It can be a bit hard to feel the holiday vibe being here in Texas sometimes..no changing leaves, autumn sights and smells, heck, I’m still running my a.c.! But while it may be a challenge, I’m never hard-pressed to feel a vintage-y (is that a word? I guess it is now) a vintage-y Christmas feeling. All I have to do is take myself back to my Grandma’s kitchen in my head, no matter what time of year, and there I am.
Grandma McCarthy was an antiques dealer, a wonderful woman, and hostess who really knew how to make everyone feel special. Christmas-time was no exception, she made simple extravagant , and small details huge just by virtue of her having touched them. I’m sure that being surrounded by her love, laughter, and antiques played a huge role in my love for vintage..and love of love and laughter! If I make the people around me feel loved and special like she did, and yes, that sure does include you, then I will feel that my job here has been well done.
OK, so back to dreaming of a vintage-y Christmas, shall we?
