In the meantime, I thought I'd share with you two sweet little trees I created. I think my sister gave me these two unfinished wood trees -- well, I got them somewhere other than a store -- so, I decided to finish them. They just happened to be sitting beside me when I was painting my side table and I had some leftover Benjamin Moore Fernwood Green paint. So, they each got a coat of Fernwood Green. I set them aside, for a while. Then came the craft show and I decided that I needed to finish them.
Out came the box of vintage buttons and bottle of Gorilla Glue. I created one with all white buttons and then one with white and gray buttons. They looked unfinished and I knew I needed to add presents or something to the base, but what?
I actually wrapped these tiny presents and they ended up looking tacky, so I began my search through my stashes of vintage findings ... what about more buttons and bobbins? Perfect! And there you have it folks -- little trees -- perfect for a seamstress or anyone! I sold the all-white one at my craft show to someone who really appreciated it ... I could tell. She held it up and was so excited to see the bobbin with the green thread still on it (my kind of gal). So glad she bought it.I'm linking to:
