Defining Moments

A couple weekends ago, we had the honor of selling our wares at a wonderful Holiday Bazaar.  We would like to thank Jocelyn Tobias and her daughter Sammy for hosting the Bazaar at their adorable scrapbooking shop "Defining Moments" in Wilmette at 1111 Central Street.  Anne and I pretty much shopped the entire time we were there! 


At the Bazaar were beautiful tiles, and really cute purses.  We also met Mary Felish from Premier Designs Jewerly who sells a beautiful line of jewelry.  Mary was a riot, and had such an enthusiastic spirit.   Making her debut was Sara from Chicago Sweets and Treats.  She makes delicious baked goods, which of course we had to sample some of each.   Sara has started her own blog which you have to check out.  http://chicagosweetsandtreats.wordpress.com  Follow her along on her baking journey.


We forgot our camera, so we had to use our phones for pictures. They aren't the greatest, but our display looked great, so I wanted to show you a few pics.

Julie found this vintage bird cage and Mom added the season greens and the copy cat tag.  It looked SO cheery!

This FABULOUS vintage aluminum tree is part of Julie's own collection.  We decorated it with our Christmas tags and ornaments that were for sale.

Speaking of tags...she made these out of old music sheet cards.

Coco(yes, we name our dress forms) held our Merry Christmas crown. At her feet was this great wreath mom made with felt and reindeer ornaments.

We even had stuff oozing out from under the table.  Mom's Christmas pillows under a vintage "Merry Christmas" banner.

This vintage pie safe held our Christmas houses and ball jars.  The Christmas houses were a big hit this season.

The bags of snowballs are such a hit.  They look so whimsical when placed in a bowl.  Check out the "Regent" Christmas card pack.  It is filled with the original unused Christmas cards. It is so great.  Mom makes the little snowgirls using old glass bottles. They are like snowflakes, each one is a little different!  And don't forget about the old rulers, shape them into a star for a festive look!

Here's a full table shot.


Thanks again "Defining Moments!"  We had a blast!


Also- you can find most of our Christmas items at Mary's Greenhouse at 555 S. O'Plaine Road in Gurnee. Mary had a holiday show on the 4th, but will have most of our items till after Christmas.
