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?

If you were at the thrift store power-shopping through the linens rack that’s usually jammed with ugly modern comforters and floral curtains in weird colors, flipping the hangers fast because you’ve never seen anything worth getting on that rack, but you just never know. . . and then you spied this:
Would you make a noise that sounded like a startled elephant? And simultaneously lunge for the hanger this thing was on, just in case the person standing 20 feet away completely mesmerized by the moving electric Santa dolls decided to grab it instead?
Well, wouldja? Click to find out what *I* did!
Just a little more textile goodness from Sage FarmPosted: December 1, 2014 Filed under: Fun Finds, Sage Farm Comments Off on Just a little more textile goodness from Sage Farm
I can’t help myself. If it was textile-y at November’s Sage Farm show, I probably snapped a photo of it.
The same dealer who had the amazing Old Order Amish “Sunshine & Shadow” quilt also had this set of painted wooden “Color Cubes.” She didn’t think they were intended specifically for quilters, though. Instead, they were the equivalent of modern pattern blocks. My kids had a set of those and loved them! I can totally see a quilter playing around with these.
