Extreme Junkin’


A few weeks ago Hubby and I got to escape for the weekend.  We are so blessed to have great friends who planned the perfect weekend for us.  One of our days was spend doing some extreme junkin’.  I thought I would share the pictures.  Enjoy!

Christmas Card 2011

Do you ever wonder what people are like in real life?  Well, this year's Christmas card is a good clue to what our family is like.
Yes, we are odd, goofy, silly, foolish, nonsensical get the idea.
Can we still be friends?

Christmas Décor 2011


That was the goal for this year’s Christmas décor.  I have already shown you my simple mantel.  Today I thought I would share the rest of the decorations.


  The girls did all the tree decorating excepted the top part, they did such a great job.

I am excited to be finished shopping and have everything wrapped, ahhhhh!


The girls made gingerbread houses this week, Faith did the one on the right and Grace the one on the left.

If you look close you will see that the gingerbread has been put back together with hot glue.  When we opened the boxes they were both in crumbles.


And no Christmas is complete without His presence. 

The birth of Christ our Savior, that is really worth a celebration!


A few spray painted and glittered thrift store finds brighten the bookcases.


Hanging this Merry Christmas sign from the lamp shade is one of my favorite ideas this year.


The kitchen is normally where I go all out for Christmas, not this year.

There is no tree, no jars full of candy, no fun garland, no candy wreaths but yet I still love how it turned out.

Maybe simple really is better.


I wish this said Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays but it was a dollar on clearance and the colors are perfect.


Speaking of perfect colors, I found this tablecloth after Christmas last year at Kmart and I head over heels with it.

Perfect colors, perfect vintage vibe, LOVE IT.


And last a kitchen towels made from scraps of fabric and a few buttons.

That is our décor this year- much more simple than many and more extravagant than most in the world.

We are blessed and thankful this Christmas season.

Thankful for all we have, but mostly thankful for the one thing that can never be taken from us



found in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.


He is the reason for this season.

Christmas Mantel 2011



Well Hello There Stranger!

I have been enjoying life with my family, creating memories that I hope will last longer than this Christmas season.  I wanted to stop in today and show you all my Christmas mantel. 


I decided to keep it very simple this year.


I have had the reindeers for years but gave them a quick facelift with some white spray paint for this year.  I am loving the fresh clean look they have now.



I made the stocking last year and they still bring a smile to my face.  You can see them here.


But my favorite part of the mantel in the wreath.  I made it with magnolia leaves from my yard and holly leaves from my grandmother’s yard.  It is the perfect sentimental touch for my Christmas Mantel.



Hope you are all enjoying your time together with family and friends during this most special time of year.
