Wacky Pack Wednesday, The Last Installment

Yes, I have finally come to the last Wacky Pack Wednesday. I do have a few more Wackys in my collection, but they are a little damaged or not so funny or... you get the idea. So today I am coming full circle and showing the first Wacky Package sticker I bought and the first one I showed on my blog back in March of 2012. To read that post, click here.

I knew when I started I would run dry in about two or so years. It sure went by fast! Thanks for viewing on Wednesdays!

A Late Winter

We had a green Christmas here this year, and a very mild winter as of Sunday. Yesterday was another story-- sleet, rain, and wind.

I hope you are snug today!

Smash Pages

I haven't added anything new to my Smash books in quite a long time. I got a little collagey recently and put this together. Mostly magazine clippings.

And as long as I had my Christmas stuff out... There's a little bit of everything on these pages. Stickers, Christmas seals, scrapbook paper, sequins...

Have a nice day out there!

Giving a little tour of my crowded Christmas tree today. Some ornaments are old, some newer, some in between. Wood, glass, plastic... Enjoy your look around.

Have a wonderful day!

Christmas Crafts

I found time to make some Christmas gifts this year. First up, small cross stitch ornaments. These were made from a kit.

I made some paper Finnish stars from this how-to. They are pretty big, easy to make, and inexpensive too if you find a scrapbook paper sale. Notice that the majority were not made with Christmas themed paper so any paper you like will work well.

This star is showing the back, but if you prefer, it could be displayed this way too.

Any holiday crafts on your work surface this year? Have fun and thanks for viewing!

Friday Favorite

Since we are knee deep in the holiday season, my question for this Friday is: what is your favorite Christmas carol? Jingle bells?

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town?

White Christmas? Notice this sheet music is from the movie Holiday Inn and not White Christmas.

Or maybe you like the sillier side of caroling? How about the Chipmunk Song??

I really have a lot of favorites, but What Child Is This would be near the top. Pat-A-Pan comes to mind. I like Bob Seger's version of Little Drummer Boy. Love the Vince Guaraldi music (from A Charlie Brown Christmas). Who doesn't like Judy Garland singing Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas... Okay, I'll shut up now.

Have a nice weekend!

Concentrating On Thrifts

Yes, my post title is a bad pun since I bought an old Concentration board game among other things.

I have mentioned before that my daughter collects these funky, old banks. This is the first one I ever found at a thrift store. Shh... I'm saving it for her birthday next year.

Two more children's books. Two vintage (unused) Christmas cards at a penny apiece-- are they kidding? I also could not pass up a few teenie beanies such as Ronald McDonald and the Hamburglar.

How about some free Christmas seals?

Here are a couple of the concentration puzzles. Pretty cool graphics. Can you guess the answers??

Above is "staring into space."
This one, with the cat, is "take it or leave it."

If anyone is interested, I will be selling these puzzle sheets individually in my Etsy vintage shop.

Thanks for stopping in today! Have a good one!

Wacky Pack Wednesday

I never knew the real product being spoofed on today's Wacky Pack. It's Buitoni spaghetti sauce. Hmm... not familiar with it. Are you?

Gee, spaghetti sounds good for dinner tonight (or maybe not???). Thanks for looking!
