Advent Calendar Collage

I finished my Advent Calendar...
(I know I'm a week late)
 But I took my time finding all the right pieces
I wanted to fill it with....
and I didn't have the size tags I needed
so I had to hand cut all 25 tags
I could have used a bigger frame and may change it out later
but this is what I had for now...
I have it propped on my mantel next to my
collection of vintage bibles....

some of the treasures I already had...
some were from other dealers picked up along the way
the vintage embellished bottle I made

I love the vintage thistle in the music cone
and the little wire bird- she came from my friend Beth
@ Old Thyme Marketplace

the vintage leather coin purse is a fav too..
I have three more just waiting for a project!
Well...there you have it...
My inspiration for this project came from
The Ole Grey Mare
she's keeping her's up all year....
think I will too!
Linking up with Faded Charm
for White Wednesday and
My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia
for Tuesday's Treasures!

Go over and check out all the other posts!

The Etsy Shop is almost ready to open...
stay tuned a few more days
lots of great stuff coming your way!
Have a great Tuesday!
Happy Holidays

    I am so happy you are coming to the B party! Thank you, I love your blog and I am now a follower. Isn't that advent calendar of Susan's a great idea, yours is just spectacular. I wanted to make one too so I dragged a big frame from storage but haven't started it - so that idea will go along the way side.
