Heirloom Party~ A few of my favorite things........

A few of my favorite things.............Can you guess why?
The following are my heirlooms........I hope you enjoy!




























Well theses are just a few pieces of my Dennison Collection which date back to 1898 but don't quote me on that~haha. I am an avid Dennison collector especially books...They are wealth of information as well a look back into the past and the way we Americans use to celebrate and craft!
These are a few of my favorite things and I hope to past them onto my children someday. May they treasure them as much as I do.
Vive' le Crepe!
P.S. I have raffle down below...It's my Birthday this Saturday and what better way to celebrate than to give away a Crepe Paper Tinsel Tiara made especially by me!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the show! Leave a comment here or down below and I will be sure to include you in the frey!

I have a Dennnison Halloween ideas book. Love it! Did they do so much crepe paper twisting back then, that they needed a special tool for it? Don't you wish they still had parties decorated with crepe paper?

Ann Denise,
these are soo wonderful! You 've inspired me to get some of these heirlooms I have 2 books and 1 crepe twister... I didn't think it would come without instructions do you know how to use it? what do you think of the results?
I'd love any imput you had. Everything is so wonderful how on earth do you find time with 5 children and summer happening to do anyof this? I'm amazed! Tell me you house isn't pristine. I bet it is though.
I'm off to declutter mine...I"m name it Purge for Peace(my peace)
I'm scooting to take the children to ice cream...(coupons for the Aqurium of the Pacific we are going thier tomarrow for Birthday celebrations) Ice cream wont hurt any right? heehe.
Warmly,
Stacy~Creativemuse
