Just a Few More Creations

Every year, when I finish creating for the season, it seems just a few more little projects come to mind and I have to get busy.

  Ornaments and cards for friends are just a few ideas.
Glittered cards to wish a Merry Christmas, graphics from The Graphics Fairy~
This card below and others was designed using my hand painted roses around the vintage Christmas Polka graphic courtesy of The Graphics Fairy
For a quick little Silent Night Pillow. All I did for this project was to turnover a pillow I already use on the bed. Copied on fabric transfer fabric the graphic. Ironed it on the coordinating fabric that has a raw distressed edge and chosen to go with the room. Ran a line of glitter glue around the graphic and then used a running stitch to apply it to the pillow using vintage candlewick thread. The glittery snowflake pin was added last and that's it. After the holiday, just pull out the stitch, store away and it will be ready to use again next year.
And, I changed out my coat rack cone with winter greens, white berries, gold and silver and of course a few rolls of sheet music. The vintage hat is a treasure I found about 10 years ago and just love displaying it for winter.
Thank you for stopping by today. It is always a joy to have you visit and read your kind comments. I'm sure I'll share a few more projects along the way as I prepare for my Holiday Home Tour coming soon. Christmas Blessings, Celestina Marie

Very pretty, Celeste! I love the ornaments and your cards. The card with the little girl is one of my favorite images, too, and I printed some out to use as gift tags. The glitter you added to her is the perfect touch!

Hi dear Celeste,
Oh soooooo pretty again! I love all the ornaments and the angel cards too. I especially love that star ornament with the angel ornament/blessing. So special to get such from a friend for Christmas! You really put so much love into each and every little thing. I love that! For me that's the truest of true Christmas spirits and what it's all about! You certainly know how to put detail into each and every corner of your home. Even there's a Christmas pillow, LOL. I hope you will have many silent nights ahead of you. Enjoy the brightness of this season!
Big hugs,
Ingeborg

What treasures you have created, Celeste! I am amazed each time you share the meticulous work of your hands. You have a special gift!

Your black and cream toile bedroom is so lovely...so romantic...so elegant. I am a lover of all things toile! Could it be that many of my family trace back to France? I guess it's in my genes.
Blessings, my sweet friend.
