vintage xmas monday {and a swap}

first of all - thank you to joan at anything goes here - this has been a wonderful blog party, joan! i have loved participating and i still hope to make it around to other blogs - i'm so glad you are leaving the link list up for a little while yet. thanks again:)

these reproduction photo frames are a favorite of mine - i haven't seen many like them. i wanted to share them with you even thought i have not yet put the photos in for this year. darling images and i like the unusal color of the painted wood:)






and then i must share with you one of the simply wonderful items i received in my sparkling winter white swap package from shara. i am beyond thrilled with this cozy, darling, sparkly little house she made for me! look at all the special little details...and i really love the sheet music covered base. this house is so me...i don't know how she got it so right:)





and not only that - this darling little house was only a part of the many treasures i received - here are a couple more: delicate snowflakes, old crystals, and the most vintage looking paperweight that shara made, as well.


and a little pair of ivory angels...hmmm...more angels?!?

happy holidays to everyone!
