Dress Form Ornaments

A few days ago~
I shared these paper mache dress form ornaments
 as I began to create with them.
 
Aren't they cute?
I found them over the summer as I was checking out
from a shopping trip at Michael's.
 
They only had a few left.
Wish I could have gotten more.
Here's how they turned out.





These will be in my etsy shop, in sets of two.

 
Wait!!
Something is missing!!
 
Oh yes,
The glitter~~~~~lots of glitter!
 

 
That's better.

 
Beside these little cuties,
Here are a few more goodies going to the shop.
 
Signs to Ice Skates!
 
 
Large framed wood sign

 
Metal sign with my red velvet Christmas Roses and
I stenciled Noel and the fleur di lis.

 
This is an old roof slate
hand painted with a French graphic
and again my red roses.

 
This pair of Ice Skates was painted with Old White
Chalk Paint and a winter scene on each.
I added white ribbon laces
and boa trim around the ankle.
And, of course lots of glitter~



 
Thank you for stopping by.
Hope you have a great weekend.
 
See you soon.
 
Celestina Marie
p.s. all the tubs of Christmas treasures you saw in my last post,
they are empty!!
 
from the Craft Room.

Wow, what a stunning group these are! I love the sweet ornaments, can you imagine a tree all done up with these! The signs are gorgeous and of course the ice skates are stunning! They remind me of your love and admiration for your Grandfather the shoe maker. I bet when you were young you painted everything in sight, family pets were probably not safe from your painting, ha ha, just kidding. ~Diane

Hi Celeste!
LOVE LOVE LOVE your Christmas wares! The dress form ornaments are too sweet and your signs are absolutely lovely! You do a fabulous job on ice skates... the scenes are always so calming and have a feeling of nostalgia. Your creations are always incredible Celeste!
I can hardly wait to see what you've done with the items from the tubs. Your Christmas decorating is so classy yet inviting. We will be putting our trees up Thanksgiving weekend and leaving the decorating of them for the "Sweetie Girls" that will be with us the following weekend. We'll bake some cookies and make some memories.
Things are the same here so we just go with the flow and do what we can.

Sending lots of love from Golden Pond!! Edie Marie
