Thursday, December 8, 2016 Holiday Greeting Cards

Who doesn't love receiving and displaying those cherished Holiday cards. Since as early as the Victorian times, sending and receiving greeting cards has become as much a part of the Holiday tradition as the turkey and all the trimmings.

Here are some favorites.

A Quick Holiday Decorating Tip

Want a quick and easy way to dress up your Holiday fashion doll display?  Decorate a doll-sized mannequin with artificial Christmas picks or floral sprays found at craft stores such as Hobby Lobby or Michael's. Versatile floral picks are flexible and can easily be shaped and formed. Shown above: A larger artificial berry spray was cut apart and the stems were shaped to fit around the mannequin's waist. The dress form mannequin is from the Silkstone Barbie Fashion Model Collection Accessory Pack by Mattel.

Don't have  a mannequin?  No problem. A doll will do just fine....

Gene Marshall is decked out in festive Holiday attire achieved by using artificial garland and vintage Christmas picks for her delightful bubble skirt. Paired with the top from Crimson Sun, she makes a whimsical yet chic addition to any tablescape or Holiday display. Midnight Gamble Gene Marshall, top, gloves, and bracelet are from Ashton Drake. Earrings are from The Couture Touch.
