More Christmas Decor...

Happy, happy Christmas that can win us back to the delusion of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!  --Charles Dickens

I found these little cuties at a thrift store a few years back.

My dear friend Heather made me this Christmas tree. I just love it...

Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn't come from a store.---Dr. Seuss

I found this tree at an antique store several years ago... an old woman had made it and when she passed away, her son sold it to the store... When I saw it I fell in love.  I put it in the dining room every year.

Some candles melted on this little church, while it was in the attic. I don't know why I put candles in the attic.

I added some German glass to the roof to hide that and it looks like a snow has fallen. :) I went out Christmas shopping yesterday and it really wasn't that busy...We don't exchange gifts with any extended family members, so Christmas shopping really is fast and easy. I was almost completely done in three hours time. I just have a few little details to finish and I will be done, except for the Christmas goodies I bake and give away.  I hope your Wednesday is blessed...

  1. Hi Amy Jo,
    I've put candles in the attic before as well. Don't know what I was thinking, with these southern summers!
    You did a great job covering up the spots with the German glass (where do you find that ~ online?)
    I love the teacup with balls, one of my favorite things to do. I really like those pretty green ones. Beautiful china pattern too!
    Now that tree is so beautiful. It fits perfectly in your lovely home.
    Good for you for getting your shopping done, my husband and I are going to venture out this weekend. This year I'm looking forward to shopping for the grandbaby!

  2. Your hutch and china are so lovely! I really like your antique tree too.

  3. This is so lovely - I sometimes forget and put candles away in the attic too - just one of those things - I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,


I love reading your comments......They mean so much to me!!!
