A Little 2015 Cleanup

As I was putting most of the Christmas decorations away yesterday, I realized that I had some items I didn't share with you since I had was away for Christmas.  So here are a last few bits and pieces of 2015!

I found these adorable small plates at Goodwill for about .50 each.  They are collectible and so cute.
I love them and was so excited to find something vintage to add to my Christmas decor.

I also won a fabulous giveaway from my friend Pam at Virginia Retro!  It arrived just before I had to leave for Texas so I didn't get to share it until now!
Look at all this vintage cuteness! 
Which also included this little guy!
Thank you Pam!! 

I also participated in a pocket letter exchange.  My partner was Judy at 20 North Ora
I received this cute pocket letter after returning from Texas and she sent all these goodies also
Thank you Judy!  It was a fun exchange!

I think that does it for Christmas 2015!
Just the tree left and I may enjoy those Christmas lights for a few more nights! 

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

I enjoyed seeing all of your decorations. I'm leaving everything out until the middle of next week. I hate to say so long to my snow men. Wishes for a happy and healthy 2016.

Glad you are still enjoying your Christmas goodies. The vintage plates are so sweet! I forgot about the giveaway package until I saw the photo, lol. The little guy is a candle hugger. I really enjoy making the pocket letters too, love what you received. :)

So many Christmas pretties. The giveaway from Pam is just beautiful with all the Santa Stuff. Lucky you. We are having cold weather and I am not too anxious to take Christmas decoration down just yet. My Snowmen and bottle brush trees may be left up for a little longer.
Blessings,
Audrey Z.

Lovely treasures, Linda! We're keeping our tree up for a few more days. I find I'm reluctant to lose those pretty lights.

Love your plates. What a great find. I am cleaning today. I didn't have much in the way of Christmas decorations out this year so a pretty easy cleanup of those. xo Laura
