Well, I hope everyone’s Christmas was wonderful!

I wanted to share with you some of my gifts from fellow bloggers and my husband and kids…

A lot of the items I got from Ebay and Etsy…I got to go “shopping” for myself this year.  Thanks honey, it worked out great!


This was a Christmas lot I bought on Ebay for 12.00! 



Beautiful vintage garland and two rolls of red metal border!


A WHOLE box of vintage pink picks, most still in the wrapper…


Lots of vintage Christmas balls…


And a lot of the vintage aluminum reflectors….I can’t get enough of these….they are going to be used for a lot of things….


An so are  these….you can never have enough vintage jell-o molds! :)

See?  Like this…..I got this idea from Meri….the possibilities are endless….lol

These are all of the goodies I received from blogging buddies and my friends Meri and Cheri….Too cute and I want to thank each and every one of you…Deb, Chris, Elizabeth, Elaine, Erica, Meri and Cheri!!!!

Here is the photo of the cute white milk glass cup from Chris without the top cut off! lol


From my family….




A system to talk on my phone hands free and a CORDLESS glue gun and a paper Dremel set….


This adorable card came from my son Bryan, he didn’t even sign it, he knew I would love this vintage Santa!  He wanted to keep it “mint”, but I am going to have him sign it! :)

A few more goodies new this year…





The Santa cookie jar blow mold was one of my finds, the sweet little snowman jar came from Cheri when she bought the Christmas cottage at Hallmark.


A beautiful shadow box from my friend Meri…


Look at the details….


This wonderful “Ho Ho Ho” came from another friend, Jenny …I love it all!  Thank you so much!  Jenny informed me that after Christmas I can turn the plaque around and it will say “Oh..Oh..Oh” ! lol

And just a few more Christmas decorations…


Where I hid the cookies….they actually lasted until Christmas Day! :)


Mary E, all done up for the holidays…


an adorable faux cupcake….I am going to try my hand at these this year….



I got one of these for Meri last year and I just loved him, I was lucky to find another on Etsy!  He is a music box.

And last but not least…


Is this not the cutest graphics?  The lights are inside, but I would never use them.  Too scary…lol  Feel free to use this graphic how ever you would like…

We all were tuckered out at the end of the day….


Even Maya…..:)

I do have a You Tube video to share with you of my grand puppy as soon as my son gets it uploaded…:)  what did you get for Christmas???

If I have forgotten anyone gift wise,  I apologize now…my head is still spinning! 

Thank for stopping by….

You got some good stuff there! lucky you! I have been hoping to find some of those reflectors.. I never thought of looking on ebay. We had a great christmas too.. I am pooped out today and have done pretty much NOTHING all day.. not to mention that I fell asleep on the couch before 9:00 last night and then slept til 6:00 this morning.. thats not counting the time I slept in the car on the way to and from the city yesterday. I think I have about 10 plus hours in! I usually only sleep 5 or 6 hours. I must be whipped!
back to work tomorrow.. but were getting a major winter storm tonight.. so Im not looking forward to the drive in in the morning!
have a great week my friend!

What a glorious collection of treasures and Christmas colors! I ebay-ed a couple days before Christmas, I never win but low and behold everyone must have been shopping and baking and I won. Its a box of Christmas cards from the 50s, a Christmas village of houses and shops and happens to the the collection that inspired my Santa barns. I will send you some pics. Enjoy all your goodies!
