This is some fabric that I bought on our trip to Iowa and Missouri. The blue stripe might be vintage, I am not sure – I only have a wee bit of it. But I love all 3 and I love how they go together. I haven’t decided how they will be used yet, but I loved to pull them out and think on it… Their colors remind me of the ones in the vintage Christmas balls. I think it is interesting how my color pallet is so consistant across all seasons and holidays.
This is what my dining room table looked like 2 nights ago with orders ready to be put in mailers and sent out. My table will probably look a lot like this again tonight.
But enough about work; How are you all? I have missed you this week! This morning I sat down to read through as many blogs as I could in the 1/2 hour I had before I had to get Miles to school. Looks like a lot of you have begun your Christmas decorating extravaganza’s.
We won’t start till Sunday, the first day of Advent. We will go find a nice scraggly tree on Saturday and Sunday night we start the process of spreading Christmas cheer all over the house. Meanwhile here are a few vintage goodies I found last week during a frivolous moment of flea marketing!
First I found these really old “Made in Japan,” Christmas village houses tucked away behind a some other very non – Christmas items. As if someone just stuck them in their booth on a whim, not at all appreciating the treasure that they had! Well to bad for them, and oh happy day for me! I think I actually squealed when I found these and then saw their price tag – $8 for the whole set! I can’t wait to put them in the china hutch with my other vintage items and snowy village houses.
I may not post much between now and Monday – there is so much to do! But I will be back with much more merriment then, I promise!
