  1. Where did you get the stockings with the names?

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      My mom made them, Shari; she made them for each of our families. Sorry, wish I could give you a link somewhere:(

  3. I love every single one of these creative Christmas decor ideas and remember them all. My favorite is still the adorable vintage first issue postal stamp ornaments! I paused the scroll just so I could take a good look at them again. Pinned 🙂

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Aw, thanks Marie:) Those ornaments were a special project. Can’t wait to get the few I kept for myself out of the Christmas bins! I wouldn’t mind a few more, either;) Thanks for pinning, friend!

  4. Lora, these ideas are all simply fabulous, whether they’d be on display in one’s home or even a shop. Thanks for the inspiration. I made those little spool wreaths last year and look forward to bringing them out again. Well-deserved feature on Vintage Charm, and I also pinned.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m so glad you enjoyed all the ideas, Rita! Fun to see a whole new season of creativity and new ideas! Thanks for pinning; am glad your friend enjoyed her spool wreath!

  5. So many junk-tastic projects, Lora! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! Pinned!

      Thanks, Cecilia, and thanks for the feature!

    Now you have my head full of ideas, as you always do when i look at your posts, your house is so wonderful, would love to see how you decorate everything for Christmas, you are so creative. Thank you for all the ideas and have a great weekend.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      So happy you’re inspired, Marlene! Christmas ideas are starting to swim around in my brain…need to get started on them soon!

    Lora, you are one of the most creative and inspirational person that I know. You are truly gifted. Talk about a ‘Purpose Driven Life”. I look at your creations in awe and amazement. Almost finished my hose wreath and am looking forward to sharing with you. Thanks for the multitude of ideas. The projects remind me of all the wonderful items I passed on as junk. Wish there was a way of recalling it all. I now look at collecting as, “From this day forward”.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Lora!
