First, a Mommas got to brag! Right now, at this very moment, my baby girl is singing at her very first performance in China at Tianjin University! If you missed what she is doing in China, please visit my post from Sunday.
My first RED, JOLLY share for today is my new bloggy look! Don't you love it! It was so easy to do, in fact, I'm amazed how easy it was. I got the design here, at Lee Lou's. She has the easiest directions to follow.
Next I wanted to share these JOLLY, RED, VINTAGE Salt and Pepper shakers.
My Mom bought these in the early 70's and as you can see from the worn off paint, they were used at every meal during Christmas. I love their little pudgy faces! The table cloth is also vintage and belonged to my mom.
And finally, a little tease! Two weeks ago I shared the little red truck and "vintage look" toy ornaments I bought and I finally decided what to do with them. I have one of those bump out garden windows in the kitchen and decided this would be the perfect spot for the little red truck with the tree in it's bed. Well, the whole idea has snowballed, literally and figuratively! I decided to transform the whole garden window into a mini store window from the 40's/50's, think of the scene from "A Christmas Story" when they are looking in the store window and he spies the Red Ryder BB Gun. I've got vintage toys, a little snow mountain, a knee hugger pixie, and a toy airplane suspended from above. I'm not quite finished but thought I'd share this little glimpse!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
