my mom's friend, kerry parker, obviously a chocoholic herself, makes these delicious confections in her garage. let me know if you want her number-they are perfect for gifts, parties, and if you notice the box...they are also great for eating yourself...
vintage christmas ornaments. if you live in dallas, march yourself to curiousities in lakewood shopping center. there you will find this and that.
a menagerie of tree toppers also grace the aisles of consignment treasures at curiousities. vintage, glittery and requires a red light bulb. i think it's hilarious and genius at the same time.
you will probably only appreciate this one if you know a hunter or you yourself are a hunter. deer antlers. perfect to mix in with garland above the mantle, stick in the tree if you actually spend the money to buy a sturdy one, or i just lay them around on tables during the holidays. become good friends with your local taxidermy.
this is a "lenox" nativity scene. not sure what lenox means exactly but it sure is perrrrdy. tommy's grandmother kindly passed this down to us. i put it in a mccarty pottery bowl on our farm table...up high so miss mollie can't eat baby Jesus.
i guess i'm into vintage christmas this year because most of the above is an old find. i like a relatively different theme at christmas every year. for example, last year we didn't get a tree (because we went to MS for 2 weeks), so the theme was "sparse."
