Lots of festive loveliness...

Hello festive crafters...
Do you remember a couple of posts ago when I mentioned the lovely shop
Berry Red
Well friends, now that The Tearoom is looking festive,
I thought it would be nice to show you the items that I purchased
 which arrived so prettily wrapped....Christmas came early!
The vintage style wooden blocks above are lovely and will mix well
with our very old wooden tree base which has survived through the generations...
I love these spotty pegs and I am going to make a card hanger
 along with some jute cord or satin ribbon and hang it in the kitchen.
These vintage style gift tags come in different sizes.
 The larger tags are ideal if you want to add a special message
(I am usually trying to squeeze my message onto a tiny tag!)
They arrive in a lovely vintage style tin.
....and these wooden reindeers will
be taking pride of place above our fireplace
along with some festive lights!

Hope you like the Christmas decorations around The Tearoom!
Are you feeling festive yet?
I would love to hear about your preparations..

Happy festive crafting....!

  6. Hello Catherine,
    Thank you for the lovely comments.
    You should be able to find some pretty vintage dolls cardigans on the auction sites. I am working this one out as I go along as it is for a doll I am making and I have something definite in mind!

  8. Hi Susan, your Christmas preps are looking fabulous, love the reindeers and the pegs, well in fact, I love everything. I did a makeover on the kitchen a few weeks ago and had Christmas in mind. We have Thanksgiving tomorrow and Sinterklaas the first weekend in December (that comes from having an intercultural family-American and Belgian as well as Irish) so lots to do and get ready still. Hugs, Margie.
