A Reindeer Makeover ~Pretty in Pink Stocking for me ~ Holiday Giveaway Continues!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far. Yesterday while doing some last minute grocery shopping, I made sure to stop off at one of my favorite Goodwill stores to see what might be waiting there for me to take home, and I found a couple of things, one of which being this fab metal reindeer! They also had another one, more in a lying down position, but you could tell that the head had been glued back on, so I decided to pass on it. Below is how it looked before I gave it a little transformation.....



And here it is all painted up pretty in pink.....I also added a bow of Vintage soft pink ribbon, a Vintage Millinery soft pink rose, and for a little bling, a Vintage Rhinestone pin in a snowflake design... what do you think?



I've been busy creating stockings to sell on both my Ebay and Etsy sites, and today I FINALLY created one just for ME....It's made with soft pale pink Matelasse, Vintage Crochet & lace trims, Vintage Shell buttons, Vintage ribbons, and both a Vintage Pink rose and newer creamy white parchment roses. I plan to make one more stocking for myself to display in my home for the Holidays, and I'll be sure to show you once I've made it...it will of course be done in pinks :)



There are just 6 more days left to enter my Holiday Giveaway...if you haven't done so yet, just click the link at the top of my right sidebar and it will take you right to that post so you can do so....Can't wait until I find out who will be the lucky lady to win!!!

Until next time sweet friends!!!
