Welcome Guests!

Our family will arrive next week and we are so excited to have
them home for Christmas. 
Their room is ready!

The shadow box contains a tatted cap worn by my Mom,
my baby dress a hand-crocheted bib and booties my daughter wore.

This quaint little table was made by hubby using drawers
out of an old treddle sewing machine. 
It is great for storing candles.
(The top of the table is a piece of oak
from my father-in-law's old barn.)
I feel like everything in my house has a story.
Hope the stories don't bore you.

Yard Sale Find

While driving by a yard sale, we decided to stop.  Since it was late in the
day we didn't think they would have any treasures left, but guess what!!!
They had this chair for $3.00.  Hubby striped it and recovered it.
It had the old straw stuffing in the seat.

A picture of our excited baby girl with Santa on her first Christmas.
The original pic is in color, but I printed it black and white - I like the look.
The old wooden sleigh ornament has been around a long, long time.

I had an extra bow, so I had to find a place to tie it on.
