Filling My Shops With Holiday Cheer

Hello friends...hope you are all enjoying the week.
Yesterday I spent some time 
glittering my two Fox Den booths up for the upcoming

Please excuse the odd tint on my photos.
It is very hard for me to get a good picture with the 
lighting in this huge place.
But you get the idea I hope.

Lots of glittered paper wreaths and ornaments.
It's funny how things come round again.
Back in the 80's I can remember making 
construction paper cone wreaths to decorate 
my son's elementary classrooms.
Now you can find these decorations on many blogs
 being made with vintage sheet music.
What's old is new again!

The owner of the Fox Den is an avid collector 
and whenI told him about the sheet music decorations, he GAVE me a huge stack
of fabulous vintage sheets, thank you Tom.
I won't ever run out!

 This is a really nice French side table I just restyled. 
It was a very nondescript 70's maple. The golden maple did not really enhance the french 
legs and curves.
I painted her Paris Grey and Old White with clear and dark wax.
I painted right over the outdated and worn leather inserts..no problem.

I think she is quite pretty now.

This gal has got some serios curves.

 All my silver is glowing and my little handmade holiday trees are 
all glittery.
More sheet music ornaments with German Glass glitter.

So easy and fun to make.
Let me know if you need instructions on the decorations.
Leave me a comment

Having a booth is something I would love to do. Finding a place near here is impossible! sigh

I'm loving all the sheet music projects and just found some old piano books at the thrift store and 2 lovely old end tables that would be a perfect AS paint project.

PLEASE stop on over and read about my linky party next week. I hope you will join!

Lovely....and stunning! I would appreciate some instruction on making the sheet music wreaths and ornaments since you offered to share....that would be marvelous!
Thanks in advance!

Hey Janet, you are the Queen of sparkle..........it's looking very festive and glittery, wonderful.

More sheet music.........nice score, hehehe..........
As you say everything old is new again that's because there's nothing new under the sun, just different ways of doing them. Love the music sheet ornaments.

ALl the best for the 3rd, sounds like it's going to be a fun day. Hope there will be lots of folk popping by to check out your lovely shop and painting demonstration.

A lovely cool morning here but I think I'm going to need my ☂, rain is forecast and quite a bit of it. Have a great day,
