Hi Bloggy Pals :)
I thought I'd start sharing something a little different today. So, probably for a good 15 years now I've had a (mild?) obsession with vintage and antique Christmas decor.
You've probably noticed I tend to bring vintage Christmas things home with me whenever I can. ;)
Well, like a trend in decorating or a fad of a collection (Pyrex that's you) this obsession does not waver!
Daily, I haunt websites to study new pieces for sale and to look at how they were made. Nightly, I dream of launching my own little line of ornaments that look like they came straight from your great grandma's attic.
I thought I'd start by just holding little sales on my blog and see what happens. I'll work it just like I've been doing my little "Market Monday's" since they have run so smoothly. And I think I'll have the first sale sometime shortly after Halloween.
So here's a peek at what's on my work table right now. The Santa on the left is from Japan and I found him at the flea market this summer. So he's my inspiration piece!
Mine won't be exact replicas because I can't seem to help adding glitter and glass to pieces that wouldn't have necessarily had it. And I try to incorporate as many vintage materials as I can into everything that I make. That's the most fun for me!
There will be Snowmen, and Candy Containers, Putz Houses, and more!
So anyway, I just wanted to let you know what I'm up to over here. I'm getting ready for Christmas! I'll keep you posted about what's on the table in the mean time.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
P.S Look what I found at Target tonight! This was the only section they had up so far. I picked up those cinnamon scented pinecones and took a big whiff! lol Not gonna lie...it made me happy!
