Some more of our awesome Antique Company Mall vendors and their Christmas scenes.

Chalkboard Art

Have you noticed all the chalkboard art these days?  I recently found CJ Hughes from Custom in Tennessee.  His work is beautiful.  Go see his website to see more.

Booth 58 has been selling a lot of chalkboards lately.  I spent some time adding a version of  my "chalkboard art" to them.... Nothing like CJ's - but my feeble attempt. 

It is fun to see what a little bit of white chalk can do! 

A chalkboard is a fun gift for anyone on your list. Wrap it up with a cute ribbon or twine... add a couple pieces of chalk ... and viola!  Done!

  I gave a friend one as a housewarming gift recently, with a quote about "home" written on it.  Perfect for a teen or college student also.  And any busy mom or teacher would appreciate a fun place to make her lists.  I have one in our kitchen where I jot my kids' current Bible verses we are working on memorizing.... and sometimes just a fun message from me to them.  They think the "old fashion" chalkboard is cool....

Monday at the Mall

Spent some time last weekend taking pictures of all things Merry around ACM.  Here are some of the Bright spots!
Carolyn's snowglobe collection

More from Carolyn

Look at all these old ornaments

Cindy's booth has a whimsical feel unlike any other in ACM. 

Don't you love her bright cheerful colors?

Really love her sparkly Christmas village cottages

John Davis has some great vintage Christmas pieces

We got to work with Larry last weekend and he told us all about these light up yard ornaments.  He has quite the collection and he is selling them like crazy!  They line the railing of the top floor and greet all the visitors at the Mall.

Can you see Larry's welcoming committee in this photo at the front door?

A few of our Booth 58 rustic Christmas treasures... Doesn't everyone need a sled on their front porch?

Happy Monday at the Mall, friends!
More from several other ACM vendors next week.....

My little angels

Another "show and tell" today... My little angels:

Made these little angels from vintage salt and pepper shakers.  This was fun!  I made a whole "multitude" of them! 

My real "little angels" were fascinated with them and loved their wings.  I had to reattach a few that Little Mr. 58 loved on a bit too much!
