Christmas snippets

Last week I showed you the snippet roll I sent to Mercedes; here's the beautiful one I received from Michele!
 I love it!
The wrapping was SO BEAUTIFUL I almost didn't want to open it!
 Michele's layers and details are amazing!




I'm thrilled with my snippet roll and so glad I joined in on this swap!
I thought I'd show you one last snippet roll -- I almost hate to put it in the same post as this magnificent one from Michele, but, it does go to show how different they can be!
This one is in red and green, with images from 1950s Christmas cards (or ads)
 In the corner, a wonderful brooch from that era that was a gift from Terri.

It makes me happy.
Here's the back.
I have it clipped to the tablecloth in this Santa display (bottom right.)
Did you notice this tablecloth in the background of some of my photos?  It's vintage Vera Neumann, and I stumbled on it in near perfect condition at a thrift store about a month ago.
This is why I'm not allowed to go to thrift stores these days.
It's almost Christmas!  So excited!

The details on that roll are amazing!
I love your Christmas display. That tablecloth was a real score. I seldom find any around here that are not stained or faded.

I can't get enough of those snippet rolls. I've yet to see one anywhere that I didn't like.

Congrats on the Vera score!
