Sweet little finds and a little tease...

I have some sweet little finds to share with you, but I am finding it really hard to take pictures in this poor winter light...!! Kids are out of school for winter break and we are getting our house ready for a very special visitor... My dad!!! He is coming from Portugal to spend Christmas with us, then he is off right after the 25th for some skiing in Colorado! He has never been here so it will be great to show him our sweet little home!!

I found this darling wicker sleigh at Monticello...

An addition to my collection of old celluloid albums...

Love old children's book covers!

This petal pillow just needs some filling...

Lovely addition to my collection of vintage talc bottles...

Finally, I leave you with a little tease... I am finally taking care of a project long overdue, and I will show you the final results soon!! This is what I will be working with... Come back soon!
