Escape Christmas Ornament...

Just when you thought you were DONE with all the Christmas decor...

Do you see it? There it is... that sneaky little so and so!

Yes! I cleaned everything... Yes! I moved all the furniture... Yes! Everything is packed away nice and neat... I thought so anyway...

Well! I stuck it there and there it will stay! Just like I meant it!

Did that ever happen to you?

Any Who!






Friday is the next Fresh-Cut Friday. I really REALLY hope you will join in. I love seeing all the arrangements. In honor of your joining in I am sharing with you my vintage seed packets.

Please take them and use as you wish. I am going to be using them in my sidebar. I hope you will let me know what you use them for. There are so many craft projects that these would just be perfect for.

Aren't they cute?

This happens to me every year. I have decided that the little *thing*, whatever it is, is a clever little stow away in desperate need of an exciting year and that it has earned it's right to stay. Lucky for you, it fits right in; no one will ever know but you. ;-)

i have too much christmas STUFF. something ALWAYS sneaks out to stay with the "permanent" decor--my hubby was afraid that this year it was the 7 ft. tree in our front room(i just took it down yesterday).
my table is covered with flower pots--i may already have a topic for Friday! lol.
the seed packets are wonderful and some of my FAVORITE things!

Well it is nice to know I am not alone! I always - always have one that gets overlooked. You just look at them for so long - it begins to blend right in! :)
And you are right! I do love the seed packets! Oh my! My mind is a twirling around what I can use them for. Thanks so much for sharing! Perfect!
It is a VERY cold (hey 35 is cold in So Cal!) and windy day here. I LOVE IT! It must be on it's way to you next!
Stay warm!
HAGD! Karen

Oh I love all of the antique advertising!

I do so hope you can make it to the tea. You are welcome to grab the button and spread the word.

I hope that you can make it. It should be a fun day.

Hi Liz..I love your vintage seed packets. Very charming.
I'm happy to say that I will be joining you for Fresh Cut Friday this Month. When I was at the grocery store this afternoon I saw pink Tulips. Then I remembered that tomorrow is the first Friday of Feb. My Favorite Month of the year. See you on Friday.
