Shopping for vintage Christmas cheer

While in Kansas City, Rebecca and I spent an afternoon enjoying the antique and vintage vibe at the West Bottoms!
It was a very COLD day!
 I had to snap photos of just about everything that inspired me!








 I met one of my artist heroes there -- Lesa Dailey!
I bought this fabulous decoration from her -- one that I previously admired on another Lisa's Facebook feed from when she was lucky enough to attend a class!
 Lesa signed it for me and I will treasure it.

Score! Lovely inspiration - WOW and more WOW! How lucky to go antiquing and find a place all decorated for Christmas. I love the handmade piece you purchased. Yes, I can see how you will treasure it for always.

Merry Christmas,

SO MUCH beautiful inspiration!! I love the pink bottle brush trees in the silver vases, the big Santa and sleigh cut-outs and Santa sliding off the crescent moon. What are the things that looks like salt shakers with Christmas lights in the top? I can't make out the tag to see what it says. Thanks for sharing!
