An Old Friend Visits for Christmas

I'd like you to meet an old friend of mine that came to visit in the Dining Room this year. He usually lives in the Family Area downstairs, but he's making an appearance in a special place to help us celebrate the joy of the Christmas Season.

My parents were antique lovers from the beginning, so when they found this wonderful wooden horse, it was already "vintage". He was a gift to me when I was very little. I think I may have been placed upon him only once, and after that they realized he would be better suited to being admired than ridden.

I took these first photos this morning 
and added a little sprig of holly to dress him up.
Don't you love his happy little smile?

Love the rusted little bell on his reins, 
and his perfect white chippy "coat".

He has an honored place here in the Dining Room,
 on my old metal plant stand.

This is an old wedding certificate I found this Fall at the Festival of the Ozarks Antique Show. It makes me sad that this isn't with their family any longer, but I will enjoy it for them...

This time of  year as we celebrate Christmas, we realize that it holds a special place in our hearts for family, joy, and peace that only knowing Jesus can bring. Not only knowing the little baby that was born in a manger so many years ago, but knowing Him as our precious Savior, Comforter, and Friend.

I'm joining in with these wonderful parties this week:

Make it Pretty Monday at The Dedicated House
Nifty Thrifty Tuesday at Coastal Charm
Blissful Whites at Timewashed
Wow Us Wednesday at Savvy Southern Style
Cowgirl Up at Cedarhill Ranch
Tweak it Tuesday at Cozy Little House

Sending the Spirit of Christmas your way,

Antique Festival of the Ozarks this Weekend

For anyone local to the Southwest Missouri area, just wanted to let you know that the Antique Festival of the Ozarks  will be held this weekend at the Event Center at the Ozarks Empire Fairground, here in Springfield. This is the 3rd year of the show and it just gets better and better.

 Vendors from Oklahoma, Ohio, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and all throughout the Midwest will be there. It's a good sized show, indoors, so don't worry about the cold and wind, it's warm inside! I'll be there shopping, with camera in hand!

And if you haven't joined in for Vintage Inspiration then just scroll down to the last post, still time to join the party!
