They are so darn sweet!
Of course our cherry cottage has "cherry ornaments"!
Yes Yes Yes!
This one is one of my favorites!

Come on in and powder your nose!
I love this room!

I love love loooove my vintage shiney brights!
Next year all of these will be on our tree!
I plan to do a green tree with all my vintage ornies!
I can just picture it in our newly decorated frontroom

This lil guy makes me smile!
One of my favorite shabby stockings!
I painted this nut cracker back when I first started taking tole painting lessons!
Mannnnny years ago! :-)
Ouuu don't you love this feather wreath!
3 sweet resin santas { I painted these too}
These cute spindle santas are some of my favorites!
I painted them back when our home was very country-ish!

My santa collection!
I painted them all!
Three wise men!
I painted many years ago on paper mache cones!

Don't look at the ugly light fixture!
I have an antique chandelier to replace this with... one of these days!
This is the dinning room light with handpainted ornies and glass icicles hung from pearl garland!
I love it!
Dinning room curio cabinet has a touch of shabby chic christmas, with silk roses and handpainted ornaments!
My favorite santa..... I painted many years ago!
As you can see our cottage is an eclectic mix of Christmas Treasures!
