Happy Mail before Christmas

Hi sweet friends!! 
I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Christmas! 
I haven't showed you a couple sweet things that I received in the mail before Christmas. 

I won this very sweet little train case all decked out by Kim over at Musings from Kim K. 
 She even included yummy cookies on the stove!
 (Those by the way are the cutest tiniest cookies!!)

 wrapped packages by Santa's feet....
 and a hung Christmas stocking on the wall!
Too cute!!
Thank you so much Kim, I just love it and have been enjoying it!
 Every time I walk past it I smile! :) 

I ordered some things from Heather over at Vintage Grey
Of course they are just more than gorgeous!! 
I just adore her work, so many beautiful pieces!!
I ordered a few sweet pieces for birthday gifts for my mom, her birthday was earlier in December.
And she absolutely loved them too!! So very pretty everything was, thank you so much Heather!!!

 A couple pictures of my mom's birthday gifts, I especially loved giving her the pretty vintage box :)

Wishing you a lovely and very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Fresh greens on the porch

Hi there sweet friends!! Happy Eve of Christmas Eve!! Santa comes tomorrow!!
I just wanted to show you our front porch real quick. My mom and I took the gator out back at her house and cut some fresh greens off the pine trees, for her porch and mine. :) 

Started decorating with them, sticking them here and there.....
{{I think it would look so much more pretty with a little white snow!!}} 

 I just love the prettiness of the fresh greens around! 

Thanks for stopping by! I know these next couple days will be busy for all us, so I want to wish you a very Merry & blessed Christmas!!!

Fireplace mantel

A few pictures of my mantel. The old fireplace mantel itself is new to me this year, my mom got it for me as an early gift so I could decorate it up for the holidays! I really like it! I thought I had a couple better pictures of it and our tree that is in front of it and to the side. I'll have to get one to show you the full view! 

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!! It's very unusual that we don't have any snow right now, or by now. Seems like we've had very gloomy days, I love when we have snow outside, it looks so pretty and it really brightens the whole house up (good for picture taking!!) 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!! 
We're planning on making lots of Christmas cookies!! 
And watching Christmas movies!!

Happy Holidays!

Hot Chocolate Bar on the Bufftet

Come on in and warm up at the Hot Cocoa Bar!
There's lots of treats and candies for you and your cup of cocoa!

 I found a hot chocolate art/chalk board that I liked online,
 so I used that as my example and put it on a chalk board in an old frame that I had. 
I already had a few paint pen chalk markers on hand. I think it turned out cute! 

 I love in the evening when the timer candles come on and give it a cute glow!

 Oh I LOVE these peppermint candy cane kisses!! 

 "Merry Christmas!!" 

Happy Holidays!! Have a wonderful weekend!!

Thrifted Snowman

Happy weekend!! 
I scored this sweet old snowman at the antique shop where I have my booth a couple days ago. 
Isn't he so cute!!?! I just love him! I think he's made out of porcelain, and underneath is hollow all the way up to his hat. 

I thought he was a great price too,  I only paid $8.56!! 
He's keeping warm next to the couch and the wire basket for now :)

I also picked up some pretty lacey trims.

Hope you have a lovely weekend!!! 
We're going to try to do a little Christmas shopping today! :) 

Christmas hugs!!
