It's been awhile since I joined in so I thought. I am so excited about 2012. My shops are filling up daily with wonderful creations and vintage treasures. Lots of vintage items, old and tarnished, prairie style clothing, and lovely pinks and pastels too.

It's difficult for me to break away from my love of pink, so I've decided I'm going to continue on being just ME and add some lovely pink items in my Elegance and Whimsy Etsy shop.

I hope you are all enjoying your New Year and here are some lovelies I have added this week or will be adding this weekend.

Thank you to our lovely Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for her efforts in pulling together this wonderful event each week.

I hope you all enjoyed your New Year's Eve celebrations. It was quiet here on the homefront, but I could hear the fireworks from all the surroundings towns. It was so exciting to be bringing in the new year and all it has to offer each and every one of us. New creations, new styles, a fresh change in decor (maybe), and a coat of fresh paint on everything in the house. (Hmm, we'll have to think on that a little longer).

Today is bright, sunny and very mild for the first of January in New England. But, I'll take this mild winter any day! Hope it's as pretty where you live.

Can't wait for Spring. I am getting a little jump start on our next fun and festive holiday. I probably will only make one Valentine Wreath this season. I'm running low on vintage ephemera and Lefton figurines. The prices of everything vintage holiday has skyrocketed. The beautiful Lefton Valentine figurines are now in the hundreds of dollars. Yikes!!

If you LOVE this wreath, you may want to grab it while it's available. I won't be making another one with a vintage Lefton Valentine girl, they are just too costly. So here you go. You can see the entire wreath up close and purchase her if you would like by clicking HERE.

I would love to reach 1000 "Friends".
