A Slow Start


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...everywhere except our house! I'm getting a slow start on decorating our house this year, although Jenna managed to put up her cute little pink aluminum tree in her bedroom today. She borrowed some of my favorite ornies, but that's okay. I am just glad someone is appreciating them! I guess when you have a store to decorate, you can suffer burn out...at least I did! Here are a few shots of the store in holiday mode...


We filled an old birdbath with vintage ornaments...after Christmas it will hold seashells!



Everyone loves these little guys..we only have a couple left.


We have a woodland theme this year, filled with gnomes, forest friends and vintage elves.


Our vintage trellis is so pretty at night. We look forward to lighting it up at dusk. I hope everyone is staying warm and toasty during this season. Even though we've experienced some cold nights, I won't complain one bit about the weather in Southern Calif!

Tomorrow I will be taking a road trip to the Matilda's Mouse event with the girls. I have been wanting to make this trip for quite some time, and I can hardly wait to meet Matilda!

Your shop turned out just stunning. I do understand how burnout can come on after decorating at work all day. It helps me get in the mood if I put on some Christmas music or a good Christmas movie. Hope your Christmas is great!
