Give Extra, Get Extra

"Extra" gum is a great gift idea, particularly with the concept that when you give a little extra, you'll get a little extra. | #ExtraGumMoments #shop

repurpose vintage hankies into a runner

vintage table runner

This gorgeous runner is unfortunately on my table for these pics. She is waiting for her new home on a more well-deserved table of my dear friends. She will be a Christmas Gift.
