Hello there! We did some decorating at the shoppe this week to get ready for the holidays. We obviously like the vintage and handmade, so that is what we used...
like vintage skates on the front door....
and a whole bunch of vintage inside!
We picked up these vintage pants stretchers ages ago because we liked them. We had no idea how we were going to use them. The Mr played around with them the other day and made a HUGE snowflake with a banner.
I am having a hard time saying goodbye to these sweet little fawns
I have the fence awnings on 2 windows, so on a whim I decided to wrap a frame in fairy lights for a little bit of whimsy.
The Santa masks were handpainted by the Mr and were inspired by one that his dad had when he was little.
I knew I had more ornaments than branches so I attempted to chalk a tree... then I called in the pro and then I simply placed carpet tacks to display some of our favorites.
I adore the colors and shape of vintage ornaments! They really don't make them like they used to...
This year we decided to create our own recycled gift wrap line. The Mr hand lettered some designs and hand stamped them on some paper.
He also carved some blocks to create a few festive cards.
We got our aluminum tree early last spring and the little man and I were super excited to put it up finally!
It is hard to choose favorites, but this sweet little snowman is perfect!
I always seem to have extra tissue paper decorations around from various things, so I used some with paper snowflakes, of course.
We used a vintage quilt with a pleasing patchwork design as a tree skirt. The Mr. designed a little Vintage Junky christmas logo for my bags and gift boxes and snowflake bags.
and they look pretty sweet all nestled inside.
So, now that the shoppe is all ready for Christmas it is time to go get the house ready this week.
bye for now~
