“Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.”

No Grinch at Vain and Vintage

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?  It came without ribbons.  It came without tags.  It came without packages, boxes or bags.  And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.  Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.  What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.  What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.  ~Dr Seuss

Thank You Hollie Ray (and Mr. Keller, too) For The Kind Words

Last week, on 'Thrifty Thursday', I posted about this beauty I scored at Vain and Vintage in Pocatello! (I'm in love with ev.ery.thing I buy from Laura there, but this piece was especially sweet and charming!) 

Recycled Materials

Under The Table and Dreaming featured this great idea; turn an inexpensive globe into a chalkboard.

If These Doors Could Talk

May your troubles be less,
And your blessing be more.
And nothing but happiness,
Come through your door.
