Let's Go Shopping at Queen of Hearts Holiday Open House

As y'all can tell, I haven't done much Christmas decorating yet.
 But, I've been shopping
Here are some of the fun holiday decorations I saw at Queen of Hearts Holiday Open House.
Warning...lots of photos...

Snow men...

...and snow women...

...so cute and made from vintage bedspreads and fun accessories.

Here's one, in another booth, that's a chef snowman.

 A cute burlap bow and red frame... 

...a wreath made from a pretty winter scarf, and trimmed with a glittery decoration.

...a candy striped Grinch chair...

 ...a sweet pair of deer...

...coastal touches...

...fur trimmed burlap stockings...

...a cozy throw and pillow...

...and a rusty porch swing with a Christmas pillow.

Anyone remember how to make a Tom and Jerry? 
Click here for a recipe if you'd like to make this traditional Christmas drink. 
Of course, the Tom and Jerry punch bowl and cups are a must.

This booth was LOADED with goodies. I think I counted 6 or 7 hutches in the small space.




I think these are coasters for your mug of hot cider. Love them.

Paper ornaments.

I really like this sleigh with the pheasant feathers and cotton bolls.

This Santa must have been at least five feet tall, and had a "sold" tag on it. He'll look great welcoming guests in someone's home .

That's all for now.
Thanks for going shopping with me. I hope y'all had fun.

What cute things you saw there! I love those snowmen and women made from the old bedspreads! The chair with the throw and pillow is like one I have in my living room that's been in the family for years.

Loved this trip! The snow people are adorable, but I really loved the coasters and the sleigh with the cotton bolls and feathers. I have decided Not to put out any Christmas until after Thanksgiving!

Fun stuff! Those snowmen and women were all decked out!

Ooh always fun to see! The snow "peopple' were cute! I bet they were weighted at the bottom. I had a pattern for a woman holding a cat that was really close to this. Looks like they used an old bedspread for them. The wreath made of the scarf is a good idea. I had one that looked like that too! I am thinking about Christmas but nothing will go up until after Thanksgving.

Thank you for taking us on the shopping trip! Loved the snowmen. "Let's go shopping" is one of my favorite titles ever (much to my husband's dismay haha).

Those snow people are adorable! So much inspiration at the Queen of Hearts. I always enjoy a virtual trip there. I hope to see it in person some day. Thanks for all of the Christmas inspiration. laurie

Babs, I was in there a couple of days before the Open House, so I didn't see a whole lot of Christmas stuff. They were in the process of getting everything ready! Love, love that place, and still think we need to meet there sometime! Hope you have a great week!
