Hey friends! We thought that we'd pop in today to share a few pics of our December Daily cart. Yes you read that right. An entire wheelie cart devoted to super cute vintagey Christmasy wintery happy crafty bits. We are suckers for tiered carts over here. I've blogged them more than a few times. Our Ikea Raskog in aqua being a big fave. This fabulous vintage style metal cart happens to be from World Market. (It also comes in a distressed white) In the past year or so we have purchased so many wonderful things from their site! It would be totally outta control if I didn't have to travel as far as Virginia to reach the location nearest to me. I speak the truth.
Of course our cart can't fit every single supply that'll go into creating pages for our December Daily album...but at the very least, we've got the basics. Vintage trims and tinsel garland, glitters, ribbons, twine, tags, stickers, vintage photos, stamps, inks, patterned papers, vintage Christmas cards, labels, and more. And for good measure we added a vintagey style pink feather tree!
We love that we can roll our cart into the living room if we find a little time away from work in the evening. Or wheel it out of the studio if we need more space for working on orders. It's a great idea for your seasonally changing craft habits...no more digging for those essential supplies...and the fresh cart full of your daily vitals will keep you inspired and motivated...knowing that when the mood strikes you'll be armed and craftily dangerous with the perfect selection and color palette of goodies.
We keep favorite tiny bits of ephemera and text, and some old photos in this sweet pink vintage Butter Mints tin, and also in the polka dotted box.
This polka dot box happens to be a vintage Storybook Doll box from the 1940's that I had found years ago. No doll included...just the box. And the icing on the cake as far as I'm concerned was the presence of the gold star sticker and Santa label. Those are not my additions...but I love to imagine how they came to be on this box. Did some little girl get the doll for Christmas? Did she also get some stickers for Christmas? Or were these added years later? I love it!
Ohhhhh and we just had to share this! Kate from Scathingly Brilliant's take on our Fauxbulous Keepsake Cake project from our book! We love how well it works as a centerpiece in her sweet little winter vignette! She also blogged a lovely review of the book and is hosting a giveaway of a signed copy! So hop on over to read it, and enter to win!
Ok, that's it. Back to elf life.
ha! xo Jenny...and Aaron says hi!
