A Few Christmas Peeks

A new home is always exciting and fun to decorate for Christmas and to be honest, I was pulling out my Christmas decor before Thanksgiving.  I really needed to take stock of what Christmas decor I still had after the big move, but I couldn't resist putting a few things out.  I was sad to see that all of my wreaths that I used on the outside of my previous home didn't make it.  I don't remember donating them, but when the moving truck was filling quickly, I had to be picky about what went in.  Darn, I had big plans for those... maybe next year.  I've feel like I've been knee-deep in pine needles, glitter, and Rubbermaid totes for the past few days, but I only have a few little areas to finish up and I'll be done!  Here's a bit of what I've been working on:

A Great Day with Miss Mustard Seed and Fellow Bloggers

I've always been so inspired by Miss Mustard Seed.  Not only is she amazingly talented, but her blog is so authentic and a joy to read, so when she put the call out to do some shopping and socializing in Raleigh this weekend, I was so excited to have the opportunity to meet her and some fellow creative women from the area.

My Favorite Collection Ever

As I've slowly been settling into our new house by unpacking, painting, and moving furniture around, but there is one box that has remained unpacked though it's contents are my favorite collection ever.  I actually didn't trust putting the box in the big U-haul truck, so it rode with me all across the 3,000 miles it took to get here... Until this past week, these guys have just been waiting for me to unpack!

Vintage Show Love

When my husband and I were deciding to take the plunge and move across the country for his new job, a big factor for me was that I would be missing so many incredible vintage and antique shows that are a part of the Pacific Northwest.  Since The Farm Chicks Show began several years ago, the Pacific Northwest has become a mecca for these incredible shows.  I knew that I would miss them.... a lot!   Sure enough, now that I'm mostly settled in the new house, I'm pining to be a part of the shows again and I certainly miss all my wonderful and talented friends that pour their hearts into these shows, like Jennifer and Kathy Walker of Unexpected Necessities.  This mother and daughter team have their annual show this weekend in Nine Mile Falls, WA.  Even though I won't be able to be there, I'm living a little vicariously through my oh-so-talented mom and step-dad of Angel's Attic right now.  As they've been getting ready for the first show in which we haven't shared a booth, they've shared some of their projects and I'm in love...
