Vintage Rudolph Gift Tags

I liked the angel ornament I made a few years 
ago so much that I created Rudolph gift tags
done in much the same style...

Striped Enamel Pedestal Dish

I love everything with stripes.

I wear stripes all the time.... 
I have stripes all over my house.

I think it is the graphic nature of stripes 
that appeals to me.... I'm also a lover of red.

So when I found these enamel, red striped plates...

Beverage Tags


Here are some adorable beverage tags in the 
Ballard Catalog this month!

I can do that... a little different but the same... easy!

I had shims, I backed them thin end to fat end 
and glued them together...
This made the shims the same thickness all the way 
down the length.

I cut the shims into 6" pieces,
cut them tag shaped, and sanded the edges...

I drilled holes for the twine then sanded the holes...

I aged the wood with a vinegar/steel wool solution...

When the boards were dry I printed out some cute words...
sweet, lemonade, water & my favorite... over 21!

I drew the words freehand onto the wood trying to 
copy the font I printed out.... I used a Sharpie marker.
I gave each tag a spray of Poly to protect it then strung
a length of jute through the holes...

Mine have a very rustic look because I'm just that kind of girl!

These are an adorable idea because how many times do you have to tell people what's in the pitcher?!
Especially the Over 21 pitcher!

Now they'll know!

I'm looking forward to using these... every day!

Recycled Glass and a Pedestal

I love all things recycled glass... 
how psyched was I when I found the most beautiful 
recycled glass drink dispenser!...

Half price!

My everyday dishes are all recycled glass...

and so are my glasses....

So the drink dispenser was perfect! 


The problem with this little lovely was that
you had to put it at the edge of the table to get the glass under it.

I looked for a pedestal in the Pottery Barn catalog, they would all work very nicely... only the least expensive one was $19.00....


What if I make one?!

I used an old white sturdy bowl for the base...

and a square plate with upturned edges for the top...

attached them together with E6000 glue 
and painted it with white primer, 
it sticks to ceramics and has a nice flat finish....

It worked!

I got the same results for no cost...

And now the glasses fit very nicely under the spigot...

 I swear it makes the water with lemon taste even better!
