Pretty Holiday Inspiration~

It's no secret that I love buttons. Especially vintage buttons. So you can imagine the little squeal I let out when I saw this pretty button tree made by Sara of Sadie Olive.

Oh yes, this is now on my to do list. (For next year of course!)
Have a great day~

I've got 1000's of vintage buttons mostly from the 60's for sale at 10 cents each. Proceeds go to my mother's care. Also thread on wooden spools, bias tape, zippers etc also from the 60's

Love these buttons trees. They are similar to the old jewelry trees they use to make. Check out the tour of my friend's home at: atticgals.blogspot.com. She has a jewelry tree from her grandma and guess what? They inherited the one from her husband's grandma? Is that fun or what? Anyhow, another idea. Love your blog!

I too have a growing list of Christmas projects. I had better get started now tho. It will take me at least until then to get them all finished.
Have a Merry Christmas.

I can't believe you're blogging in the middle of moving! Wow, that's impressive. I hope you're wherever the new home is in time for Christmas! I love your dried oranges idea, I already did that with apples and I think I'm going to do some oranges today. I used the apples to decorate our "outdoor tree" out on my porch. We got really into porch decorating this year! I was going to link it to your frugal linky post but it was closed, bummer! That's what I get for doing things last minute, next year I need to get organized and do stuff earlier. Anyway, hope you have a great Christmas, your blog is one of my faves!
