Peace On Earth







The Happiest of Holidays to you all !!!!
I have everone in the spirit. As you can see , noone gets by the ol' santa hats........I have them on EVERYTHING !
I cant get enough of them. It is amazing how a simple hat can add so much festivity.

Another thing that I Love is vintage glass ornaments. I pile them all over the place. In jars, bowls and arrangements. You can find them at flea markets for a few bucks a bag. They really look better than new, They have the old mercury backs inside which gives them a certain glow.


















Okay, who doesn't remember this guy? I have loved this crazy thing since I found it at a drug store 10 years ago. He is one of my favorites.







Buffalo Snow, It's the best. Now its made with glimmer added so it looks like real snow. If you put clear lights underneath it will glow.































Of course, my favorite angel.....









Just add a sprig of greenery to any existing piece and it screams "holiday" so simply.













Oh, Shakespeare, with his boa of greens....Can't you just imagine what he would think of this !!!




















A fountain of greens and lights.












A wreath on a table, Put anything inside....during a party place the puchbowl.............














His hat isnt on yet, but never fear he will get one.




































Okay, I couldnt resist these beautiful jesters. They are climbing the lighting and stringing their beads.





































Holiday Foyer.



















This guy has been with me for over 25 christmas'. He is a little worn, but every year he gets some new position. My 8 year old did this one. Cute eh?














An Antique Santos of Christ is in the foyer dressed in Muslin and accompanied by a camel.






















Santa in the kitchen. Cookies and candy are the decor of choice.






























More antique ornaments piled up













































This crazy nutcracker had a tray of treats. But......It is tough to keep sweets in this house. I eat the bulk of them , but my kids get their fare share.
























































An Antique Sign I adore. I am thinking this one might have to make it into my line, once I do Holiday that is !

















































The only time I ever have red at my house is at Christmas. I had to leave this licorice plant in the urn. It was mammoth. It dried perfectly so I had to just let it be, I think it will look amazing covered in snow.
















































Candy in the Kitchen.












I hope everyone has an amazingly wonderful Holiday, and A Happy New Year

Holy Moses, girl-where do you live??!! It looks like a castle--is it?? You must show "room view" shots. You must, do you hear???? It looks fantastic but and then there hand some old ice skates. I love it!!!!!!

Looking forward to ordering spring for the shop when all the new is added-Merry, merry Christmas.
