Crazy Christmas!

It is only December 8th and it has been a crazy month so far!
More decorating has happened
My 4 ft tree is up and decorated
I really loaded it down this year with favorite ornaments.
The tree topper is a vintage elf kneehugger this year!
I am so filled with JOY 
This Santa was found in a large bag of Christmas decorations left beside the recycle bins.  I took this guy and a couple of other things and donated the rest to my favorite thrift shop.
This book case got two shelves of winter items
More Christmas and vintage in the other bookshelf
Items I've found thrifting and also gifts from friends 
make my Christmas decorations extra special
Mostly vintage in the cubbies
Angels, Elves and Mr/Mrs Santa
The birds have found a warm home on a thrifted plaid scarf.  
A little red bird has joined them after...
a little accident...Whoops!
I've been working on getting everything decorated and gifts in the mail this week.  
Still hoping to get out a few Christmas cards also.  

So remember this post not long ago
When I announced I was going to be a Grandma again?  Well we found out....
It's a GIRL!
So happy and excited!

Joining these parties

Wishing You JOY,

Linda

It's a GIRL! Yea! I have been on the lookout for a pink Bluebird of Happiness for you in case it is a girl. They are hard to find thrifting, but if I find one - its yours!
