Christmas Past to ......PRESENT...for a friend.




When I found the red tinsel wreath  I knew just what I wanted to create.
The vintage felt ornaments I found in grab bags at my favorite thrift stores. 


I have been collecting what I thought was a vast array of vintage Christmas goodies for about 6 months.  Turns out not so vast.
I will be on the hunt for more goodies.
I love treasure hunting.


Once completed it is going to be a gift for a close friend.

Savannah and Robby's First Baby Shower


It all started with this darling vintage baby card.  Savannah and Robby loved the little elephant on top....so...vintage baby circus had to be the theme of their baby shower.


Last week was spent preparing for the shower.  Believe it or not I nearly talked the husband into a cotton candy machine.
And why not?
Makes total sense to me....wink..wink!!!
