DECK THE HALLS FA LA LA LA LA

WELCOME TO DECK THE HALLS
(my halls that is!!!)
I have joined up with Tinsel & Company.
take a peek over there to see what others have for decorating ideas.
You might be inspired.
I have been doing a little bit of decorating, a little at a time.
I started with the porch leading into our home.
Filled with greenery I used my vintage minnow bucket on the table.
I got the dried items from my friend Barb. My favorite little wooden boxes I purchased in New York State.
Do you notice the antique bee smoker??
Through out the house I have these mason jars filled with snow and miscelleaneous bulbs, bells, acorns, pincones and whimsical holiday items.
Some of the jars have glass votive inserts in the top.
Here is the "Candy Cane Express" this picture was taken a few years ago at Santa's Workshop in upstate New York. I will share other photos as we go along with our holiday celebrations.
I have also joined in at the following holiday blog parties: Be sure to go on over to see what everyone else is up to, it is sooo much fun!!!
I specially would like to thank all of the hosts.
(Feathered Nest Friday)
(Vintage Inspiration Friday)
(Show And Tell Friday) Thanks for stopping by.
Happy decorating!!
