Christmas Pl & Decorations

Bought this mug at an estate sale. Ho ho ho....I've been busy this weekend, putting up the tree and decorating the home.

I had an Christmas Pocket Letter Swap and Marsha was my partner and she PAINTED the Christmas girl and made the "snow" talented and I LOVE IT. I will be mailing the one I made her tomorrow. THANK You, Marsha!

SO, daughter made the turkey and it was PERFECT!  Guess who is making dinner next Thanksgiving?!  She did tell me her "secret:!!

Here is what you see when you first come into the house. Grandgirl and Santa photos that are priceless to me! The one on the right is my very favorite one!

I'll be sharing more of my Christmas with you in the upcoming post. I'm looking forward to see all of your decorations for Christmas.

I'll be crafting this week with Tammy & Erica on Wednesday. Big sale at Antiques MN in Burnsville this Saturday and Sunday, 20% off most items STORE WIDE!  Booth 2F40 has some treasures! (that is our booth)

Daughter and I went Christmas shopping on Friday and I'm pretty much done!Still need a few stocking stuffers and something for hubby.

Recent Finds & Happy Mail

I went to Haupt Market last Thursday and found just a few things. Her occasional shop was decorated so awesome for the Christmas sale!!! The next sale is on small business Saturday and then another one in December.

Hubby and I went to a 2nd day sale and I found the cuteness above and the sweetness below. I love the vintage cards. These items will be going to the booths.

We, hubby & I are still going to less sales to reduce our inventory.

I also received a package from Debbie, at My Vintage Daydreams. She knows my love of themed kitchen towels and that I enjoy making cards and crafts. THANK YOU, Debbie!  You are a sweetie!

My daughter is making the turkey for Thanksgiving. I will make the rest of the meal. I think this is her first time making the turkey. She told me that my turkeys  are "dry"...oh man after all these years...someone finally told me!!

Bachman Christmas House, Dinning Rm & Kitchen

Enjoy more of the Bachman Christmas Idea house. Dinning room and Kitchen photos.

 I hope you found an idea or 2 to use for your Christmas decorating! I'm thinking my colors for this years Christmas will be, red, white & silver!  What about you?

Another wonderful fall day! The doggies enjoyed their walk and so did we.

I'm going to bake Christmas cookies on Tuesday with a friend from high school. I haven't made Christmas cookies in a couple of years.  I hope I don't eat them all before Christmas!! LOL!!!

Living Room

Here is the living room in the new color "Spatial White" by Sherwin Williams in the HGTV line. At first I wasn't loving it and thought it looked "green". It's fine and I'm happy that I didn't go with the "Unique Gray". See the chair on the top left...see below about it. I'm also looking for something to put the TV on...I think it's okay in the corner, for now.

I also bought the gray tone rug, lap blanket in grays and the "new to me" cream chair on the right of the photo that also rocks and swivels at an estate sale for $15.00! I will slowly add wall art. The clock and mirror are a MUST!

Fun week ahead: tomorrow going to the Christmas Bachman Ideas house with my Mom & Auntie, Tuesday going to the thrift stores with my girlfriend that is recovering from ovarian cancer, Wednesday is my "duty day, Thursday is Bible Study Fellowship and the singing for the "Seniors" and throw in a couple of Zumba classes. All good!

Have you seen a "Christmas tree" made from stacking suitcases? Saw one in a magazine and what a great idea...

I hope you all have a great week and some FUN!

Christmas Craft Fun & Prayers

Tammy came over today and we made these Christmas crafts. Thanks for coming over and crafting with me! Tammy made the big Santa book, snowman book and deer. I made the small book, deer and snowman. Tammy made the snowman heads and then we altered them.

Pretty sun set last week out my front door.

Baby sister will be having her "reconnect" surgery on Wednesday. No more "bag"...Prayers certainly appreciated for a complete & successful surgery! The end of the cancer journey is almost complete and now a "normal" future is ahead! Thankful for so much! God is Great!
