Vintage ornaments make me happy!


 Hope all you guys are having a wonderful Christmas season . . . and all the goodies that come with it also.  You all know how much I love vintage Christmas ornaments, here a pic of my newest find at St. Mathews Thrift Shop in Ocean Park.  I found it over this past Summer with my Mom and sister Jeri visiting from Texas.  It cost me a whole 2.00 dollars.  Loving it :O)




 This santa in this pic is one of my oldest vintage glass ornaments and it still has a lot of color to it.  Some spots have faded, but it's still in pretty good condition.

I have a funny story to tell you about this santa . . . I had just hung him on my little tree and my oldest son, Davey came and sat down next to me and I started to tell him the history of it.  Well,  Davey moved and his foot hit the Santa and it flew off the tree.  Davey caught it in the air and we looked at each other and both started laughing.  It was so funny.  I love all my santa's but I sure do miss this one, my husband Dave aka Mr. Grumpy.


Family is everything . . . make every moment count.  Blessings :O)

Some Christmas around the house . . . some fun creations too!

I love to collect vintage postcards  . . . especially the ones that have writing on it.  I have some as old as a 100 years. Life was so much more simple back then. Sometimes it's the little things that bring us so much joy, vintage postcards are the best.  Next to the stack of postcards is one of my top hat pin cushions.  The pic below is some vintage Christmas pieces on my sofa table with some mercury glass candle holders.  Remember that oil painting on the right,  I found at the rummage sale with my Mom a little over a year ago, it only cost me a dollar.  So loving it with the Christmas decor.  I wished my Blackberry took better pics, I know I really need to invest in a good camera.


Enjoyed creating this jolly guy, named him "Santa at the Circus"



Can't get enough cute, a Christmas doll too!


A very dear friend of mine invited me to a woman's event at Calvary Church last Thursday evening and I so enjoyed it, wonderful speaker and very inspirational  . . . good way to start off this Christmas season, letting God be the center of it.  Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful season that is upon us.  Blessings :O)
