Christmas Decorating Fun...

Well, the house is as decked as it's going to be and most of the Christmas cards and shopping is done...well, almost done anyway!  Thought I'd share a little more Christmas decorating from around our home!  I always love ornament wreaths~ I made this one several years ago using vintage ornaments and Christmas goodies!  The retro glittered Merry Christmas sign is a lot of fun...

This vignette features old books, greens... and remember the scale I found out thrifting recently?

You might remember this big old plaster snowman I found at a garage sale this past summer ...

 In the dining room, more old books and a wonderful old figurine...

and looking out to the tree...I love the graphic diner sign painted on canvas...

some goodies I received from blog friends...

These three bottle brush trees make a sweet centerpiece on a vintage milk glass cake stand...

 I keep these goodies right next to the coffee maker...

for my mocha...want to join me?

I am joining The Boardwalk Bragfest
Savvy Southern Style's BTB Party

Until next time...hope you are enjoying this wondrous time...
