The Wrong Kind of Vintage

 Look what I dug out of the basement last week.  I stumbled across a craft bin I haven't opened for YEARS!  Apparently I spent a good portion of 1996 tole painting woodsie ornaments.



I can totally picture myself at the kitchen table in our condo wearing my Gap overalls and Doc Martin sandals, painting my little heart out.



And good thing I owned the Christmas Simple Shapes pattern book.  I wouldn't want to stray too off course with my painting.


How else would I have known that bears wear sweater vests???



Oh, and I guess snowmen too.  Check out the sweater vest on this guy!!!



Remember when we put Raffia on EVERYTHING?  Do they still make Raffia?




 Anyway, the dozens of ornaments that didn't get painted in 1996 turned out to be a really fun Christmas craft for my kids on Saturday. 






 Here's to a great and crafty weekend!  I hope yours has been great too.
