Lissie Loves. . . . . .

Hey folks! I hope everyone is having a lovely, relaxing weekend! I thought I’d pop in and share a few things I’ve found this week while wandering around the web.

First up are these adorable deer found on SheWalksSoftly and made by Violetpie.

I discovered this darling book jewelry on Reading is Fashionable. Earrings, pins, necklaces, and hair accessories can all be found at BookEarrings.

Have you heard of the Vintagemobile. This old school bus travels around the Dallas area selling vintage clothing. I so want to visit this bus! I found the Vintagemobile on a recently discovered treasure of a blog, Gypsy Dust Vintage. You really should check it out!

Speaking of Gypsy Dust Vintage, it was there that I discovered the lovely illustrations of Inslee.

I am also excited to learn about the collaboration between milliner Albert Swanepoel and Target. Can’t wait for these to hit the shelves!

Ever wondered if you are a 21st Century Romantic?  Take this fun quiz on a bloomsbury life to find out.  While you are there check out the rest of her blog.  I think you’ll like it.

That’s all for now. I have more goodies I can’t wait to share, so see ya later.


Vintage Ad Friday

I couldn’t resist this ad!

Storybook Cuteness!

I found this whimsical shop while perusing the lovely blog, DayDream Lily. I fell in love at once with all the cute lovelies!

I simply adore all the woodland cuteness! I highly recommend paying a visit to The Storybook Rabbit.

It’s Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas!

I realize I’ve been absent for about a week and I want to apologize for leaving without explanation. My sister needed help taking care of her two youngest. Both came down with the flu and my babysitting skills were required. I was happy to help! Unfortunately, these things never happen with advance notice. All are well now, happy and smiling. Since returning home, this is the first chance I’ve had to write. I thought I might share a bit of our Christmas decorations.

This is our lovely tree. I may be a bit partial, but I do love our little tree. It is warm and inviting with its traditional, vintage look and feel.

Back in the spring, I found a lovely collection of wooden ornaments at a yard sale (see post). This little table tree is the perfect way to showcase my lovely garage sale treasure.

My Aunt Shirley made the penguin and my mom gave me the wreath. I was inspired to hang them on the same nail and am quite pleased with the overall effect.

Next are a couple of views of our mantel. I used this fruit in a similar manner several years ago. Hubby made a special request this year, so I pulled it out again. Around here we prefer a traditional, vintage feel to our Christmas decor.

I couldn’t resist sharing a pic of the tabletop display which showcases my cute little elf. I also want to let you all in on a little secret regarding the candle and wreath. I bought that little wreath at a dollar store and it has been indispensible. I never glue anything down. I decorate a little differently each year depending upon how we choose to utilize our other decor. I’ve used candy cane striped bows and snowmen as well as fruit. It was an inexpensive find and fun to play with each year.

And finally. . . .
my sweet little deer.
