Hello Friends! Hope you're all doing well. Actually, I know a couple gals who aren't doing too well :(
So before I dive right into the unimportant vintage stuff, I wanted to mention them.
Debbie of My Vintage Daydreams is a sweetheart. She could really use some thoughts and prayers for her little boy right now. And Leslie of Brook Hollow Lane and Sally of Sally Annie Magundy BOTH had to say goodbye to their dogs this week. I know that's one of the most heartbreaking things ever. I'm thinking about each of these women tonight, and I was hoping that (if you haven't already) you might stop by and wish them well.
I've been in this cast for 4 weeks. I'm trying to be happy that I've accomplished that...but I still have 8 weeks ahead of me!!! Ahhhh! The good news is that I was able to take my arthritis meds this week. Now I should be able to use my hands and start making some things at my art table. Now here is what I have been doing to make myself feel a little better in the mean time...BUYING X-MAS STUFF ONLINE! Haaa! I couldn't help it! It's sooo darn tempting when you're stuck on the couch!
I bought this card on EBay. I have a collection of Snowman cards that I'll show you soon.
Look at the inside! It was from Al, their MILK MAN! Isn't that cute???
Next came these huge vintage address labels. The kind seller included the "Sno Foolin" card!
I "WON" these seals on EBay for $7.99. I have tons of little x-mas seals, but these are different because they're huge! The felted girl in the middle is the size of my palm.
Soon I'll get some of the best ones scanned and posted so you guys can print them!
OK, I have an addiction to spun cotton snowmen. But not just any of them...specificly this style! Seriously, if you are reading this and happen to have some that you'd like to sell, let me know. :)
I told Laurie of Magpie Ethel that this Santa (which will be great on a big wreath) and the lights below, are kind of her fault! Hee Hee! I spent one whole evening just looking at all of the vintage x-mas on her blog. Did you know that she has so much stuff that you can actually spend hours looking at her blog? She is the queen of holiday vintage!
So the next day I had my mom take me (knee scooter and all) to Annie's! I had Vintage Christmas on the mind. Annie and the girls hadn't displayed any x-mas yet, but I did manage to find this great old box of lights and the Santa head! The lights were only $7.50 and I love those graphics.
I wanted to apologize for not being good about replying to comments and emails lately! My hands have been so swollen and sore that I have stayed away from typing. But now I think it's all good!
Noel wanted to say Hi today. I think I've told you before that she carries a pool ball with her wherever she goes. That's my crazy girl! :)
We are linking up with Sue for REDNESDAY today!
