Christmas magic in Colorado Springs

My friend Kathy and two of her friends, aka The Gals With The Good Stuff, decorated an over-100 year old house on Colorado Springs' old north end with some of their BEAUTIFUL Christmas wares!

I took some photos to show you the loveliness:
That's my husband Dennis in the background...look how cute that toolbox on the table looks!
The Gals had a table full of yummy treats going in just about every room...this was the dining room
 The pantry full of jolly Santas!

 In the kitchen; did I mention everything was for sale?



This dress form greeted you at the top of the stairs
 Vintage lace dresses...
 for the little ones, too!
 A cozy crib

 Do you love the house?  It's for sale!
You know I wouldn't have been able to leave without a few treasures:
First and best: this gorgeous Vera tablecloth that was a gift to me from Kathy!
 Swooning!
 This is a vintage handkerchief.
 I love, love, love the graphics!
Another vintage hankie: this one was filled with lavender and tied up in a bundle by Joyce.  It smells heavenly!
 Have you ever seen these baubles?  I don't think I had...so I had to buy them in a bundle with some other mercury glass and such.
It was a magical day full of Christmas cheer: after Dennis and I left this beautiful home, we went out to dinner and guess who was there?
Yup.
Not only that but just a few moments later look who else walked in:
That's right.  Two Santas.  One Room.

How did you control yourself and not buy everything in sight? What a fun tour! Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

Ha-ha! Wow! A sale at the beautiful house - that sounds absolutely fantastic. I have a feeling I would have left with a whole lot more. You got great stuff. Best wishes and happy holidays, Tammy
