Sharon. This little cabinet is in the "dining area".
Shirley, the NOEL from Sharon and the deer antlers I recently bought. It doesn't look "finished", but it is! LOL!
Thank you for all your very sweet and kind comments about my Christmas tree & sled. Since my hubby isn't into the Christmas spirit, it's so NICE to have my "friends" letting me know that they enjoy/like my Christmas decor. Maybe it's a "girl" thing!? LOL!!!
As you all KNOW, it's FREEZING HERE!! Actually, BELOW FREEZING!!! Too early for this. I don't mind the snow but the cold must go!
My son leaves for Hawaii on Friday for 3 weeks, (no fair!), so he will be on the beach for Christmas! I know he will have the best time. This is his 2nd trip there this year!
The Pop-Up Shop went well, considering it was Freezing outside! Thank you, Tammy for coming!!! I sold many smalls. Good to have treasures go to new homes!
Don't forget: JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!!!

Here is my 2013 Christmas Mantle.
I rec'd the good mail today. I joined "A Swap For All Seasons" and the Card, Tag and green destash arrived. Susie, from South City Hues sent me the sweetest tag with little jingle bells on it and the Christmas tree card. I'm thinking I'll keep them! Below are the goodies she sent. It's a fun swap! THANK YOU< Susie! I'm loving them!
Daughter and I went Christmas shopping today. I think I am DONE! I don't buy for many. Daughter, son, grandgirl, future SIL and my Mom. Hubby and I just fill our stockings! I also buy for a couple of friends. Now to wrap them up. I do give my 2 sister's a little something and I have that too! Surprised myself! I'm going to make a few more Christmas cards.
Tomorrow I'm working at Auntie M's in Hopkins. Hope you can come. I'll be wearing a Christmas sweater! Have to get into the holiday spirit! Small business Saturday!
Next week will fly by! Monday I'll be at the Vintage Cottage, getting it ready for the sale. On Tuesday I'll be dropping off my treasures for the AUNTIE CAKE AND FRIENDS POP UP CHRISTMAS SHOP that will be on Thursday- Sat. (SEE SIDE BAR FOR DETAILS!!) Friday is Vintage Cottage work day and Saturday is a "church" Ladies Christmas gathering, cookies and treats! I LOVE Christmas FUN!

SO, I found some "JOY" and decided that it would work in this old frame...
and it DOES! It will go on the mantle. JOY is my favorite word!
Thank you all so much for the sweet and kind comments about my cards. You are my biggest cheerleaders!
Quick note: I'm going to be a vendor at:
" AUNTIE CAKE & FRIENDS POP-UP CHRISTMAS SHOP "
go here: http://www.facebook.com/events/1414909102071954/ for all the details.
I'll post on Sunday evening with a photo of things that I will be selling there. It's a nice variety of vendors at an AWESOME home! I sure hope some of you gals can come!
Have a lovely Sunday!

I've started making my Christmas cards and here are the ones I've finished. I make about 4-6 of each one. Looks like I'm into a Dog Theme this year. I love the vintage images.
Has anyone made Stuffing in a Crock Pot??? I'm looking for a recipe for one as I'm having 10-13 people for Thanksgiving. I wish I had 2 ovens!!! Having a recipe for stuffing will help.
Saturday we are looking for "Bridesmaids" dresses. Daughter wants her "girls" to wear long black dresses. I'll take photos and share them with you! I'm sure enjoying all of this! My 2 weddings were simple! Did I tell you she has 5 bridesmaids! Anyway.... it's all good!
I'm "thinking" I might put up some Christmas on my mantle this weekend. I'll put up the tree after Thanksgiving. It's coming up quickly! How's your decorating coming along??

I was "thinking" about putting up some Christmas decor on the mantle today. Didn't happen. Feels too early and I was overwhelmed at the amount to Christmas decor to go thru. Daughter did put her tree up today. It's pretty with blue & white lights.
Have a Blessed Sunday!
