I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby. After 10 years I quit the day job to pursue my art as a full time passion.

The vintage alphabet party for November

The party has already started and I am a little late!

This month the letters were W and X

First a Washboard, no clue if this a reproduction, it was a found object by my hubby, he loves these as long as they look old!

a vintage sample box Washing soda!

for X, I  took a cue from Melody because I could not think of anything!
So here is X-mas....a vintage 1958 Napco candle and floral set that was my grandma's. I display it every year. I treasure it so much, it reminds me of Christmas's spent at the farm.

Want to join the party??
Hop over to Etsy Cottage Style blog to get the details!

I love your Washday collectibles!
They would be so cute in a laundry room.

Yes, X was hard...I think I cheated a little with x-stitch. LOL

I love the wash day items! Used to have a washboard in my laundry room, but it lives with someone else nowadays.

The Napco Christmas items are favorites of mine! I buy a lot of them and resell them in my antique booth. There are Santa S&P shakers in there now and just sold a cute Noel set two days ago.

Thanks for sharing!
