As we scurry around like little Christmas mice, I couldn't resist sharing a few more pics and a Christmas Greetings to all of you! I am also joining Susan @ BetweennapsonthePorch for Met. Monday, Joan @ Anything Goes Here for Vintage Monday and on Tuesday another Susan, for Deck the Halls. Please visit these ladies when you have time. Hey, I know we're all busy but blogging is such a great stress reliever isn't it? But first, I wanted to share with you some awesome gifts from some awesome ladies! Dan and I were last minute Christmas shopping yesterday, and when we came home there was a little package hanging on our mailbox. Inside, was a lovely card and note and this oh so cute tassel made by our one and only Gloria! Gloria, whose blog is Happy to Be is well known in blog land but if you have missed her blog just follow my link above. She is one of the most thoughtful,kind and giving ladies ever! She also has the best sense of humor and will have you in stitches!
Gloria made this tassel just for little ole me! Isn't it just the cutest thing with the apple on top! I love it Gloria and it looks so nice on our Armoire!
Last week-end I had the pleasure to meet Jane aka (Blondie's Journal) . Of course we came bearing gifts! Jane brought me some of the cutest Snowman Christmas ornaments! I hung them on the tree the other day and they look like .....
My Met. Monday is this little wreath that I recently made for my front door, only it's the inside wreath. I am new to making bows, so please be kind. The straw wreath was purchased at a craft store for $2, the sled was $2 and the candy cane picks were a dollar a piece! The ribbon and bells were ones I had on hand! Total cost to me: $6.00! Something like this is so simple, just use floral wire and ribbon and presto, a new wreath!
By the kitchen window I added a Santa and Reindeer, garage sale finds,some faux snow, ornies and bottle brush trees. But the best part may be my view out! See Lily, my snow kitty, she thinks she's a snow bunny and she is hilarious looking as she bounds through the snow!
She is one curious kitty! But never fear, she has a Cat Door in the garage so that she can come in and out as she pleases. She is a very Country Wise Kitty and as quick as can be!
My little Rooster Bench is fluffed up for Christmas!
He sit's on top of my Vintage Sewing Machine Table!
Right next to our Christmas Tree.
I have about 30 guests coming on Christmas Day. It's my turn to hostess Hubbies side of the family so if I don't post before then, you'll know why! I will be scurring about like a Christmas mouse cooking, cleaning and wrapping presents!
Here's to a wonderful Christmas to all of you, may it be shiny and bright! Remember the reason for the season! Cindy
