Christmas garland

December 17, 2012 § 2 Comments

I thrifted this vintage Christmas fabric last year. I made the bunting after Christmas in a week of motivation, go figure. And I have been waiting impatiently for the Christmas season all year to enjoy it! I’d say it is the focal point of the living room.

I liked this beautiful wicker rocking cradle at the thrift store. But it is not our time of life at the moment. At less than $20 I hope someone loved this wonderful deal.

Costume art

My pictures here stink. I bought 54 discs from Pakistan. I was told they came off of belly dancing costumes. They winged their way to me sifting bits of exotic dirt and smelling of tea and herbs. I completely love these things. I bought a multiple of 9 so I could frame them nine at a time, but ended up pinning them in a line across my whole bedroom wall. I think a giant poster shape would be a better display when we move. They are made of glass and stone beads and heavy wool. They have cracked little mirrors and strings sticking out. Each is intricate and so bright. My favorite is the middle picture, middle disc; yellow ring and orange diamonds.

Stuck them together, and now he lives with his rhino friend.

And they are very solemn together. I love it.

Can’t collect too many dishes. Breakable space hoggers. But just a few. Some day I’ll have a whole table set with mix and match awesomeness. 2 Anthro plates this week for $1.06. Sweet!
