The top photo we went All our Christmas, the bottom one we actually just were doing for everyday, but added a few items for Christmas1468569_671897446194781_1938610096_n1497646_671897436194782_1062645518_n


You are “tree mendous”

another cute gift idea..give an artificial tree in a small pot..this one is just painted with a ribbon glued around the top.. decorate the tree and let the person getting it know your think they are “tree mendous”.  I love my little tree..it has been just about everywhere in the house..each Christmas it seems to find a new spot.1468532_674270575957468_915902405_n

our Elf..and her reminder of the True Meaning of Christmas…


Our Elf, Chip arrived on Friday. She was found in my sons room on top of a little Christmas Tree. She brought along a special gift. A Nativity set. and a letter saying Santa wants you to remember the True Meaning of Christmas. To keep the nativity set  by your Christmas Tree so you remember Christmas is not just about Santa and Presents but about Jesus. I posted this on my personal facebook page and got such a great response..I wanted to share. Hope you are are enjoying the Holiday Season!!

(I found this nativity set at Menards at the end of last season)

Mason Jars

We love mason jars…we use them for some many different things…

1-mason jars-dec

-Getting organized.  Mason jars are great for storing pens, pencils, office and craft supplies.  We especially love the jars wrapped in burlap with a chalk board label.

-Decorating – Mason jars are great grouped together on a dresser, or separated and placed on shelves or in areas you need a vase…they look great with flowers in them (we especially love the burlap flowers!!).

-Gifts – Fill a jar with hersheys hugs & kisses and write “hugs & kisses” on the label.  Great little gift to tell someone you love them!  These also make great hostess gifts, or can be used as a creative way to give cash this holiday season.  The one jar pictured above (top row 2nd picture) has a tag on it that reads “toys are a treat & games can be funny, but I thought you’d REALLY like some holiday money” (I rolled up twenty $1 bills  and tied them together with red and green rainbow loom rubber bands (since they were in my house!) and they fit in perfectly!).

We do have mason jars available for sale….


We have benches…

Remeber “Faith” the first bench we sold? We Loved it. So many people wanted it. But it sold Fast. We have searched for more like it with no luck, Until now. Trish has an awesome carpenter and he built us 5 of them !! WOOHOO…can you say Solid WOOD , soon to be super cute painted benches !! We can not wait to paint them. they will be $175 when finished.
