Merry Christmas to all my dear friends out there in blog land. This will be my last post until after the first of the year. It’s time to enjoy the family while school is out. I want to share a poem that I thought was cute and reminded me of when I was small, thinking that if I was out of my bed and not a sleep Santa would not come. Also I would like to show you the rest of my home that is ready for Christmas!
A squeak on the stairs.
Could Santa be here?
Better pull my blankets,
Up to my ears.
He comes down the chimney,
That’s how he gets in.
Santa uses magic,
To make himself thin.
I better keep still,
Can’t make a peep.
He doesn’t leave toys,
Unless you’re asleep.
My door just opened
Someone’s by my bed.
It wasn’t Santa after all,
Cause Mom just kissed my head.
Family Friend Poems
I love making Christmas stockings. The stockings hanging from the fireplace I made to match the pillows on the sofa. The single stocking I made from vintage table cloths.
I add little touches of Christmas all through the house, yup even the bathroom.
Here are some fun vignettes in the kitchen.
Ice skates hang ready at the back door.
The back door.
My vintage bread box is so fun to fill with Christmas decor.
This Santa sits on my work bench sewing away. LOL He is my favorite Santa.
Great rusty buckles, rings and old red thread make for a lovely vignette on my work bench, which is closed down for the season.
The presents are wrapped and under the tree. Now I will spend most of my time in the kitchen baking.
Here are some fun areas from the sitting room.
I got this lovely wooden star this year from a Etsy shop.
I hang star garlands around the house.
A wooden bowl full of antique ornaments.
If you want more inspiration get Jennifer Rizzo’s book Creatively Christmas it is amazing you will not want to put it down.
No matter how many pretties that we put into our home and know matter how many good smells come from the kitchen the reason for Christmas is because of the Jesus Christ and his great sacrifice that he went through for us. Because of this we celebrate Christmas.
Have a beautiful Christmas with love in your hearts. Merry Christmas!
With love, Jo
Thanx to all my dear friends!
