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.
