Hope that you had a lovely weekend! Thank you for all your sweet support on my Christmas items for the shoppe! There's still some goodies left and this will be my last year making the vintage tablecloth half dresden tea towels, so get one while you can! ;)
Well, I caught up on my blocks for Donna's Quilt Sampler this weekend. I really love how they are all turning out and can't wait to see them together in a quilt!
These last couple weeks I have been trying to hunt for some Christmas treasures at the local thrifts stores, and was super excited to find my first knee hugger elf and a plastic sparkly "Merry Christmas" sign!
Isn't he just so cute!! I have plans to add some prettiness to the plastic sign and use it in my Christmas wreath this year.
I also purchased online some vintage Sparkle Christmas mica snow from the 40's, which I am just loving the box graphics.
One lucky day I stumbled across a bag filled with these gorgeous Christmas corsages for under $2! I was so excited when I got home to take them all out and see how sweet each one was!
The angel with her horn is so precious, and the blue and silver one is so pretty!
the Santa is just the cutest and that one is the only one that says
"made in Japan" on the back, so I am not sure if the other ones were
handmade or purchased. I love them, and look forward to having them out
for Christmas, and maybe even wear one. I know, crazy, but I love this
At an estate sale I came across some sweet Santa napkins, and plastic poinsettia's, which I have been collecting in hopes to make a wreath out of all of them.
And,I also found some lovely vintage pot holders and tin molds, which are really coming in handy with storing sequins and other small craft goodies!
So, now that the shoppe items are done, my Christmas gifts and projects can start! Yay! There are a few projects from The Workbasket magazines that I want to try including the wreath ornament and poinsettia brooches.
But, the first project I will be making are felt stockings! I have been wanting to make vintage style felt stockings for awhile and been eying all the sweet vintage ones, so I am setting out this week to give them a try!
Thank you for always brightening my day,and wishing you a most lovely and creative week! And, for those of you in the states, may you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!
