Vintage Alphabet Party!!! Wahoooooooo!

I have had so much fun with this Alphabet Party that here I go againfor N and O! Ahem! Please don't comment on my stretch of the imagination...let's just call it being reaaaallllly creative....
Here goes! Vintage Nativity...

Nests with vintage goodies:

Come on... my friend used a vintage wine vessel and clip earring for the blue nest, there is a vintage bird in the egg cup nest and the other nest is in a vintage china cup..... think creativity okay?
Next up: Vintage Napkins and nesting dolls (available in my spotted hen shop on sale!)

Vintage October..... okay, okay, okay! stretching it a bit but I loooooveee Halloween and I missed H! So........ Vintage October.....

These are the wonderful vintage goodies I love to create with and some tags that are made with vintage (ahem) October images..... (they are in my recycledrita etsy)
Here is a closeup of the little goodies:

And...a vintage Oil and Vinegar set... Now you can't argue with that one!

Okay, there you go.... Fun huh? Go visit all the other members of Etsy Cottage Style who are participating and join the party!
Hubby and I went to Ventura and spent the day going thru the 30+ thrift stores (we missed some, or maybe our feet were just killing us!) It was fun! I found a couple of things I couldn't pass up and will be back on thursday or friday to share with you.
Until then, have a creative week...hee! hee! karen.....

Hello, friend,
You have been very creative in showing your vintage alphabet goodies. I especially love the birds and their nests, two of my very favorite things. Halloween is my favorite holiday so you know I love your Halloween treats as well. Happy September to you, Karen~love and hugs~Vicki
