OWH Labor Day Weekend VCMP

Standard

Oh my goodness, how quickly time flies – it was a year ago that I began making cards for Operation Write Home. I started with their Labor Day Weekend Virtual Card Making Party and it’s that time of year again.

The first challenge was hosted by Nancy Keller at Scrap HappensChristmas or Winter with a sketch.

Here’s my version –

To be honest, I cheated a bit. My DP is from a vintage DCWV Christmas pack. I saw the sketch and knew I’d have to use this pattern. Xerox Flecs and sentiment by Hero Arts (CL359) in Memento Tuxedo Black.

I need to have a cocktail party.

I’ve mentioned my penchant for things of a vintage nature. I love old glass and pottery, formica tables and cool old chairs. I also have a serious weakness for vintage stainless steel. If it has teak trim – bestill my heart.

I got this tray a couple of months ago –

I knew it would go well with these pieces – serving bowl and relish tray –

Yesterday, I hit my favorite thrift on sale day. They had these sets in bags. I knew I liked them, based simply on shape. It wasn’t until I got them home that I realized how much I liked them.

How freakishly practical is that? Small snack plates that are stored in a box as shown below but set up on a buffet table as shown above. I love that the base has slots for the plates and holes for the forks. I can imagine a group of hip and happening people using these in the ’60’s. I so need to have a cocktail party now.
