A Few Creations for the Holiday Market

Is it really mid November?  I don't remember getting off to a late start way back in January, but I sure hope I can catch up before the year is over. First thing on my agenda this week is to finish up some last minute details and a few more holiday inspired creations for the Noel Vintage Holiday Market this Friday and Saturday.

Last week I created a few cloches and some whimsical goodies made with old springs.

Wire baskets purchased at a flea market were turned upside down for an instant cloche.
Etched light globes topped with wooden knobs were a perfect fit inside the silver plated goblets.

Old wooden knobs were glued to the original bottoms.

I can just hear the sound of breaking ornaments if little hands (or big hands) decide to pick this up without the base.  Do you think some clear tape would be a good idea, or should I bring it without the ornaments?  

Before settling on shredded sheet music, I tried faux snow in these silver cups, but they looked too much like fried eggs.

Just for fun.....see what I mean?
I still want to use this cast iron skillet as a base for a cloche, but haven't found the perfect match yet.

Old springs, jello molds, and some shredded paper hold little LED tea lights.

The show will be held indoors with no flames or real candles allowed; I thought these battery operated tea lights would be a perfect alternative.  Purchased at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $19.99 with my 20% off coupon of course.  These really are brighter than any others I've used.

I've had this part from a chippy metal light fixture for ages.  Sheet moss, an old spring, and a few Christmas ornaments make it a whimsical little tree.

The base of the spring was too large for the light fixture until I tweaked it a little by adjusting the screws.

I hope to get a few more projects completed and posted this week, but we'll see how that goes.  So much to do and to think about right now.  Hugs!!!
