ANTICIPATING........


Treadmills
No, I am not rushing the season.......but......in order to have the supplies when I need them, I must start early collecting. For the past 5 months I have been on a quest to find vintage silver, pink and teal Christmas ornaments. Last year on SOMEONE'S BLOG.....I saw this gorgeous huge wreath made of nothing but vintage ornaments. There wasn't even a bow, just ornaments of various sizes! Well, I have been picking up one or two at a time at garage sales and malls. Then I went to ebay and purchased several boxes....not knowing really what I was getting. THEN, I hit the jackpot! Last week-end there was the annual Lafayette House Tour and Antique show. One of the vendors had been rained on the day before and was willing to give me an entire box of ornaments (that he thought were ruined......not me) for $1.00.............. Well, I grabbed those puppies and ran....wouldn't you? Here is a collage of what I have so far! If anyone else saw that blog where the woman had hung her beautiful wreath on a huge mirror with a gallery type frame on it! I have tried without any results to find her site again.....but No Luck:( If you can help I would really appreciate. I believe the woman is a grandma and showed posts baking cookies with her grandkids. I am hoping that someone can set me on the right track...............

Good morning. Sis Boom had one. I am not finding the more plain one you are talking about but I am sure it is there. Pam Garrison also has a great one in her December archives.

Hello! Do you need more? I have literally hundreds of vintage ornaments--I will check to see if I have any pink, silver or turquoise ones. Do you want any other colors?? Just let me know.
