Thanks to all who stopped by on last Friday and Saturday. It was great being in town, I think Dee and I were definitely shining like a diamond. Glitz and glitter , mixed in with some snow does a heart good!

We will continue to be open on  first Saturday of the month10:00a.m.- 3:00p.m.

I love decorating with Christmas vintage items.

I think I love it so much because it warms my heart thinking about all the wonderful Christmases I had as a child and the ones I cherish when my boys were young. Now I have two wonderful grandchildren to start over the traditions. More blessings to come.

A couple of my favorite things I like to use to decorate with our old sleds, skates,snow shovels and vintage ornaments. Tie some fresh greens on a sled or skates stand them on your porch or by the front door. Sling your skates over your sled. Do you have a chair on the porch? Lay your skates on your chair, tie a bow with greens or holly. Put a snowman next to it.

We will have skates decorated for you to hang and maybe a snow shovel decorated! Come in soon! They won’t last!

Fill glass bowls,jars and vases with vintage ornaments, add fake snow and greens. Instant festive decor!

Wednesday’s Recipe:

 

After your turkey dinners from Thanksgiving and Christmas, slice that turkey for delich sandwiches.

Multi grain bread, mayo, turkey, field green lettuce, salt and pepper on turkey, stonewall kitchen cranberry relish, and my favorite is a little stuffing on it. Now it is also good without the stuffing too.

This a Stuffed Tom Turkey.

Come in and get your cranberry relish. Lots of good recipes with the cranberry relish.

Deck The Halls

imageHi I promised I would share some photos of the halls decked out! I still need a to do a little more outside and final touches. But the majority is complete!  I got some good advice from one of my dearest friends. She told me to go get a wine glass and take the bottle in my room, put up my feet and relax.

Well, maybe two glasses will be o.k., right Santa??? I sure don’t want to end up on the naughty list.  I might take a few pictures in daytime because I’m not happy how they turned out.  Hope you have a relaxing evening. Sit back and enjoy the photos. We would love for our customers or our visitors on our website to share decorating photos we could post on our website.  Stay tune for some retakes of photos in daylight. And a few close ups. My decorating style is nostalgic , romantic, traditional, seaside, and glitzy .

It is everything my husband and I remember when we were growing up. This comforts me with the memories of all of our family who passed on.

As I was decorating I was thinking of my mom and my dad, grandmothers how we loved decorating and just being with one another. Baking and cooking together. They were special times. I’m trying to pass on those special moments to my grandchildren . Make sure you take time to be with your family and friends. That is what is important. And we must remember why we celebrate Christmas. Jesus is the reason for the season.

Thanks for visiting . P.S. Tomorrow we will discuss some of my decorations, right now I’m going to have that wine! You too, join me!
