Christmas in Bell Buckle, TN....

...back to Phillips General Store for another wonderful
vintage holiday.

The windows were just beautiful!

Several vintage inspired hangings to choose from.

I love this glittered Santa!

Unique ornaments and an old snowman in the left corner.

The red tree is lovely with so many vintage Santas.

Bethany Lowe Christmas blocks....very cute.

I do like this vintage top hat and wish that I had one. I am
hoping to be nice, and not naughty this season.

Maybe if I am nice, Santa will bring me a vintage inspired
BLUE Christmas!

Caketini welcome and Vendor night

A couple of Bellas hosted "Caketini", which was Thursday
afternoon before all of the Silver Bella opening festivities.
Several of us attended, big sisters met little sisters and
we all made new friends and visited with old friends.

The little caketinis were wonderful! Small cakes with
chocolate icing....yum!

Lori Oles and me....full of sugar and all smiles!

Now on to dinner Thursday evening, which was a feast!
Many different choices at several different tables. This is
Laura from 52 Flea, she was my roomie Kim's little sister.
Look at her cute swap, I believe a trim swap and the hostess
put the different trims in an egg container.

Besides having dinner with Laura, we also ate with Lulu and
her roomie Shelly. We had a wonderful time together. Lulu
was very good to meet several of us via ours blogs prior to
arriving in Omaha, so it was great to meet her face to face!

On to Vendor night and yes the theme was "Hats on
Parade". I believe Karla had the best hat!! It is a
hat with a bird cage on it and even one of the
birds is wearing a top hat.....too cute!

Me with the wonderful Amy Powers, she is such a sweetie!
I do believe she made her mini tophat, and decorated it
with all things vintage and Christmas. I loved it.

This is Heather and she has on a great top hat and too
bad all of the detail got lost in the background. She hosted
one of my swaps and it was great to meet her and spend time
with her as well. Don't ask us to solder anything for you,
we are a little slow at it... but had a great time!

Here's my lovely Atlanta friend, Suzanne. I always enjoy her
company. Hope to show swaps and projects soon, just a
little sidetracked with Thanksgiving right now!

Fun in Omaha!

We started the fun at Hannah's Treasures...Wallpaper Heaven!

Yes, I am happy and smiling with all of my treasures!

Such a feast for the eyes....she personally covers different
size boxes.

This flocked collection caught my eye immediately! One roll
of each please!!

Many borders to choose from and how about this
wonderful cabinet.

Ohhhh, how pretty!

My roommate Kim and me. She is an avid collector of
wallpaper and was happy to add to her collection.

Kim and Cheryl showing their favorites.

Here's the small box that I purchased...very lovely. We
were all smiles while in attendance at Hannah's shop. Stayed
tuned for more of Silver Bella soon.

Silver Bella peak #2

This is the Millinery Swap. Trading with 14 others and we
are to make a millinery piece that can be from vintage or
new supplies.

I used vintage lace to make these flowers and sewed vintage
rhinestone buttons for the center. Hope my swap partners
will like them. These 3 are my favorites. Now I am off to
finish my last 2 swaps!! Happy Friday.

Silver Bella peak....and a little Homecoming

Silver Bella is almost here...I leave in 1 week. Of course, I am
still busy finishing my swaps. Why, oh why don't I start

This is the Vintage Trim swap. We are swapping with 14
others and trading three different trims ( 1 yard each) and
two vintage baubles or buttons.

I wrapped my trims around an altered tag. I think this
stamp is perfect for Silver Bella, since the vendor night
theme is "HATS".

We enjoyed Homecoming at my son's high school. I think we
did a great job of matching his tie to her dress.

Notice her corsage, it is a rose bracelet instead of the
traditional flower corsage. It was pretty!

Macy also came home from college for the weekend. It
was so great to have her home! I hope to share more
Silver Bella peaks before leaving.
