This is my "Vintage" Christmas card for 2008!

Sunday, December 21, 2008

Every morning, lunchtime and evening I see all these great stores and windows all decorated. Fifth Avenue in NYC is "amazing". I am trying to post a few pictures of some of the "different" decorations, things that you don't see in an ad for New York at Christmas. I hope you enjoy them. It will be really sad after the New Year to see it all go away.

Pink Vintage Swap

I received my Vintage Pink Christmas swap from Heidi. Everything was so beautifully wrapped in cello bags beige twine and black ribbons and bells and she stamped the cutest tags for each one. It was so wonderful chatting back and forth with Heidi and look forward to getting to know her better. I sent Heidi her Pink Christmas Swap items also.
From me to HeidiI pink polka dotted a white box and stamped with a Christmas stamp

I wrapped everything in pink tissue paper and pink tulle bows and a pink "H" ornament..

Sephora - Philosophy

Every year Sephora has a bunch of Philosophy product exclusives. All the bottles have a little "philosophy" almost like a little pep talk. I love that there products smell clean and fresh and comforting. Here are a few things I would love Santa to bring me....

A treat of chocolate

In the evening after Wendy Addison me and my friend Marlene went to Maribelle's. It is a chocolate cafe. I had Mocha Cafe and Marlene had some gourmet tea. One of the workers who had a beautiful accent gave me a free tiny chocolate piece with peanut butter inside.I Loves me some peanut butter. It was such an elegant cute place. Again my best dates are with my friends... It is so close to my job so I will be back before Christmas to buy some chocolate and cocoa as gifts. I did buy a bar of chocolate with a Christmas picture of a pin up girl. Plan to make some tags from that figure. All the chocolate are hand painted with adorable little designs. The picture of the face is a rug..beautiful little details all over. Enjoy

I bought a few things for swaps and autographed! She gave everyone a cute black and white poster must frame. (will post soon) I need to purchase one of her glittered Eifel Towers. Hope you enjoy my pictures.

Pink Crown

I found this plain "crown" at Home Goods a while ago and knew I had to get it. It was just too blah so had to "PINK" it up! I primed it then spray painted pink glittered the rounder tips and added flower and ribbons. I still need to bling it up so girl put your pink thinking caps on and tell me what else! Thank kisses

Belated Halloween

I was inspired by Carol Wingert to make this small dress form. I also purchased Carol's dress form kit which by the way I still have not made. I decorated the dress form black and white and used vintage ribbons as the skirt and then glittered a wooden candlestick holder and glued dress form on top. The second picture I found a cheap black and white mug and arranged black and white flowers added a spider and some web. I thought I would share before I packed them up for next year. Hope you had a "Spooktacular" Day!
