~Have a Holly Jolly Christmas~

Jerry by our Christmas tree.... And you see he had to bring his stuffed moose up there for the photo ....lol.

 In addition to all the candle making going on {which I'm loving!} 
I decided to make some of these warmer tarts too! :) 
I put a little less than half of one in my warmer to try it out and it smells just as good as a candle! :) 

A few more Christmas pictures..... if you aren't tired of looking......

{Our tree}

Before I started stuffing presents under there.... :)

Our weather is calling for a snow storm Thursday/Thursday night!!!
 I hope we get snowed in!! :) :) 
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry & Bright

Happy Monday!!
I found a couple more of these cuties while out and about.
Three of them came in this cute jar for only $4.00! Do you know how excited I was!?! 
Pretty excited! :) LOL.

I ran into a thrift store and found some vintage ornaments!!! YAY!
For the red ornaments they were only a dollar a box!!! WHAT!?! 

I've been trying to collect them for some
 fun projects and the fact I just love decorating with them and 
having them around the house :) 

I also ran into some vintage brooches, they were only a few dollars a piece.

And I got a few of these too, I thought they would make for something cute along the way!

Here's one project I made with some vintage ornaments and lace trim....

Off to wrap a few more presents! 
So many things to do this week:::
watch Christmas movies
Cookie making
Looking at Christmas Lights
Getting stocking stuffers
a couple more presents to be bought
& I'm sure much more!
Hope you enjoy the week!! 
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!!

Christmas is nearing....

Hi sweet friends! Christmas is getting so close!
We've been so busy around here, I can't believe its almost here! I hope next week slows way down and we get some snow around here for the big day! :) 

 Here's a few more pictures around the house:::

I bought this cute pillow a while back from Jodi over at My life on Cedar Street, isn't it cute!?!
She has many more cute pillows in her Etsy shop too!

 My mom and I went to a couple antique stores last week 
and I came home with a few little treasures!
I was so excited when I found these cute little elves and deer!!! 
And a very cute Christmas book.....

Hope everyone is enjoying the Holidays, I love this time of year, wish it didn't go so fast! There's so many more project to be sewn and crafts to be crafted! :) 

Happy "Holly" days!!!

Christmas happenings

It's starting to really feel like Christmas around here :)
 It just started snowing (YAY!) I hope it continues all day!
Yesterday hubby and  I got a lot of Christmas shopping done, so today I'm excited to get wrapping them!
I have some "pretty" gift wrapping ideas for some of them! My mom and dads' birthdays are both Wednesday, I just finished wrapping those gifts and now onto Christmas! ~Of course I think i'm going to need another warm cup of coffee! Sounds good to me, and enjoying the smells of Christmas around the house, Christmas light are all on, and Christmas music :) {Smiles}

I think I may use a couple brooches in my wrappings 

 Made another batch of candles these are scented "Mistletoe" & "Amaretto Nog"

 AND a sneak peak of a new creation!
 I love how this turned out!! I'm going to be making a few more
of these along with a few more pictures for you :)

Hope you have a great creative day!

Our Vintage Christmas Buffet

Here's some Christmas pictures of our buffet, 
decorated with some sweet vintage goodness!

an old train case has greens and pine cones in it.

This crate reminds me of a toy box :)

I love my Santa my mom gave me, 
I think he looks so cute sitting on the old typewriter!

I was so glad, last night I was able to make another batch of candles, a few of the girls at work wanted me to bring in a couple. They had requested the "Amaretto Nog." It smells so good! I think it's one of my favorites right now, of course, along with the "Blue Spruce." I have a Mistletoe and a Christmas scent to still try! I'm off to decorate the outsides of those candles now! Hope you have a wonderful day!
Merry Christmas! & Wishing you lots of Joy!

Light up a lantern

Decorate inside those lanterns!

I've had this idea for a few months now and was excited when I actually got to do it! 
I just took a short strand of lights
 mixes of red, silver, and white Christmas ornaments (you could use any colors)
Oh and I stuck some red and silver bells in there too!
and all you do is arrange them in the lantern!
This red one is sitting on our little table in the kitchen :) I just love
 turning it on and enjoying the pretty lights.

I also made one more ......
with greens, gold ornaments and a strand of lights
(Sorry the picture is a little blurry)

Hope you have a creative day~
Smiles, Holly
