Blog Party Kick Off!

I am so excited to be participating in my first ever blog party! From afar, I always savor the projects and pics of my favorite blogs. How fun it would be to participate in a blog party with these women. Well, I decided what the heck am I waiting for and jumped in!
Heather at Bella Dreams is hosting a Decorating and Craft party. Please stop by and check out all of the wonderful ideas these talented women have to offer. They are inspiring and incredibly creative!

I love Christmas! Every year I get the itch right after Halloween. This year has been so busy. I have decide to simplify my holiday decorating to give my favorite things their spotlight.
Check out the tassel hanging from my lamp - it is really an ornament!
Every year I get a new angel or a new Santa. This year, I found the Santa I wanted at Ms. Wendy's Antiques. Isn't he handsome?!

Our stockings hung by the fire with care. How many kids you ask? Really, we have two kids, three dogs and a cat who thinks he is a dog. They get treats from Santa too.
I love the white ironstone pitcher on the right. Every season, I decorate it with something to celebrate the moment. A simple floral spray with its stem bent backward is hung on the pitcher for a little holiday glamour!

Have you seen the beautiul vignettes using cloches? This cloche, with its architectural salvage pediment and vintage doily, is home to my frosty Santa toting his shabby Christmas tree.

I {heart} paper mache Christmas houses. I do not have many. It is always fun to be on the hunt!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a warm holiday season. Stay tuned for more decorating and craft fun!
