And the stockings were hung…

Just as the decorating was finishing up, snow started to fall! Unfortunately it has almost all melted now, but maybe it is a sign of things to come? Hope so!

The button wreath, above, is a little decoration I made for my mom last year with my stash of vintage buttons. If you look closely you’ll even see some vintage rhinestones! Love those so much! I even put a couple of my snowflake tags on the tree! A little paper fun added the perfect vintage touch.

I was playing around with my snowflake punch and found out that: snowflake punch + aluminum foil = FUN! These look much cooler in person, the camera didn’t capture the sparkle like I would have liked it to. They are fun and really, REALLY shine! Try it, it’s fun!

And… at the very last minute, I broke out the baker’s twine and strung a few of the snowflake tags, so fun and festive!

Christmas can come now and I’m so excited I can hardly wait!! I’ve got some extra special presents for people this year, how am I going to wait 2 more weeks to give them to them!?!?!

    that button wreath is ADORABLE!!!! I love the rhinestones and the cute little red Bambi/reindeer thingy too 🙂

    Great idea to hang your snowflake tags in the tree ~ they look BEAUTIFUL 🙂

    Great thing about punching tin foil in your punches, is that it also helps your punches punch better ~ ehhehehehehe doesn’t that sound goofy! But it’s true 🙂 It re-sharpens your punches! Totally fun!!!! I have the same snowflake punch ~ I’m a snowflake-addict!!!!
