Six years, 1100 posts, and Christmas, again

I love my little blog.  I've been writing it for 6 years and just 4 more posts -- certainly by the end of this year -- until I hit 1100!  I have to dream up something exciting to celebrate, but it will be after-the-fact, in the new year. There's too much to do right now, right?
There's the Christmas countdown,,,
and bowls of vintage glass ornaments to get lost in...

and actual work, like gifts to wrap on a frosty morning!


I went a little nuts with my decorating this year...

 My favorite part is this truck full of Santa kitsch!



But I also did the vintage glass ornament sideboard...


 And got out my genuine Georgia Peachez wreath!

My tree, though droopy, is still splendid, especially at night!
More photos to come.  It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Hi laurie

congratulations on all your blogging over the years. I think I just found you a couple years ago.

My favorite is the trunk filled with your vintage Christmas items.

I will keep blogging till I get a boyfriend LOL and at my age that not's going to happen ! I have been by myself 8 years now. I started my blog for self entertainment and it's worked.

Merry Christmas

Beautiful wreath! You have some wonderful Christmas ornaments. I try to buy glass balls every year at the New Year's sales so that I can have a beautiful collection one day. They are just so pretty and special!
