It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

I'm dragging my feet this year. Christmas is 9 days away. Our stockings aren't hung, gifts aren't purchased and where are the decorations? To get in the mood, I purchased poinsettias. They're instant motivators! These poinsettias came glittered! I planted these at the base of our front steps.I planted some small poinsettias among annuals that are still blooming.
I planted this poinsettia in a hanging planter on our front gate. I planted more glittered poinsettias among our ornamental cabbage near the front door.I found only 2 pink poinsettias. One I planted in a rusty hanging planter.The other I planted indoors in a white enamel coffee pot.Our fireplace mantel has the usual variety of candles. This year, I added a vintage pink and white necklace I purchased on eBay. I added small beaded wreaths to our living room chandelier. I wish I had pink ones.Today, I set up our Christmas houses. The white cotton batting is the only snow we'll see! The smaller houses are ornaments I have for sale at I hang our Christmas stockings and shop for gifts. Maybe by the end of the week I will have our Christmas tree decorated!

A Few Vintage Finds

I found a few vintage items to share. My general rule when purchasing items is that they should serve a purpose. However, there are rare occasions when charm trumps functionality. Vintage Metal Shovels I love to garden, but not with these!

Vintage Rug/Quilt Beaters Does anyone beat rugs or quilts these days? There's something endearing about such a task, but I must say I've never tried it. If anyone has a memory to share about beating rugs, blankets, quilts or more, I would LOVE to hear from you!
