Ain't He Sweet

I've decided not  to even try and resist buying pixies because really there's no use in it.  I just can't say no to them.  They are just too darn cute!  This one was purchased at an estate sale this weekend and is a little different than most because he is a little larger than the usual pixie.

He also reminds me of someone else....

Don't you think so???

Look at Crackle in the middle!  Doesn't my little pixie look a lot like him??  I thought so too!

I also picked up this ribbon and these Christmas seals
Love the colors....

Lots of craft ideas for these....

These are my favorites....  Several of them are flocked....

I spent a lovely day yesterday with my Dad at my sister's house listening to him tell about all the job's he had when he was a teenager.  He actually hunted alligators in Florida once!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I love pixies! Maybe that one is from Rice Krispies...if he were mine I might do a little research to see if dolls were made. But no matter...I always buy them even if they are a little shabby. I hang them (less than perfect ones) around my front door with the rest of my christmas decor...they have so far managed to survive several winters and look really cute! So jealous of your vintage Christmas finds! =D

Hey Bo! That smile is one to have in your collection for sure! He has the same face as one of my Knee Hugger Elves! It might be his big brother who went off to see the sites in the Eastern USA!

Haaa! He DOES look like the Rice Krispy guys! Too cute! I'm a vintage x-mas addict! So your finds are just my style! Love your seals...I can never have enough of those. Thanks for sharing. I like to see some x-mas in the summer!

HAHAHAHAH!!!!

FFF space GGG space! I remember that too! We learned on an electric typewriter though. Now kids learn on computers. Crazy how obsolete a piece of equipment becomes in such a short amount of time.

Oh My Goodness! I don't know how I have not visited your blog before now. I followed a little majorette thumbnail photo, and here I find so many friends. I have seen LBP, but I did not connect the two!
So many wonderful posts! The majorette post just melted my heart as did your beautiful paper art.
I'm so happy to have your blog address now!
Have a lovely week ahead! Elizabeth Creative Breathing
