A Vulture's Roost Merry Christmas.....

We wish you a Very Merry Christmas ~

Happy Holidays from all of us at Vulture's Roost ~ It snowed at Vulture's Roost, it must be the magic of Christmas ~

I thought I would show you a picture of my daughter's Christmas present,  I have been working on this for a week. We are only making handmade presents for each other this year.

I had no idea what to make until I saw this flask bottle in the cupboard, I have never  embellished a big bottle so this was a new venue for me. I really like how it turned out and I think she will like it too. I used vintage glass jewels and cabochons, vintage stampings and lots of found treasures ~ I used Gallery Glass in lime green to color my bottle, I like to make drips with it LOL.

This is a back view of the bottle. I filled it with peacock feathers, I left a clear frame so she could see the feathers.
This is my last post for 2011 ~ I wish you all a Healthy and Prosperous New Year ~

Christmas is coming to Vulture's Roost.........

Happy Sunday Friends....

I walked out into the room where my doll houses are displayed this morning and couldn't believe my eyes...Vulture's Roost was all decked out for Christmas! I haven't decorated my house this year and had not planned to decorate my doll houses seems that Marie and Nigel didn't agree with me ~

I walked up for a closer look....Vulture's Roost was all decked out! ~ 

I never would have thought that the inhabitants of a haunted house would want to decorate for Christmas ~  I see Nigel found my decorations for the old doll house and some garlands and wreaths from Wootens Miniatures  ~

I think Nigel and Marie did a Beautiful job decorating the mansion ~

Nigel even put up Christmas lights ~

Lucas looks quite pleased with the Holiday decor ~

My biggest shock was when I looked in the parlor ~ they had put up a tree and decorations, there were even presents ~ someone had even hung the beautiful drapes on the window ~  Thank you Linda for the beautiful drapes, they fit the window perfectly!

Merry Christmas from Vulture's Roost ~

May your Holidays be Merry and Bright ~

I will be back later in the week with more Christmas cheer ~
