Hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Christmas.  We had a GREAT Christmas our son was home for Christmas Eve and Christmas day.  It was so much  FUN to have him home.  He loves to cook and he chimed right in to help.  I just love it when we are all in the kitchen together. 

The mail man was really good to me.  Renee at http://myvintagemending.blogspot.com/  sent me these GREAT patterns and the tea towel.  Thank you so much Renee you are such a sweet heart.  You should visit her blog.  It is so cute and vintagey.

Oh my, my friend Carla surprised me with this beautiful vintage wreath.  Carla has been collecting vintage Christmas ornaments and made this wreath for me.   It hangs on my wall right above our Christmas tree.  It fits so well.

Carla also included this  little vintage deer.  She painted the antlers and tail with purple glitter paint.  She knows my love for purple.  Thank you so much Carla I love them.  

My co worker Nancy surprised me with this ice skate before we left for Christmas.  She has been decorating ice skates for awhile and she knows how much I just love them.   She has done a GREAT job.  Nancy can create with anything.  Seems she always has a WONDERFUL vision.  

This is the other side of my skate.  Just to cute.  Thank you so much Nancy.   I just love all your creations.

I have more pictures to show you but I am having camera and computer problems.  Hopefully we will get it all worked out soon.

David and I moved some furniture today to add some shelves to my sewing room .  Boy did it open it up.  Made more room for my treasures and it also gave me room to collect more (giggles) 

 Hope everyone is enjoying this time of year with your family and friends.  



  1. So very SWEET... Renee is a Darling to be sure... Glad to hear you had a Merry Christmas...

  2. Donna, you have had a wonderful Christmas, and you sure are blessed! Thanks for showing the cute gifts you got. I got to cook with my mom in my new kitchen this year. It was the best. Glad you had fun with your son.

  3. Oh you lucky thing!! First I am glad to hear that you had a lovely Christmas! Love the decorated ice skate - very nice but I am green with envy over the vintage ornament wreath! Just beautiful. I made a similar wreath several years ago when we lived in CT and it even survived the trip home to Oz but two of the ornaments eventually broke and there was no easy way to patch it up. Guess I will have to make another as I think they are just beautiful!!! Lucky girl! Enjoy!
