Antique Rocking Horse on the Mantel...

I thought I'd share a few more pics of my antique rocking horse
 on the mantel, that I showed yesterday in the house tour.

If you're coming from any of the 
Homes on the Christmas Tour,

My Mom was telling me this week, how she and my dad answered an ad for it in the paper, around the time of my second or third birthday. This was before the age of the heavy plastic bouncing horsey on a big metal spring. I'm old, but I'm not as old as this horse so don't go making me older than I am! Mom said it was an antique when they found it, but it still had it's tail, mane, saddle and the red wooden stand that it set on. It had been stored in one of our barns, so between then and the time mom gave it back to me, the humidity, cold, (and mice) probably took it's toll.

Hi Everyone... and Welcome to the

I'm so excited to be part of this fun annual event!
This is the first time that I've participated and I'm really looking forward
to seeing all the ideas and inspiration that these talented bloggers will be sharing.
I know there will be many new visitors besides my own readers this week,
so I hope you'll feel welcome, as I show you around.

What's Your Favorite Christmas "Style"?

Hi Everyone, I hope you're having a great weekend!
Believe it or not, I've had this post in draft since before Thanksgiving.
I love to spend time on Pinterest filling up on Holiday Inspiration.
I thought it would be fun just to take a quick look at some 
of the different "Styles of Christmas".

Farmhouse




Fixer Upper

I believe in letting your home dictate (maybe "nudge") your style.

As I've wandered through Pinterest,
 I thought I'd share some inspiration
from a few of the trends we have in decor, now.

Kitchen China Cupboard for Christmas


I think most of us are pretty well into the decorating.
As I've mentioned, the bigger things are finished,
now it's time to "play".




One of the areas that's fun for me is in the Kitchen.
I can go a little crazy with the vintage Putz Houses and Churches.
Since I didn't put up a big tree,
I'm using a few vintage Shiny Brites here and there.
The Transferware misfits were begging for some "sprucing up".
(I guess that qualifies for a Christmas pun, tehe)
