More Christmas

Another sweet vintage tree topper to add to my collection~
I love displaying these on this pretty green shred in a pretty silver dish. I found this at the
thrift shop today for $1.50 . This little thing made my whole day! Also picked up some white vintage damask napkins. I just love them and feel like I can never have enough of them .
I also made a bunch of these for the barn sale next weekend . I took old vintage reflectors and added some sparkly tinsel with vintage images and they turned out so sweet and christmasy.

I also added some pretty things like this old satin ribbon pin cushion here in my shop along with a lot of other pretty findings like old doll dresses,vintage wallpaper and craft bits to make things with !!! Now wouldn't this make a lovely christmas present! Especially for the sewer or shabby person in your life. I would pin on a little message with a pearly corsage pin.
Will be back with pictures of my nearly finished all white tree with all vintage pale pink /silver ornaments! Hopefully I'll get it photographed this weekend to show ya!

I got up too early to leave for work so I am just nosing around the Internet and I found your wonderful blog. I hope you don't mind if I use your idea for the vintage reflectors. I have a whole box just sitting here with no lights to go on. I can't wait to see my tree with these!

Pretty, pretty vintage. I wish I could get my hands on my grandmother's old ornaments. Unfortuately, they're long gone -- but looking at yours reminds me of them.

Love the vintage Christmas items! Aaah and I saw your article in Somerset Life today! It's just great! A friend of mine sent me her copy of Somerset Life, isn't that sweet?! Did your surgery went well? I am not ready with my swap for you yet, but I'll try to finish everything this week, as promised. Does the time go as quick in your neck of the woods as it does here? Take care sweetie!

I know what you mean about the napkins, don't they feel wonderful to use? The older the better, they get so nice and soft!

I always remember my Dad putting on those sparkling tree toppers that I thought were the most gorgeous things in the world as a young child.
