Copy Cat

I was about to throw out my cutie patootie 2008 vintage Barbie calendar when I geniusely remembered Thrifty Decor Chick's awesome gift tags. She used her Christmas cards to punch out gift tags for next year. You know I was all over this and punched out all these fun tags for gifts. What shabby vintage girl wouldn't love one of these classic beauties hanging on a beautifully wrapped gift from yours truly??? Well, I am a copy cat...I'll admit it...thanks Sarah. ;)Note: tag punch by Stampin' Up!

Other news...like many of you I L-O-V-E after Christmas sales. It is sad the economy is not at its best but boy are they throwing those sales out there...this frugal girl is a-okay with that! I have been wanting a white Christmas tree this year...I am thinking blue, silver and white ornaments to match my black and white dining table and blue and white hutches...so shabby chic...ooo la la... ;)

Well I found her and she is a beaut! 70% off is not bad... So there I am, transferring my blue and silver ornaments from this years tree over to my new snow flocked white one... The white branches were not even totally down yet but you bet there were ornaments on there! Yeah, no one agreed on leaving my new tree up for another week or so. What? You don't want to do Christmas all over again, just for my sweet new tree??? Oh well, I will be counting down the days until this little lady will have her chance in the spotlight...361 to be exact. ;)

Oh, what would I do without my bloggy friends? Only you would understand and appreciate the madness... ;)

P.S. Thank you for all my saucy SITSTAS coming by to visit my saucy blog...I have been bombarded by such sweet comments and am finding so many more bloggy friends. You are all awesome! Leave a comment so I can find you again! xoxo

  1. Wow, you scored a new tree. You gotta keep it up till at least Valentines. Mine will be up till then at least. It's so sad to have to take the tree down just because Christmas is over. Who says!! Defy the decorating police and just DO It! Love your Blog.

  2. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 6, but I think that they have a "7" version out. It's only $70, compared to Adobe Photoshop that is around $500. You can do editing of pictures and create all of your pages on it. It's fabulous!

    I LOVE your tree.

  12. Ashley, where did you find that precious calendar? I LOVE barbie...especially vintage Barbie. Also, I am way jealous of your cute white tree. I NEED one for my kitchen. And I think you should totally leave it up. I'm thinking Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras, Easter...the possibilities are endless! Do it. Buck the decorating system.

  20. I wish I were brave enough to do an all white Christmas tree...I'd sooo be all over the red and silver ornaments and bows. I look forward to seeing your tree next year!

    Of course, you could always multitask and put a bunch of pink and red bows and hearts all over your gorgeous white tree. Just sayin'! *lol*
