My house at Christmas......

We had our first snow this morning.  It's not much to brag about but it doesn't take much for me to feel a little more in the Christmas spirit.  Thanks to the baby shower I had on Saturday, the house is decorated.  I've even done a little baking-- unfortunately, I've also done a little eating.  There are very few edibles that I have no control over.  One is my mom's wedding cake cookies and the other is white chocolate covered star pretzels.  Would you believe I have both in the house......but, I'm afraid, not for long.  I had white chocolate covered pretzels for breakfast.

Here's what it looked like in front of my house this morning.

It's so nice to have a day when I have nothing on the calendar so thought it would be a good day to post some pictures. 


This is my tree I do in the front window with all vintage ornaments.  The Santa is made by Debbie Bridges who made Santa's for us at our previous store in Galloway Village called Eli McGee Mercantile.  I have several of her Santa's and ornaments that I treasure.












Hope you've enjoyed the tour.  Perhaps now that it's decorated I can concentrate on making some gifts.  There are lots of ideas floating around in my head so we'll see if I get anything accomplished.  Stay tuned!

Oh how pretty...I love the dusting of snow. Sure wish WE had snow, but that's very unlikely. However, it is in the 40's today and we think that's COLD! :) LOVE all your vintage ornaments. Merry CHRISTmas Ya'll from Houston, TX!

I really like the new blog header, Jan! Wedding cake cookies sound delish, are they hard to make?
