|I'm linking up with Debra over at CommonGround today with her Vintage Inspiration Friday.|
|This is a vignette in a corner of my living room that is surrounded by windows. The little deer are plastic and last year I used silver glass glitter on them...now they're so much prettier! And they seem to like their new home...:)|
|These glittered houses were purchased at Home Goods last year (or was it the year before?) and they came with the frosty trees already attached...|
|The rest of the trees are ones I bleached last year....didn't care for the bright green.|
So even though most items aren't "vintage" except for the deer, at least the whole vignette has a vintage vibe to it......hop on over to Debra's and check out everyone else's stunning decor, won't you?

|These sit on my foyer table...I love the old chalkware statues and the lovely candle was a gift.....it looks fabulous when lit!|
|I love my snowmen and snowwomen, part Christmas and part Winter, I can leave them up until Valentines day! (Does that make me lazy?)|
|I found a bunch of these signs last year after Christmas so I saved major $$$$, I was happy...:)|
|A sweet Etsy find.....very old and very pretty.|
|My favorite Christmas scent...it's called 'Cathedral' and it's "heavenly".|
It pretty much sums up Christmas for me.
|Just had to incorporate some old books into my display...|
Have you started decorating yet?

|So I was visiting Shari's website Plays with Paper (don't you just love that name?) and she had just introduced these darling little doll necklaces.|
|I saw them and wanted one...I mean REALLY had to have one, you know?|
|Someone else left a comment on her blog that SHE wanted the doll...rats!|
|This is her back, finished in every detail, just stunningly cute!|
|So I did what any rabid fan would do, I emailed Shari and she said that she would be happy to make me a custom doll. My heart was happy.|
|Shari also included this darling Thank You card that she created. Yeah, that's another thing beyond my realm!|
|And check out this sweet little frozen charlotte she included with my package. I was thrilled to see this because I've only ever seen these on other's blogs or shops, never owned one of my own.|
Shari, I can't thank you enough for making me my own special doll necklace.
If you've never been to playswithpaper
well, you must go see Shari's creations! You won't be disappointed..:)
Plus, she's having a giveaway....hurry!

|Of course I had to use my favorite fabric for the skirts. I also used german glass glitter and velvet leaves for their wings. They now reside in my Etsy shop...:).|
I'll be back soon to share the most amazing package I received in the mail today. Hope you all have a lovely evening!
These both sold, thanks so much!!!

|And then I spied this beauty...25"x25", huge and cushy. LOVE it.|
|In other news, I've been trying to create every day, some days big things, other days little ones, like these glittery birds. Using the above items...(don't you just love Twinklets? How can you not love something called Twinklets?)|
|Voila, my thrifted birds, which were kinda brightly colored for my taste (but the price was certainly right! Have you seen how much these cost at Michael's? It's a crime I tell ya).|
|Much prettier, don't you think?|
|This is how they started out...pretty, but bright. I like how they sparkle now and the colors are a lot more subdued.|
So don't pass up those birds while thrifting, they can be made pretty with very little effort.
What will you make prettier today?

Nerd that I am, I took it to bed with me so I could just enjoy the pictures. Maybe if I read it enough some of it will rub off on me?
Oh, if only.....
