lovelies lately

well, hi! 

isn't this season wonderful?  everything tastes wonderful, smells divine, is adorable or beautiful to look at.... 

we've been busy and laid back all at once.   just when we're tempted to feel so overwhelmed,  there's an evening at home with a fire roaring and Christmas lights twinkling and Rudolph on tv.  ahh. 

some lovelies around my house... 

 the prize i won at a Christmas party.  LOVE those little signs.  gonna put it in the bathroom to remind myself that bathtime isn't torture.  i will miss it.  someday.

 one of the many vintage santas around here.  

 this is simmering on the fireplace or the stove lately.  smells soooo good.  cloves, oranges, cinnamon sticks and cranberries.  thank you, calli at make it do for the recipe. 

 so many shiny ornaments i resorted to just clustering them and hanging them around.  beautiful! 

 more santas.  i like Austrian Santa best.  

 oh dear.  trouble in a bag.  peppermint puppy chow, from sally's baking addiction.  yummmmy. 

 a pile of delicious smelling goat's milk soaps for gifts.  or maybe to keep.  hmm. 

wreath inspired by thompson family blog.  nativity minus a wise man, plus a little tikes sheep.  bookshelf painted with homemade chalk paint.  this cheerful corner makes me happy! 

we're busy but it's good.  hope you are enjoying these HAPPY holidays.
