My woodland Christmas dreams are coming along rather nicely. While Jack was with Jenny on Saturday (reminding her that he is only allowed to use "washable markers!", which makes me laugh), Dave and I braved Macys.
We found adorable glass gnomes in three different poses...
and a GIANT Martha Stewart toadstool.
Jack is still convinced toadstools or mushrooms are marshmallows, and he could not believe how big this "marshmallow" was!
I really had planned on ordering some cotton mushrooms for the feather tree, but my money is always needed elsewhere this time of year.
So when I saw these 1970's vintagey mushrooms in a junk shop, I figured I could give them a makeover. (I've just wrapped their stems with floral tape in this photo to protect them from the first coat of spray paint.)
And with some paint they are adorable toadstools*.
Ready to be wired onto the feather tree. (Just a sneak peek, I will show you the whole thing soon. Decorating really is taking me a long time this year.)
I did tell you it was "marshmallow" madness around here, right? LOL
Dave bought me these most adorable teeny tiny glass toadstools for our anniversary. (These came from World Market.) I would love to have gobs and gobs of these, but they are sort of crazy pricey for tiny ornaments.
You know when I saw these gnome napkin rings in the antique mall they were going to be mine. They are hanging out at the base of the tree.
And with that, I am dreaming of a Woodland Christmas...
(Which was my original blog title until Jack reminded me of his "marshmallows.")
*Can't find any mushrooms to make over? Make your own with paper clay.
(Seeing if bloglines will ever pick this post up.)
