Feeling Festive...

Well, I finally got all of my vintage pram wheel decorations done....


They were really a joy to make. (no pun intended)


You can find them under the 'Holidays' section in my shop The Hope Jar if you are interested.


Just had to share these little goodies which are up too. I got these old milk caps many years ago at a house sale. They're as old as the hills and with a quick hole punch make perfect holiday tags!



And finally, a parting shot of Wilbur today as I found him on the couch. Does this dog have the life or what?

The wheels look wonderful. Wilbur is so lucky - he has the perfect life, He can just chill out when ever he wants to.

Joy, those pram wheels are fantastic...you've done a wonderful job of dressing them up.

The milk caps? Just days ago they were "plain" and look how quickly you've worked them up!!!

Whew girl, I think you should take a tip from Wilbur, sprawl out and just relax!!!

May I give your "You Make Me Laugh" award to one who is obviously THE BEST recipient?? (insert drum roll) Yup, I give it to dear, adorable, "makes me smile whenever I see a pic of him" and "still cracks me up when I watch that video of him watching Rudy"---Wilbur! Keep making us smile/laugh, Wilbur! :)

Your buggy wheels are darling! And your dog is a contortionist with no modesty! (But he's adorable, too!)

Oh, I love this post! What a nice use of materials!

I noticed that you like "When Harry Met Sally." It's on TV right now, so I guess this was a good time to land here!

Have a great weekend!
