Merry Christmas From My Home To Yours

I love the Christmas season! It is in all reality the most wonderful time of the year! December has been a flurry of tree decorating, Christmas shopping, attending our daughters college graduation, moving her home, and attending an out of town wedding. I am finally finished decking the halls, so let's take a little tour of our family room and kitchen, shall we? Before we start with the tour, I want to wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

                                              Our family tree!

                                   A new driftwood tree topper.

                                         An oldie but goodie!


                                    Simple look for my vintage gate.

                         Old burlap bags are perfect for a tree skirt.

                                Handmade ornaments are the best!!

                                        I do love angels!!!

                                        My kitchen hutch.

                            Vintage family ornaments are full of
                                       wonderful memories.

                                  Had fun using my new scales this year.

                                    Always a favorite at our house.

                                     New Auburn ornaments are
                                    added every year. Looks like
                                      we just might need to get a
                                           bigger tree next year.

                                    More family ornaments from
                                            Mr.CC's childhood.

Christmas Decor

Hello everybody, hope all is well with you. My day started off a tad bit scary. Waking up to find out that a tornado had touched down in my city this morning, well, that's not how I like to start off my day. Then, finding out that it was only a few blocks from my daughters house, made it even worse. Thank goodness, nobody was harmed , only damage to buildings and cars. The sun is shining now, so I hope it's all gone. Today, I am sharing some pics from my dining room with you. Looking forward to our Christmas eve dinner that we will have here on Monday. Think I might just get all my dinnerware out today, so I have it all ready early (that will be a first for me). I'm going to let the pics do all the talking today. Thanks for coming by, and be sure to check out all the parties that I am attending. Linky parties, are wonderful places to get inspired, so if you have never checked them out, give them a try today.

Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.144

Here we are, just one week away from Christmas, are you ready? I'm sure not, so I better get it going this last week. I will say, I really didn't want to have a party this week. With what has happened at the Sandy Hook school on Friday, a linky party, was far from what I want to do today. I am sure you are all just as heart broken as I am over this tragedy. As a mother of two young teachers, this has really hit home. Both of my daughters are just starting their teaching careers, and they both work with young children (K5-3rd grade). The young 27 year old teacher, that made sure that her students were hidden from the shooter, and died while saving them, oh my, these children are so blessed that she was there for them. Let's all continue praying for all the families that have lost loved ones. The lost of these twenty children, is by far, more than any of us can understand. I do know, that our God is with the families of these little ones, and will always be there for them. Also, we need to pray for all the people that were there at the school, they are all, forever changed. Thank you for coming by today, and now, let's see some wonderful features, from last weeks party.

DIY Lampshade and Christmas Vignette

It always seems like when I start decking the halls for Christmas, I do more than just Christmas decorating, I sure hope, I have some company here. When I started clearing off the Fall decor from this sideboard, the lampshade that I had in there, just wasn't doing it, if you know what I mean. So, what's a gal, suppose to do? Well now, any DIY gal, might just pull out some burlap and glue, and a new lampshade is born in 15 minutes.  With that being said, this vignette in my foyer, was ready to welcome guests to our home.

                                  Come on in y''s
                                    Christmas here at
                                     Coastal Charm!!

                              This vintage sideboard will be
                                getting a makeover after the

                                Still lovin' my Ballards wreath.

                                   A close-up look.

                             Here I have my DIY burlap

                          I'm really digging this new look in there.
