Holiday Happiness…

The holidays are definitely a high point for me…watching my daughters soak in every detail of the festivities of the season…love it all!

Here is a layout of my mother’s gifts back in 1965…love how she so carefully set all her presents up outside to photograph. And love that I can see her “shadow” in the foreground as she captures the shot:

Using my ever-favorite polka-dot paper from the Family Fun collection, I added my own sequins, made from red foil and a couple of hole punches.  I added gorgeous tidbits, like this glitter-filled glassine envelope & pins, from the Sewing Room section of the VSM store.

My 2nd project for the month is a gingerbread-house card:

Using a Bingo Card, brown crepe, glitter, twirly twine, I whipped up this scrumptious holiday greeting.

I don’t know about you, but the holidays is definitely one of my favorite times to enjoy the nostalgic feeling of vintage ornaments and decor.  My kids and I love to discover “new” favorite items like this to add to our holiday home:

Wishing you a happy holiday and a delightful December!
