I also stuffed it with some goodies. I was walking instead of driving that day but it was crazy windy, so thanks to my co-worker Nick who offered to drive me home.
I picked up some wintery wool skirts and a 1950s hand-held mirror.
Yay, now my beloved blankies have a home!
I've also started collecting vintage beauty supplies. I first got my 1950s train case from Peggy a few months back, and along the way I've collected vintage thinning sheers and a Marcel waver/curler from a farm auction (Thanks Dan!) and some never-used Harrods makeup brushes in a cute green carrying case (Thanks mom!) and now the mirror. All I need is a big vanity and I'm all set. (Note: I don't actually use the curler, thinning shears or makeup brushes, I just have them on display).
PS - I have challenged myself to do 90% of my Christmas shopping at local stores in Camrose, through craft fairs, Etsy or other small, independent sellers or making it myself. Of the $117 I've spent so far, I've only spent $20 in a big box store. Here's hoping I can keep it up!
