The lovely and talented (oh and funny too!) Boo Mama is hosting the Christmas Tour of homes once again this holiday season and I am excited to be part of the fun for the second year in a row!
Is that you knocking on the door? Well come on in. It might be cold out there (this is Texas so you just never really know, it could also be 70 degrees!)
Pay no attention to the collection of ornaments down under the tree there… That would be the handy work of a certain 19-month old (yes, TODAY Little G is 19 months old!) that lives here. Sure, you can help me put them back but then there will just be new ones there in a few minutes, so it’s okay!
Moving along… Here is one of my favorite ornaments that I have had for several years now. I believe my mother gave it to me (isn’t it sad that I can’t remember for sure, but I am pretty sure? Yeesh!)
And here is my favorite ornament that is new to my collection this year.
I found this one while my husband Tim and I were on a little “Mommy & Daddy only trip” to small town Texas, USA last weekend. Isn’t it pretty?
While we’re in the kitchen I will show you another couple of trinkets that I acquired on our little trip (Fredricksburg, TX is known for it’s great “gifty” shopping!) that are sitting on my window sill.
I found the darling “Believe” sign in the same shop as the bird ornament (where all things Christmas were 50% off!) and I came across the cute wooden Santa on the right at a thrift store for a whopping $2! The other Santa on the left is an old favorite and the pine cone was made by Little G at pre-school. I don’t think you can tell very well but it has “snow” and glitter on it!
The one second from the left is very special since I bought him while on our honeymoon in Deer Valley, Utah.
I just adore all the pretty fabrics that went into it and of course you know it is handmade which makes it even more wonderful in my eyes!
