More Christmas Fun...

It's been fun and busy around our home with all the holiday goings on this week!  Thought I'd share a little more of the Christmas decorating in our home!  I found a couple of cuties at the thrift store this week~ a fun snowman...

and this little Santa on skis...

I love vintage ornaments...

especially this wonderful old Santa bulb...

 some more vignettes from around the house...

I fell in love with this sweet little boy's coat...

The lovely tag is from my friend Sharon of My Vintage Studio ...

The mantel in the entryway is very simple this year...

simple canning jars, with snow, flameless candles, and greens...

I made the SNOW letters of cardstock and glittered them with vintage silvery glitter...

 A fun "Deer With Antlers Silhouette"  is from The Graphics Fairy  ~ printed on cardstock, and cut out to place on the reflects for a fun 3-D appearance...

 I found this cute pair of skates this week, too...such a great gingham lining!

And finally... my favorite decorations this three oldest grandchildren were here and decorated this window for us!  If you ever need coloring pages...just google'll find lots of them, all different types,  to print out on your printer!

 I'll be sharing our tree soon, too!  This week I had a fun visit to the Bachman's Holiday House...and next week I'll share the wonderful sights and  holiday ideas!

I am joining Debra at Common Ground's Vintage Inspiration Friday

Until next time...enjoy this wonderful time of year!


  1. Oh my gosh Linda! I love all your vintage Christmas things! The Santa on skis is my favorite. Are those sheep ceramic? They look exactly like the ones in my manger scene that I've had as a child. One of my sheep has a broken leg that's been glued on...that makes it all the more special to me!

  2. So many wonderful vintage items. I love the cute little boy's winter coat, it looks like it might be from the 50's don't you think? Thanks for sharing, happy holidays, Laura

  3. What an awesome post, Linda! I love the mason jar candle holders on your mantle, and the glittered "snow" turned out great! I also really love the ornaments that you gathered in bowls, and that little boy's coat is so sweet! So many wonderful touches you've added, and that you can enjoy thru the winter season, too!

  4. Linda, I love all your vintage things. My favorite is the Santa on skis. Your grandchildren did a great job on the windows.
    I'll look forward to your Bachman pictures. I was there at Thanksgiving and did post a few but I have many more.
    Have a wonderful Christmas.

  5. Dear Linda,
