A European Christmas....

Joyeux Noël and God Jul!! This year at The Vintage-Flea we wanted to have a European Christmas theme with timeless French and Scandinavian accessories.

European Christmas Mosaic Titled Winter White So to help our vision, we found Etsy Artist Petit Coterie

and her amazing French Burlap & Muslin Pillows.

"Fais de Beaux Reves" means sweet dreams in French.

Many design choices are available but not very many pillows... hope to see you soon!

Paper Joy

A holiday decorating idea to pass along to you... paper wreaths. We have been getting so many compliments lately on our wreath by the front door and skirt on the mannequin!! I wanted to share with you...

and you can do it too with books for only $1.00 at The Flea.

Many pages were torn out of our lawyers books.. (I know some of you don't like to ruin a good book but these are LAW books we're talking about) They were then rolled up and the ends were stapled to a piece of thick cardstock in a circle pattern. Layering as you go. These were are inspirations...

This last one is from an Etsy artist called SimpleJoysPaperie. Her wreaths are truley amazing and start at $50.

Want to make ornaments instead of wreaths?? Here is a great tutorial that my pal Jenni found from ColorFlyStudio. Happy Crafting!!
