Christmas Front Porch

Good morning!  Today, I'm sharing pictures of my front porch.  The drawers are from an old sewing machine - I fill them with different things, depending on the holiday or season. 



An old sled and ice skates.  

My favorite Christmas wreath ever - $15.00 at Costco!

Emily and I are doing a little Christmas shopping today.  Only 5 days left!

Bedroom Christmas Decorations

I tried to keep my Christmas decorations simple this year, only using the things that I really love.  I love bottle brush trees and found this large vintage tree last year.  My bedroom is mostly neutrals and almost everything is vintage, so I put the tree on my dresser.  As you can see, I also love vintage mirrors.  The 2 smaller ones will eventually go in my bathroom.

I found these very tiny pink ornaments at the same estate sale.



A little sparkle.

Christmas Cookie Exchange

Last weekend, we had a Christmas Cookie Exchange Party to start off the Christmas season.

Emily made sugar cookies - each one decorated beautifully!

We also exchanged ornaments, which is my favorite part.

Everyone brought their favorite Christmas cookies to exchange.

Each guest went home with a selection of all the cookies and a tea favor.  Each bag had 3 different Stash Christmas tea bags.

Grace decorated the chalkboard. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

The last of my Christmas orders are shipping out tomorrow and then I'll have a little extra free time for blogging!  We had our 2nd annual Christmas cookie and ornament exchange party last weekend.  This weekend we put up the tree.  All of the other decorations are up too.  I'll share pictures this coming week.

Busy, busy...

I wish I could join Leo for a nap, but there is too much to do.  My dad is coming into town for a few days, so we are having our Thanksgiving dinner on Tuesday.  I have a little cleaning to do, laundry and grocery shopping.  All of the Christmas decorations are down from the attic and we are looking forward to decorating next weekend.  I love this time of year!
