It's here!!!

The holiday season is here!! And what a perfect time to begin my blog! I am so excited that this day has arrived! I am looking forward to sharing this journey with you all. I would like to thank my friends, family, and my wonderful husband Steve for all of the support and encouraging words they have given me over the past years to help me get to this place. I would like to especially thank my blog designer Rachel of Ironwood Design Studio in Maui. She has been an invaluable resource and such a wonderful support! A true pleasure to work with!

All year round I Love decorating, entertaining, celebrating, and enjoying time with family and friends. But the holiday season brings a special magic to all of these timeless activities. Maybe it is the food, the music, the warmth from the glow of twinkle lights, (wouldn't it be wonderful to have them up all year long?!), or the traditions that fill our hearts and our homes? Whatever it may be, the magic of the holidays carries with me all year long. It is my hope that I will bring this "magic" to the pages of Vintage is for Lovers every day. For isn't Love in its essence Magic!?

These pictures are of our tinsel tree decorated with hand sewn felt ornaments that my Mom made when she was in high school. They are my absolute favorite ornaments. Not only because they are so beautiful and intricate, but they epitomize the essence of the holidays: crafts, heirlooms, traditions, and LOVE! The tree is wrapped with a vintage tree skirt.
Don't you just love the vintage fabrics!? xoxo

I am in Love with vintage inspired holiday decor!

My husband gifted me with this beautiful wreath last weekend. We always add one new holiday decoration to our collection every year. As soon as I saw this unique piece of art at the Winter Fantasy Sawdust Festival, I had to have it! It is made out of moss, rock inspired felt pieces, wood, and cloves. The artist, Karen Williams, is not only a very talented artist, but a beautiful person! Karen sees images of faces in rocks. She uses rocks as her medium in all of her artwork. Please visit her website Touch Stone Artwork to see more of her amazing art!

I believe traditions add so much fun and Love to the holidays. This year we have started the "Elf on the Shelf" tradition. I am not sure if my 2 year old son James quite understands the concept yet; but we decided we would give it a try. This morning the Elf was hiding in the poinsettia wreath. I think he is so cute. Our Elf's name is "Alto."

Thank you very much for stopping by my friends! I would Love if you would take the time to click the "Follow" button on the right hand side of the page. I look forward to sharing with you tomorrow. xoxo
