It's Christmastime!!

WOW!!! Time sure does fly I haven't made a post since Thanksgiving!!! I had a BIG weekend craft show and orders from my website so I've been keeping really busy. I'm looking so forward to some down time with my family. I wanted to share a few of my Favorite Christmas things. It will be time to take them all down in about a week and I'm not looking forward to it . I LOVE the warm coziness at Christmas!!!  Warning this blog post will be mostly pictures so I hope you enjoy them!!!

This IS the reason for the season!!! The birth of our Lord!!!

This is my small tree in my kitchen and I ordered some cranberry and popcorn garland from a blogging friend Janet she has th4e neatest things!!!


This a new Santa for this year I ordered him from a great blogging friend!


My dear friend Gen over at Old Pear Primitives made this Santa for me. Time I saw him I know I had to have one!! Thanks Gen!!! He has wonderful detail. I LOVE him!



New Cupboard print I found this year on eBay!!


This is a Special Santa that one of my APP friends sent me "Just Because" I've always commented on all of her Santa's and she surprised me with one. Theresa it touched me more that you know!! I will treasure him forever!! Again THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!


This is a close up!! I love him so much and he is so well made!! I'm not going to want to put him away after Christmas!!


I purchased this Santa from a great facebook friend Sandy and let me tell you she is very talented!! I can't wait to purchase some more of her wares.





I bought this huge trencher from  my friend Janet at the Back Yard Barn in Aiken, SC  I added a Lamb that I made and added some fresh greenery and rosehips!


I found this Mache Santa bowl on eBay and he looks so cute with the added snowballs that I made.



This is my favorite thing to use during the Holidays!!! When making cookies it gets the job done!!! :)
