I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

A post of Christmas goodies.

After church today I came home to a lovely surprise! My cousin dropped off my Christmas present! Beautiful handmade ornaments. I absolutely love them. Plus there is something so special that a handmade gift holds. I think for someone to spend their time on something just for you really says a lot. I really like that they are not especially Christmas-y so I can keep them up all year. Here's just a few of my ornaments:

I was just saying to Tim that I was sorry we neglected to get an ornament to commemorate our trip!
A gorgeous vintage pic of my Gram :)
One of Manda.

Yesterday I baked all day long! I made 13 dozen thumbprints.I did different fillings:Tea Rose Jam,lime curd,chocolate drops,icing and sprinkles...................
I took them to a cookie exchange my aunt invited me too and came home with all of these:

Next year I want to package mine really cute. I appreciate the tins!

By Friday I was feeling about 90% and even better yesterday.So today I was felt good enough to finally make it back to church after missing a few weeks. I'm so glad I did! The choir did their Christmas Cantata.I never knew my friend Jill had such a gorgeous voice! And they sang 'O Holy Night' which is like pretty much my favorite Christmas song EVER! Speaking of Christmas songs, HERE are a few of my other favorites. I listened to Christmas music all day yesterday whilst baking.

Speaking of Favorites,Don't forget to enter my GIVE AWAY!! I'm super psyched about it. I can't wait to share with you.

Off to cut up my Hello Dolly's. I think they should be cool by now. I also have Festival of Tree's in the Scentsy warmer. My house smells AMAZING. You have no idea :)
