Getting Ready for Christmas in the Country

I have been busy the past few weeks, getting all my goods ready for the
Christmas in the Country sale at the Gresham Barn. +
Tomorrow I have to drop everything off, but I wanted to share a few of my creations with you.
First, I'm very proud of this redware wreath

And these fun wreath stands that I decided to put together yesterday, Yep I said Yesterday. They'll be dropped off at the sale as soon as the paint dries.

The wreath stands are made from table legs, some scrap wood for the base, and old hooks. make sure you attach your hooks high enough for the wreath to hang free.
I've also been busy sewing garage sale bags.

The bag display stand is made in much the same way as the wreath holder. If I had time, I'd paint it, but I just don't think I can get it done.

I've also got several wheel wreaths available, many with vintage ornaments.

I've also got several of these old game board, coat hook thingies.

Whew, I've been busy, You'll read more about the Sale and maybe I'll have some pics next week.

Hello from Nebraska!! We met on the junk jaunt by Taylor at the Red Barn. I've been dropping by faithfully every since... In fact if you have time, I would like for you to look at a lamp I purchased that's posted on my blog and give me some ideas on painting, decorating... Blessings

Hi Margo,all your things look great. Those wreath stands turned out wonderful. Your wreath looks so good displayed on it! I read your post about the Collins purses. They are highly collectible. I have one,I may be willing to give up if you want it.
Also,I wanted to let you know I have tagged you....
I pray your sales will go over great at the barn have some very neat items to offer.
