Let the Countdown Begin!

Only 3 days until Christmas, and boy do I have a lot to get accomplished before then! So tonight I thought I'd just share some random pictures of Christmas decorations in our home. 



My daughter made the collage with vintage cards




My kids made these when they were younger



From our house to yours,

Lovely! I love your collection of Santa's and the vintage card college. I like your idea of putting candy canes in a nice glass jar..I may have to try that next year. Super cute elves as well!
Have a very Merry Christmas!

Love all the vintage goodness! I think I need to add an aluminum tree to my vintage wish-list. Your corner hutch is just divine too.

Merry "vintage" Christmas!

All your vintage things are so cute, but the Santa collection made me smile. Love those candy trees too. Thanks for sharing your goodies with us. I know what you mean about having stuff to do. I'm way behind for the holidays! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

How many years ago did your children make the trees? LOL! My grandchildren know that I have jars of Christmas candy that is just for "decorative purposes," now they question any candy that's offered..."how old is it?" I'm going to save your pic of the candy trees...I'd like to make one next year. =D

OMG!!! I LOVE EVERYTHING! The candy trees are adoreable! Can you please share the how tos with me? I get you glue candies to the stryofoam cones but how to you seal it so the candy doesn't get all sticky and stuff? I love the collage of cards, the elfes, everything is just magical! I have an alumiumn tree. I may hang my cupcake ornaments on it! Don't know where to put it!
Hugs,

Love all the red and white and your fun vintage look, wonderful. The apron hanging up was a super cute idea. I did pink this year for my holiday decorating, stop by if you get a chance, Laura. Will be your newest follower.
