A Vintage Christmas and a Holiday Note

 Merry Christmas and welcome back my sweet dears!
Today I am sharing more of my vintage style holiday decor around the house.
 I did not do nearly as much as I usually do, but I am enjoying the little special vignettes.

A Beautiful Way To Display Your Holiday Leftovers ~~Cottage Kitchen With Antique Dishwares

Hello my sweet readers and welcome back to my cottage style kitchen.
 Today I am sharing something you might already have... even more than one of!
These are called cloches in the decorating world.
You might think of them as the top of a cake stand or cheese plate.
But I use them for more than that!  All year round!!

Neutral Holiday Fireplace and Flea Market Friday #7

Hello again, another week has passed and only one share.
I had such bigger plans.
All I can say is... life is busy at the lake!
Welcome to Flea Market Friday #7!
 Today I am sharing my cute little fireplace in the living room and the antique butterscotch colored pottery.... Brown Christmas.... well, Yes!  It works.  I love my neutrals.
 Actually I hated to take the fall stuff down in this room.  I am still sticking to my "just a little bit of holiday" this year.... meaning... not destroy the house and drag everything up from the basement.  But just a bit of bling and HO-HO-HO here and there.
 So I swapped out pumpkins for grapevine trees and a metal star.
 But the Flea Market pottery stayed on display... I just love them.
My little starts of houseplants are doing so well here with the sunshine.
 It has been really cold this week, it is starting to feel like Christmas.
These cute deer containers I have had about five years.  I put them away every spring, but they are perfect for the winter months.  I have been loving anything nature themed this year.  But I have been good, just looking.... no big splurges... so far!

Okay, I have some big news... I have a home schooler now. My 13 year old is now taking online classes and will be home schooled for the rest of the year.  We have been busy getting our programs figured out, but honestly, it has went very well for us.  She has enjoyed her new schedule and I love spending more time with her every day.  But my computer time for blogging is way down... but know if I am away too long I miss everyone and miss seeing what everyone is up to!  Our dogs have loved having her home as well.  Okay, lets start the features!!

Vintage canning jars and flower frogs

I love to see what you find each week, especially when I have not been out much myself.  But these flower frogs were a steal at a dollar each!  They go for MUCH more around here.  I would use them to hold cards and pictures... can't wait to see what you do with them.
