Beginning of the hunting and gathering phase

Every year, right after Halloween, my mind skips to Christmas fun.  I know so many people think that this is way too early to start thinking of the holiday, but I like to revel in the dreaminess of the season as long as possible.  So in early November I begin hunting for fun things to give and use for the holidays.  

This weekend I am headed to an antique market to begin looking for things that I can use this Christmas.   Here are a few things that you should be on the lookout for.  As we get closer to the holiday, I will begin showing you how I use these various items to decorate and gift wrap.
Happy Hunting & Gathering!

This is when I should start thinking about making things for Christmas but I actually start about a week before. HA. I do want to make some gifts for my mail art pals so I better get started sooner rather than later. Love those vintage keys and tins....

Yes Pamela, you should start working on the projects now. That way you can sit back & enjoy the season when it is here. :)
