A Vintage Christmas ♥ Comfort & Joy # 12 ...

Good old fashioned board games ...
I find lots of old games during my summer garage sale hunts ... especially Scrabble & I always pick them up ... the tiles are great for crafting.
This is our families "original" Scrabble board & it has seen lots of family game nights
 over the years :-)
In our family room we have a huge, oversized foot stool that doubles as a coffee table &
I like to drape it with a wool blanket and put the scrabble board out with a big silver tray full of scrabble tiles over the holidays.
With friends dropping by through the week & weekend, it's fun to have something out for them to do while I am in the kitchen getting coffee & treats ready :-)
I also have a bowl of magnetic words ... same idea
with a little note left ♥
