Happy New Year!!
Oh my! I am still trying to recover my home from the toy tornado that hit on Christmas morning! Packaging and toys spread all over the house! Here are a couple more of my Christmas presents. My sweet boys gave me a homemade gift certificate to buy what I wanted and I found these beautiful mercury glass candlesticks, which is something I have been wanting for years now. I just love them! Also, my sweet husband and I did not exchange gifts on Christmas because we just were not sure what we wanted. (We are the kind who would love if it were possible to surprise the other and buy something we know the other would love, but are completely incapable of doing so, so we have always pretty much picked out our own presents!) So when I fell in love with this adorable cottage style table in the perfect shade of jadite green at T.J. Maxx, sweet husband bought it for my Christmas present!!Just what my living room needed to look more cozy and homey and I can always use more tabletop space to display all my treasures! Thank you so much, sweetheart!! Here is a close up of some of the gorgeous vintage goodies my sweet mama sent me and next a few of my favorite vintage buttons.My latest Goodwill find is the sweet little lamp for only 3.99! It just need a nice simple shade.And here is something I forgot to share. This summer, when I was visiting California, my dear mother in law gave me this beautiful rose plate that once belonged to her beloved mother, Jewel. Isn't Jewel such a sweet, old fashioned name? I love those kinds of names and I have been thinking a lot about names lately because sweet husband and I will be needing to pick one out by the end of April. We are expecting a new little bundle of joy this Spring! We are so exited and so are our two little guys. Our 7 year old even wished on a star that he could have a baby sister or brother not long before we told him the news! Isn't that so sweet?
