Happy Homemaker Tag Along Ends...


Elizabeth said it would go by quick and that it did.  Twelve dangling tags all in nursery rhyme theme hang above my bulletin board.  They remind me of persistence, friendship, and all the vintage images that inspire my daily work. 


These are my final two installments in the Happy Homemaker tag along.



November finds us warmed over a stove full of holiday food.  Most often a pie or two.  Something my Little Jack Horner knows all about.  


With just a touch of paper left to add detail Jack is mostly on his own.  Vintage buttons and dark violet millinery brighten up the tag top.


There it is...I knew he left his horn somewhere!


December leaves me dreaming if Mother Goose really did spend time with Santa Clause as they are ever so much alike.


I was on the fence about this image.  You see Frosty was such an easy sell but when I found Mother Goose and Santa complete with poinsettia hat pin and goose jingle bell collar I knew it was a must.  


For now I close the lid on my sweet tag box.  Lucky it is full to the brim.


And send it off to its new owner...Miss Betty.  Rather than wallow in the sadness that this project is over I will relish in my accomplishment and wipe the sweat from my brow and run straight for the next one...hmmm...fabric or paper?

You make the sweetest tags. Betty is a lucky girl. You are very talented. As for fabric or paper I say do both.

I love your tags, Renee! They are always as sweet as can be!

One day, I WILL figure my printer out! Maybe after I'm done with mennopause. Ha-ha!

Love the tin you pictured, too.

Did you see my new hutch yet? ♥

Well that took a lot of persistence as you did the Christmas tag exchange too. I pooped out on this one a long time back and I wondered how many did do it besides you do you know?

Darling tags - love those vintage images so much! I really wanted to join in but I was much too late. Hopefully there will be more tag swaps out there again someday. Have a merry Christmas!
