I think these little tykes in the above pic are searching the Wish Books for red items to ask for at Christmas!

This week I'll show you a few of my Christmas decorations, starting with my Nutcrackers Sweet!

Here are a few windowsills with some vintage tiny house ornaments lined up. This year I picked up some of the hanging snow/icicle borders (JoAnn Fabric) and hung it from the windows. (Cloudy day, not the best pics.)

Speaking of not-the-best-pic is my curio shelf. By the time I sat down to edit the photos from the camera, I didn't feel like getting up to retake this. So "what you see is what you get"! (Shirley, some of my German ornaments are here - maybe I better retake so you can see them better!)

This is my deck decorations this year. My sister gave me the vintage shovel, and I got the idea for the soda crate from either BH&G or Pinterest, I forget which. I used plastic ornaments and taped the hooks (paper clips!) up with glass tape.

I tell you - I'd be lost without 3M hooks and poster putty!

I love the idea of using the soda crate as a display piece. I am definitely going to do that next year.

Happy Holidays & Rednesday!

Yup, that's what those kiddos are doing alright! I would spend many hours pouring over the "wish book" and the regular catalog, too!

I like those icicles! Thanks for hosting! ♥
