CELEBRATIONS: Vintage Wagon & Logs Holiday Place Card

Vintage Wagon & Log Place Cards by homework (carolynshomework (1)I just love this little metal vintage wagon. I’ve had it for nearly 30 years! The little wheels actually turn and it’s so well made.

I think I have a few more of these wagons and if I don’t have enough for everyone at the table, I’ll alternate them with another type of place card. I have some vintage tart tins that I could fill with miniature pine cones that would work and round out the table.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
