I love being 2 places at the same time!

Every Thursday, I like to play with all my pals at Vintage Thingies Thursday . Wait until you see Suzanne's vintage aluminium tree...It's gonna make you squeal with delight!
And....here's my contribution to Transformation Thursday , which is all about taking old fun junk and making new fun junk!

I made these frames from a melange of vintage garland, ornaments and holiday sheet music.

~ A Holiday Excursion ~

~ Little Wooden Soldier ~

I made these ornaments from recycled Kodak film (remember film?) tins, vintage greeting cards and trim.

These little dioramas started out in life as metal tea strainers!

P.S. I'll be posting on vintage Christmas all month long. If you would like to join in the fun, become a follower over there on the sidebar!

Ido believe I am a card holding, charter member!
Cute ideas and a great way to repurpose and not trash up the landfills. I'm afraid that yes, I do remember film...quite fondly! I have rolls I never got developed. Thank goodness for "point and clicks"!

Hey girlfriend, you're getting close to that magic 100 Followers mark--you will of course be having a fabulous party to celebrate, right? Great stuff on this post!

Hey Pam, try making the word "One" in your blog header, where it goes over the photo, in white. Kinda gets lost with red on the grey part of the pic. (Oh god, spoken like a true art director).

Manang Kim said...
