Earlier this month was the Spirit of Christmas Past Show that Tina hosts in her lovely home. You can read more about my first visit and how I discovered it here.
I was so happy to get to attend again!
She had so many lovely primitive antiques and folk art creations!
I have such a difficult time trying to decide what will go home with me.
So I tend to stay a little longer just to enjoy it all :)
So many sweet vignettes!
There is a bed, so maybe I could stay a bit...
How to ever decide...
I loved the sleds that Tina made last year, so I knew that was a must have!
I found the perfect spot for it inside our back entrance.
It had sweet twinkling lights on it, but there is no outlet in this corner.
Thank goodness for Amazon and one day delivery!
It now has battery operated lights that are even on a timer!
Although I don't have them on yet in this photo...
And these are the treasures that I bought from Mary.
Who can resist a red child's shoe with lots of age and character?
Mary used to have a child's shoe Christmas tree.
Can you just imagine how darling that must have been?
An artist's mohair bird. Love!
I wasn't going to pass this up after regretting not getting a little mohair bear last time!
And look at this wonderful box with a little locking latch that still works.
It might have been a sewing box with the faded black puffy velvet lid lining - maybe a pincushion?
Thank you Mary for the sweet little treat!
You know that I absolutely love everything about it!
And thank you Wendy Stys-Van Eimeren of Pineberry Lane
for introducing me to this wonderful show and these lovely women!
Maybe next time we will finally meet...
But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, in order to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as children. And because you are children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave but a child, and if a child then also an heir, through God.
