My Favorite Things

Some old and some mantel, my simple tree in my sewing room, our vintage stockings (25 years qualifies as vintage?), new glittery Eiffel Towers, vintage Santa mugs from my mom....I love Christmas! Why can't everyday be like Christmas? Merry Christmas!

A Little Vintage

I love the aqua and red vintage Christmas look! Without knowing how much I like these colors for Christmas, my husband went to the store yesterday and came home with these blankets. Wow! I said I love them! So this is what all my precious "little" people are getting this year. I found the snow flake applique on one of my favorite embroidery sites.... "lynnie pinnie". Thank you Lynnie! I think the color combinations are really unisex so some girls may get red and boys may get blue. Of course I had to add ribbon and a name tag. What fun! Also, I wanted you to see a new cookbook I bought....The Farm Chicks....cover is red and aqua and oh so vintage! I really like using things that I have had forever or that have passed down to me. It's a great feeling using things my mother gave me or that I was given 30 years ago. 12 days until Christmas! Enjoy your vintage ornaments or dishes and whatever you have and Merry Christmas! By the way, my sweet husband went and bought me 10 more blankets! Gotta get busy stitching.

Going To Ohio

Make a polka dot Christmas pail, add Mickey and Minnie, throw in two special shirts, put it altogether and viola....a little Christmas gift for a great-niece and great-nephew in Ohio! Merry Christmas Alex and Keith! XOXOX from Aunt Karen
