We celebrated our 1st Christmas in our new home. I had such a great time decorating.
For someone who always like the vintage, I sure do love my JC Penney/Disney snow-globe collection. I have been venturing out on Black Friday for years to add to my collection. I am sorry that 2015 will be the last year for these gems.
I picked up the red linens a few years back at a garage sale for just a few bucks. I am so glad I finally got to use them. The china also came from a local sales site. I believe I purchased the nearly 100 piece set for about $40.
I must admit that the built-ins in our living room is one of my favorite features.
I just LOVE snowmen!
Our front yard. These sweet deer were listed on a local swap site. I think I paid about $15 for the set of 7. We will definitely have to re-strand the lights next year. We had a hard time keeping the lights on and the heads moving.
My tree may not seem special so most but it is a real treasure to me. I received this tree from my best friend about 12 years ago. She heard I did not have money for a tree; she purchased the tree at a garage sale and left it in my living room. I have used it every year since and cherish it. Did I mention that my best friend is also my ex-husband’s wife? That’s right, my children’s stepmother. We were not the best of friends at that time but this tree started us down a path to a deep, life-long friendship. If you read a post about Jessica (Jesse), now you know who that is.
My husband hung this window in the dining room for me. This is one of my many Canton treasures. I hope to post more pictures of windows from Canton, soon.
