Thank you to DecoArt and Cupboard Distributing for sponsoring our very first Blog Hop!  I encourage you to check their sites and products for more inspiring ideas!

The ornament I have chosen from Cupboard Distributing to create is a hand-turned round ornament.  It reminds me of vintage toy tops and you all know how much I love vintage!  So many possibilities for these turned ornaments!

 And I have been playing around with DecoArt colors to create a vintage green chalkboard feel and I think the color combos of Forest Green and Shale Green look super vintage….matching it up with Country Red for a homespun feel.

Eucalyptus …….when it first came on the scene in the early 90’s it was used in every flower arrangement you could find….and then I think it was forgotten.  Recently I passed by this in Joanne Fabrics and glanced at it with fresh new eyes, I then found myself purchasing some and home I went! ~ Oh the fun we are going to have with eucalyptus this Christmas season!

It inspired me to paint eucalyptus on the ornament  for the exchange blog hop, a little unexpected in my designs!….of course throwing in some baker’s twine…..makin’ it Classic.
