It seems that us big girls, still like to play with our "toys". Santa came early to my house this year, and brought me another toy stove like I had as a little girl! I couldn't wait to start decorating with it. I am feeling a retro Christmas this year, in my dining room and kitchen. I will also still love my pinks too, but this year I was just loving this look.
These little things I found at garage sales for like .25 and .50 cents.
The pixies came out to play too! I found the sweetest little cookie cutters in Hobby Lobby. The gingerbread girl is needlepoint, made by my dear mother-in-love. I have several of those on my fridge. I found the glass oranments at my local thrift for .69 and another 25% off! Score!!
This retro decoration was found at flea market. I did a swap of some pinecones with sweet Tammy over at Tammy's in Love, and she sent me these adorable little hang tags. I love them! I actually had some of this retro garland way back when, and I got rid of it. Boo Hoo. Now, what the girls are doing, is making these pretty tags, out of vintage cards, and scrapbook embelishments, then hang them from this garland. Check this one out over at http://creativebreathing.blogspot.com/2012/12/merry-bright-garland-tutorial.html She is so creative, and I can't stop looking at it. It's almost like a charm necklace, that you just keep adding to.
