Christmas Time!

Where to start??? I have pictures galore to share with you! Firstly, let me introduce a sweet little snowman to all of you!!!!
Ain't he cute!! "Hey, Mr. Snowman, what's that in your pocket???"

OMG! Is, it??? Nah? It looks like a little baby snowman!
LOL!!! It is! Is this not ridiculously cute??? This little snowman idea has been rolling around in my brain...torturing me at times when I had other things to do. This just makes me smile. When I finished him up, and put the whole thing together I went and showed it to Brad, and the reaction I got was a big smile and a chuckle. Mission accomplished!!!

Now, I would love to share with you some pictures I took on my visit to Korner's Folley. Korner's Folley is a historic home in Kernersville, NC...just a jew minutes from my house. They decorate it to the hilt during Christmas. So my BFF and I headed over to tour it. (We always do something "Christmas-y" every year, this year it was to visit Korner's Folley.)

This is the Rose Room. I loved it. It was like going back in time. There are 16 fireplaces in this house! They were all decked out in their finest glitz!
Just look at those ceilings! They were all like this. Twenty-t!wo rooms!
Here is one of the fireplaces in the reception room.
And another....
I believe this was a sewing room.
I absolutely loved the windows in this house. They were all different...and trimmed beautifully!

This is the kitchen window. Now check out the shelves behind it! I would love to have something like this in my house. Those shelves would be filled with all kinds of houseplants and herbs!!!
I love this photograph. These are toys that were in the children's room.
Here is a vanity in the dressing room...I love the composition of this photo. All that blue white and the old china and fan.
Here is one last photo of a corner cabinet in the kitchen. I could show you guys many more...but I would also like to share some of my own trimmings with you. If you would like to see more, you can visit my flickr page and see all of them. They are full of all kinds of Christmas inspiration!

Welcome to our home!

The birdies are at the door with a special Christmas Greeting.

The tree is trimmed!

Every ledge is dressed with greenery and glitz.

An ornament from when I was a little girl...handed down to me by my mom.

I have much more I can share, but I will save some for another post. I am off to finish up some house work, do a little more Christmas magic to the mailbox, then kick back with some yarn and maybe a good movie!
