ETSY shop - which has the same name as my blog. I have been painting for more than thirty years and have accumulated a lot of stuff. Now I find I want to destash my little "studio" and clear out some of my clutter - besides, my children's biggest fear is that I will leave all of that "stuff", as they so lovingly call it, to them. While going through some of the cabinets this weekend I found a box of ribbon I had forgotten about. So in my attempt to declutter I made these ribbon pinecone ornaments with the ribbon I found. And of course I gravitate to the ribbon with pink circles. This was my first attempt to making this ornament and I wasn't sure how to do it. I have one given to me by a friend but I didn't want to take it apart so I just looked it over really good and went from there. I think it turned out nice so while watching Dancing with the Stars tonight I will make a few more.Less than 12 weeks before Christmas - Can you believe it?? Maybe it's my age but time seems to fly by - my body says I am getting older faster but in my mind I still feel and think young. Oh, well, it is what it is.

Ever come up with an idea and then say to yourself "What was I thinking?" I found a box of vintage ornaments that were given to my daughter by her mother-in-law. They are hand blown in Poland and very fragile. While trying to paint on one I held it too tightly and it shattered in my hand so I decided to try something simpler - a bow and a rose. Then I thought it looked too plain so I added the little snow pellets - but still needed something more so I hung a "snow drop" inside the ornament. I stood back and admired my little creation. Then my sweet angel, Sofie Rose, who sits on my right shoulder, said to me "Sugar, that turned out nice!" Then I have the other angel that sits on my left shoulder, Suzanna Jane (named after my fictional sister) - you know the one - the one that tells it like it is. She said "Girl, what were you thinking!! Who would hang a snow drop made of glass inside a very fragile glass ornament?" And she was right - one whack against that glass and the ornament is a goner!! I just love those little angels. Although it would have been nice to hear from them before I put that glass snow drop in every one of those fragile glass ornaments.
I will be linking up with How Sweet the Sound's Pink Saturday this week, I am just a little early in my postings. Stop by and see what other goodies everyone is posting.
