Meet the Family...

The Snow Family
that is.

This little family lives in the kitchen this year,
and they bring lots of joy and smiles with them.

Gifted by my sweet blogger friends,
they've come individually.
But have "bonded" here on the old silver tray.

Hope you're with your "family" this Christmas!

Angels Among Us

A little gift arrived in the mail a few days ago. My sweet friend Cheryl from Zany Mayd had been the winner of a necklace give away of mine last month, and just look what she sent me!

And you might say, "He's adorable, but he's a snowman!"
and I would say,
"Yes, He's a snowman, but just look at this!"

This little snowman just happens to have wings!
I think he must be a "snow angel".

Truly a sweet blessing;
just look at the details...

 I love the hat, the scarf, the little springs for arms, (and the flower bouquet). The yarn, the fringe. The spool of thread with a jewelry embellishment! I'm in love. I don't know if she knows that I collect "snow people", but this will be a treasured addition to the family!!

 Oh, and that crooked little smile!

I love this Bible verse.
It always makes me wonder...

Hebrews 13:2  Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels unawares.

Thank you Cheryl,

Just a little more white for Christmas

I still have a few more Christmas shots,
especially now that the new camera has arrived.

Santa is on his sunroom baker's rack perch.
look chilly out there?
brrrrr... it IS!!

And downstairs, Mr. Frosty shares a basket
with a somewhat strange old photo
of Santa and some elves.
Be sure and double click on the bigger photo,
then try not to be creeped out.

Paperwhites in the kitchen.
I always plant about 50 bulbs during the winter season
in various vintage containers. 

I can't say that I love their aroma,
but I DO love their delicate blossoms.
So I put up with "stinky".

And the Holiday Cupboard downstairs
which is usually the first thing to be decorated,
didn't get as much attention this season.

Our family room downstairs is darker than the rest of the house,
A great place to curl up by the fireplace,
and watch a movie.
We like it warm and cozy.

Hey, only one more
 Vintage Inspiration Friday
before Christmas!
Hope you can join in.

And today, I'm joining in at Faded Charm

Counting down to Christmas!!!!

A Basket-full of Bloggy Love

My Christmas basket of "bloggy love" runneth over!
You know how much I love you all...
you have changed my life.
I am making so many good friends,
in this wonderful land of blog.

But I have been remiss in publicly thanking a few people
 for their kind and generous expressions of friendship,
so today I want to thank some of you sweeties 
that sent some lovely awards my direction.

Theresa of 612 Riverside for the Sugar Doll Award,

for the Friends Award.

for the Kreative Blogger Award.

And Polly from Sassafras Stuff
for the Honest Scrap Award.

Each one of these lovely ladies have blessed me.
Thank you!
If you haven't met them yet,
please go by and say "Hi!"

And below I want to share with you a couple of photos
 that I have of a wonderful soldered charm necklace
 that I purchased from Debbi of Debbi Thinks Deep.
If you don't know Debbi, stop by her blog,
 because she is one sweet and talented lady.

Sweet birdie, I just love them.

love the chair side too,
and old French Dictionary pages for background.

And this little snowman fella was made by Nancy of Nancarts.
She has a great Etsy store where you can find
 one of these cuties for yourself! Thanks Nancy!

And from one of my favorite people in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD, Anne of Fiona and Twig sent me this little vintage cutie pie, "just because"! Just because she knows how much I love lambs! Anne needs no introductions. She is witty, smart, talented, and gorgeous, and one of the sweetest people you could ever hope to meet. Thank you, Annie, my sister and my friend.  "Woolsey" sits right in front of me in a place of honor everyday keeping watch while I'm on the computer! Oh, he's one busy little guy!

Extra Extra, see all about it!!!
My doorbell just rang and Surprise!
A special Christmas ornament from

Sweet little cardinal ornie,
with a Cardinal Christmas Greeting!

And last but not least one of everyone's favorite gals,
is having a
 HUGE Celebration and Give-Away!

Go by and enter,
She is one of the most giving and kind 
bloggers that I know.
