Vintage Thingy Thursday AND Our Christmas Decor


This Thursday I'm sharing another item I got at the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) holiday bazaar. Unfortunately I don't know much about it as far as the year it was made? It is a beautiful red placemat made out of felt (I think) it is cream with a second piece of red felt, with snowflakes cut out of it, sewn on top. Anything red catches my eye, I had to have it! This Christmas it has found a home on our end table in our family room. Happy VTT and MERRY CHRISTMAS!



*Edited to add Rednesday, decided to join in at It's a Very Cherry World




I had SO much fun decorating for Christmas this year, I had to share! :-)

Just look at that ballerina nutcracker! I call my nutcrackers "the kings." I guess this means you have kings AND queens!

You certainly have done a wonderful job of decorating for the holidays! Love the nutcrackers, and the snowflake placemat, but it's all lovely.

Merry Christmas! You did a great job decorating.
I love the place mat! It looks like the snowflakes were cut away in the red to reveal the white underneath, is that true?
its a good idea to do that technique in felt, no edges to turn under. I might just have to try it. (That and a million other things, sigh)
