Christmas Decor on a Budget!

For the last several years, Adam and I have been on a pretty strict Christmas decoration budget.
Fortunately for me, my mother is as in love with Christmas decor as I am and has plenty to share.
However, I still like to have something new every year to add a little spice to the decor I have already used.
The next couple of days, I hope to have several posts up about easy, crafty, affordable, cute decorations that this year!

As most of you know, Mom and Dad bought a new house.
The previous owners were very crafty.
The lady even owned a kiln or two and taught ceramics classes out of her basement.
They left behind all kinds of wonderful things that are going to good homes.
I pulled this little jem out of their trash pile.

I brought him home and put him in my sewing cabinet and completely forgot about the poor guy until I needed some scraps.
He rolled out into the floor and my heart pitter-pattered!
I picked up some Krylon metallic spray paint at the store today and ran home to fix him.

I got the quick drying stuff so two coats and thirty minutes later, he was ready!

Now if were only time to put out Christmas decorations...
