Christmas and Craftiness

Well, I've been sick all week.  I did manage to wander into that same little thrift that let me dig in their Christmas stuff.  My son forgot his Clarinet and it's right by the school...I went in orange Crocs, sweats and a hat.  Nice.  They had everything 1/2 for Christmas so I found some more vintage Christmas at about 25 cents a piece! 

I love this made in Japan snowman vase!

Since I was home and feeling to yucky to do much, I did something I haven't done in along time.  I got crafty.  I just used what I had on hand in the vintage crafty department.  I just came up with some ornaments.

These are old post cards and cards. 

I cut and embellished them

I used the old writing for the backing

These were little picks, and the puffballs off my daughters socks

I need to get some ribbon for hangers on these block ornaments.  I put in the screw on hooks for that behind the embellishments

Good ole Costco blew up some google pics for me to frame.  And the top one is an old towel my grandma made years ago.
I checked out this from the library...

How I would love to find any of these!  I don't see snowmen much.  I prefer them to Santa.  I also love angels, but they are easy to find.
I hope to be better next week so I can get out there and look more !
Linking Up!

I would leave the house in my PJ's too if I knew I would find vintage Christmas! Love your sweet, crafty ideas. Good for you for taking the time to do a little holiday crafting. I'm hoping to start some tomorrow.

Hope you feel better!



Hope you are feeling better! Sweet little finds and how fun to craft. I enjoy using old blocks for crafts.

Sure hope you are feeling better! I had a flue bug a couple weeks ago. Not fun! You created some super cute vintage ornaments. I am looking for more smalls. Love creating with them! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
