Christmas Themed Displays using ViNtaGe F*I*N*D*S...
*~ ViNtaGe ~*
ICE FOLLIES PIN/BROOCH
ORIGINAL PACKAGING - Made In USA...
Besides the item pictured above, I have yet another
Ice Follies Pin that was "gifted" to me as a child -
from a CHICAGO performance - in the early "1960's"
A very treasured remembrance!*!*!
I just love that I found the pin above
on it's original card...
These BiRd Cut-Outs may be newly made,
but the "Musical Note Paper" - IS ViNtaGe!*!*!
A little clear glitter was added - for HoLiDay SparkLe...
Re-Purposed Naturally Time-Worn Swivel Stool Base
becomes Christmas Tree Stand!*!*!
FOLLOWING YOUR HEART...
I saw this item at the Allegan Flea Market this past summer...
Being Vintage, Naturally Perfectly Chippy-White, along with
Great Form, it tugged at my heart strings...
BUT I HAD NO IDEA
WHAT TO DO WITH IT!*!*!
The Dealer made a few suggestions -
one being a TREE STAND... Good Idea, but there was
No Way a Tree Shaft was going to fit in this Small Hole that
could not get any bigger...
FOLLOWING MY HEART ~ It Came Home with me...
A couple Kane County Flea Markets ago - I bought THIS WHITE TREE from Judy of the Iowa Junk Gypsies... Removing the tree's burlap-wrapped base - revealed a plastic stand which also came off - only to reveal a small metal rod - which fit PERFECTLY into the Chippy-White Stand!*!*!
Netted from Kristen's Booth
At Elkhorn's last Flea of 2013,
I initially passed up this AwESoMe
Wire Basket during Dealer Set-Up, -but it still
kept calling to me...
Soooo thrilled that it was still there early the next morning!!!
MOST times if you think too long -
AGAIN - I FOLLOWED MY HEART...
Ideas will follow...
It isn't even Christmas yet, and I have Cabin Fever!*!*!
Cold... Snowy... I've been in ALL-DAY...
