It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

December 16, 2012

I'm so happy that the posters I ordered from Australia have arrived! I fell in love with these babies  from Paulo and Lulu the moment I saw them and just knew that I wanted to display one in the hall, a quick trip to IKEA for a frame and I was sorted. The other thing I wanted to do was cover some cans in vintage labels so I could fill them with holly and berries. We don't use a lot of canned food and the ones I collected weren't big enough so I asked the catering manager at work if I could have some of their empty large catering size cans, he's so sweet; I now have enough empty cans to keep me busy for a very long time to come...Next I searched for some vintage food labels and then altered the label and added text to say "may your days be merry and bright'. The 50's reindeer I downloaded from the Graphics fairy blog which is an incredible resource of vintage images for projects. I put it together with some digital paper and brushes from Anna Aspnes and again added text, last thing was the addition of a sweet little Robin my mother bought me last year perched on a branch – yes, it's finally starting to look a little like Christmas around here...
