I wanted to show you my ceramic Santa pitcher and mugs that I got at a garage sale several years ago. They remind me of Nana Marie, who was a nanny to my daughters' dad and his siblings when they were little. Nana Marie made each child a mug and wrote their names on the bottom.
The vintage tablecloth was either my Grandma T.'s or my Mom's. If I got it from Mom, she may be wondering where it went to and will want it back! She reads my blog, so, if it is yours, Mom, and you want it back, just let me know.
This is an easy little decorating trick for inexpensive ornaments. I suppose that I could have also stuck some white mini lights in there too and made it a lamp. Hey, that isn't a bad idea!
This came from my step-mom, Jill. It is a music box, and when you wind it up, Santa and his wife dance all over the mirror. A keepsake treasure for sure.
These are just some red filler for the display. I did make those heart ornaments though, a long time ago. I think I made them for Valentines Day, but they still look pretty for Christmas. I'll hang them on the tree if we ever get it put up.
When I was just a baby, my Mom worked for a pediatrician named Dr. Tingle. Dr. Tingle made a precious heirloom stocking for each of her employees children in 1959. This is mine. Thank you, Dr. Tingle! I can only knit simple scarfs; I cannot even begin to imagine how she did this:
I am participating in Rednesday, over at "It's A Very Cherry World" . Please go over there when you have a few minutes to see some other beautiful/cool red things:
I also decided to put this on Marty's Table Top Tuesday at "A Stroll Through Life ", even though it is really Wednesday. This is a tabletop display (except for the stocking), and I have a feeling that Marty won't mind that I am a day late. So, head on over there too and see what's up!
God bless, and try your to best to celebrate the positive! I am having a hard time with that lately myself, to tell you the truth.
