I hope all of you had a fabulous Christmas and much fun , and good quality family time together. We had a wonderful time away and I have many treasures to show, but for now a quick picture of one of my favorite Christmas presents- This amazing vintage bodice form!!!! The whole stand rolls on wheels & is made of wrought iron! Can you believe it! WOW! Can't wait to dress her up!
And a precious Christmas memory- my son taken Christmas Eve with his favorite hammering toy. I took it on the Sepia setting on my new camera hubby got me! Yeah!!! He turns one on Christmas Eve so this will be a special day for us too. Anyways more to come soon. Hoping everyone enjoyed some good cider & a relaxing time!

I have been trying to relax this last few weeks & take in the festivities! Setting up the village, wrapping presents, my husband got to take the kids to the Nativity Story, but the highlight of the week was definiatly serving with my son at our churches Christmas banquet! We were a waiter & waitressing duo, & it was just a blast! There was great music by sweet presence, a southern gospel group, a great speaker Phil Callaway (halarious),and amazing food! It felt really good to work instead of just being a guest this year. The theme was a cruise ship & Im so impressed on the details, there was even a boat suspended from the ceiling and a cruise ship painted on the lobby wall, suit & tie, gowns, & even valet parking. It was very formal-something im totally not used to with these rugrats all day!!! So now that were right into that holiday spirit, I thought I would put one last goodie in the shop
that would make it out before Christmas!
A little carton of milk & some double fudge & white chocolate ,
and original chocolate chip cookie set. Theres one left if anyone needs a last minute gift!
Have a fantasic week preparing for the special day! If you still need to get into that holiday spirit heres a fun advent calender
to see, go watch a real Christmas
movie, or go & make some cute last minute tree decorations,,
or get making some yummy holiday baking!
Now Im off to go in the hot tub to relax and stare at the 2 feet of glistening snow!

Im so excited about the new wee village!
So this is the extent of my Christmas tree this year. ....Yes I know its kinda sad but thats life. Just a 3 foot table top tinsel tree with SOFT decorations only- due to small babe, and to many crazy kittens! I dont want any death -by- broken ornaments or the like. The kittens destroy every display I make so no large tree this year! So this year its the scotties, handmade candy cane onrnies, soft vintage heart bowlies
, and the village. I have no idea where the presents are supposed to go!
Boy, has this past week has flown by! My hubby was home , so I disapeared for awhile! Got a bit of shopping done, Christmas baking accomplished, nothing much on the craft front. Found these adorable old Christmas houses at a thrift store, though! They are so beautiful, but were dreadful colors. One was purple, bright blue & a really awful burgundy so my daughter & I spent a bit of time & painted them white, added fake painty-snow and a whole lot of glitter & now were pleased with them!
This nativity scene is so beautiful! Its out of one of my Christmas cross-stitch books that I have for sale in the shop
. I'm so sad to part with it, but my eyes are getting really bad, and I cant seem to do it anymore. I hope this book set will end up in loving cross stitch arms. Anyways, I really need to go browsing at all my favorite blogs, Ive' been so busy! I miss all the beautiful photos, so on that note gotta run.... but first I need to do a MAJOR BLOG LINK list update. I havent changed my list in 6 months!!! I need to add so very favorite bloggy friend links desperatly, and re look at what ive got on over there! I ve also done some super fun CHristmas swaps, & still waiting on one package, but cant wait to show you!
