Holiday French Market...

I had the most fun this weekend with Mom at the Holiday Market, I thought I would share with you some of the great items I picked up for my home. I love sparkly things and actually had to go back a second time to look at everything!

Everything is vintage sheet music and glittered with german glass like these cute little jingle bells. I am using them for one of my trees (pictures will come soon). I tied mine with hand dyed and scented seem binding ribbon in the color scheme I wanted this year.

 I am addicted to Bottle Brush Trees so... the collection grew again this year!

I got a new vintage pine tree this year, so of course I am in need of new ornaments! These are adorable glittered glass owl ornaments. They are a reproduction not vintage but you can't really tell. I did pick up some more glass owls for my tree and will share those next blog!

I think one of things I love most about this quant little holiday market was the attention to detail. The displays were mesmeriszing not to mention the boxed lunch! One a terrific and very old fashioned idea. You could buy a pink boxed lunch, which consited of a yummy 1/2 sandwich, cup of soup (it was chilly out) and chips. All done up in a pink cake box, I loved this. Nothing like a little lunch after all that shopping! I'll be back to share the pictures of my home and more new treasures I found this time around!

Happy Holidays and Joyous Noel!

I'll Have a Blue Christmas...

A little sparkle, a little teal and silver and a little vintage Christmas has inspired to me to create my first set of holiday ornaments for this season. Its time for the fuzzy socks, sweaters and hot cocoa. I am now in the mood for a little Bing Crosby, and its time to pack away the Hallow's Eve ornaments and make way for Frosty and Santa. I love Christmas and its so much more exciting with little ones. I am hoping to keep them little for a while at least. Im not sure what my next venture will be, I think more sparkle and more snowy themes. Until then here is a few photos of the ornaments. Enjoy!

New offerings up this week in my etsy shop so take a peek and let me know what you think. Foolish Notions on Etsy

Happy Holidays!

I will be donating a dollar from each sale of my Twilight related art! Your purchase helps me to help them! Even if your not a Twilight fan, the Inn is a historic landmark rich in history.
