Snow on the Way!








They are saying snow is on the way for us and under a snow advisory for 3-5 inches. It will certainly feel like Christmastime if we get that! Not too good for the antique business but I always have plenty to keep me busy. It is always exciting when the 1st snow comes!
Hey Rudolph is on tonight! It's only me here but I am going to watch it anyway. Always reminds me of being a little girl. Those Christmas and holiday memories are very special to me. I had a wonderful childhood and if I could pick a time to go back to it would be the days when my sister and I had tea parties, played with our dolls, whispering after bedtime when we were suppose to be asleep, and the main thing..............Dad paid the bills and we didn't have a clue what bills were! So I am always thankful of my happy childhood especially at Christmas. I like to get out the old photos with a magnifying glass to check out the toys we got and all the decorations.
I have to get busy but also wanted to include some pictures of more of my decorations and my pink polka dot ornaments. They are so girly, I am going to list those in my Etsy store. I couldn't get a good picture today of my pink front window but you get the idea, much prettier in person. I tucked greenery in my chandelier and then hung glass ornaments from it. The little tree is in my laundry area and I have several vintage kids toys for it. Sure wish I had more bottle brush trees but not sure where I would put them! Hope everyone has a cozy evening:-)

The window looks stunning! And I really love the pink polka dot ornaments!! We've hit a little slump in the checkbook but if there are still some available in a week or so, I'm going to get some. Blessings... Polly

Michelle,
You and I share the same memories of childhood. And I would love to go back. I felt safe. And the old shows flood the brain with memories long gone.

Stay warm honey!
Love,

Outstanding photos. That pink polka dot ornament is 2DIE4. It's so sad the holidays are over. I don't want to put away my glitz and glittery beauties.

I love your blog!
