11:00 P.M. Pacific Time

It's quite here tonight...
Except for the murmur of the T.V.
And I decided to get working on my
Vintage Inspired Christmas Goodies...

Now the only way to do that is to bring it all
out and start digging through 
the containers filled with Holiday Bits...

In fact my Studio now is a Total Mess...

I got a few of these Bottle Brush Trees
blinged up and ready to add to my Shop

I always decorate my trees with Vintage
mercury Ornaments
the authentic glass beads really
give them the Vintage Twist I love!

Now this is a before shot of a vintage
Tree Topper, the plastic type
so I really bought it to add some bling!
I'll share a photo of it when I'm done

This darling Lefton Bell Angel
 found the 2nd day of an Estate Sale
she had the hallo on the candle
broken off so I thought a couple
gold mercury beads would be just
the right touch to give her a 2nd life!

Well now it's closing in on 11:30 P.M.
so I think it's time to turn off the 
lights and shut down my Mac
(thank you Steve Jobs)
and go to bed...
Nite Nite~
Hugs & Kisses

I always enjoy seeing your special finds. I thought of you when thrifting the other day, wondering how you find all of those wonderful treasures you bring home. xo

Sandy said...

So many pretty things I just love to look at...but I am barely there for Halloween! I guess I am not a true sales person, I just can't make Christmas stuff months ahead...or fall...or Halloween....well, you get my drift! LOL

Happy Birthday Diane! I so love when you are getting your shop ready for Christmas. You put vintage together like no one's business! I must take a peek at the peanut bags to go along with my circus characters. Oh my gosh I can imagine the laugh when you saw so many. You couldn't leave them, thank goodness! Have a great weekend ahead! Elizabeth

I was thinking of you earlier this week because you inspired me to try decorating nut candy cups at Easter & I decided I need to buy red crepe paper for Christmas cups. Then I realized that I haven't stopped by in a long while! Hope you had a great summer & looking forward to come Christmas inspiration from you! I like the pink glitzy trees.
