It's That Time of Year!

Tis The Season for enjoying
all of our Vintage Goodness

I have been so behind this year with my
Christmas Decorating. I just love to
bring out all of my Christmas Boxes and
enjoy unwrapping each treasure.
But this year has gone a little bit

Oh I am not complaining not a bit
because so far the Season has been
full of Family and Love!
When I returned from Thanksgiving in
Portland , I caught a nasty cold.

So I am really behind with my decorating!
And Gift Wrapping
and with all the small grands
I have to keep all decorations a bit higher up!

My Hutch worked out perfectly for
my Traditional Christmas Treasures
Not a whole lot of rhyme or reason just
wanted to have some Holiday Decorations in place
before they left on the 17th.

We have a live Christmas Tree table top
size, again perfect for keeping things
out of little hands reach.

And get this girls, while away in Portland
I won 2 Giveaways!! Yes what a great treat.
A Beautiful Brooch from
I just Love her Blog!

And this Cozy pair of Holiday Slippers
And Handmade Tags,
from my dear friends Twyla & Lindsey
their Blog and see what they are up to.

And for a few more peeks of Christmas
around my house.

I still had a few more of my Custom Trees
to Sell but time just ran away from me!

And a couple of my Pink Christmas
Vintage Style Cottages

I just might put them in my Shop
tonight, better late then never.

Oh and this darling Wreath was
one of my Goodwill Finds in Portland.
It is loaded with Vintage Goodies.
Had just a couple of broken bulbs
but that was an easy fix!
Not bad for $1.50

Well I sure hope you enjoyed my update and
I have a wonderful Party to attend on Sunday.
Yes her Cottage #8 I cannot wait, and I promise
to take some pictures to share. I hope you all
have a wonderful Weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs & Kisses

I love your old vintage cottages and the sweet pink ones you made. You're very creative. You don't look like you could have grandkids, but I love you story about keeping things at a certain level. I've done that so many times. It was hardest with the twins, they would divide and conquer!

Hugs, Carrie

Those houses are ADORABLE. I want to make a little village for my little girl.
I have had so many Google problems-and it isn't over-Google has no idea how to solve the problem.
Sorry I haven't been by much-I decided after weeks and weeks of non-stop Google issues, I am throwing my hands up and making much needed visits.
I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and hope you can come by for a visit.
