What I'm Up To......
A little peek at our living room as it looks right now ~ the 9 ft. tree is up (you can see a little corner of it reflected in the mirror) ~
The vintage ornaments are being unwrapped and placed lovingly on the tree .....

Oh, and I'm getting the shoppe ready for a big update ~ some Christmas, like the Joyeux Noel framed print above....
Some just plain cute, like these vintage scotties.....
A little sneak peek for you ~ thanks for stopping by.

What are YOU up to?

Becca...thank you for your concern. My doctors report was good. I have 3 months of no treatment, so we are very happy.

Becca,
I loved seeing some of your Christmas decorations. I imagine your 9-ft. tree is amazing. I have never had one that tall. I am glad to see there is someone like me who likes to start her decorating early. I would leave everything up all year if I could! Ha!

Thanks for the vote of confidence with my decorating paint chip choices. I appreciate your sweet comments! Amy

Morning Becca! You've been busy I see!lol I love vintage christmas ornaments. I had some really pretty ones my grandmother gave me and then we got a puppy! Well the tree came down and so did the ornaments! Heartbreaking! We no longer have the ornaments or the Dog!!!I love your shoe collection; unique and I adore old sewing supplies - you just can't get stuff like that at Walmart!!!lol Have a great rest of the week! Jeannette

Becca, thank you so much for your sweet comment about Tanner. I agree that there is always room for another furball to become a part of your family. It has been a very sad week until Tanner. He is so cute and I believe the answer to my daughters and her families grief.

I can see what you are up to. Your Christmas goodies are putting me in the mood. The scotties are so cute.
Your photos have done all your lovely things justice. So pretty.

Hugs...Jeanne

Becca,
Your vintage ornaments are so pretty. I can't wait to see your tree. It is gonna be beautiful. I've been away for a couple of days. I'm just now catching up on my favorite blog friends. I have to go and check out your Christmas blog now. Is your website new or have I just missed it somehow? I saw so many things that like. I will order something soon.
Hugs, Lee Laurie
