I love Christmas, getting together with family and friends, the baking and yes, even the hustle and bustle of shopping.  But this year it seemed that time just flew and I didn't have enough time to do the things that I love.  So this year we did not even put up our normal tree (for the first time since I can remember).  So my decorating is at best minimal.  I did put up a small aluminum tree, that I placed in an old wood and wire measure.

These skates on a white shutter are on my front door.

These are old cream bottles with fresh greens and antique glass Christmas balls on an ironstone plate.

This sweet angel sits in my foyer.

This is one of a pair of antique wood stocking dryers.  One is on my side door and this one hangs in my living room.  I decorated it with fresh greens, twigs and twine. 

This is an antique wood shovel, that is decorated with fresh greens and sits on my front porch.

This centerpiece sits on my farm table in the kitchen.  I love old silver plate, wire and a touch of glitter.

Most of these pieces I bought at the shop this year.  I'm really getting into this french farmhouse look.   That is what I am going to concentrate on this coming year.  We have some big plans for this coming year at the shop, starting in the spring.  It's very exciting, and we hope that all our loyal customers will enjoy what we are planning.   

I hope that everyone has a Wonderful Christmas and a Healthy and Inspiring New Year.
