The stockings were hung, along with the lights and festive decor yesterday. Check that off the to do list! Here are a few pics to share with you, just how simply I decorated this year.
Blessings to you all this coming week. We're attending a musical holiday theme program at the college this afternoon, featuring the hand bell choir. It'll be the icing on the cake for this sunny Sunday. Not one box will be unpacked today....respite!
These are my garage sale Christmas pics. I found pine cone wallies that I reuse each year. The red starfish is older than I am. It was always above the mantle each Christmas in our childhood home. I'm thrilled to have it now.
This pic shows the finger prints on the mirror! This little red coated gal has been mine since age 8. Egad...that means I've had it for FIFTY years~
The gingerbread (paper bag)garland was fun to make up.
This santa picture was one of the swapped bazaar items we traded...no cash was involved!
My mom gave me a box of old ornaments from the fifties before she left for Florida. This little tree is full of Josh's cinnamon ornies, and those old ornaments. Love 'em.
Anyhoo, it's a sunny Sunday in small town America. We went to church this morning, and enjoy this time of advent. We had our senior coffee at McD's afterwards, and shared the Sunday paper with several tables. Nice folks, nice town, nice time of year. I hope that you all enjoy this season in your own way...making new memories, while savoring those of the past too. It's a pleasant mix, isn't it?
