Whoa....that's a lot of photos!

That's how many photos I took on our trip to England and France!
It's going to take some time to sort through all of them.  I'm hoping to put together a 
blog post with some of them next week.
We shall see!

Candy Corn

Isn't this tree the cutest thing!
I don't do much in the way of Halloween decorating...but who could resist this sweet little thing!

I found this acorn at an arts & crafts show last winter.  
It's about 2 1/2 inches long, and it's the perfect place for a tiny treasure or two!!

Beautifully all the carving on the "cap".

Handmade in America!!  My favorite kind of gift!!
And yes, I picked up some for gifts too!!

Santa and a Snowman

The Santa is made from a kit I bought several years ago....the snowman belonged to Bill's mother. 
"Vintage looking" or "really vintage" all looks cute to me!!!

I have a Christmas cupboard with lots of treasures tucked inside.  I've had some of the treasures for a long time, some are recent thrift store purchases, and a bunch fall somewhere in between.

I've had this Snoopy mug and bowl set for about 15 years....picked it up at a little shop somewhere in Wisconsin.  I think it's so cute!  Perfect for milk and cookies for Santa too!

Take a peek at what these things are selling for on Ebay these days.  Sure hope Santa doesn't drop anything!!

Quick Craft

I picked this up after Christmas last year...maybe from Target, I really can't remember.  It's been hanging on a knob every since I brought it home.  I need to keep the inspiration in plain sight!
These would be so simple to create...a small (maybe 5 inches) circle of wire, some sparkly garland, and a bit of ribbon for a pretty bow.  Put it all together and you have the perfect spot to nestle a tiny house ornament....cute gift idea, don't you think!!
