She shops…she scores!!

Today was a fantastic day. If you know anything about me, you know I have a heart for all things kitschy, retro, and/or vintage. Today I was out propping at an antique store, and I scored an authentic 1960s aluminum Christmas tree, complete with original box + instructions. TWENTY BUCKS! I can’t wait to fill it with retro baubles, and one day it will be the baby’s tree! How cute will it be in Baby Nichols’ nursery with all pink or all blue ornaments? Oh mid-century mod, I love you. 

P.S. Just did a test-run of this year’s Christmas cookie: Martha’s spiced cardamom cookies from the cover of her December issue. Can’t wait to share them with you!
