Jingle Bells Jingle Bells

Well we are off for Christmas break, two wks! I had made a list of things I wanted to accomplish and I have started on it. Yea! One of the things was to switch out my pie safe for all the odds and ends I had in it to include mainly my old zinc lid jar collection. Ok I had the TV on Hoarders that show that features all the people that collect uncontrollably. I told my husband if I come home with another old jar just to shoot me!

This is not even all of them but I want to save the lower shelf for a collection of old tins I have started. I filled them with staples i had in the cupboard.


I have purchased a few new gentlemen for my many trees I have this yr. I seem to have mostly the Honey and ME collection. I just love them.



I found a local restaurant that had many of them for sale. This little gal has cute decorations and her house is darling.










They will live happily on my trees!!







I stuck a few in some garland I have on the coffee table along with a flame less pillar candle I discovered at Hobby Lobby.







This cute little pail I found at a flea market on sale for $7. I added a to and from prim tag to it for the holidays!







and I splurged for this old child skate board for $25. I didn't want to pay that much but I know I could use it under the tree and all yr really. I love the old rust wheels.










Added a new picture of Taylor to the fireplace.










The Hoosier cabinet in the kitchen I added some new garland.











My main goal for the day after is some new garland. I see many of you ladies have the real thing gracing your tables and cabinets. I don't have the luxury of running out my backdoor and clipping some from a pine tree much here in Kansas. So I am on the look out for some realistic greenery this Dec. 26th.

























This little tree sits in a cheese box on my kitchen window sill with a couple of old enamelware lids.














More greenery on the entry table.

















And surprise I must have added another few pics of the pie safe. Well I think today I will get my sweet potato pie ready for the oven. The turkey is defrosting in the fridge. I'll wait on the two cheese cakes and the salads. Everyone is coming here for Christmas dinner. May you all have a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year with yours.
