Santa Claus is Coming to Town!


Santa Claus is Coming to Town!


In fact, he is already making his debut at our house! This sweet pink confection was designed by my dear friend, Rhea of Sweet N Shabby Roses. Isn't he just the most adorable thing?
My mother-in-law made this cross-stitch Santa for me as a birthday surprise years ago & I treasure it. It comes out every November & stays on display thru February. Still haven't decided how to use these little angel loves, but I'm sure I'll come up with something! Probably will hit me after I go to bed tonight. Is anyone else like that ~ you know, you lay there waiting to go to sleep & start getting all these wonderful ideas? Then you can't go to sleep because you're so excited? I've been doing that a lot lately!!
Look what my sweet lil PRH sis, Amy of Bunny Rose Cottage sent me ~ a small mirror ornament! How appropriate for me since I sell antique mirrors from my store AngelicAccents here on eBay! Amy, this looks almost EXACTLY like the one I let get away & then wished I had kept!! Maybe DH will take the hint & buy me a heart-shaped one for Valentine's Day......wouldn't that be awesome?!?!
This is one of my favorite paintings. It is by Thomas Kincaide. I leave it out year-round. I could really see us living in a beautiful old Victorian like this some day with that awesome wrap around porch! Pic is a little blurry, so I'll try again to get a better one.

This is just the sweetest lil pup I've seen since, well, since my little shih tzu Rosie was a baby! Got this in an email the other day. This Chihuahua cutie was born in Japan back in May with this "heart" on its body!!

Hey, Vickie, wouldn't this make a fun playmate for Miss Margarita?
Sweet dreams to all!
Hugs,
Stephanie

Your so sweet Steph :) As soon as I saw that heart mirror ornament, I knew I HAD to get it for you! I was so excited :)

I love Rhea's santa! And the apothecary jar with pink ornaments is so pretty!!! Love the Kincaid print too. I want a porch like that so bad! We have one along the whole front of our house but I want a wraparound too :)

Hi Steph, I keep a pretty little notebook next to the bed for all those fabulous ideas you get before you go to sleep. Mind you some of those ideas dont look so good in the light of day ha!!
