Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas

Well, I think we are decorated. My wonderful hubby
got the tree and decorated it. The little cushion covered
in deer and birds is my kitty Munchkins' bed.

These old toys (not the tree) are from my childhood. I am 61 so they
are older than dirt!

One corner of the great room.

The church and tall trees are from my childhood. The
only ones that survived. And the red wagon is the third
of the wagon toys.

Just a little decor.

Wishing you a safe and Merry Christmas and a New Year
that is full of all good things. Thank you for viewing my
little blog. I'll be back after Christmas,

Winter and Decorating

We are now thawing out from some very low temps. Like
9 degrees. This is our water feature in the backyard...still
flowing but very frozen. This was several days ago.

I finally started decorating and here is part of one of my
collections. Elegant reindeer. I just love the grace of
how deer move and their lovely eyes.

Most of the ones I have are vintage. Many sizes and

The little guy on the left is "cute" but will grow up to be

This one is newer and rocks back and forth on a stand.

And this has nothing to do with the
collection. Just thought you might like
the vintage look...isn't it great?

Must get back to work, Annette

Collection Confession

This is my latest addition to a collection that
started many years ago. This one is special
because finding a square one is unusual.

The vibrant colors are what first caught my eye. And at
first I would use them for storage as some are large.

Well, as the collection grew, they began to become part

of the decor of the home. Our new home has high ceilings
in the kitchen which is a perfect place to stack up a

collection of baskets. But as with most things that a
person collects, they aren't all large----some are medium,

and some are small. So now they are all over
the place. And this confession of a collection
does not include the other types of baskets
I have collected.
So now I have to confess that I collect many
things. One of these days I will sit down and
make a list of all my collections. And, if it is
true that having three of one thing makes a collection,
then my list will be llloooooonnnnggggg.
Are there people who only collect one or
two things? There must be, because I know my
husband doesn't collect
This is a man who goes to Costco with a list and
comes home with what is on the list and nothing
more. So, I guess we balance each other out.
What do you collect? Do you have a favorite
collection? An unusual collection? Will you
More soon,

I WON, I WON, I WON!!!!!

Today this precious little package was waiting for me

when I got home.

Every month Melanie at All My Favorite Things has a

drawing from her list of followers and sends a treat.

I won for Oct. and my treat was a bunch of little things.

Opening the box was so much fun! There were two

vintage cards on the box and a cute little blue bird. Inside

were a sweet kitty, a doily, glitter, a bell cookie cutter,

an old bottle, tiny buttons, a pill box, a crystal, a hankie

blue flowers, jar labels from C&H Sugar, and another

little box.

Inside the little box were this darling little girl holding

flowers and some white flowers.

Look at all these wonderful treats. This has given me

a huge smile on my face. Thank you, Melanie, for brightening

my day.

For everyone else...become a follower of Melanie's and

next month you could be the winner! Just go to
ps. Our Vintage Gathering Christmas Emporium was a great
success and we thank every one who came to see us.
