I've been busy at the craft stores.  I have a lot of work to do for the holidays.
I found a formula for rusty bells and will be getting to this very soon.  I love using tiny rusty bells in my holiday creations.

I have a love affair with burlap so I purchased yet another roll from JoAnn's Fabrics.  I will be making more sacks for special gifts.
Do you see this green trim?  Well I found this in the 80% off Halloween bin, it ended up costing 1.29, yup $1.29.  Well, while browsing around more in the store I came upon a rack with this exact trim only with a holiday/Christmas packaging and it was $6.99, same exact thing, go figure that!
I determined I love the color and can use it in some holiday art, don't you think so?

I needed all of these items, too.
I have several swap projects to create, a banner, a tea cup, a secret santa box to prepare and two cake boxes to make.

 I needed these items, too.
I am going to make several nest from brown hay material, spray with adhesive and glitter with this red, gold and white. 
I think this will be beautiful on my tree...

I found this pearl necklace at a rummage sale.
The pearls are all ready to go.

What is on your work bench?
Thanks for stopping by.

You are a busy lady! I love that green color too. I just bought a small decorative pillow in that color...had been looking for a long time. With all the pretty things you showed us, I know your projects are going to be beautiful! :)

My bells have been in salt and vinegar for a week now. This has never failed before and usually no longer than overnight has produced what I wanted. How have your bells done? I'm wondering if there is some special coating on mine.
