2009 Mini Tree

Despite being super busy trying to prepare for my first craft show coming up this Saturday, I managed to squeeze in a little holiday decorating!I was so excited to decorate my mini tree this year, as I've thrifted some fantastic ornaments this past summer. I opted to use mostly all vintage ornaments, with a handful of new favorites and lots of pixie elves. I love pixie elves! My Grandmother had a pixie elf that she uses to sit atop a reindeer every year in her kitchen and a few years ago, she gave the elf to me. I just adore him! I want to start a collection (I know, ANOTHER collection) and am well on my way!Like last year, I stuck some vintage corsages into the top of the tree to kind of build my own topper, and unlike last year, I stuck a vintage angel on the very top that was found in a box of my Great-Grandmother's things. She doesn't seem to work. But, I still find her very lovely.
We received our first significant snowfall here the other day...blah! Winter is here! It makes me itch for yard sale/flea market/thrift season! I can't wait! I haven't been thrifting since September and I miss it. I did make a trip to Goodwill at the end of October (I hadn't been since June before that) and I found a few things, which I had forgotten to show before...I haven't been back to Goodwill since, however. I'd like to, but I try not to when I don't have the extra money. My favorite local Goowill has really increased their prices too. Some things I found the last time I might have picked up, but they were so pricey and I refuse to pay high prices at Goodwill.

In other news, all 2009 Button Wreath Ornaments have been listed in the shop. If you've had your eye on one, I recommend getting it quickly, as they've been selling fast and come this weekend, I'll be taking them to the craft show with me. Here's some of what's still in shop:That's all for now. Off to do some more craft show preparation!

The craft show went well for my first time! I thought I wasn't going with enough and it turns out I had MUCH more than I needed...I couldn't even fit it all on my table, haha. Thanks for asking, Fauve! Hope you're well! :)

Hi Krista! I'm still here! I was just thinking the other day that I hadn't posted in forever...plan to do that soon, but right now I'm nursing a head cold, so once that goes away, hopefully the blogging will be back in full force, especially since the crazy holidays are over! Thanks for the concern!
