MeRrY ChRisTmaS!

It's hard to believe that Christmas is here...oh how time flies.  We were still in decorating mode on Christmas Eve since the kitchen was just finally getting put back together (95% done!).  There are a few things that will have to wait until after the holidays but at least the big time consuming parts are finished!  (I will be posting our project soon, really, I promise!)  This has been a new journey for me and I am loving the adventure.  I hope to do much more now that the major kitchen project is almost complete.

I am posting a few pics of our Christmas decor that we have around the house (while waiting for everyone to wake up-late night with family celebrations).  One in particular I am thrilled without further ado...

I LOVE how this turned out...hope you do too!

canning jar wire insert, canning jar with dominoes, rusty bells & candle, various found/bought items-
see more pics at (itsnotjunk2me)

vintage pepsi crate, 1950's light set, vintage postcards, rusty spring holding old photos, 
toy fire engine sprinkler, wooden shoe stretcher

livingroom mantel with glass,glitter and it!

pedestal candle holders ($ tree candlestick, vase & gorilla epoxy) with bells, beach glass & candles
here's my inspiration...

more glass, glitter and lights!
glass block was a gift from my m-i-l several Christmases ago 

I would like to wish all of my friends, family and blogging buds (rosebuds that is) a VERY Merry Christmas!!!!   Have a wonderful time of gathering together with loved ones, reminiscing, and remembering the TRUE meaning of CHRISTmas.
