Welcome to our first December Rednesday! I have most of the Christmas decorations up; no tree yet. I'll show you some of them.

I decided that the girls (and a few guys) can hang out with me on the shelf above the computer this year.

The vintage Christmas cards are festively adorning the door of my craft cupboard.

Here is a simple banner I made for the kitchen for the holidays, along with a few dec's on the top of the vintage cupboard. Some panels are re-used Christmas cards and others are scrapbook paper.

The past week or two I've been in such a crafting mode - wish I could ignore everything else and do it 24/7! I feel like a mad scientist crafter!

Hi Sue!
Oh...My goodness! I can't believe I'm the first one to post this week on Rednesdays. Yippee Skippy!

I just love your new post with the cherries garland and darling pendant swag. I am so inspired to add more red to my Christmas decorations this year. Maybe, it will be a swag??
I hope you have a wonderful day, my friend and thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a kind comment.

Happy Holidays, Sue!

I adore all of the girls and boys on the shelf above your computer. I have a very similar display on my buffet table. I love love love the clear pitcher on top of the white cabinet with the horse and carriage. I collect vintage pitchers and have never seen anything like that!

Thanks for sharing,



SO Happy looking the girls and boys are! Great garland idea! Looking like Christmas at your home!

I think your banner is simple enough that even "I" could make one!
