Here’s a fabulous display from one of my favorite dealers at last weekend’s Sage Farm “Dear Santa” show.
That’s a solid old mantel top with lots of molding, plus chippy paint in pale yellow and green. Comical red-hatted elves atop glass vases. “Peace” signs handpainted on old framed boards. Lots of greens.
And what’s that nailed up on the mantel?
An old wooden suit hanger in bright red! Wound with a string of vintage Christmas bulbs plus some tinselly sparkle and ribbon. And a cute little yellow elf glued securely on.
Do you love that as much as I do?
Today’s the last day for the Dear Santa show at the old Rollins building. We’ve sold a LOT but we still have plenty of vintage Christmas goodies:
True confession: I’ve never sold anything I’ve made. I hope that still isn’t true after the upcoming Dear Santa show at Sage Farm. I’ve got a small collection of Christmas wreaths about to make their public debut.
Have a look!
Not impressed? Well then how about this one?
Thank goodness this is a joint blog because Luray has been posting and posting while I have been glooping hot glue on lots of vintage stuff to make Christmas wreaths. I’ve got a baker’s dozen to send to Sage Farm next week for the December show.
Ready for the Big Reveal? Here’s wreath number one…
Hey, it’s still Thanksgiving, isn’t it?
At Lurayville there is still a lot of turkey in the fridge, along with apple-cranberry pie and pumpkin pie, so it’s still the holiday for us even though I’m going back to work today in the new-fallen snow.
We’re leaving our Thanksgiving decorations up, too. Which is easy, because there are only two of them: that melty plastic popcorn turkey, and this melty plastic popcorn Pilgrim boy.
