Grace was only 7 when I stared blogging back in 2006.
Today, she turned 17. I really can't believe it!
Presents to open and pink carnations - her favorite flower.
Uncle Stephen made delicious pizza on the BBQ grill. It's been warm these past couple of weeks!
A new pillow case - perfect for the birthday girl!

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!

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.

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!
