The other day at Marshalls
(they just opened in our town a few weeks ago)
I saw these cute little wooden blocks
with vintage Christmas pictures on them.
I thought they would be perfect for the a window sill.

Then thanks to a tutorial I saw years ago by
Dear Sweet Carol at
The Polka Dot Closet

I wanted my blocks for the kitchen window sill,
so I looked for vintage pictures with
Christmas food themes.
Easy Pleasey . . .
You can make them too :)
Anyone, going to give it a try?
