Retro Found Objects for a Mod Holiday!

I was recently drooling on my computer, the fault of etsy shop BellaLulu! Just a few of her fantastic vintage offerings are highlighted here, along with an etsy front page Treasury she made, including my Vintage Retro paper Wreath on the bottom row.
Check out her shop sometime, and feel free to buy me that orange crate for Christmas!

Over the River and Through the (vintage paper) Woods

If you have cookie cutters, you have holiday table decorations! Just trace your favorite onto sheet music or wonderfully aged text paper, cut and sprinkle with glitter, and your table will sparkle in a way that my camera just can't pick up. My trees and little Thanksgiving song squares are dusted with vintage German glass glitter, which is coarse and brilliant, purchased from this great etsy shop,
And just a side note here- these (of course!) took longer to make than I would have thought, which is why I only have two sets for sale in my shop :0 But they sure make the table look great!

Edgy and Urban

Although I love everything cottage shabby, it's not really my true self, so every once in a while I celebrate things minimalist and not pink! Here are a couple of collections of just that, found on and available for your holiday giving for all those non-cottage people in your life :) Just click the grid if you'd like to see the shop name under each item.

Finally! A good way to recycle shopping bags, old ties, and falling apart books and catalogues, and satisfy your inner artist as well: create art bags for gift giving!
