Christmas Themed Displays using ViNtaGe F*I*N*D*S...


*~ ViNtaGe ~*
20th Anniversary
 ICE FOLLIES PIN/BROOCH
Dating *1956*
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...





 PeRfeCtLY ChiPPy!*!*!
Re-Purposed Naturally Time-Worn Swivel Stool Base
becomes Christmas Tree Stand!*!*!
BeSt-Ever!*!*!

FOLLOWING YOUR HEART...
BUY-WHAT-YOU-LoVe!*!*!
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!*!*!
OMG!!!



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 - 
IT"S GONE!*!*!
AGAIN - I FOLLOWED MY HEART...
BUY-WHAT-YOU-LOVE FIRST
Ideas will follow...



It isn't even Christmas yet, and I have Cabin Fever!*!*!
Cold... Snowy...  I've been in ALL-DAY...
