  1. My favorites were the wreath with the wooden houses and trees on it, and the hot fudge sauce. I immediately thought of icecream, lol. The lavender candle looks lovely too.

  2. The red and white bedroom speaks to me, although I’m not a fan of the old fashioned style bed. I slept in a similar bed as a child (more than 60 years ago) and always felt like I was in “jail” with the metal bars in the headboard. Funny what we remember, isn’t it, geez! I got my artificial tree up and fluffed, and have been staring at a large box of lights that need to be wrapped on my unlit tree. I know once I get going doing it I’ll be okay, but it’s the getting going – oh my! The rest of decorating the house (the easy stuff) is progressing. I got the Christmas Spirit and have been hauling box after box of Christmas decorations from the basement and pulling out tried and true favorites and beautiful items I forgot I had. There are way too many boxes of Christmas decor holding items from decades, and despite telling myself I wasn’t going to buy a single new thing this year – well, Hobby Lobby got me, darn!

  3. What I wouldn’t do for one of those old stoves – which IMO, seems much more functional than the ones now. A girl can dream.

  4. Love the simple farmhouse kitchen (Farmhouse on Boone). Realistic, not overdone, charming.

  5. Beautiful photos of all the vintage things I love! I’m glad you had a great time with family. And have leftovers. I love them too!

  6. Ohhh, that blog…gonna add it to my list too!! Thanks!!
    My daughter wants us to do those cardboard gingerbread houses when they come to visit just after Xmas…thanks for the idea.
    The fudge sauce looks wonderful…oh for the good ole days when I could eat it!!

    1. I was thinking along the same lines, but using iron on tape to put the stockings together.

  7. I am glad you had family visit yesterday. I am loving the flocked trees and wreaths. I had some gingerbread decorations that I got rid of years ago and now I am building up my collection again. I too enjoy looking at cozy home pictures on the internet but kinda miss the magazines. I am redoing a large vertical winter swag wreath for my front door and decorating my flocked tree today. Thanks for the inspiration. Have a great weekend everyone!

  8. Brenda,
    Happy Friday! I hope that you had a nice Thanksgiving!

    Love all of these cute houses and decorating ideas. The gingerbread men are adorable!

    As for the stockings, you could easily make them or other little projects and hand sew them, if it isn’t too painful. Or maybe there is a way to adapt the sewing machine to use your hand on the presser gadget? I am not a sewer so I have no experience just thinking out loud.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. That’s funny. I was thinking the same thing about that presser thing. Is it called a foot pedal? Anyway, I’m not an experienced sewer either, but I was definately thinking along the same lines as you.

  9. Lovely pictures and great ideas. That chocolate sauce is calling my name. I may have to make it right away. Thanks for the inspiration.
