Gingerbread House, Cocoa Bar & Recent finds

 This year my Grandgirl decorated the gingerbread house all by herself. Growing up too fast! Do you see Jackson Brown, he thought it was something for him to eat!



 Okay, I just had to "copy" the cocoa/tea bar that I've seen around blog land! My Grandgirl LOVES it!

A few weeks ago we went to a couple of estate sales and this is all I purchased. I'm still trying to buy less. With the wedding next year, ($$$),  this house MUST be free of bins in the family room!!!

I wrapped the gifts yesterday after church and before we went to a local church that puts on a Christmas concert which was very nice.  It was a busy weekend. Went to a friend's home for dinner of Saturday and Friday I went to Erica's for some crafting fun. I'll post about that next. Also rec'd some good mail :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Warmly,
deb

Love all of your Estate Finds. Easter things are always a bit harder to find, so great job!
Grandgirl did a wonderful job with the house!
I was bad and bought a few x-mas things at Auntie M's last night! Ahhhh! LOL Erica :)

Your granddaughter is growing up and she did a great job on her Gingerbread house! Lucky lady to find a Putz house at a sale... I have a hard time finding them at sales!!

I'm not sure who is happier with the house... your Granddaughter or Jackson Brown! ;-) I do have to be careful what I buy anymore... I have too much stuff. I've been working for several years on getting rid of things ... ha ha, to make room to bring home the newest collection.

Your grandgirl is darling. I didn't realize you had one that old! Love her gingerbread house. Looks like you found some goodies at the sale and your tea/cocoa station is great! xo Diana

Darling picture of your granddaughter and her beautiful house. Your cocoa bar is so pretty. I think a few estate sales every now and then are expected. I love all of your Estate rescues. Easter and vintage Halloween are always so hard to find. Can't wait to see what you and Erica have been up to!

Even though you are trying to buy less, it's always a good idea to bring home vintage Easter when you find it. It's getting rare like Halloween!

Happy Holidays, Deb~

Hi Deb, your grandgirl is beautiful and what a wonderful job she did creating the Gingerbread House. Adorable Jackson Brown looking on is the sweetest. You can just see what he is thinking. (Would I like to get my paws on that!!) LOL
