It's Snowing!

It is so pretty outside this morning! It certainly adds more of a festive feel to my present wrapping, cleaning ect... It is a great day to stay inside and enjoy looking out the window. I was going to head out and do a few things. I don't mind driving in the snow, but I worry about the others on the road, so home I will stay!

I hope everyone is getting their Christmas duties wrapped up! I am sad that the season seems to be just flying by. I love this time, the decorations, music, commercials.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and if you are on the East Coast be safe!!!

It is starting to look like Christmas

My dad's high chair

This is my dad's high chair that I have had for about 28 years. It was his since he was a baby and it will be 78 years old on Dec 3! We have pics of him and his twin brother sitting in them also! I may have painted it at one point I don't remember

Our Tree

I took all the prelit white lights off. I like it so much better now, I was in the mood for colored lights this year!

Tuesday Thrift Store Finds!

I decided to pop into the thrift store on my way by today, and I am glad I did. I got this for $6.75. I collect vintage table cloths, and the snowman had a whole in the bottom so I stuck a battery operated light in it, and the tree topper was .50 cents and it works!!! My granddaughter loves to play with boxes so I am going to give her that. It has a vintage santa on it.
