They are so beautiful left alone to admire there colors and shapes, but~
the bottle you see above was one I found in a favorite shop, and I feel in love with the glass bird on top.
I decided to get one for my website, Someplace In Thyme and do a make over on it.
Then it's just a matter of adding all the little things you love. For instance, roses, pearls, charms, and some beads off a strand made for wrapping around candles etc.
If you are not in the creating mood, this lovely one of a kind beauty can be found on my website.

I found these in an antique store while visiting family in Colorado Springs. I was only able to purchase four of them, but I had never seen the tree pattern with a tree in the center. I knew right away what I could create with them.
I then use a primer and paint.
Because I am not at the point of being able to paint my own roses, I use beautiful decals.
Modge Podge and glass glitter finish them off with a little sparkle.
I think they would be great to decorate a package too. Have fun!!
These can be found on my website, Someplace In Thyme.

Living in the desert, we have birds all year long, esp the sweet, little hummers.
I had this cardboard bird house and the cute tissue paper with a bird theme from 7 Gypsies and decided I couldn't wait any longer.......I had to create something special with them.
This is what I came up with. You could use this as an ornament, or have it sit out all year long on a cottage shelf.
This and more can be found on my website, Someplace In Thyme.

Polka Dot Closet has a tutorial on how to make your own decals and I might have to give that a try until I finally master my own roses. I will not give up, that is for sure. Until then, I think the decals are beautiful and they do just what I want them too.
These pretties and more can be found on my website, Someplace In Thyme.

This is for a set of three, all with a Paris theme and glass glitter. I thought they came out so sweet and just perfect for hanging on the tree.
I think these are my favorites for sure. I didn't think I could love snowpeople as much as this. It must be something in the air.
If you would enjoy seeing how I made them, please check out my personal blog Someplace In Thyme.
I hope to get these listed in my shop this evening. Have a great day!

One excuse I do have is that I have been very busy creating some pretty things for my website, Someplace In Thyme. The latest is this cute set of shabby Paris, Frenchie snowmen ornaments. I hope you enjoy them.
I hope you enjoy.

I decorated the tops with handmade paper roses, laces, ribbons and some charms. The above gingerbread man has what I like to call, the keys to the city charm.
Someplace In Thyme. I hope to see you there.

For the first time, I find myself ahead of the game and that makes me one very happy girl.
This is the last of 23 stockings. You heard me right, I created and finished 23 stockings so far this year.
Yes, I am a happy girl!!
I used vintage crochet work and pearls over this gorgeous teacup fabric, one of my favorites.
Someplace In Thyme.
Be sure to visit often, as I will be listing these and more in my shop and in my etsy shop as well.
