Jumping the Gun

Hello, all,

How is your Tuesday going so far? Mine has been frustrating, trying to accomplish a task online that turned out to be a much bigger deal than anticipated. 

Despite it still being two days until Thanksgiving, one of the many times waiting on hold, my thoughts turned to Christmas. Probably everyone has seen the very cute rustic pickup trucks carrying a tree in the back. I don't have a cool vintage toy, though, so thought about making a little vignette  using a different type of ride. 

It's a reproduction old style vintage bicycle. 

This industrious rider came prepared, with a blanket and hot cocoa in a thermos to make a winter picnic of it. 

From a slightly different angle. Just the merest beginnings of an idea that may work into something better before the season is over. 

What do you think? Does Thanksgiving falling so late this year mean you're starting to lose interest a bit in the long wait till it gets here? That seems to be the case here, with me totally tired of pumpkins and all fall decor. 

Have a good one,

The old fashioned bicycle is a great idea. I haven't had any luck finding an old truck either but I would love to have one. In your banner, the books, houses and cute vignette you made in the suitcase are perfect! I love decorating for Christmas with vintage items! Happy Thanksgiving!
