Winter wonderland retro pictures

In keeping with the Winter Wonderland theme, I took these retro pictures during my holidays just for you. They are a mixture of New Hampshire, L.A. and Boston. See, no matter where I go, I find red, retro, vintage and warmth. First stop on our virtual trip is to the That Little Spot of Red store in Hanover... Please hold as I put my fuzzy slippers on.

How cute is this card? I think the inside had a cute saying as well, but I completely forget what it was. What saying would you write?

This picture was taken at my Uncle's home in the Hollywood Hills. We spent a lovely Thanksgiving with 60 of their closet friends and family. Yes, I said 60 people. Trust me there were no leftovers at all.

See how much I loved That Little Spot of Red? These sticky notes spoke to my blogging heart.

We ate at the recommended Upstairs on the Square in Boston. It felt like a London pub and had great food. Somehow I felt a little smarter with all the Harvard students around me. I also really liked the quaint square.

You can do it little red berries...don't let the snow beat you.

This has to be one of my most favorite wreaths. My Uncle has such great taste. His entire house should be in Architectural Digest.

And here my lovelies is a picture of very cold me. I guess the Winter Wonderland didn't break my spirit as I am grinning from ear to ear. I'm pretty sure frosty the snowman is somewhere behind me. I wonder what kind of retro apron he would wear while cooking. Hmmm. I can't wait to read your thoughts on this one....

There's a little shop called The Carriage House nearby, and they have a lot of one-off items, but my favorite thing is the collection of vintage aprons.
