Thank you all so much for your kind words regarding the magazine. And yes peeps around town do keep volunteering to slap me (thanks Sis). And well, now my mind is a whirl with Christmas ideas and colors.
Every year, about this time, I drive Sister crazy. (For those that don't know, she's not my REAL Sister...just my BFF and shop/booth partner). Yep, I drive her nuts, cause I get one color combo stuck in my head and that is what I like to do for Christmas.
Last year it was pink, brown and red with a dash of gold! Very vintage and elegant.
And the year before that, very daring indeed. We went with Black and Silver for Christmas. Yeah, I know, some thought we were out there. But seeing as how Curious Sofa is doing this this year, well, we are actually feeling a little smug about it now. Hee, hee hee. Yeah.
All of this leads me to THIS year. Do you really want to know what is in my head? Probably not. But too bad. Here it is:
Color! Glorious Color! Saturated, carnival fun, color.
I stumbled upon this Mother Lode of vintage Christmas goodies at an Estate Sale on Thursday. Well, not literally...cause then I would have broke em. But there they were in bags. On a shelf. I won't tell you the price, cause it was dirt cheap and you would cry like a little girl. Yep. You would.
But I think I spotted em cause for days now, "this" has been stuck in my head.
Isn't it fun?
And I know I'm not doing anything new. Heck, I've seen it here and oh, it's wonderful here. And exceptionally wonderful here. But I think when I saw it all here. well, it just congealed in my head. And now it won't leave.
I don't know...we will see. I'm thinking candy canes and birdies. Paper lanterns and cotton candy. Asian emblems and Christmas tinsel. We will just have to see how it all works out. I'm sure Sis will be thrilled. Not. At the very least, well, we might just re-visit black and silver. LOL.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
