|Merry Christmas friends.....thanks so much for visiting my blog this past year. I appreciate each and every one of you and hope you all have a fantastic 2011!|
|I know, I know, I said I wasn't going to post again until after Christmas, but it's become a bad habit!!|
I couldn't resist sharing the ornaments that take pride of place on our tree....I get wistful every single year when I unwrap them. Our dd made all of these at school as gifts for us...my Mom didn't save any of our ornaments that we made (that I remember anyway)...maybe it was because we were a military family and moved so often that she "cleaned out" every time so we wouldn't accumlate so much? I don't know and unfortunately she's not here to ask...(
My dd feels such pride that we put these on the tree every year....they make our tree unique and special. That's why I love seeing other people's trees and hearing their stories about their "special" ornaments....isn't it fun?
|Wishing you all the happiest of holidays!|
I'll be back after Christmas, but for now I think things are gonna get a little crazy around here so I'm off to tend to my family and festive goings-on.
I do hope you all have time to carve out some space for yourself to enjoy the season..:)
See you right back here after Christmas!
|I'm linking up with Debra over at CommonGround today with her Vintage Inspiration Friday.|
|This is a vignette in a corner of my living room that is surrounded by windows. The little deer are plastic and last year I used silver glass glitter on them...now they're so much prettier! And they seem to like their new home...:)|
|These glittered houses were purchased at Home Goods last year (or was it the year before?) and they came with the frosty trees already attached...|
|The rest of the trees are ones I bleached last year....didn't care for the bright green.|
So even though most items aren't "vintage" except for the deer, at least the whole vignette has a vintage vibe to it......hop on over to Debra's and check out everyone else's stunning decor, won't you?
|These are my new candles, listed today on my Etsy. I'm starting to panic a bit....no Christmas shopping to speak of. Better get in gear, huh? Most of my gifts will be handmade this year with the exception of my 10yo dd....I'm good but I just haven't figured out how to make those darn video games yet!|
How is your shopping and crafting coming along...better than mine I hope...:).
|These sit on my foyer table...I love the old chalkware statues and the lovely candle was a gift.....it looks fabulous when lit!|
|I love my snowmen and snowwomen, part Christmas and part Winter, I can leave them up until Valentines day! (Does that make me lazy?)|
|I found a bunch of these signs last year after Christmas so I saved major $$$$, I was happy...:)|
|A sweet Etsy find.....very old and very pretty.|
|My favorite Christmas scent...it's called 'Cathedral' and it's "heavenly".|
It pretty much sums up Christmas for me.
|Just had to incorporate some old books into my display...|
Have you started decorating yet?
