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.

7.5 yards of vintage pom-strung trim. Also good for garland.
A perfect vintage sham full of crewel and a touch of neon.

I keep finding them; colorful, bordered, never-used old timer cotton squares. I have quite a pile now and will be stringing them up for bunting soon. But I can’t decide whether to hang them diagonally, or a squares. what do you think? Here are two examples: Square-hung and diagonal hung.

I added color to the teepee over the weekend. These pole caps make me happy!
This was a trial error sewing project. I started with a bunting template, made it larger and sewed a sample. Adjusted and fitted until I like the look. I used fabrics I had.
A tip-top topper!
See the teepees here and here.

Thrifted as a complete set, 226 fun alphabet flashcards with cute graphics and pithy sayings. Added to my etsy shop. Would be great with pieces in a gallery wall.

I once passed up a stack of vintage hankies and never again will that happen. These are the first two from which I hope to made bunting and a myriad of other project to come. Hankies at thrift store are rarely used. How could you blow your nose on such prettiness?
