Welcome to our house!
Why do we all love decorating for Christmas?! I suppose nostalgia has something to do with it. There is also the fact that our homes get a face-lift for free, unless you buy new decorations each year.
I pulled this little wagon out of a dumpster this summer! It is perfect filled with fake presents and a cookie jar on our porch coffee table.
I was thrilled to find this fun Christmas ribbon on sale at The Paul Michael Company while on vacation this summer.
My husband’s childhood sled came to live with us! Oh, if that sled could talk! I’m sure there would be stories it could tell!
I made this North Pole as decoration for the seasonal membership recruitment for my chorus. The flower-pot base worked well with the empty wrapping paper tube I got from a gift shop. A little paint and ribbon and voila! I couldn’t stand to just throw it away, so it found a home on my porch.
Look what I made to go in my fancy new kitchen!!! Well, actually, I made three!
If you look closely…
you might recognize the fabric from another project! I love “free” stuff!
I love my new kitchen!
I enjoy the old things we have, too!
…like plaid Christmas plates
and vintage decorations!
I picked up these “JOY” ornaments at last year’s after-Christmas-sale. I wish they had had all the right letters in the plaid. Oh, well. I like the was the light shines behind them at night.
This great German crate (a hand-me-down from my in-laws) got relocated this year. Skeeter seems to approve.
The gray and red from the kitchen came into the den. I picked up the snowflake pillows on sale last year. I guess that is where I got to thinking about the gray for the kitchen. The sweater pillows came from Goodwill. I couldn’t commit to cutting the pillows just yet. So, these are held together with safety pins.
I truly hope you all can find TRUE JOY this season-which is only found in Christ the LORD!
“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good news of great joy, that will be to all people.” Luke 2:10
