Crafty Advent Countdown: 18 Days

I *believe* this was made by my Grandma.  My Mom’s Mom.  If not that, then it was made by my Mom a long time before she got into quilting.  Mom?  you reading?  can you help a gal out? It was made by my Grandma!

I’m generally not that into vintage things, but I just love this.  My mom was cleaning out her Christmas decorations that she never displays anymore and I snatched this up before any one else got a chance – Yay for me!  (honestly, I don’t really think anyone in my family is into vintage, so probably didn’t steal it from anyone, but still…)


I like how it is so obviously homemade, with the blue lines for placement of the embroidered patches still showing.


Just such a happy piece with great bright colors and sparkles.  How could you not smile looking at those smiling angels or this happy little town?
