It's almost here!

Christmas is only a few days away! So it's time to drink out of this cute vintage Santa set I found this Summer.

And of course we are ALL ready to open presents!

I love this little drummer ornament. It has a made in Japan sticker still attached to the hanger.

I realized today that I haven't heard as much Christmas music as usual. Have you? This sweet little set of angels spell out one of my favorite Christmas songs. Noel. It also would have been my middle name had I been born on Christmas Eve like I was suppose to.

This little box of ornaments are so sweet cause each little ball is wrapped up in pink Kleenex's.

One of my favorite Christmas finds is this vintage Hallmark card holder. For me being such a collector of vintage cards having this is so neat! You can see the original price was only $2.50 and I only payed $2.00!

It was very stressful putting it together but most all pieces were there.

I was lucky enough to find this vintage apron today at a thrift shop 75% off.

These next two aprons I found last year after Christmas.

Naturally my first thought was "Oh, I can't wait to show these come Christmas!" I almost forgot them!

I hope your all having a wonderful weekend! I can't wait to see what everyone gets!
Wishing you happiness, Twyla and Lindsey

I love the little Noel figurines! They are so cute and the little ornament from Japan is so cute too!
We don't even have our tree up or a gift wrapped yet. I need December to start over again!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Such cute things you gals always find. The drinking glasses and tray are adorable and of course I love the NOEL angels. The aprons are great too - so glad you didn't forget them.

Merry Christmas,


Merry Christmas to all of you!

Great drinking glasses, and those aprons remind me of my Mom getting ready for the big holiday feast! Have a fun last few days.


Merry Christmas Tywla and Lindsey

The train card holder is awesome! Haven't seen anything like that. Did you use the aprons while making Christmas cookies??
We went out yesterday in the bad weather to go to an estate sale and found some items. They were discounted 20% as it was the 2nd day of a 3 day sale. I was going to stay home, but husband was going with or w/o me, so I was PRESSURED into going LOL
Enjoy Christmas!

Love the card holder. I wish they still made things like that. I love vintage Christmas things, from such a lovely wonderful time in America. I love how simple everything was.

Hi Twyla ~ I love all your vintage finds! Those aprons are too cute! That card holder reminds me of the one we had growing up...ours was made of cardboard!

Oh what a treat this post was!
Seeing all the adorable vintage Christmas decorations. You have such a wonderful eye for these things!

Thanks so very much for the very thoughtful Christmas card! I don't know how you keep up with everything!

I'm off to start the dough for my homemade pizza...a tradition...but you already knew that!

have a great evening, and stay warm! It's only about 10 degrees here in "Sunny" (not!) Brunswick, and when the wind blows, the cold cuts right through!!! BRRRRRRR!
