Friendsgiving

Celebrating Thanksgiving is a special time of the year.  It is a time where we can express how grateful we are for the blessings we have in our life and eat AMAZING food till we are ready to pop (plus the second round of turkey sandwiches, anyone?).

Most people spend Thanksgiving with their families, but we can all learn a thing or two from the show FRIENDS and celebrate with the friends in our lives too.

Each year, my friends and I celebrate the big turkey day with our families, but either the weekend before or after we come together and celebrate Friendsgiving.  This special holiday lets us celebrate being friends and all the memories we made throughout the year.  I am very lucky to have a support system and great friends, especially living away from home.  I am thankful for them every day!

Do you celebrate Friendsgiving? Let me know in the comments below or on your favorite social media site using #vintageholidays.

Football Widow

My husband is a HUGE sports fan in general, but when it comes to football…its pure LOVE. He knows player names, positions, stats, even personal details from around the league, but none more so than his beloved Patriots.

He certainly watches the Combine and the Draft, but when Pre-season begins, he breaks out his extensive Patriots wardrobe and I become a widow on Saturdays (college of course), Sundays, Mondays and sometimes Thursdays.

Football season leaves me with a lot of time to myself as he screams at the televisions in he football command center he sets up in our living room each weekend which consists of two televisions, a huge computer monitor, a laptop and an IPAD to monitor all the games and of course his Fantasy Teams.

Over the years, I have learned to really appreciate the sport of football and even have a Fantasy Team of my own, but I look forward each year to the Superbowl because I know the next day I will get my husband back. His love of football will reduce back to the occasional sports talk show until Pre-Season begins next year.

Can you relate?

Wish List Wednesday: Delta Girl Frames

 

I have been drooling over Delta Girl Frames for a LOOOONG time (too long!).

The ladies at Delta Girl Frames do truly beautiful work!  They specialize in distressed, wood frames that feature unique trim and colorful designs.  The frames come in all sizes, multi-frame configurations as well as mirror or chalk board inserts.  They are available in custom designs and the team at Delta Girl Frames will even design a gallery wall for you (for a small fee).

Delta Girl Frames also produces pallet wood states and initial circles (I love a good initial), to complete any rustic gallery wall.

The look of these frames truly fits my style which is somewhere between rustic and pottery barn (more to come on that).  I love that the designs on the frames couple art with family memories. The distressed look gives it a kiss of the vintage feel!

Frames 2

The trouble is they are outside of my budget (a 4X6 photo frame starts at $90).  The quality is fantastic, from what I can tell, but I just can’t pull the trigger for that price.  I am thinking of trying my hand at a DIY version.  What do you think?

What do you think of Delta Girl Frames?  Do they suit your style? What is on your Wish List this week? Let me know if the comments below.
