A Christmas Fair
With all good intentions, I originally had planned to have you come along with me to my favorite antiquing place to see their annual Holiday Open House, not to mention the fabulous foods they always serve.....not your average cookies and punch affair I can tell you. I was giddy with the thought of showing you some pretty neat stuff and don't you know I got ready to snap the first photo and the darn camera battery was dead. I said, "oh shoot" so loud that several people turned to look at me. :) So change of plan. I'll just have my own fair and show you what Christmas items I have in the boutique on the Twisted Threads page. I have so much fun making custom gift tags. These tags are large and make a pretty sweet gift all by themselves. I use a lot of my antique post cards, copied, and then embellished with real pressed flowers, vintage seam binding, bits of old jewelry, bells, fur, feathers, glitter, German Dresden and just all kinds of things to make each tag unique. A lot of them have already sold and will be under someone's Christmas tree soon.
Another thing I have been making and just love, are paper flowers and roses (thanks to Miss Priss). These too look absolutely charming as a topper on a gift package. Some are made from tissue and others are made from vintage sheet music or old dictionary pages. Some I embellish and others I leave as is.
Thank you for stopping by today and thank you Kreative Karen of A Scrapbook of Inspiration for hosting this wonderful inspirational event. Click here for a whole list of participants. Before you go don't forget to get your plate of Christmas cookies I made just for you. They are my favorite holiday cookie.....wedding cookies. Bye now. I will see you over at Karen's.
