Wishes Do Come True


 
Sometimes I wish for silly things.  Today, while putting together the Christmas buffet and playing around making the W-I-S-H banner, was one of those times.


First, I wished I had been the one to paint these little bunnies.  I'm not beating myself up for that one because, well, who wouldn't.  And, hey, I did snag this print on canvas for just $20.  I was only going to use the frame but when I got it home I had a better idea.

Before the "S" was set right
  
Then I wished I hadn't hung that "S" upside downwards... I'm still wishing that one. 
After the "S" was set right

 I wished I could, just once, use a glue gun without burning myself.
I wished glitter only stuck to things you wanted it to.
And, I wished I could remember my glasses were (still) on the top of my head.
I even wished I was taller.
Oh, and seriously, I wished for world peace.
 



























Just one more wish...I wish every project, like this one, turned out to look just like the picture I had in my head.

  5. Very cute Lindy. I wouldn't have noticed the upside down "s" if you hadn't said anything. Here's wishing you a Merry Christmas.

  7. Hi Lindy! I just love your bunny painting. I love anything with rabbits...we even have one for a family pet! Love your banner too. I would like something similar to hang on my big mirror in the front room. Beautiful buffet display!

    Karen,
    I didn't make the twig candle rings. "I can make that" was the first thing I thought when I saw them but when I saw the price, $7.50 and 40% off that....sold!

  12. Like Karen, I love love love the bunny print, Lindy! AND you have got to share the twig candle rings! Looking at them, they appear to be a bear to try and make, so I'm hoping you'll tell me they came from Kirklands or Hobby Lobby, Target or Wally World! haha Merry Christmas, CutiePie!

  13. I just had to come back and tell you that I began looking for that print, for it's just too sweet. Here's a link. You may have a great find on your hands :)

  14. Wonderful display. I especially like the twig candle rings.
    I also wish I didn't always burn myself when I use a glue gun....probably why I never use super glue, I'd super glue myself to something.

  17. This is all so stunning! I love it! And since I am a HUGE rabbit person....I am wishing....I had that print!!! Wherever did you get it? Does it have a name?

    Gorgeous buffet!

    Merry Christmas!

  18. Hi Lou Cinda, I got the bunny print from a local junk store -- for real! But check out Nancy's comment - she sent me a little info on it.

  19. I love the soft muted tones of the buffet, the angel and the plates with the dark woodsy-ness of the candle and the picture. Just the right amount of silver was used to give it that sparkly hint of a party.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wherever did you acquire those adorable bunnies? What a beautiful vignette you've created ~ I'm so glad it met your expectations! World Peace may be more difficult to accomplish but we can all keep WISHING! xox

  21. I adore the bunny print!! I enjoy your blog, the vignette is so pretty. Thanks for sharing your home. Would love some stocking to hang, when the kids left home they took ours with them.

  24. I LOVE it! So very ingenious. The twig candle rings are awesome. And I'm so with you on the glitter. As pretty as glitter is, it is forbidden in my house due to the mess...it never leaves after you're done with it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's just beautiful, Lindy. I "wish" you were a friend of mine..oh wait, I think that one came true ;). Blessings, Kim. Is there a stick candle ring tutorial that I missed?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your entire tabletop makes me feel very merry and bright!

    Seasons greetings to you.

  27. I too adore the bunny print! What a deal you found and what a treasure! I sometimes buy things at thrift stores that I think I'll take apart, paint or sell and when I bring them into my home, I see them in a completely new light and suddenly can't imagine changing or parting with them! I love your "wish" banner too, and your post was very sweet! Thank you for sharing!

  39. World peace might be a stretch...but hey, we can always wish. In lieu of world peace, youve definitely created a serene, peaceful, beautiful vignette for Christmas...I even like the upside down 's.' All of your personal touches take this setting over the top...Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

  42. Hi!

    First of all, I love your photos. They are beautifully composed and of such wonderful objects. Did you make the twig settings for those candles? How did you make the WISH sign?

    I love the stockings you make. I advertised about your Give Away on my blog. I tried to add your button, but it didn't work, so I put you under Favorite Sites on my sidebar, which is true, because now that I've found you, I'm sure I will come back often.

    God bless!

  48. This is such an inspiring post. We all should wish for silly things along with the many serious ones. I'm thinking a "Silly Wish Wednesday" could be the hottest new blog party for 2011!
    I love the photos of that beautiful space. It is magical!

  73. Lindy,
    You are very crafty! I am loving your blog and am your newest follower. Your "Wish" banner is so cool, especially hanging from the bunny print--which I love btw! The whole vignette is magazine worthy. I bought a Merry Christmas banner yesterday at Target for like $3 out of Tartan plaid--similar to yours. Stop by vignette design sometime and say hi! ~Delores
