When you live in a place where winter can last

Turn thrift-store items into
long-lasting winter cuteness.
|Plate and glass from Goodwill, |
vintage drawer pull from my stash.
|Broken figurine...she's missing her wings, so I gave|

|Heart and pinecones from my stash, paper Christmas|
gift I made to fit in the pixie's arms.
|Copy vintage images and postcard backs from Google Images.|
Glue them together to make your images
look like vintage postcards.

|Here is she is "plain." I 'll probably make some early spring|
scenes with her holding spring snowdrops (March) or crocus (April).
By that time, we actually get to put our scarves and mittens away!
Here are the winter scenes I used...
Your local thrift store is waiting for you!
