Merry Christmas Y'all

Oh my...only a few more days left before the BIG day...are you ready? I'm baking...making some special gifts for family members and so I guess I'm about ready. I do need to do a tad bit of house cleaning before we have company over on Friday night  and if we are going to have any clean clothes, I better make a trip to the laundry room, maybe I'm not ready after all. I just remembered that I have only shared my mantel with y'all from my family room and I still have sooooo much more...are you up for a ton of pics? If so...grab some hot cocoa and take a look. If you have not enter my current giveaway...then click's a biggie and you don't want to miss it. I would like to wish each and everyone of you...A MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
                             The look I went with this year in this
                               room was neutral/rustic and I was
                                very happy with the end results.
                            Using a lot of
                             silver and creamy tones was what
                                          I went with.

                                  A tad bit of glitter!
                              Mercury glass...cotton...starfish...
                                            oh my!
                          My mason jar had a temporary item...keep
                                looking and you will see what the
                                          final item was.
                            Lovin' how my vintage gate looks here,
                              just might keep it here all year long!
                              A couple more new vintage items.
               This is something that you use to harvest honey...found it at
                                 barn sale in Franklin, TN....$2!!!!
                           I'm using my other one to hold earrings.

In two minutes, I had a burlap coffee
sack tree skirt!!!
                           My craft project this week...think I might
                             need to add some packages around it.
                                  A touch of bronze.
                   Here it is...the final item! It's Mr. CC and I dancing
                        at our daughters wedding...oh how I LOVE
                                           this guy!!!!
                           These old mason jars
                                make charming
                                 picture frames!
                          In my last post...I was telling you how my
                          packages always match my trees...I wasn't
                                            kidding ladies!!

                              I wonder who is getting this darling
                               little girl ornament...any guesses?
             Using a family vintage silver ornament from my MIL!
                 Another darling little the tag gives
                                       this one away!!!

                   Bright and FUN!!!

          It so needed some packages! this cutie has MY
 name on it...she said I saw
it in a gift shop and
hinted just a tad.
                             Linking up to some fun parties...
