Random Holiday Cheer


Hi, everyone!  As Christmas draws near, I thought I'd just share some random Christmas pics of my home.


I changed out this little shelf in my living room to reflect the season.  (This post shows how the shelf has looked in the past.) My friend Melissa made the little pictures- she stamped old Christmas book pages and put them in tiny frames...aren't they adorable?





My mom and I were at a tag sale a few months ago when I spotted this tall display rack, and my heart started beating like crazy-you know the feeling when you first see an incredible find?  It was standing outside, all dirty and neglected, but I went running over and I almost broke into a happy dance right there, it was so cheap!  I knew that it had to come home with me, and that it would make a perfect Christmas card display stand!


It fits perfectly right behind our front door!



 This pic was taken of Keith and I a few years ago when we stayed at a B&B, and met Santa! (Yea, I've lightened my hair a bit since then :)


These were my dad's skates when he was young-I'm so glad that he kept them!



First floor 'powder room'...

Well, thanks so much for visiting me!  I hope you're all having a blessed holiday season!

    Beautiful job - and your Dad's skates are fantastic - usually it's only ladies skates I see - being from Montreal ( major hockey town ) I just love this vintage touch!
