Antique Letter Block Sentiments

Just a quick idea today...I'm sure we're all feeling the crunch of the Holiday rush. While blog-jumping this week, I came across a post by Monica at The Homespun Heart. She had a GREAT idea for decorating with the antique children's blocks that I obsessively collect. She spells out festive words with the blocks and places them around her home. I love how funky they look here in my entry with all sorts of blocks in different sizes and lettering. I have purchased most of mine at antique stores and flea markets...they are easy to find and still relatively inexpensive.

Merry Christmas!

Amber those look so pretty. I am working at the Plum Tree today so while I have 6 hours to look around I will be on a hunt for some old blocks. Super idea!

I saw this on her blog too and was wishing I had old blocks to use. Yours look great!

I'd never heard of anyone collecting these but they're really cute! I can see so many possibilities.
