A deer little lunch scene





Stacked up my collection 
of lunch boxes 
in the tack room today.

I only collect plaid ones....
imagine that!






My most favorite 
and very rare one
 just joined the group last week.
The GREEN one!







I decided to group them 
and created a cozy little scene 
for a fuzzy velvet
vintage baby deer I recently found.







Come on,
get your plaiditude on ...
it's December 
after all!





You're a dear for stopping by today!

Babs said...

Awww, so sweet and love the lunch boxes. I'm sitting here wondering how your lunch box has such a shiny lid, and it dawned on me that you must have put a mirror in it to reflect the scene. Alison, you're so smart.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Very cute! I think my brother had one of those lunch boxes. I donated two plaid Scotch coolers to my friend who has an antique shop~I always thought they would be great at christmas with greens coming out of them. I put a group of tiny vintage plastic deer in my etsy shop today if you want some more!!

Vicki @ CurlyWillow said...

That's a sweet little collection! I love the green one too! When did you get a facebook page. I guess I didn't notice, anyone, I liked your page... of course!

countrycharisma said...

That is just as cute as can be. I love plaid, and that just takes the cake. The little deer in the box with the bottlebrush trees is a doll. I like your style.

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello Alison... thank you so much for visiting me at my blog this morning and signing on as a follower... I can see we share many similar interests... I am signing on as your newest follower too!... love your little deer vignette... I also LOVE plaids, especially at Christmas time... looks like I have alot of catching up to do on your older posts... your blog is so lovely, I am making myself a cup of coffee and settling down and browsing through your blog... I recently found a little vintage flocked deer at the thrift store here for 75 cents... a little fawn, so lost and alone... I searched and found her mama (on Ebay) and paid her way here from back east...(quite a bit more than 75 cents!) but so happy they are reunited now happily under my vintage Christmas tree... xoxo Julie Marie

I've been collecting plaid lunch boxes for years. The minute I saw your green one, I began searching eBay, Etsy, etc. (with no luck). I've never seen a green one before. It's definitely a PRIZE!

Hello, dear Alison!,
FYI, I think I was bumped off of your subscriber list. I hadn't heard from you in a while and was going to drop you a note...then found out you've been posting! I re-subscribed, so all is good.

Love the lunch boxes! I had one of those, in the olden days. The reindeer is adorable too!
Cheers, Barbara

Alison, thank you so much for keeping me on your sidebar even though I've been out of touch for a while! I love the plaid lunch boxes, I still have my own metal lunch box in my attic and I think it's plaid with fruit on it :-) So nice to be back. Stop by and visit sometime.
