Very Merry Vintage

It's finally November! I just love this time of year: cooler weather, hotter drinks, more time with family and friends, Thanksgiving, my birthday, reflections on faith and Christmas. We are one day into the holiday season, and I am ready to put up my Christmas tree. Sadly, I have been under the weather with a severe migraine for almost a week so I am mostly hiding under a pillow these days.

Here is a little something I worked on recently. I've decided to call this my Very Merry Vintage album.

I love the foamy white mixed with the snowflake blue. The vintage candy cane is another Etsy find, and don't you love the minty ribbons all pulled together on the spine?

I layered a mint-green vintage button with twine, vintage inspired lace, and a sweet happy holidays rub-on.

I find that when I am going for vintage - I just have to give myself permission to put on as many layers as I want - like an old woman who has passed the point where you can wear too much make-up.

Love the heavy metallic photo corners with the sweet blue image.

Oooh there's Santa sneaking out of the chimney. I hope he left lots of goodies.

Do you even want to know how many different companies are represented on this one page? I count 8! I'd give you a prize for mentioning them all, but 2 are really rather impossible unless you're one of the salesclerks that rang me up last week. :)

A few scallops to edge things out.
Can't wait to get a kiss under the mistletoe this year. :)

Love the ribbons on this page - simple, subtle, sublime.

Very Merry Vintage indeed. Hope you like! Happy Scrapping.

A wonderful acrylic album for sure! I like November so much better than October, but am not a big fan of winter other than Christmas though.
