Altered Tags, Thrift Treasures and ???

The "family" ATC went out to the ATC swap that I'm in...sorry if I posted before you rec'd yours. You can see the theme is "family" and I had the hardest time getting an idea for them.
The tag above is for the other ATC/tag swap that I'm in and I made 2 different ones and this is the only one left for me...

These darling tags are from Elizabeth at Creative Breathing. We did a one on one tag swap and she sent me 2 tags. The backs are also sweet. She makes wonderful paper treasures. Thank You Elizabeth!!!


Went to the thrift store today and found a few treasures. The poinsettia napkins are for Christmas morning brunch. I have 8 napkins for 4.58. Can't beat that price. I have a vintage poinsettia table cloth and think these will be great. The blue plate is for my collection and the pillows may stay as they would look nice on my green sofa. I love kitchen towels...I know a little weird. This one with blue flowers and red cherries is so sweet.




This very sweet set of blue and yellow napkins and place mats look and feel new and it's a set of 6 for 5.99...another great price. I told Kailee that I was going to sell them and she said" NO, let's keep them :) " She is learning :)




Hummm.........what are these 2 little items....I'm having a little giveaway and see the box by them...well...I'm packing that little box with little Christmas gifts. Tiny treasures from Me to One of You!!! Just leave me a comment on this post and I'll draw a name Sunday evening. I'll send to USA and Canada friends. Just a little something for Christmas Cheer. Remember...don't share the giveaway...it's for my regular readers. I know...I'm weird about this also!!
It looks like there are a FEW estate sales to go to...and a couple have the magic words"digger", "packed" and "vintage"...and those words are what we are looking for. I'll let you know if those words were truthful.
Have a great weekend!!!

Warmly,
Deb :)

Ohhhh...I LOVE that little angel so much! I so wish I could go to a vintage digger estate sale..that sounds like an interesting afternoon to me! I am hoping that I can get to the goodwill sometime soon because I haven't been there in ages! Good thing I have all of your treasures to enjoy, my friend!

Hi Deb! I love your new banner. I have to check that out. I need a new one but I wish I could learn how to do it myself. Time is all I need, right?

Your ATC's are great! I also see you are in that Card Swap. That looks like such fun. I am so out of it with blogging lately and I've missed so much. There just are not enough hours in the day. You sure keep very busy, too, don't you!!

Oooooo, I love when a sale says that it's packed and vintage! My favorites! You sure are finding alot of great napkins at great prices. I love using those to make pillows--so easy!
That little girl candle is so cute. Is it a Gurley candle? I would love to win her, because I don't have any Christmas ones. I'll keep my fingers crossed, and thanks for a great giveaway!
