Vintage Gift Ideas

 Hi Everyone
 Happy Saturday
Here are a few last minute Teacher gifts that 
we put together yesterday
{Love}
adding a few vintage treasures to help
give the gifts a personal touch
This year we collected cups and creamers
{this one is a Emma Bridgewater creamer}
and potted just one 
paper white bulb
{a fun family project}
The bulbs will bloom at just the perfect time
Wrapping it simply in cellophane and twine 
also protects the dirt from spilling out
in route to school
This vintage aluminum juicer is the perfect container
 for homemade white chocolate bark
we added a funky vintage porcelain handle
that can be used later as a tree ornament 
~funky and fun~
The last gift is a extra large cup filled with 
Trader Joes candy cane peppermint green tea 
so yummy
 We added a  vintage heart shaped tea strainer
 and a red and white candy cane
 Simple gifts with a vintage touch
Which gift was your favorite.....
I always remember the advice our Grandmother gave us about  giving gifts 
"Always give a gift you would be happy to receive"


romantic saying for today

"For yesterday's memories, today's love, and tomorrow's dreams I love you."
