More Christmas goodness ~

Look at what came in the mail today ~ a pure random act of kindness!!! The most wonderful bird tags were gifted to me from Sandy in Texas....she's a customer of mine and said that she knew when she bought them that they needed to be mine! What a precious soul ~ dear Sandy, thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and you KNOW that I love them!!!! Wishing you many blessings ~ Sandy is Mandy's mom ~ Mandy's blog is Wish on a Whisker and I just love Mandy's taste. Very vintagy!

I'm such a goober! I remembered today to go into my art room and get the Christmas ornaments that I made for Somerset Life and hang them on our tree! The rag ball and the mitten ornament tutorials are in my side bar too if you'd like to take a look at how I make them. They are both so easy and look great on the tree!

I've been asked several times about the stamps that I used on the tags of the rag balls in the magazine. I purchased them at Michael's craft store last Christmas. They were on an end cap and were with a bunch of other Christmas stamps. I've looked them over and haven't seen any name brands on them but here is a photograph of them if you are trying to hunt them down ~

A sweet vintage image for your artwork, cards or tags.....this bird is just precious!!

I am loving seeing all of the information and inspiration on everyone's blogs!! This time of year there always seems to be an abundance of creativity and the beauty of the blogging is that so much information is shared....that's the most wonderful thing of all. The sharing.
Wishing you a great Friday sweet friends!
xxoo, Dawn

What wonderful ornaments to grace your tree. You are right...the season seems to bring out the sweet goodness of everyone and their creativity soars.

Vee said...

Yup, you have the best friends! I love that little vintage mitten that you've made and hung on your tree. I looked for inexpensive sweaters with hems like that earlier in the week, but without any luck. Perhaps I should go look in mother's attic. :D

My Feathered Nest folder is getting full of fantastic images...thank you!

I often feel the same way about 2nd hand shopping ...that I'm looking for the stuff that nobody else wants.'s way more fun that way

Ohhh what a wonderfully magical feel your home has with all of its beautiful decorations and special touches you have made for it. You have a truly gifted son too to make the tree look soooo dreamy.
Happy holidays my dear friend. I am thinking of you across the miles and wishing we were closer.
Warmest best wishes
