My Little Entrepreneur's Glittered Pine Cones

Some kids have lemonade stands, mine makes glittered pine cones! LOL.
My sweet little 7-year old made these gorgeous pine cones yesterday.
She gathered the cones from our yard, cleaned them, and then we frosted them in a vintage-y silver glitter. They really are beautiful, if I do say so myself!!! And quite large. They are all between 4" - 6" long. You could add a wire hanger and ribbon to make lovely ornaments or place them in a bowl for display.


She is selling them in sets of 5 for $5.
Click HERE to see!


We are off to get our Christmas tree, while my Little One dreams up more things she can glitter.
Bananas?
Socks?
Daddy?
Seriously, I've created a monster! :)

Black & White & Spooky All Over

Hi Friends, I've been so busy getting ready for Silver Bella that I just realized I never posted the Halloween ornaments from my previous post. I know many of you (myself included) have already moved on to Christmas... but these just have to be shared! :)

Some bloggy friends and I got together for a fun little ornament swap last month. The guidelines were to follow a black, white/cream, and vintage theme. I must say that this was one of my most favorite swaps ever! Just look at these lovelies!

These are the ornaments I made. Beetle prize ribbons. Not sure if a bug would really be considered a prize! :)
