November Rednesday #9



Hi Everyone!
Happy Rednesday!
November already and the beginning of the busy holiday season.

I saw this chair.....oops ....well you can see it is pretty

This is better....it's been hand-painted all over. I'm really not sure it isn't original not redone. Either way it sure is pretty
This is on my to do list,,,to find a chair and attempt to use this as the inspiration.


I also found this cute cake plate lid
I couldn't leave without it. It's Aluminum, of course, with an imprinted band of acorns and oak leaves. The lid handle is a carved acorn made from a piece of oak.

I've also started some Christmas items that'll be available at 
Brown Gingham Cabin Shoppe


This a Christmas  music box.
'Brown Gingham Christmas'
She's a 1960's music box angel that plays Silent Night. I embellished
her with a 1950's hankie I hand-embroidered, and flocked wings from a poinsettia flower. Her card is a copy of a vintage.
She's available to decorate your Christmas table.

Today is Rednesday I hope you can join the party!

I love your new plate lid, it's lovely and old fashion looking! Pretty C'mas music box too. Thank you for the great Rednesday party; I'm so happy to be here finally with a tablecloth that has RED in it too!
Have a wonderful rest of the week.

Hugs,
Deb

Good day, Melody! What treasures you found. The chair, though perfect for autumn, has such a gingerbread appeal with its colors and that 'icing' trim, that I think it would be great for Christmas, too.

The cake holder reminds me of the one my mother and grandmother had, but theirs had a black handle. Oh, the sweet memories - pun intended ;)

Your Angel is darling and of course how could I miss that lovely "Brown Gingham" hankie so perfectly embroidered. I hope it finds a loving home soon.

I'm ready for REDnesday, showing off your gorgeous table runner. Thank you for hosting, you do it so well.

Many blessings for the day,

Marianne xo
