I must have seen the same pic on Pinterest as I went digging around and came up with some of my husbands old toy trucks from when he was a child. Created my own vignette too! Love your photos!
...and your music.
Thank you! Merry Christmas! :)

I love them! Hmmm, I swear I have some old hot wheels of my husband's. Maybe there's a truck. That's a fun way to include your husband in all your prettiness, shopping for toy trucks. Thanks for the Amy Grant song. It's perfect! Hugs to you! Have a wonderful Christmas.

Shelley Davis said...

Hi Erin,

I have loved and enjoyed your blog for sometime. Only today did I notice that you live in Franklin. 14 years ago I had a car accident in your beautiful little town. It was the only time I was there, but I will never forget it. :) It is a small world.

Have a wonderful Christmas! Thanks for all the beauty and inspiration.

Blessings,
Shelley

Olive sent me over to check out your trees in trucks. Very cute. I posted a photo of one of my trucks today with bottle brush trees in the back, but no snow! Now I want snow.

pink*cherub*moon said...

I love the little trucks with the little trees! I am also way impressed that you actually went through the trouble to make it look like the trees were tied down! So adorable! I need to find myself some of those little trees - they are so sweet! Ho Ho Hugs, Leena

Deb said...

Such a beautiful post Erin & your images of vintage trucks is gorgeous! I have a few of my sons old trucks scattered on the shelves in my studio and after seeing your wonderful idea, tied on some bottlebrush trees ...instant Christmas!
