|Our Vintage ornament tree we have in Galena, IL|
The last day of November 2012…*sigh*
Where has this year gone? I can honestly say that the only thing I remember from this past month is the Election and the day I stuffed myself full with that “big meal.” Now, if I can only get these silly Kmart television ads out of my head, I’ll be good! Have you seen the Old Navy commercial featuring the Griswold’s? Hilarious! If you can spare thirty two seconds, click here and laugh with me. How can you not Love Clark?
How are you doing with your Christmas shopping? I’m happy to report that I’m actually farther along than usual. Most of my gifts are handmade this year. With that comes time. Meaning each gift takes a little bit longer than walking into the store and choosing something off the shelf. But it’s what I call “fun time.” No complaints because I’m enjoying every minute of it!
Today’s theme for the Top 10 List is Vintage Holiday Decor. I get a kick out of listening to customers comments about what they discover in a our shop as they stroll the aisles. “I had this when I was little.” “Grandma gave us them for our tree.” “OMG, I forgot all about those!” And the comments go on and on.
Each item comes from several adorable Vintage shops on Etsy.com and are priced at $25. and under. I was easily distracted by all the goodies each and every shop has available.
