A Little Vintage Joy

Hi Friends!

Thanks so much for your sweet comments
on my little snowy candy cups!

You know how to make a gal's day!

Wish I could show you some of the holiday
decorations around my home, but I 
won't get to them until this weekend!!

Here is a little snowy winter nest
I put together this morning in
a yummy vintage silver plate creamer.

Just love using vintage elements in my designs!

Our family is making our yearly
trek to the tree farm tomorrow!

Can't wait!  Hope to get lots of
wonderful photos with my new
camera!! Too much fun!

Have a wonderful weekend,
and splash some of your joy around!!

Holiday Pretty!

Happy Thursday!

I have been working on shop items, 
and will have a few new things listed by the end of the day!

These are one of the items, and are a little change up on my gift card buckets.  I have made them into snowy candy cups for the place
settings at your holiday table!

I can add a sweet tag so they
can double as place cards!
If you're interested in purchasing some,
hop over to the shop tonight!

Crafting Christmas is just so 
much fun!  The base of these
are little peat pots!

Just use your imagination, and
add some special handmade details
to your holidays!!

Have a lovely day!

Blissful Whites Wednesday!

Hey There!!

Hope your Thanksgiving left you
with warm, joyful memories!

I made turkey noodle soup tonight
with our of my very 
favorite things my Mom used to do.
Yum, yum!!

Earlier today,I tried to pull together 
a great post that included a giveaway...

But it just wasn't to be.

{these pretties will hit the shop tomorrow}
I promised myself I would never post blurry photos, and unfortunately the lighting was bad
and my beaten up little point and shoot
couldn't handle it!  

But all that will be cured tomorrow or 
Thursday!  I will be getting my new Nikon
DSLR delivered to my house, and I can't wait!

Note to self:  
Be sure to not let any grandy
carry around new camera!  ☺

My computer is giving me fits right now!

Something is bogging it down, and putting
ads everywhere, so I won't be able to
finish the features for this week!

No features...but you can
still link up and share your loveliness!!

My computer is going to the computer Dr.
tomorrow, and when all is well,
I'll post the giveaway!!

So glad you're joining in!

If you are participating,
remember to :





Have a lovely week!!

Did You?

OK...I just need to know where
I fit in!

Did you deck your halls for the holidays already?

If so, well, I can't wait to see it all!

If not, you're like me!  I took the weekend
off from the shop, and we've had company,
and it's just not done...

or even started. 

 but I have played a bit with some
vintage holiday baubles...
which is fun and relaxing.
Love me some vintage mercury glass
beads...a definite fave! 

Tomorrow I will get up in the attic
and do the annual pass down of boxes to my
strong hubby, and begin the process
of decking our halls!


Can't wait to get started, and
fill our home with lights and sparkles!

Have a wonderful week,
and share some cheerful holiday
spirit with those you see!

Thinking of you, my friends,
and all of the full tummies, and 
warm hearts that filled your day.


Our day of thanks was intimate,
joy filled, and low key...just lovely.

I know many of you poured yourselves
into your celebrations...and I know you
were a blessing to your family and friends.

You gave love, and you gathered joy.
It's a kind of law, you know.

You just can't keep joy away when
you share some of your extra special love
with someone.

So let's just keep sharing the love!
Who wouldn't want to gather joy?

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

Hugs and Joy!

be on my own, and for that,
I thank you from the bottom
of my heart!

From The Heart

I said on Facebook today,
that my home isn't ready for
Thanksgiving, but my heart is!


A nasty cold had me down for a week,
and I got behind in shop stuff, and am
still trying to catch up!

My home won't be ready until late
Wednesday to receive company, but 
better late than never!! 

Until then, I'll just kind of long
for a cleaning fairy to come here,
wave her magic wand, and give
our home some wonderful Country Living
Thanksgiving lovin!!
stamped cute!

If you see her, be sure to
send her our way, ok?

May God richly bless your time
with family and friends, and fill
your heart with gratitude for
all of your many blessings!
I'm so thankful for your friendship,
and pray that your holiday season
will be full of joy and wonder! 

Blissful Whites Wednesday 
link will be up tomorrow evening!!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Hugs and Love!
