Shopping at Macy's

Diane's Etsy shop, Saturday Finds, is my go to place for crafts featuring the holiday images I so love from days gone by.

There are so many vintage things I would not know about if it were not for Diane's use of them in creating the most adorable crafts. My Cute as Can Be Mr.Snowman would not be wearing his dapper red ice cream hat

if I had not purchased one of Diane's St. Charles Elf Cups. I absolutely adore him and can't wait to display him again this year.

The Queen of Pink has definitely influenced my color pallet for this year's holiday fare. My vintage inspired snowman wears pink and blue as he stand in line to meet Mr. North Pole.

Oh, now these shoppers are, as Vivian would say, "too stinkin' cute" for words! It looks as though their front doors will be decorated ever so ringingly.

Lest I give you the wrong impression, Diane does dabble in the traditional reds and greens that I so love. I am adding one of these cute kittens to my Must Have List. They are just so mE!

I know I will bore you to tears with with Christmas before the temperatures even drop below 70*, but I just had to share these wonderful characters that are appearing before me in my beloved craft room.

There are so many of you whose style is now reflected in my own art that I hope now speaks as my own. I strive to have a very simple style that reflects my own personality with just a hint of all that sparkles to reflect the women who shine so brightly in my eyes.

Please do not Pin pattern to Pinterest.
