It's The Most Busiset Time of The Year


This past week has been full of Christmas hustle-bustle! I have been shopping, making gifts, wrapping, pricing items for All That Jazz Vintage, and I already had one of my three Christmases this year. Not to mention I had been working full-time! I'm on vacation now. It has been a whirlwind but the holidays always are, aren't they?

I finally have some photos of the new barn wood frames arriving at the shop this week!

I gave this one a shabby coating of white paint~
don't you love the cut-out models from my Eddie Bauer catalog?? 


I didn't mess with this large frame, I love it's perfect patina!


A smaller version of the above frame did get a bit of white paint~


I am excited to hear that Farmboy has been busy making more frames (as well as mirrors) from this marvelous rustic barn wood. They will be arriving  in the shop the first of the year!

I have a few other treasures to take to the shop, too.

~cozy leather and sheepskin Bearpaw boots (these have only been worn a few times!) a silver tray, a needlepoint pillow and a rusty watering can~


~life is beautiful in french burlap sign, a wooden rooster, berry candle garlands~


Tomorrow I will running around trying to finish my shopping.....just a few more gifts to pick up and wrap!! 

I work best under pressure.

wishing you the merriest week,

~michelle~
