Christmas is Coming!

This time of year, with our workshop in full swing and supplies all over the place, I start to get super excited about Christmas. How I'll decorate, when I'll do it, where the tree will go, and what gifts I'll make are all on my mind. I wanted to share a few of my favorite Christmas supplies with you, just in case you're also thinking Christmas.

Above, vintage mercury glass beaded garlands are a staple on my trees.

Above we have Dresden flowers, a vintage holiday pick from Japan with the most beautiful composite berries and a group of blown glass Czech beads.

Next are three of my very favorite sheets of Santa scraps.

Last but not least, we have a group of spun cotton mushrooms from Germany, a trio of multicolored bottle brush trees and lustrous embossed foil trim that looks so gorgeous lining shelves or on a mantel.


  1. Wonderful treasures, so much fun to add a few more vintage treasures each year!

  2. It's beginning to look a LOT like Christmas here! ;o) Love the glass garlands...very Xmas! :o) Happy Days, Amanda ((HUGS))

  3. Now I don't feel so bad! I have been picking up things with chrstmas projects in mind a lot lately. It is such a good time of the yea to get Christmas things. Everyone is clearing out ther garages, attics and basements and having yard sales!
