well, school is OUT and we are in full on vacation mode! how nice is it to NOT have to wake up at 6:00 am? super duper nice. super. the boys got home from school last friday and were literally jumping up and down. hoooOray for Christmas break!
as for me...i shipped my last "work" package today! all the family (out of towners) gifts were shipped off friday. what a ReLieF! i feel a huge weight off my shoulders. big! so, now that i have some time, i've been finishing up my Christmas decorating. i sure do love getting all my decorations out. bins and bins of treats:) and i'm happy to share some pictures with ya'll! (click on photos to see them BIG)
i changed up the mantle to house only Christmas treats. i hung an ancient, chippy frame with a little folk art angel in the middle. filled some of my glass cloches with vintage glass mercury balls. can you ever have enough glass cloches or vintage ornaments? i can't!
here are a few close up peeks of our tree...a mix of my childhood ornaments, collected vintage ornaments, handmade treats from the boys and new ornaments collected each season!
and on top of the mantle is a smaller tree, filled with only vintage ornaments. fabulous glass balls and darling little chenille and wood people. a vintage polka dot angel adorns the top.
hope you enjoyed! we are getting awfully excited for Christmas around here...and definitely loving our time off together! noodle and lou christmas part II coming soon! peeks of my other trees and more...
