dd06: peterson tree farm
one of the best parts of collecting vintage paper is that whilst making things like christmas ephemera packs and holiday journals, you are sorting through LOTS of lovely xmassy bits and it's possible to nab some of the best ones and save them for yourself! :) that's what i did with this beautiful page from an ideals magazine, which really does look quite a lot like the farm belonging to jeff's godfather, whence we get our tree each year. for the words, i experimented with a few different types of journaling card, but they covered up way too much of the illustration, so i chose to type right onto the top section of the barn. i cropped my photo-shopped photo of rain-soaked evergreens pretty tightly too... for exactly the same reason. thickers and dymo label made a nice strong title and i called it a day.

speaking of days, i hope yours is already delightful, but if not, there's still time to whip it into shape! we're hoping to put some lights and things on the trees we acquired, which should make it quite a bit more festive around here. ciao, darlings! ♥
