That Mercury Garland looks very Patriotic. It looks like you went over the river to Grandma's house with all that good stuff!


Laurie, it was well worth the river crossing! You found some amazing stuff. I've never seen concertina garland! Have a great day! Dianne


my grandmother has that same manger scene and my cousin Lindsay and i put it together every year. I love it because she hasn't saved much (my grandparents always update everything!) but she loves that manger.


Over the years, I have collected a pretty good amount of gift tags and seals. I can't ever pass up the cuteness! What do you do with yours?

Fun seeing you yesterday!



Those shoes are FAB!! I have never seen those and it would be fun to try making them.

I remember making those greeting card slippers in Sunday School when I was in third or fourth grade. We put candy canes and treats in them to give to someone in our family for Christmas. I think I gave mine to my grandmother.


Those little shoes are so sweet. Glad you made the trip over the river.


Great finds, I found one of those little shoe ornaments this week end too.


Such cute finds! Hey Laurie, have you ever heard of Wilsonville? My hubby's company has a sister company there and they have a position that he is considering but we no nothing of the area. Any info. that you might have would be great.
We have looked online but info. from locals is always the best.
Our kids are grown so schooling is not an issue.
Thanks! karen....

Looks like it was well worth the road trip. Those woodland Christmas seals are darling. I can't believe all the stuff you find in the original packaging.
