman hat was from a gift.

So, how did you do?  Did you get all 4 movie references?  I'm so glad you stopped by the cottage.  Stop by again later this week.  I have an amazing recipe to share and I'll list the movie references too!

  1. I absolutely love, love, love the vintage kitchen scale as I love all things vintage and have several antique furniture pieces in my home. Thank you for sharing with all of us at the Oh My Heartsie Girls Wordless Wednesday Link Party.

    Wishing you a wonderful week!

How To Decoupage Dresser Drawers - With Napkins!

Welcome back!  Last week you saw a garage sale dresser transformed with paint and decoupaged napkins.  If you missed it, click here

Today I have a little tutorial showing how it was done.  Let's get started, shall we?

The drawers were sanded down to bare wood and the edges were painted black to match the rest of the dresser.  The napkins were found at the Dollar Store.
Notice they are 2-ply napkins?  You only need one, so separate those layers! Iron the one-layer.  It helps when you are ready to lay it down on the wet decoupage medium.   Since the napkins were not wide enough to cover the entire drawer, I was going to have to piece them together.  These napkins also had a very definite pattern that was going to need matching, so it was time for some measuring.  I found the middle of the drawer and matched it to the middle of the napkin.  Then I marked the edges of the napkin on the edge of the drawer with chalk.  See the white (chalk) dot? There are actually two of them as guides for …

Frankenstein & His Bride

Halloween will be here in a couple of days and if you need a quick craft - I've got you covered!

This was another of my "Spur Of The Moment" ideas.  I was working on a Christmas craft (that I'll share soon) using paint stirrers. This part of the paint stirrer was actually 'scrap' from the other project, but I hated to waste it, so, I grabbed some paint and got to work.  This shade of green wasn't my first choice, but, since this project was 'spur of the moment', and I wasn't running to the store, I couldn't be picky.   After the green paint dried, I painted some black hair and glued on two eyes.  With a sharpie, a nose, mouth, and some scars were added.  On the 'Bride' some red lips and white streaks completed her look.  
So what do you do with them?  Add a magnet to the back and you have a new refrigerator magnet, or, glue a pin on the back and wear it on your jacket.   This would also be a great project to do with kids, don't you …

Candy Corn

October seems to be flying by and before you know it, Halloween will be here.  I had some wood scraps sitting in a pile, so I decided to make some candy corn.  

I made myself a pattern in two different sizes.  

This was a "spur of the moment" project, and it fought me every inch of the way.  For starters, while I was cutting one of them out, it split right down the middle.  Thanks to a little super glue, you can't tell which one, can you?
Next, I started painting and didn't use a base coat/primer.  Needless to say, I needed many coats of paint.  Yes, it was my own fault!
 Finally, I got the paint to cover and I used a sponge to transition one color to the next.  Out came the sander and the candy corn was distressed!
Time for sealer.  While I was spraying, I ended up with a drip. Because I'm so patient - NOT - I decided to fine-sand it off and re-spray it.  Well, I made a mess of it!  Not to be out-smarted by a piece of wood, I drilled a little hole:
Pretty, huh? I grabb…
