Christmas Consignment Shopping

Today I went to a favorite shop for a little Christmas (for me) shopping.  I just needed to go browse, and take my time.  I've had terrible bronchitis for almost 2 weeks and have felt terrible. Feeling a little better, I wanted to get out for a while.  I found some of the sweetest Christmas decor pieces.

 I found this darling red basket for $4.99.

 Some crafty person had made this vintage post card into a lovely tree ornament, but this was the only one they had left.

 Who could resist this sweet wooden snowman?

 And this precious snow family.  This is all one piece, and so sweet!
Then I found this sweet wood hanging snowman.  He's now beside the front door, on the porch.

I couldn't leave this sweet Lenox candle holder.  

Here are a couple things I've made that I haven't shown you.

I made this arrangement for the front porch,

and tried my hand at a book page Christmas tree.

I used items on hand to create and decorate the tree, so it's a freebie.

Just wanted to share a few things with you.  Do you have your shopping done?  I do, and the gifts are wrapped and under the tree!  Whew!!  My family will come to my house on Christmas Eve for an early dinner.  
My menu:
Baked ham, potato salad, deviled eggs, green beans, sweet potato souffle, creamed corn, rolls, corn bread muffins, vanilla wafer cake, strawberry cake, pecan pie, tea, coffee, hot cider.  I will do all I can the day before, such as the baking, and the potato salad.  

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and a Happy New Year!!
