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 twinkle!

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 picture so all the colors would look true and vibrant, but this is a heavy wreath,  so I think it is better for a wall!  I can see all the cute faces and homemade ornaments all the time that way!
 

Have you made any wreaths this year? Or other fun ornaments? I made several! I hope you don't mind me showing them after Christmas.


Wishing you all had a very Merry Christmas!

  7. So cute! I love the sweet ornaments of my youth, too. We went to my mom's last night and saw her tree - just filled with ornaments that we had when I was little - and so many that I had made for her over the years. Happy New Year Susie!

Little Susie Home Makers Best Peach Cobbler Recipe and tutorial

My easy to make Peach Cobbler is always a huge hit with my family and friends. It is so easy to make! You will love the smell as it is baking! I just had to share my recipe with lots of pictures for a tutorial that will have you baking in no time! Little Susie Home Maker's Peach Cobbler  1 stick butter (1/2 cup) 2 cups sugar 2 cups flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon cinnamon  2 cups milk 1 large or 2 med cans sliced peaches 2 tablespoons brown sugar The first thing you want to do, is put the stick of butter into your oblong baking pan. Then place in center rack of oven, then turn the oven on to preheat to 350* F. The butter will begin to melt in the baking pan.  Next, mix the sugar, flower, baking powder, cinnamon and milk in a large mixing bowl, into a batter. A long handle wooden spoon works just fine, but you could use a mixer if you like. Stir until well blended, but don't over beat.  Remove the oblong pan from the ove

It's Looking Like Fall Again

Just wanted to pop in and say hello. I know it's been a very long while. Are you all getting ready for Fall? It has been so warm here in Colorado. It was 90F yesterday. I hope to have some more posts for you soon. But we will see. I have a ways to recover from a recent surgery. So it's been a little hard to concentrate on projects just yet. I have to work on all my getting better first. I had a neck operation and have found that I can't seem to hold my arms up and hold my neck down when crafting without a lot of pain. So I am trying to work this out first. Have a great Fall. And I hope you are good. Blessings, Susie

Homemade Hummingbird Feeder & Recipe

The other day, I was looking out the window at one of our new tube bird feeders. I didn't think about it's bright red color when I bought it. Just thought it was pretty. Well we had been really having some of the most terribly windy days recently. My old feeders were blowing in the wind, and came crashing down. Needless to say, a few new feeders were in order. source Unfortunately, I hadn't replaced the hummingbird feeder. I noticed a humming bird fly about the red tube feeder! The tiny feathered beauty seemed disappointed to find only seed offered. source Well, I knew I needed to do something. So, I looked around and found this little old salt shaker. It is one of those tiny mason jar types with the handle. I figured I would try to make one out of it. Now, how would I do it? I decided to scrape out the holes with the small point of a steak knife and make the holes a more accommodating size. Then looked around and found a piece of red button hole elastic t
