I know I still need to blog about Seattle, and Portland, and Renegade Craft Fair!! But I also really need to pick up the house! After a couple weeks of traveling and crafting, the house has exploded with slivers of paper, clothing, yarn bits, bubble wrap, and jewelry findings! I also need to post Renegade leftovers up on Etsy for you guys!
But anyway, here are some peeks of our Xmas tree. I don’t want to take a full-length shot, because the tree is sandwiched between two chairs, which are covered in various ugly blankets to keep dog dirt and hair off them!
I bought my tree on eBay, and my goal was to decorate it only with vintage and handmade! This is the first year I’ve really felt like getting my own tree. I’m becoming sentimental for Christmas. It’s unfortunate that Hairy is such a grump and keeps saying, “I HATE CHRISTMAS!” But I got us a big pink Christmas tree anyway!
Vintage popcorn and candy garlands, plus one popcorn garland crocheted by me (my own pattern…which I may post later!).
Sadly, due to my busy schedule, I was not able to handmake many presents this year :(. I am thinking maybe next year I won’t vent at a holiday fair, but just put stuff on Etsy and craft for my loved-ones. But we’ll see! There’s always this weird pull for me to set up my fabric food truck and sit around for 8 hours hawking my wares :P.
