This little red shovel handle is another thing I brought to our booth at Antiques Downtown. The snowman buttons are on magnets...it would be a fun place to display a photo of some "real" snow playing kiddos too. No snow here in MN yet...but maybe soon?? I LOVE the first snow...especially in time for the holidays. I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week! I am doing the decorating for a "Redeeming the Season" event at church tonight...so I am in "the mood" for the festivities to begin. How about you??
Speaking of "festivities"... Did you hear about the next Junkers United party? Save the Date...December 2nd will be here before you know it. A few more bloggers have joined in the fun!! Be sure to get your own Christmas junk ready for the link party!!
Sorry I have been MIA again this week...still busy decorating and creating. I LOVE this time of year...and for me it's not just a matter of opening some bins and putting stuff out. I like to use things I have and create a new look each year. Time consuming...but for me it's a little piece of Heaven on earth. Really.
And since I'm not ready for a "reveal" of what I've been working on here...I thought I'd show you something else I made for our booth at Antiques Downtown...
I bought this empty shell of a lantern at an occasional sale...
We added Christmas to our booth at Antiques Downtown last week...so that got me going.
We decided on a "Christmas Trees for Sale" theme...so I've been focusing on re-purposed tree ideas.
(These are just a couple of quick pictures I took with my phone. We plan to go back and add some twinkle lights...so I'll take better pictures then to show you more.)
And now everything is starting to look like a "tree"...including this old post card holder.
I just tied on some twine in a tree shape...top to bottom.
Added some keys and buttons for "ornaments".
And of course you need a pretty "topper".
Just add photos or cards and you've got yourself a conversation piece for the Holidays.
So how about you...ready to get started on Christmas?? Before blogging I always waited until the weekend after Thanksgiving. But since I'm already in the "spirit" and I don't entertain for Thanksgiving...I'm thinking I might as well get started. Then I can enjoy it for the whole month of December :)
