Christmas Home Tour

Here's a sneak peek of my house decorated for Christmas.
The snowman area in the kitchen.  Which is usually the gumball machine collection area.


Mum and I made these paper mache snowmen this year.  I love this guy.  He looks like a bellhop.
This guy has the best brass cone hat.  

This girl is a favorite.  Mum made her years ago.  I also like the creepy guy in the top corner.  He is also paper mache, but painted in a Tim Burton type style.  

This is my cookbook nook on opposite side of the kitchen.  It's full of bottle brush trees, some vintage goodies, and toilet paper roll snowmen my daughter made.  


The banner across the kitchen table.  The little red sign says "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

 I will admit this Kellie Rae Roberts sign stays up year round even though she says it's Christmas.


A few more signs from the kitchen.  

China Cabinet is full of Christmas goodies. 

Vintage Christmas aprons hanging on the old bed springs.  

This is the scrawny fake tree.  Last year Kathryn asked if we could decorate it in all Disney.  Now it's our Disney tree.  

Love Frozen Charlottes.  

Candle holder gets a different twist with Shiny Brites.  


End table in the living room.

Coke crate filled with mason jars and greenery.

The real tree.  

My favorite shelf in the whole house.  So many goodies on this.  











The advent calendar.  This thing was a bear to make, but I love how it turned out.  

Even the bathroom gets a bit of Christmas spirit.





There you go.  A sneak peek around the house! What's your favorite decoration or spot in the house during the season?

Altered Jumbo Paperclips

How stinking cute is this ornament? You'd never know it was a humble paperclip.

I think it is my favorite line from MME.



I told you it was a paperclip!
I had to make one with Santa too.

Thanks for popping by.

Ornament bonanza!

I have been a busy bee making a ton of Christmas ornaments.
These tiny deer head ornaments were at Joann Fabrics.  I got one thinking it was cute.  When I mounted it in the frame and put a wreath around his neck I went out and bought two more(it was all they had).  

The frames are from Michael's.  They were originally pink, but I painted them to work for my project.  


They are so adorable I can't stand it.  
Ok.  On to the next one.  A few weeks ago I went to the Over the Roof Top show at Sweet Salvage.  My sister saw some scrabble tile ornaments and wanted to get some.  Secret confession time:  I have a Scrabble tile issue.  I hoard them.  I love them.  Whenever I find a game at Goodwill or Savers I grab it.  I told her to hold off and I would make them for her.  

I hope she likes them.  
You can see a sneak peek of my holiday decor.  You will get to see the whole house decorated in an upcoming blog post.
