star bright...

Star light,

Star bright,

The first star I see tonight.

I wish I may,

I wish I might,

Have the wish I wish tonight.
 I remember saying that little rhyme many nights as a child. I remember lying on the grass in the late evening, scanning the skies for the first star to make an appearance. It was a game to see who could spot the first star.

Just a couple of door hangers I made for my house this year. I love each and everyone.. they had to be different, and contain bits and bobs of things I love. Star button(I have a penchant for stars!) golden sea shells reminiscent of my past. I just had to add a bit to remind me of my beautiful homeland; often we would walk down to the beach or spend Christmas day out on the water in our boat.. I love the big brass button with its woven texture..rusty jingle bells and bows made out of scraps.. and the best part?
Up-cycling! Yep, these babies are made from cereal boxes! Hooray for being green:)
One of my guy's co-workers saw my pictures and ordered 4 larger ones for her family. Needless to say I've been busy whipping those up. I'll have pics of them soon too.
Just a quick visit today, more posts coming soon with many, many cards!
See you soon!
Happy Holidays,


  1. Super clever of you! These are wonderfully shabby chic ... love the glitter and all the embellishments. I look forward to visiting again soon!

  2. Starry beauties ... I love them ... adore the sheet music and all the embellies
    just wonderful ...

  3. I can totally see why you had a request for an order of these. They are amazing! Just lovely and even better that you recycled the boxes to create them. Wonderful job my friend!


Thanks for visiting and leaving some love! I appreciate it a lot!! :D
