Sweet Peppermint Wynter
First, I knew I wanted a peppermint theme. The snowman make-do I recently made as a giveaway inspired the snowman in this piece, with his peppermint neck. I love groups of snowmen so hence the 3 small snowmen in a cart...and I love carts with big wheels. Little prim trees in the landscape, well, that is a no-brainer; easy and simple to do. BTW, those trees go around this piece so if it is sitting where all sides can be seen, well then, it all looks pretty; no empty spots ( I don't like seeing empty spots on my pieces. More work but bigger satisfaction). The "not a coffee pot" handle is painted in candy cane fashion.
What's inside? I used some moss with winter red berries and some snowflakes. I added some peppermint rounds made from wood, a whimsical snowman make-do with his skinny tall stove pipe hat and a cinnamon snowflake. I added some homespun fabric and completed it with a prim tag. I've put this arrangement in my Etsy shoppe. You can reach my Etsy Shoppe by clicking the icon, on the left, that says "The Old Cupboard Door on Etsy".
Thanks for stopping by my place.
Til next time....
