Holiday Home part 3

Here is the last part of my Christmas Home tour. These are ornies from my parents tree-this year I piled them in a jadite bowl.
I got the idea for the salt shaker snowmen from Mamie Janes blog. She has some wonderful projects.
I do like a touch of pink and pastels-I do up my hutch with glitter and glitz.
Got these houses from Hobby Lobby a few years ago and fun decorating them.
Here's the whole thing.
I had to share my latest thrifty find. I'd been looking for some Christmas plates to go with my Mom's Depression glass desert plates and sherberts. I found these that have a matching gold rim marked down to 75% off.
I spent a whopping total $4.00 for a complete set of four place settings. Perfect for our Christmas dinner!
I like to do a kitchen theme tree in my kitchen window. I use vintage cookie cutters, doll cups, and doll rolling pin.
Found this at Hobby Lobby this year along with the red toaster this year.
Vintage cookie book from 1940's along with my red toy stove.
Last my dutch S &P and cake plate.
I hope you enjoyed my little tour. I'm joining Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday. I really hope you all are having a wonderful time getting ready for the big day and are enjoying time with your friends and family. I'll be back right after Christmas. I've got to finish my last minute shopping, baking, and spending time with Son, who is home from college.
May peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through. Author Unknown
I wish you a Very Merry Christmas!

  5. Jadeite is so pretty all year but it's especially lovely at Christmastime. And those little salt shaker snowmen are very clever not to mention putting your mini tree in the enamelware bowl. You've got a lot of great ideas :-) Happy Holidays!

  7. Hi Leslie! I enjoyed my tour of your beautiful home, and I just love the way you decorate for the holidays, especially with the vintage toys. I think your home is my favorite, out of all that I've seen, because of all the vintage things that you use with your decorations. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  8. Hi Leslie!
    Glugg glugg ... we're awash over here about to float away. Too much rain! Did I hear yesterday that it was 80 degrees in some parts of TX? Please give us our weather back! ;)
    I love visiting with you, it always feels like home over here. (Are you inside my brain teehee?!) Or rather, my dream home, you have so many things I wish I could have and I love the way you put things together. I was going to tell you what I love best and I just started to name every single thing ... so I'll just say, I love it all and I love how you make every day special.
    Wishing you and your dear ones, the merriest of Christmases and much joy in 2011!
    P.S. Hope your Daddy is doing well!
