Mod Podge Christmas Decor!

As I'm getting ready for our 
Holiday Cookie Exchange Party
here at Heritage Home~Place
I am decorating every indoor and outdoor area possible.
As I add a silver tree to my 1954 Clipper Silver Streak Camper
I realize that I don't have the right color of bulbs.
Hmmm...do I search online for the right teal color or do I create them myself?
Of course, my first place to look for diy projects is Pinterest.
And I found the perfect solution!
Make them myself!
Debbiedoos had the answer for me!
So, with Mod Podge and Rit Dye I started the process
of creating my own color for the bulbs on my tree!

 Since I'm already a fan of Mod Podge, it was easy to follow
Debbie's directions!  I bought some really cheap
small silver bulbs from the Dollar General and started the process.
I first mixed some Aqua Marine Rit Dye in the Mod Podge.
Then I painted the bulbs.  I sprinkled on some silver glass glitter
and hung to dry.  Inspired by the color, I then created
some Christmas gifts using wine glasses and clear glass bulbs I used the same
process and was thrilled with the finished products!
I can even use the Mod Podge/Rit Dye on white burlap
to make really unique tags!
I'm hooked on Mod Podge more than ever!

Ye Old Cook Stove

This little cook stove is the center piece of our booth space
This beauty used to be my moms.
There is quite a story that goes with this little stove.
My mom bought it from my father-in-law many years ago.
It was in pieces.  She and dad fixed it and set it up.
They had it for several years until it was sold in an auction.
A few years later, my mother-in-law was at a friend's home
and saw the stove and recognized it.
The owner was wanting to sell it.
My hubby and I bought it and set it up as a
decorator piece in our dining room in our old farm house.
We sold the farm house to our oldest son and left the stove to him.
A few years later he sold the farm house.
We took the stove to store it for him.
I stored it as a decorator piece in my potting shed.
 It was pretty rusted.  I decided to move it to my booth space
in the Iron Horse Primitives.
To clean it up, I used white vinegar and a scouring pad
and scrubbed as much rust off of it as possible.
I then treated it with crisco just like I would one
of my iron skillets and let it sit in the sun.
It worked beautifully!
I love treasures that have meaning.
This little stove definitely is one of my favorite treasures!
