My bedroom is the first picture. I found this white vintage wreath with glitter on the free table at my work! It goes with my lil fiberoptic tree perfectly!
The wreath has vintage plastic Santas, but my fav is the lantern. The Santas and lanterns came in a bag o' Christmas at the thrift store!
The tray is vintage Christmas. I love the graphics on the old stuff!This isn't a vintage aluminum, but it is cute! It's fiberoptic and looks awesome in the dark. The Santa is early plastic, and has been in the family as long as I remember!
I filled my china cabinet with lots of vintage Christmas. Mostly Santa Claus, but some old ornaments and boxes. I love the old boxes almost as much as the ornaments.
My back room/dining room window. Lots of silver and red vintage garland with lights! That's no curtain! It's a vintage tablecloth. Shhhh!
This is by my stove in the kitchen. I try to cram lots of potholders and other little felt items on the towel holder.
I love my metal porch glider inside! It worked great for extra seating around the table Christmas Eve!
My kitchen window. I spend a heck of a lot of time staring out that thing while doing dishes, so I try to make it happy and interesting. I found this Elf wreath last minute this year. I have the box it came in, too.

I went to Weston Missouri yesterday on my annual trip with my best friend. It wasn't even supposed to snow, but it did! It made the day so magical, with the little crystal like flakes falling around all those 1843 buildings! All decorated so lovely and Christmasy. Go to the Weston Missouri website if you've never seen the town. It is the coolest!http://www.westonmo.com/

So...I guess I'll show ya the one's that you can kinda see! The top is my pastel glittery bells. They have lights inside. New this year from a little thrift store in my college town.
My son bought me the "It's a Wonderful Life" houses a couple of years ago. I've added a few since. This is the Bailey's Building and Loan.
I love this pop bottle, so I made a laundry sprinkler out of it. The little bird match holder is metal..so cute! I decided to take a dollar store screen door sign, and add a lil wreath.
This little plastic white tree with red berries is so sixties! Again, I could see it on the shelves at Woolworth.
This is Martini's - the bar where George Bailey had his drinks before deciding to jump off the bridge, when Clarence (the angel) saves him!
Hope everyone is doing well. I plan to get back in the swing of things this week, one more final and I'm through...Friday was my Master's Grad, but this is another Associates I started during the same time. Then, I'm free to celebrate. Going to Weston Missouri...the coolest town. I'll take pix, and let's hope they turn out! Zootsuitmama

IT's ABOUT TIME! Sorry I've been away. I have been trying to get through the end of school, State being at my facility, and Thanksgiving. I did finally send the packages. I know, don't hate me. I ran out of time and money, don't know which came first though. I will try to be better on future give a ways. I still don't have a couple of addresses, though. I'll try to get to you on your blogs. Soooo...I am finally trying to get my Christmas up, and hope to have it done by tomorrow night...
Keep in touch! Zootsuitmama
