A is for...

This quilted Letter A Tag by beckarahn is part of the impromptu clever! It's only 2 x 3 inches, so it comes in handy for all kinds of things. She suggest: Use it as a key tag, luggage tag, decorate your favorite tote bag, keep track of kids' belongings.... And look good doing it! For $7.00 pick up a couple for those travellers in your life that seem to have everything! If you'd prefer to give a gift you've made yourself, then check out the Vintage Rabbit Ornament Kit . Be sure to stop by her blog for more info on sewing and dyeing fabric.
If you'd prefer your "A" to be frivolous, fun and without function (other than to add a hint of vintage to your decor), check out the selection of Primitive Paper Mache Letters by Frippelous. At 12" tall, these antiqued painted letters are big enough to make a statement but not so huge that they will overpower the room. I say perfect on the mantel of a rustic log cabin next to a bough of pine branches for the holidays. For on $14.95 each, why not get a few? For more vintage paper mache goodies, check out this set of boxes, complete with a cute birdie and nest.
