A fun bucket style tote bag - Item #9

Stacked star buttons to match...
Vintage blue ticking handles, colorful stacked button with green and white polka dot closure..more red rick rack..
The back has more denim, a denim pocket with rick rack and hearts, blue ticking, detailed red embroidered stitching..
and the inside is lined with red gingham fabric that has been free-formed quilted for durability. A sweet divided pocket to hold the small purse things..check out the fun embroidered stitch! This tote is fully lined with quilting polyfill batting, double stitched seams for strength. The straps also are nice and soft with batting inside. Size: Straps have a 16" drop from your shoulder, tote is 13" deep, 11 1/2" wide with a 4" gusset.

A fun shelf that has a great black forest look to it, with plaid backing, holds my vintage pinecone elves, gnomes and Santas.

Doogs is all tired with helping me decorate! This is his little spot on the back of the love seat...Notice that his little blankie matches his collar?





These have to be my favorite vintage pieces of all time. As a child, my mom would set three of hers out each year. I use to hold them and study them as they were just so little and sweet. When mom moved, she gave away a bunch of her things. Come to find out, she gave these gnomes to my little brother. I saw them one year at Christmas. In time, I found three exact ones (the three at the very top). Just happy little memories!

I think I'm going to be saying awwwwweeeee for about 10 minutes. How cute is Doogs all tucked in there?????? Awwwwwweeeee!!!!!! Oliver sleeps exactly the same way on our couch~must be a Scottie thing.

You've outdone yourself again with your wonderful creations. Miss Abigail Tabbytail has discovered the jingle bell on my Scottie pillow BTW. She thinks it's great sport to toss it off the chair! I'm trying to teach her to give more respect to anything Scottie.
