This is where I am at so far in the Little Golden Christmas Recipe book designed by vintagestreetmarket.com. I thought I was done. I am so not going to be done with this for awhile. Mostly because there are still a lot of recipes to add. And pictures from Christmas' past that will be added. And kids artwork. And some vintage bling. So it'll be one of those projects that will continue to evolve! But for now, it is bound and ready to be used...
|On the inside cover I put an old coloring page from a book that was actually saved from my childhood!|
|This page made me chuckle because it is sooo beat up. It is the actual notebook page that I wrote on when I had my sister in law make these while I was writing down every.single.step.she.did!|
While looking around Pinterest yesterday, I came across THIS PIN (click on the link and then the Pinterest picture to go to the wonderfully inspiring website of www.vintagestreetmarket.com ) and then nearly fell running down the stairs to the Studio to get one of my many copies of Twas The Night Before Christmas Little Golden Book to start ripping it apart and glittering the pages. What a fun way to use an old copy of the book and make it into a family heirloom recipe book! This is what is happening so far:
It Makes Holes So You Can Bind Things! And yes, I SHOUTED that at you!
I am really excited about this project and am still in the process of writing out our favorite Christmas recipes and finding some more vintage tiny treasures to add to the book. Will show you the finished project once it is completed, which will probably be within the next few days.
Have you been finding fabulous Christmas goodies, too?
|Not exactly Christmas, but this old heavy metal display unit is now residing at Memory Lane filled with glittery gift tags|
|We have a Santa and Mrs Claus rotating music box, four tiny Santa mugs, a nativity made in Italy, a light up angel and a Santa candy dish|
|I do not think I would EVER walk past a tiny Santa mug. (Esp when I find them for 25 cents!)|
|The details on this are awesome. I really like how Mary's cape is a separate piece!|
|Another metal box that will be used for display at the booth...|
|These are such a WONDERFUL shade of blue. The pictures just aren't doing the shade justice. But the blue will look wonderful in a Winter Wreath!|
|An adorable light up wreath that STILL LIGHTS UP!|
|And a Santa wreath that STILL LIGHTS UP! (not always easy to find these in still-working order)|
|And one lone gold glittered deer.|
|Started out with printed words on card stock. This year I used little quotes from Elf, A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation.|
|This is the glitter that has been added to using broken ornaments that I've crushed (which happens often around these parts) and tiny bits of leftover glitter.|
I think I want to make more! The ideas for these tags are endless.
