More Christmas...

The tree looks better in person and especially at night.
I made these letters last year. I stuck them on the wall with poster tack.

I found a whole box of this vintage china at a flea market. It is called Star Glow. Probably from the 50's. I especially like the sugar and creamer, they are so cute. The whole box was only $12.00.

Merry Christmas

We have decided to list our house with Keller Williams. I didn't go all out with the Christmas decorations this year. I decided to try a white christmas tree this year. I am not sure if I love it, but it is different. It is pretty lit up with white lights. I still have some shopping to do and I am trying to motivate myself.
This past weekend I went with my friends Pam and Judith to the Midtown Victorian Home Tours. It was fun and it definitely help with my Christmas Spirit. The character in those homes reminded me of years gone by when Christmas was so much simpler not like the hussle and bussle today. Homemade gifts and treats, popcorn decorated trees.
