After our Thanksgiving travels, I can't wait to really get serious with Christmas crafting!

Such fantastic finds, that little red suitcase is now perfect and I have never seen foil flowers like that before. If you don't post between now and Thanksgiving, I want to wish you a very special time and safe travels.
PS I love all the photos of your kitties from the weekend, it looks like everyone is adjusting to each other.

Gorgeous. I love to use reflectors...the hardest part of using them is worrying that you might run out. Enjoy your holiday week as best as it can be...and rest up for the holiday glitter to come...smiles...Renee

Your crafting is just adorable. My oldest daughter was saying how she would like to have a retro Christmas, and I instantly thought of you and your fabulous finds! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I love crafting with reflectors and glad I provided some inspiration. Got lucky this weekend and found a good sized box of them.

What great makeovers, Kim! I especially love your Santa suitcase! The ric rac is the perfect addition. Maybe you can give me some ideas for craft projects using vintage petite jello molds:) I've got a stack of them, and can't decide what to create!!!
