Playing with vintage finds

I’ve been collecting all sorts of things (STUFF) for a while now and decided it was time to have a full blown Party with the Stuff!  My wood shop is a disaster and it looks like a tornado was in my paint/assembly shop. 

Bowling anyone?  Wooden Toy Bowling Set done Santa Style!

Yep, the picture is at an angle but so are the Steampunk Pumpkins mental status!  The metal parts came from an old typewritter, zippers came from old jeans.
Tall Santa is from a Porch Post, 3 other ones are from a
stairway post.  I have left the original paint on the bases
and on Santa robe, hat, pants.

Well that's all that is done for now and I have a few more that need to be assembled yet.  Then it will be not so much fun cleaning up all the stuff.  Is it just me or do you forget about all the small stuff you have?  This is my biggest mess I think I dragged out about everything and still could not decide what to add to my carvings that are in the assembly progress now.  Then I knew it was time to stop and eat some Chocolate maybe alittle coffee on the side!

Thanks for stopping in and have a good weekend!    just lisa

Lisa these are wonderful and so much fun. I love their quirky personalities and the fact you seem to be able to create something wonderful and fun from just about any old thing. I've been facing a big cleanup after a recent creating frenzy and I just keep putting it off and eating chocolate instead. ;o} Seriously!! It's chocolate or lollipops. Too bad we can't trade messes because I can't stand looking at this one any longer.

I'd love to trade messes! Maybe I should stock up on lollipops too :)
I love your new work you posted on your blog site.
Have a great weekend and stay cool
