Bring On The Christmas!

I can't hold back any longer!  
For those of you who believe in one holiday at a time, don't comment because I don't need that kind of negativity in my life!  Ha-ha!

These Santa mugs and the spaghetti Santa were in the dollar
ROOM at the Clarkston Antique mall called the Hangar.  (It's in an old airplane hangar)
That's my kind of dollar store!

I've been busy, busy making Christmas yo yos for elves and hope to have one finished to show you soon.
The last 6 months have been a very difficult time in my life and I look forward to the Christmas cheer.

Christmas time is my favorite time to blog and I look forward to seeing your Christmas posts!

I can't wait for Christmas either. I have been to "The Hangar" in Clarkston. My mom and dad lived in Lewiston for awhile. We always went to The Hangar when we were there to visit them. I don't get over there anymore. I remember the Dollar store there. I always found something to buy there! HA P.S. I was born in Clarkston.

I'm with you. NO humbugs allowed.
I will start early this year because I'm
having company for Thanksgiving and
not for Christmas. Love your blog and
all of your happy "stuff." As the British
say "Stay Calm and Carry On!"

Shirley Hatfield said...

Good for you! I always start decorating in November. I need to have it done for my Idaho grands to see at Thanksgiving. I like to have most of the shopping and decorating done by Dec. 1 so I can enjoy the spirit of the season.

I too have been picking up Christmas items to decorate the house. I am still planning my Thanksgiving table setting and won't put out Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving.

Jill said...

Nice!! Your mugs look to be in great shape - I found an all white one but apparently, everything else is worn off - still cute though!!

$1 for such Christmas pretties! I'm so happy for you. I have a mix of holidays up right now. A small scattering of Halloween still needs to find a crate in the lowest level and then Thanksgiving in the living room with a bit of Christmas starting to peeking out in the kitchen.

I hope the months ahead will be happier for you! Love the charming holiday treasures! I found the cutest candle holder today at Goodwill. I'll have to post a picture of it on my blog. Take care!

I love your Santa! I think if it makes you happy to be thinking Christmas thoughts that is what you should do. : )

Mary Clark said...

I'd have Christmas all year if I could, decorations, music, store insanity ... and definitely the love and good cheer and givingness it evokes. And especially your new dollar Santas - you rocked those!!!

Hugs ~ Mary

Patti said...

Love your sweet Santas! Christmas won't be at our house at all this year, so I'm a bit iffy on how much I'll decorate. It's always fun to bring out all the vintage treasures!

Rose Garden Romantic said...

I'm always happy to see Christmas! I get so annoyed with the people who complain every single year about Christmas being in the stores to early. Just ignore it people! haha!

Blessed Serendipity said...

I love decorating for Christmas as well. Cute cute cute finds and such a bargain too.

Simply Shelley said...

No matter the season, your cottage is always going to be the cutest! I pray the Christmas season will be most blessed with all things that bring you peace and joy my friend. Blessings sweet Holly....with a name like that, how could you not be excited for this time of the year....hehe

Suzie Button said...

I too am excited about Christmas this year and have started decorating! We were packing to move to a new home last year during the Christmas season so I skipped decorating altogether and didn't even have a tree last year, so I'm all in to enjoy this season!
