Pa rum pa pum pum

These guys sat on top of my mom's gift this year. Why? Well, she's never been a fan of The Little Drummer Boy song. And as you can see, the fellow on the right isn't either.

I found them at an estate sale recently and knew just where they needed to go. I'm so glad I have a mom who completely got and appreciated such a gift topper. We have always enjoyed handmade vintage Christmas people like these guys.

Oh, and what was inside the gift? This lovely creature from Bossysfeltworks. Isn't he sweet?

The Perfect Home

That little church went from my shop to this wonderful place. I think it's safe to say that it found the perfect home. I love it when that happens- and I think it usually does. I'm so glad Dawn showed me this picture.

Be sure to take a look at the other pictures from her home. They are just so beautiful and peaceful. Don't you just want to go curl up on that sofa right now?
Oh, and also, check out Dawn's shop: Kiki La Ru (temporarily closed for the holidays). She is the maker of (the original) cake bunting. Aren't they darling? If I could go back in time, I'd put one on my wedding cake.

Tick Tock...

I went to an antique mall last week and walked out with these 2 items. I sat them down side by side when I got home and laughed. Is someone trying to tell me something?
Maybe instead of hunting around at antique malls I should be Christmas shopping. After all, 2 weeks from today, that timer with go BUZZZZ and I had better be ready! I'm avoiding the real mall at all costs though. Are you ready?

Flea Finds

My local Flea Market has been OH SO good lately. These are just a few of my finds from today!
