Christmas Ideas....

For ME!  or you.  Or anyone!  I put together a collection on Artfire, something I have no experience with, and I thought it was fairly cool and loaded with practical gift ideas.  I haven't received much response.  Do check it out if you have a moment, please? 

I've been building grocery totes with salvaged materials to use for Christmas wrap of late, and putting Victorian graphics on them, getting disgusted with the whole project.  I much prefer the look of silk screening and though I've been using nice quality transfer paper, it's just not the same.

I've put a few pieces in my ArtFire vintage studio lately and am off to list a bit more, before battening down hatches for our first snow storm.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I peeked and had to comment - you added CalicoCat's socks, which are one of my favorite things in the world!
    They're so thick and warm and I need some right now, especially after you mentioned snow!

    And I wish I could remember the name of the silk-screening tool I just saw last week...
    Have you seen them before?

  2. Your wrapping idea sounds great, love it. Off to look at your gift ideas.

  3. Great gift ideas! Love those bowls!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my Post on Victorian Ceiling Tin... no wonder I have sporadic reception on the Cells and cordless phones! *smiles* In this ole' house we have tons of vintage metal in the architecture and it's built like a bunker *14 inch thick walls and ceilings*... so we've always had trouble with phone reception and dropped calls if you walk around the House while talking!!!
