Last Minute Christmas and a Blogging Break


Hi Everyone,
I've been somewhat MIA this last week before Christmas.
I had plans to share with you
 a few of my last minute projects and decorating
but this week got away from me a little.

Welcome to My Christmas Home Tour 2015

Hi Everyone, and Welcome to my Christmas Home Tour for 2015.
I've added a few more pics, so you could call this the extended version.

For those of you who are new here, or in case you haven't visited for a while,
this is our 2nd year in our new home and we're a bit more settled than last year.
We downsized by almost half in the Fall of 2014, but it's good to be here.

You can click on the photo and click again for a larger version
in more detail.

Hope you enjoy your visit!

"Reflections" on the Old Door

One of my favorite places to change things up, is on the old door in my Kitchen Sitting Area. The old door had been on the Sun porch at the old house, and moving it into the Kitchen Dining spot when we moved here, gave me the sense and feel of the old space that I loved so much.

Christmas Entry, In and Out...

Hi Everyone, are you in overdrive this week, trying to get ready for Christmas? I'm making progress, but I need to start wrapping gifts. One thing I realized I needed to do was to share pics of my Entry and front porch. I've had to get them over a span of several days, and because of the blah weather they've not consistently turned out. So, again today, I gave it a try. I'm just an "accidental photographer", meaning it's an accident when I can get good photos...

Christmas in the Dining Room



Thank you to all of you good friends, 
who came out to participate in the 
I'm still going through the links for a post of a few of your homes.
A little unexpected garbage disposal malfunction,
has me waiting for a plumber and installation.
Always fun for Christmas!
(better now, than next week!)







I thought I would change out my Milk Maid Vintage Print for my favorite
William Bouguereau Madonna, "Lambs".

"Village Churches" Mini Makeover

I think many of us collected the various "Village" Houses and Churches back in the late 90's. I know that I concentrated on finding just the white churches, without giving in to the obsession of collecting a whole village of people, shops, churches, houses, and figurines. Last thing I needed was one more "collection" of anything...

Christmas Fun on the Baker's Rack

I always like to keep the Baker's Rack in the Kitchen Sitting Area as a place to have some fun with vintage pieces. And what can be more fun than Vintage with some Christmas Cheer. The Baker's Rack is my place to mix and match and bring out the Kitsch for the Holidays.

Vintage Minis on the LED Woodsy Tree

I've been decorating and tweaking since Saturday, (you too?) and to be honest I really didn't have much of a game plan before I started. I knew I didn't want to go out and buy anything. I have tubs and tubs full of decorations, greenery, ribbon, and fun vintage Holiday goods. I knew I'd be using Plaid, but then, I use some Plaid each Christmas Season. What I really wanted was something just a little "different" than what I've done in the past.
