I'm going to take just a second to share here. I think it's just Wrong to do a search with the word 'vintage' , and get 1,477 pages of items from the 70's. There is a difference between 'vintage' and 'retro' and what's more I was around for the 70's - they weren't that great the first time. I vividly remember that jumpsuit. It is burned into my brain , and one of the very few things that make banging my head against a wall to get it OUT sound almost appealing.
That's all I'm going to say.

I would like to give Lesley a heartfelt thank you for featuring my blog on hers yesterday. She said some truly wonderful things , but what really touched me was her generosity of spirit. She has spent a considerable amount of time looking for and sharing various art blogs and Etsy sites with her readers , while overcoming challenges of her own - 'to step outside myself and be giving to others' was how she phrased it. So rather than saying 'thank you for featuring me on your blog' , I'd like to say 'thank you for sharing a bit of yourself with us'. It's not every day that someone just reaches out and gives a gift , but it is very much appreciated.
I know when to count my blessings *S*.
Lesley , by the by , is a talented artist herself , which you probably already knew - but if you haven't seen her work , please click right here. I can prove it , lol.
The little postcard is for you to play with if you'd like to. And they're Boys - a bit harder to find than girls , at least for me!
Enjoy , and Merry Christmas everyone.

So I stopped by Lesley's blog Flatwoods Folkart this morning , and she has this very nifty feature called Monday's Musings - she hunts down particularly cool Etsy shops , apparently just for me *shamefaced grin*. She may have found a few you might like too , so check her blog out yourself. Of course if you don't , that just means more for ME lol (do I sound acquisitve? because I'm feeling acquistive let me tell ya lol). Now several of these shops were already on my radar , but there were a couple I'd missed and they were reallly cooool. . .
From Deciduous Soul Love this - can't think of much it wouldn't look fabulous on...
Love this too , found it at Bayou Salvage. Lace is Good. More is Better.
From A Joy To Be Held , soon to be hanging on my old door. . .
from Funkyshique a sweet little hanger for oh pretty much anywhere. . .
From Savage Salvage - this is going to live on my charoal tweed coat this year.
Also from Funkyshique , and also matches my coat lol. . .
Ladies , there's lots more left at these shops so DO go check them out - and stop by Lesley's blog to say thank you for hunting them down for us too , would you?
p.s. honey if you're reading this I didn't spend any money it was all free. luv you.
edit: shortly after posting this I received an email from my husband -
As I was perusing your blog today I found this little tidbit:
“p.s. honey if you're reading this I didn't spend any money it was all free. luv you.”
Thanks ….. free is nice. ;)
lol. he's so cute when he believes me ;o)

The Quill Cottage has written up several tutorials on some wonderful little ornaments and packaging for our Christmas tree's - please follow the link and see all the goodness she's shared! I love ornaments like this - I don't know if anyone knows this , but I really love vintage flavor - and these ornaments were exactly what I wanted to add to my tree.
One must have new ornaments every year , you know.
Merry Christmas to me , Merry Christmas to me la lala lala. . .
