I love jewelry, I love beads and am totally a junkie when it comes to getting old jewelry pieces and turning them into something else. I had these old pieces that had tons of jump rings, and other figure 8 pieces. Add a few gold beads, a black drop, and other miscellaneous things and in just a few minutes I had a new necklace.
I know it's not the time that most people are thinking of gingerbread houses and cookie exchanges or excessive baking, but I finally got my little kitchen scene done.. I'm looking for a great picture of a snowy outside and I will put in a faux window, but I can't find just the right one. This little box is one I made and covered it with a 8x10 inch frame. I feel very clever when I can do something like that. Not to the stage that I could build a house, but little rooms are fun and so much cheaper than buying kits.
The back cabinet is the NAME Day Hutch filled (rather haphazardly) with stuff. You know the kind of hutch that grandma would have had. Grandma has made several gingerbread houses, a tray of gingerbread men, cookies and has lots of candy to decorate more houses. She also has several bowls ready to mix up more cookies. You can almost smell the aroma of the little corner of the kitchen. Enjoy.
