Greetings from my home to yours

Merry Christmas eve to all of you here in the US and Merry Christmas to those of you who already at Christmas day in other parts of the world!!

Today I would just like to say THANK YOU!!  
To all of my friends,creatives and kindred souls who I chat with regularly on the net, who visit my blog,and encourage and support me! and those who share in art communities with me-all whom I am eternally grateful to have met! 
Thank you all for being a part of my world and allowing me to be part of yours!
I wish you all the Merriest of Christmas tidings & blessing in the New Year for the best of health and all good things!


and now I leave you with a picture tour of my home this season...

 The real elves..aka elf on  a shelf before they became a fashion statement! teehee


 



 Vintage Silver Pom Pom tree...





 My sister Julie and I at the Dey's (Dey Brother's) store downtown Syracuse circa 1960 something ")

and now to my little Christmas village of Pinecone Elves and deer...
 Mom & Dad had a driftwood decoration covered with some moss and about 6 of these elves and 4 deer that they put up on the buffet in the dining room every Christmas time. Every day the positioning was different as one of us girls (there are five of us) would go change their places as we thought our design was the best! heehee
Well, as you can see, I love those elves and could not have just 6!






My son Len made this angel in kindergarten and my son Lindsey made the Mary & Joseph plaque-even though their decorations may be a bit time worn- they come out every year in special places of honor!!  Wonder where they got their creativeness from?! heehee



I would like to say this is how beautiful our snow is outside...but this is actually last week...now it is pouring rain and a big mud mess- so I will leave you with these pictures of a winter wonderland!

My love to you all~

Merry Xmas dear Jackie, loved your decorated home, feels so warm and so unique. I miss the snow as well, and all we have is a pouring rain so grey, grey and grey... but not in our heart! Hope you have a joyous time together with your family!

Lovely post, Jackie - wishing you the very best of the holiday season with friends, family, food & festivities! Big hugs!

Awww, that's so sweet Jackie! I love how you bring out your sons' decorations made in kindergarten all those years ago. That's just so cute! I was going to say lucky you have snow, until I read the end of your post. Pants! Santa will just have to tread through the mud then! Make sure he wipes his feet before dropping the presents! Wishing you a lovely Christmas period as well and look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations in 2015!

Sorry, I'm so late in stopping by, Jackie. I was ill before Christmas and then things just went crazy! I loved looking at this post today! How cute those Christmas elves are. I love all your nostalgic decorations and that pic of your and your sis with Santa is delightful. I do hope you've been having a great time. I am so looking forward to seeing all you create in 2015! xxx
