I can't quite wrap my arms around this....
bah-dump pow (me using a small snare drum and cymbal).
This wreath is quite unique. My initial opinion is suffering from bewilderment. Then....I immediately switch to numerous questions:
1. what place would this home decor item best enhance its surroundings?
2. would this wreath, by most observing folk, find it to be:
c. excellent use of re purposing doll parts
d. all the above
3. what expression does your face create when you first see it?
4. would you drop $45 to adorn your door or wall with it?
Now, let's make this perfectly clear....I'm not a "hater" for the wreath....not a "lover" of the wreath...just find it a visual that formulates a lot of unanswered questions.
What about you?

In the middle of moving and packing I unearthed a box with an unfinished project. I think this endeavor began two years ago.
It started with this beautiful hand crocheted doily with little linen coins creating the base.
I do not use doilies too much, but this one was so different. My intention was to create a pillow with it. ...obviously, I put it in a box under my bed...and I haven't seen it since....until....TODAY!
About eight of the buttons were sewn on...and a baggy full of buttons.
So, in the middle of moving and packing I sat down and finished sewing the buttons on. Like I needed to do this TODAY?
But, it did turn out cute!
Now...how many years before it becomes a pillow?

I've been cleaning out....picking.....searching...and buying....and guess what?
It has all been put in my antique booth at the Knitting Mill!
My vintage purse collection has gotten a little overwhelming...so, I'm sharing it with my friends Fabulous little evening bags and funky vintage pock-kah-books!!
I will forever love a good platter or serving dish! You can never have too many!
Just recently found this little doll. She is so "Jackie-O" to me. Quite a little cutie!
All kinds of new odd tables and trunks.
But, one of my very, very favorite lamps is this old parking meter! You will not find this funky lamp in any department store!
All kinds of vintage made earrings!
'Tis the season for RED!!
Stuff...stuff and more stuff!
Plus, a whole basket of vintage ephemera! You will never believe what all can be found in this basket.
I just recently purchased a small glass case. It is filled with two cubic feet of vintage jewelry and tiny little baubles!
Knitting Mill has some great vendors and antiques! Christmas Open House is coming up! Great place to shop!

I have often mentioned my affection for a small town near me, Ringgold, GA. My favorite junking spots....junking peeps....and mexican food are quietly nestled in this little town.
I vividly remember the first time I passed through the town while the flags were up, I was amazed. This town honors its Veterans three times a year (July 4th, Memorial Day and Veterans Day) with beautiful American Flags. The town and all its streets are covered with American Flags. The base of each flag lists a Veterans Name and the war in which they lost their life. There must be hundreds of flags everywhere. It is a vision that makes you breathless.
Happy Veterans Day!
