A view from the family room window of our walk-out rambler. We have LOTS of snow....

These "boys" have the right idea...a fire tonight sounds good.
Kailee named her doll...."Miley Hannah Montana" plus her last name....We found the chair yesterday at the thrift store along with her new winter hat. Miley has on her winter boots :)

The latest thrift store and antique store finds. Love the creamer and sugar...and I think Twyla would love the mushrooms.

Just some tags I made for a Christmas swap.

More finds and these are from an estate sale a few weeks ago as we haven't been to any for weeks.
Tonight hubby is cooking lobster tails as they were on special at the grocery store...just $4.99 a tail so we are having TWO each...they are "small".... along with a fresh salad. We haven't gone out for New Year's Eve in YEARS!!! and that's okay. We'll watch a movie and that's that!
I hope you all have a Safe and Enjoyable evening and May 2010 bring us all:
and God's continued BLESSINGS!
Deb :)

Love all your finds, wow!! Lots of snow sounds yummy as long as you can curl up in front of the fire with the furbabies, they're adorable!! Happy New Year to you my friend.
Hugs ♥ Teresa

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Oh, I Do love the mushrooms! Your boys are so lucky to have a warm spot by the fire so they don't have to be out in that cold snow. I think Kailee picked the right name for her doll, she Does look like Miley. Wonderful finds as always. You have a good eye for good stuff. Happy New Year, My Friend! Twyla

Hi Deb, Wow look at all that snow and ice, and I thought it was cold here. I'm doing the same as you for New Years Eve. I haven't been out in years either. So much nicer to spend a quiet evening at home. Have a wonderful evening and Happy New Year.

I have never tried lobster tails!

Love the recent finds! I haven't been to a thrift store in two weeks!! I think I'm starting to display withdrawal symptoms.

Hope you have a wonderful evening and a great 2010!!!

Happy New Year Deb :)
We have snow too, but my sweet Baby Bear doesn't have the good sense your boys do....he LOVES the snow and wants to be out in it! But he knows to sit on the throw rug inside the door until I dry his paws off :) Enjoy your cozy fire and yummy dinner with your hubby. Wishing you a wonderful, happy and prosperous 2010.

Lori said...

Blessings to you in the New Year, Deb!!! Looks/sounds like you had a nice, quiet New Year's too...very low key, warm and cozy!

Your estate/thrift store finds look awesome as usual! We're about to go pack up all the Christmas stuff at our space and get it ready for the new year...gotta do some more shopping too (boo know how I hate shopping...LOL) I wish like anything I could hang out with you for a weekend and go junkin' would be a blast, huh?

Best to you and yours in this new adventure called 2010...may it bring you joy and peace and lots of new fun junk!!!

Hugs & Blessings,
Becky S.
