Merry Christmas 2019!

Merry Christmas Friends! 
I didn't want 2019 to slip away with out at lest one Christmas post! With all the boiler/pipe fitting/radiator work going on this year, I had to quickly come to terms that not all the usual decorating was going to get done quickly. So it has been a slow arrival of Christmas at this house!
I am still not sure if I am really ready for Christmas this year! (At lest I got all the handmade gifts done!)

My one crafty decoration this year was this wreath for the dining room window! I love the little bottle brush trees! (from Hobby Lobby, in the decorative picks aisle) I also bought a pick with the plastic red ornaments which I took apart and glued on  The Shiny Brites are so pretty on a wreath, but I was worried about storing them. So every year I have removed them from the wreath before packing it all up. This year I needed an easy look! 

Kinda hard to photograph! But so sparkly in person!

 For the last several years we have added this sleigh full of elves to the top of the refridgerator. Sometimes their seats are a little precarious and they like to come see what is in the fridge with us!

And a little Christmas Shiny Brites for the kitchen shelves! My sister found the milk glass candy dish for me. The minute I saw it, I thought it needed to be filled with Shiny Brites!

I was so excited to find this little bottle brush tree matched one of my vintage cards!

 These bells looked so vintage to me, I just had to get them from JoAnn Fabrics. I didn't really know what to do with them, so they ended up on my dressing table mirror! I love how the bring out the touches of red in my vintage cards.

This is my other Christmas crafty project! Another quilted stocking, which might not get finished before Christmas. Lol! I loved the stocking hanging on the dining room radiator, so decided I needed one to match my bedroom!

Wishing you all a lovely Christmas!


  1. Merry Christmas to you as well and am glad you have radiators this time of year 🎄
