We are deep in the midst of the holiday rush. Each child has a concert and the oldest has finals. This year we have an "angel" in the Christmas play! I am slightly excited. I have been wrapping up a few Christmas gifts for the family and exchanged a few with others. The forecast has a chance for snow this week too.
The kitchen is waiting for the cookies to be baked...on Tuesday.
The shelves in the hearth room are sparkling with glitter.
Kissing angels perch on my favorite books.
Putting these delicate items with my transfer ware always make me smile.
Santa's in their place.
Flocked wreaths that lean gently on heirlooms.
The light of a tole lamp and some frosty music.
A favorite vintage vignette in my tiny hutch.
I wish this cabinet were twice as big. It holds all my favorites.
This block is a new gift from my friend Kim K. It is a child's building block with a Santa image and some anagrams. I love it. Of course I had bins full of these...that I donated to my kids preschool. I love that Kim always sees something wonderful in an ordinary item.
My kids are too old to sit on Santa's lap now. These Santa photos are wonderful to decorate with.
Vintage tea towels in the kitchen make a beautiful statement.
Over the last few weeks I have received some of the most beautiful handmade items and gifts from my wonderful blogging pals. Each one of them so loved. Thank you all for thinking of me during this very busy time of the year.
I am off to finish all the last minute details. My calendar pages are full. I look forward to a few days off with my wonderful family. I will be back after I catch my breath.
