Some Merry & Bright around the Homestead

 I hope you're all enjoying this holiday season, still need to pick up my Christmas tree, probably this weekend.  Here's a little peek of my place.

 Loving my Santa collection . . . some have broken over the years, the ones that are beaten up I seem to love the most.

You'll always find one of my trademark dolls in my house in any season . . . and of course, decorated for the holiday.

 I've had this doll house forever . . loving the tiny wreath on the door.

A little bit of cross stitch . . . isn't that a chubby sheep, it's a cutie.

Snowman on a stuffed star ornament . . . love his face. 

She 's the angel on top of the feather tree, normally I'll put my vintage ornaments on this tree, but this year I chose to display all my handmade creations with some simple felted garland too.

And to finish this posting I thought I would share something so precious to me, this little elephant is from one of my oldest son's birthday party cakes, moons ago when he was little, wrapped some seam ribbon around it and tagged it with the word love on polk-a-dot card stock.  Enjoy these holidays they go by so fast and remember, "No peeking because Santa knows everything" . . . Blessings!


  1. Your home looks beautiful. We had a bit of snow today so it is beginning to feel a bit like Christmas. Sandy, thank you so much for your kind words on my blog. I have had a tough time being consistent with it, so it makes me feel good that people are following! I am hoping to be a bit more focused on it in the new year!

  2. Hi Sandy, I ditto Cheryl's remarks. Also I wanted you to know that I appreciate your comments posted on this week's devotional "When Hope is Deferred." This post touched my heart too because I've been dealing with breast cancer for the past six months.

    Thanks for following my blog and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

  3. Beautiful decorations, Sandy! My mom collected Santas:) xo

  4. Love your angel and I like how you put the tiny wreath on the door :)

  5. It's fun to find the memories in all of the little things we collect to decorate for Christmas. I love that dollhouse! The elephant cake topper is such a special touch!
