February Snow

Woke up to a bit of snow this morning.  February 14th was the latest date I remember it snowing in Texas, so I guess we have a new record now.

Grace's 17th Birthday

Grace was only 7 when I stared blogging back in 2006.

Today, she turned 17.  I really can't believe it!

Presents to open and pink carnations - her favorite flower.

Uncle Stephen made delicious pizza on the BBQ grill.  It's been warm these past couple of weeks!

A new pillow case - perfect for the birthday girl!

Christmas Front Porch

Good morning!  Today, I'm sharing pictures of my front porch.  The drawers are from an old sewing machine - I fill them with different things, depending on the holiday or season. 

An old sled and ice skates.  

My favorite Christmas wreath ever - $15.00 at Costco!

Emily and I are doing a little Christmas shopping today.  Only 5 days left!

Bedroom Christmas Decorations

I tried to keep my Christmas decorations simple this year, only using the things that I really love.  I love bottle brush trees and found this large vintage tree last year.  My bedroom is mostly neutrals and almost everything is vintage, so I put the tree on my dresser.  As you can see, I also love vintage mirrors.  The 2 smaller ones will eventually go in my bathroom.

I found these very tiny pink ornaments at the same estate sale.

A little sparkle.

Christmas Cookie Exchange

Last weekend, we had a Christmas Cookie Exchange Party to start off the Christmas season.

Emily made sugar cookies - each one decorated beautifully!

We also exchanged ornaments, which is my favorite part.

Everyone brought their favorite Christmas cookies to exchange.

Each guest went home with a selection of all the cookies and a tea favor.  Each bag had 3 different Stash Christmas tea bags.

Grace decorated the chalkboard. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
