The Stockings Are Hung ...

Yep, it's that time of year again - the holiday season is officially in full swing.  Lots to do:  decorating the tree, cookie baking, and shopping!  Diane (Molly Mo's) and I have filled her little barn with fresh greens (I had forgotten how wonderful fresh fir boughs smell!) and lots sparkle and glitz that we know you all love. 

 

It all begins this Friday evening with our annual Holiday Treasures Early Buying event, 5 pm - 8 pm.  $5.00 provides the opportunity to shop while you nibble on wonderful sweet and savory treats and sip a little wine or enjoy a cup of coffee.  The best part is we get to visit with all our friends  - shopping and a party!

 To entice you - just a little, I want to share a few images from this afternoon. 

Mercury glass candlesticks and sparkly trees ...

a decked-out angel with fluttery wings ...

an antique secretary with a sweet chalk ware kitty ...

 
lots of bright and shiny vintage ornaments ...

a MERRY message and filled cones to celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas ...

a bejeweled candlelier ...

a beautiful angel with an important message ...

lacy trees frosted with mica  ...

and a few "signs" of the season!
 
Remember, these are hand-picked antiques and collectibles and one-of-a-kind pieces that you will only find in this charming, little barn.  SO, help Santa a little this year
 and kick off your holiday shopping at the
Holiday Treasures show
co-hosted by me (Vintage Trifles) and Molly Mo's.
 
440 NE Cherry St.
Sublimity, Oregon
 
P.S. If you just can't make it out Friday evening, we will be open again on Saturday from 9 a.m. 

to 3 p.m.

Holiday Treasures Coming Soon!


I realize that Halloween was only a week ago, but when you offer handmade creations, you have to begin making items waaayyy in advance.  Many times not as early as you need to, but earlier than most, none the less. 
 
So, it seems like I'm jumping over Thanksgiving completely.  Not really.  It is still one of my top three holiday celebrations.  It's perfect.  Not much (if any) decorating, wonderful food and leftovers, a day dedicated to family and friends, a time to reflect and be grateful.  I am a big lover of Thanksgiving, but you gotta do what you gotta do to have sparkly Christmas creations ready to go!
 
I haven't posted many pictures because I have been working simultaneously on many different things.  They are all in various stages of "being done".  So once I have a few days at home, they will all come together!  I decided to go ahead and give you a peek at the doily trees I've been working on.
 
They don't have their layer of "snow" yet, but you can get the general idea!
 

 
A wonderful way to re purpose grandma's lace doilies!    I will continue to complete post projects, but make sure you mark your calendars for the Holiday Treasures Show co-hosted by Vintage Trifles and Molly Mo's!  The "when and wheres" are below.  Keep checking for more and also follow Vintage Trifles on Facebook!
