Happy belated Thansgiving!


I hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving - we had a nice and quiet day. We all ate too much and then relaxed all day. The boys got out my tree for me and today we have been doing a little bit of decorating.

My holiday decorating style is mostly vintage treasures found throughout my years of flea marketing.




these are some lovely mercury glass beads and a wreath that i bartered with my friend, Cheryl for. it has a Charlotte doll on it and while i have plenty of those dolls, this doll is very pretty! (don't mind Gracie's tennis ball in the picture!)

this is a manzanita branch that i cemented inside this green pot. i put it on my table and then hung a variety of vintage items from it. it is very hodepodey, but yet, looks simple and charming. it was hard to photograph in front of the window, but i think you get the gist. You could do something similar with a branch from the yard. It's great for areas that need something.....

tomorrow i will post another easy holiday decorating project

this is my Al-Turn-A-Tree (think alternative....) - She's a cute doll that i rescued from the flea market (well, i think she's cute!) and i assembled her into a tomato cage which i decorated with all vintage items. I know some people find these dolls creepy, but she really looks very pretty all lit up in her glory! i have her in my studio.

I'm still working on my big tree, so i'll post pics of that later!
