VTT: THE LAST OF MY DEC'S, AND HELP FOR AMANDA

First, and most important, is the story of 27-year-old Amanda who lost her husband, 4-yr-old son and 8-month-old daughter in a house fire last week. Her 12-yr-old step-daughter survived with her. Go to Kristie's Notes to read more and donate if you can.


Yesterday, I promised that I'd show my sideboard decorations and here they are in all their vintage splendor! First, a view of the whole thing ~ (click on each photo to see a larger version)

Now the top shelf ~ (red bowl is Midwest of Cannon Falls, musical tree by Kurt Adler)

On the middle shelf ~

And, the bottom shelf ~

Now for a few close-ups ~
This isn't vintage, but pretty none-the-less!

I love the ladies dressed in red, especially the one with the candle.

Great pictures! I love the little houses. I used to have that great bowl on top until it broke. I've saved the pieces for doing a mosaic someday.

Merry Christmas!

Beautiful display,seems wrong to say Merry Christmas, so terribly sad though to hear about this awful fire.
