Welcome and thank you and more Christmas décor!

First of all welcome to the new followers and the kind commenters who have found my little place in the blogosphere this past couple of weeks.  I have not been able to get back to all of you and say hello since my mama has been in the hospital.  Hello! I look forward to getting to know you better.  I hope visiting here will be something you look forward to as together we follow Jesus.  Daily I am reminded that following Him is true joy and true peace.  I pray that His great love for you overwhelms you right now dear friends.

To those of you who have been praying for my mama a great big Thank You!  Almost three weeks ago she fell and broke her hip which resulted in a whole snowball effect of medical complications.  The beginning of this week we thought she was about to meet Jesus…but today she moved back home to her cozy little apartment at her assisted living facility.  Can you believe it?  I’m telling you, this is a miracle if ever I have seen one.  God answers prayer friends!

Well, I thought I would share a few more Christmas photos…I have not done one bit of Christmas baking or shopping, and on the outside of the house there’s not a wreath or Christmas light to be found, but the decorating inside was done before Mama’s fall. 

I posted photos of my mantel before and stated that I would probably change it up a bit…something was missing.  When I found glitter covered reindeer 2/$1 at the Dollar Tree, they were just the little something it needed.




I also have posted about Mama’s vintage suitcase before, filled with holiday greens, pinecones, and gilded fruit.  But the addition of a vintage book and framed Christmas card turned out to be the finishing touch!


On our Thanksgiving trip to Missouri I found an antique milk bottle carrier.  Here, on my distressed old blue dresser, it is filled with bottles and Christmas greens.




I love this vintage kitchen scale in my favorite gray color that I found at Camas Antiques.  Here it is topped with my Eddie Walker snow couple purchased the year we celebrated our 25th anniversary.






Love to each of you!

  1. Oh, I am rejoicing at the miraculous news about your mama! Praising the Lord for His grace and love. I love the touches you have added to your home. The framed picture and book are just what your mama's suitcase needed. Why didn't my Dollar Store have anything as cute as those reindeer? You need to take me to visit yours sometime, please. The cute little snowman sweethearts on your old scale are adorable - absolutely perfect!
