Fun Making Christmas Toy Wreath with Vintage Ornaments

 Christmas time sure is a wonderful time to get creative.  Don't you think?  I really wanted to share the big toy wreath that mom and I worked on together.  It was so much fun to make! Not only is it loaded with lots of different ornaments, but it also has lights! It is a little hard to see them in the picture,  but I did have them plugged in so you could see them tw i nkle! This wreath has mostly vintage ornaments. Look at that little Santa Claus face! He makes me happy! The adorable little elf is new,  but so cute that I had to include him!  The bear is a Vintage Avon toy, but was still new in the wrapper!  He is the cute toy that inspired me to make this wreath! I knew that when I found this sweet bear that he looked fun and needed an entire wreath to display him.  Haha!  I just love home make wooden and felt Christmas ornaments. Do you remember making them when you were little? They remind me of my childhood!  I hung this out on my front door for the pictur

Vintage Doll and Pixie and Pyrex Friendship Cinderella bowls

Hello! What have you been up to lately?  I been hanging out at thrift stores a lot this year, haha! I found some great things including these sweet dolls. One is a Bendable Pixie that lays on your bed. I think her face is so pretty. Another favorite is this little blinking eye doll! She also has the sweetest face! I discovered the red doll bed a while back! It even has a sweet little decal on it and it is red! I just had to add it to my collection of toys, which was small but is growing! My sister blessed me with this beautiful set of vintage Pyrex Cinderella mixing bowls! Aren't they stunning? The pattern is called,  Friendship. It was such a generous and thoughtful gift. The color is vivid and they are near perfect! I also have fun playing with the photo editors. I like this black and white version!

My Vintage Booth and Crafting

This vintage lamb nursery planter is just the cutest kisth baby welcoming gift! I found it while out thrifting recently. Hello! I am glad you decided to come for a visit!  I have spent a lot of time this year working on my Booth #B112 at the American Classics Market Place, in Colorado Springs. I sell vintage home items like the antique depression glass cooky jar picture. and also some of my own crafting and sewing. So I am hopefully going to be even busier between now and Christmas with making a lot of fun things for my booth. Here are some cloth stuffed pumpkins that I made. Wish me luck! I tend to be the slowest person in the world when I craft or sew or crochet, etc. It is a wonder I ever finish anything! As a matter of fact, I have plenty of unfinished projects that I will be working on again right after the New Year! Do you do that? Stop before a project is finished? I can not believe how fast this year is flying by. My brain is not accepting that summer is over, le

New Booth Little Susie Home Maker

HI friends! Hope this finds you all happy and healthy. I just had shoulder surgery about three weeks ago and have been trying to heal from that. Makes it almost impossible for me to do any crafts very well! Haha! Have you been making crafts and doing hobbies?  I opened up my own booth in March. Selling vintage and some sewing, crochet,  etc. It's fun to finally get to do this. I am located in Booth B112 at The American Classics Marketplace,  in Colorado Springs, CO The end of the school year is almost here, so looking forward to more time with my children! I don't really have anything certain planned for the summer. But hoping to fit some road trips and vintage hunting into some family time and sight seeing! Wishing you all the best Mother's Day! God bless you! Little Susie Home Maker

Spring has Sprung

Spring time in the Rockies. Seems to be a happy dance between sunshine and snow! But I am thrilled that winter is over. The grass is starting to turn green and the bushes are begining to bud. The first thing I hear in the morning is the sound of birds chirping and scattering about just outside my bedroom window. On the porch, our vacant birdhouses have new tenants!  Little sparrows have moved in! The bird feeders and bird bath are full of activity! Out in the yard we have several families of bunnies that play and tumble! They never cease to make me smile. I am so happy to see the new life come to my yard in the Spring! HalleluYah! How are you enjoying the Spring? Blessings Little Susie Home Maker
