Vintage Inspired Holiday pocket Hearts

It snowed a ton last night! It was like waking up to a soft blanket of down, until the kids ran out to the bus stop & ran all over it all!
I decided that if I wasn't going to hit the town and do all those really important errands I better get productive. These huge wool pocket hearts are finally listed in the shop in sets of 2.
I put some little bottlebrush trees & wreaths and handmade grungy candycanes that I twisted from pipe cleaners, & then sprayed with glitter & aged them with a "aged "colord ink pad. Added a little old button, and thats it.....and since they are all red & white.......if they don't sell I will use them to decorate my house this holiday season.
I found this great Eco friendly yarn made thats made entirely from recycled fibers. I thought it would make fantastic washclothes, and become a gorgeous potholder after, like Deb's over here!
More later- must get productive
Oh yes-Do go visit Danielle over at Princess Nimble Thimble & look at some darling farm animals!! With all these creative blog ladies, who needs to shop in a store this Christmas!! Im going to Etsy to shop! ***Except for the doll. I must find a "babyalive" if anyone's heard of her you know how hard she is to find. I found her on Ebay but the prices are outrageous! All this because she poops! LOL. Thanks to Jackie who invited me to participate in a recipe swap. I made that "Easy Cheezy chicken" last night & it was fantasic...even the picky ones ate dinner!!!
~cheers~

I'll be purchasing a Baby ALive this Christmas too. I've seen them in a few stores around here, so I don't think it should be a problem for me. Let me know if you need help locating one.

beatuful hearts... how do you have patience to make everything? I have such a short attention span. I'mcurious to see your twisty scarf. I checked out the pattern but i want to see what yours turned out like first, as I don't really like the pattern example.

lovely little hearts you made! And I think that yarn looks very interesting too. I love the sound of a 100% recycled-fibre yarn!
Thanks for your kind comment on my blog. :)

Awww...thanks for speaking so kindly of my wee felty animals! :)

I LOVE your pocket hearts!!

I had a BabyAlive when I was little. She got a bit...ummm...blocked up. My mom threw her away because she got stinky.

I saw the modern version at walmart the other day. Tons of them. Maybe they aren't all the rage here in Missouri??
