The most awesome garland, yeah!

Vintage Wreaths are Shaping Up

I've made a square wreath and a rectangular wreath for my own collection.
This is the first square wreath that I have made for the store.
This wreath is 17" square and makes quite the statement.

This One's For ME

I've made hundreds of wreaths over the last few years, and passed each one along to it's new home.
The wreaths that I made and have in my own personal collection were made many years ago.  
This season I made a buying trip to one of my favorite places on this earth, Suzanna's Antiques.
I brought home many wonderful ornaments to use in my wreaths, and I also found this cutie.
 This guy is an impressive 10 inches high, even in his tucked posture.  He still maintains his Made in Japan label and he is stuffed with excelsior.
Love the avocado green burlap.  Love at first sight actually.

I brought him home, knowing that he would become the focal piece of a new wreath, for the GeorgiaPeachez  family collection.
I've been saving and setting aside many wonderful 70's kitschy ornaments just for a future and personal wreath project.
He is a happy elf with his new home.  
You can see that my personal taste  
in vintage Christmas really skews to the wacky side.

I'm just tongue tied and speechless.

What is this??
 This is just the most amazing collection of vintage ornaments.
