New Year's Resolutions???

Well, honestly I'm not making any. I think when you put New Year's in front of Resolutions you might as write FAIL!!! I am though a big believer in goals! I make them all year long. I have big goals such as getting the basement completely organized and clean and small goals like getting an A on a test. It keeps me focused on the task at hand. You should always have long term and short term goals. I also don't beat myself up if my goals are not accomplished. Life gets in the way and sometimes it has another plan for you and the goal is just not one of them. So my goals right now are both big and small. Some goals I'm working now are long term and big such as becoming a nurse. Some are small term and small goals such as getting the house completely organized before the next semester starts. I don't want to waste this valuable time I have off of school. I have a full load of classes next semester which will not give me the time to do much with my home except general cleaning.

So this year nix the New Year's Resolutions and just make goals! Goals you know that you can handle and that you won't be disappointed if they are not fulfilled.

Have a wonderful New Year's. Stay safe and please if you are going out and drinking have a designated driver!!

Blessing for the New Year,

Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas....

Today I am sharing with you some of my home during Christmastime. During the holidays my family and I put out of decorations. I just love this time of year, you can put out all different pieces and it all comes together to make a festive home. It is such a change from the everyday decor that is out 10 months out of the year. So please enjoy this picture show of what makes me happy.

Welcome to the enterance way of my home. I have a small buffet cabinet that I purchased last year and it doesn't store dishes or linens but instead it holds all my school books.

I was so proud of myself with this bookcase. I opened my mind and thought of how I would like it to be and then executed it. The 3 metal stars were used this summer in screen porch and now are being used as Christmas decor.

I truly adore vintage decor! In the past few years I have been picking up little pieces here and there.There is a store in my town that carries all cute vintage ornaments and sorts. I just love it. Last year after Christmas I picked up the cutest little statues of vintage children. Aren't they adorable?

The mantle.....

Would you believe....

that I found this Santa cookie jar at a yard sale? I couldn't believe it myself. He is just so cute. On the list in his hand has the names of the children that probably owned this cookie jar. Too bad they didn't keep it in the family and put it out in a yard sale. I guess there trash is now my treasure. You never know, one day I might just paint over the names and put my childrens names in its place.
