Junk (Still) Becomes Useful

It would not be breaking news to report that I'm just a little bit addicted to re-purposing vintage stuff, especially at Christmas. Last year, I threw this dear little deer together with a glittery Christmas card, a vintage tree and fake snow to make a shadowbox for an OGT giveaway.

And you know how I feel about tartlette tins...

Suzy, the creative genius at Georgia Peachez, came up with this brilliant idea...Use old ornament boxes too! What could be better than a festive holiday diorama?!? I could say that Suzy "inspired" me, but that's really just a polite way of saying I totally ripped off her idea.

Tiny blue chenille girl.

A fabulous mish mash of other people's trash.
Thanks Suzy!
