Deck the halls with bells of holly....

Yay for Christmas decor projects! Today is the first snowfall of the year... Even though I would hardly say it's "snowing". And I had nothing to do, but that of what I wanted to. So, I decided to work on (and finish) and project I've been not-so-patiently awaiting.

You see, about 45 miles from here, in a tiny little town called Bristol, there is some amazing thrifting and antiquing. Last time I was there I stumbled upon a zip-lock filled with OLD Christmas postcards. SO cool! Some of them date all the way back to 1902. I have always loved old things. I like to imagine the people they used to belong to. What their lives were like. The stories formed around the specific item. So, I bought them. Duh. And then... I made this...

Fa la la la la, la la la laaaaa.


  1. Beautiful! One year I made cards using old Christmas crds, all dated between 1920-something and 1940-something. Each person (80 some on my list) got an old Post Card. Honestly? I now wish I'd hav ekept them all! Haha.

  3. So, so cute, Elise. What a great take on the banner theme. I love it. And I love you...you are precious and my first born and beautiful and creative and so much more. My life is better because of you.
