Still Decorating

I am still decorating! Ok I go to work in between and I have had a cold. But I am still decorating.
 This snowman is one of my husband's creations. He is pretty cute,(the snowman and the husband). As you can see what snow we had is now gone but more is on the way.
 This is on the my husband's shop the door is a brighter red not this orange.
 And of course the potting shed.
 Today was dump day and I found a good one. This is a vanity mirror. I thought is might be a new one pressed wood ,but no way it is maple and has a very old heavy mirror. It needs to be cleaned up but it is in great shape.
 Then on to the thrift store to drop of a donation. Ok I couldn't just drop and run could I ???? I found this cake plate. I have to go to a cookie swap in a couple of weeks and I think this would make a great hostess gift one whole dollar. I also got a new white blouse in my size from Talbots with  all the tags!!!!!                                                                       I have  a sore throat so I am off to take a nice hot shower and get into bed early. Welcome to my new follower! Let me know what you have all been up to and how your holiday decorating is going. Have a great night

The sled with greens is my favorite I think. Although the snowman comes in a close second. The maple mirror would be beautiful on a dressing table. Do people even have them anymore? I have always wanted one since I was a little girl. There is an empty spot in my bedroom where I know a dressing table would look great there. I even know what kind of little bench/stool I would sit on. As usual a great post.

Your decorating photos are all too beautiful to choose a favorite! Great shopping scores! I love the mirror, do you have any ideas on how you'll use it? I see a big candle in a hurricane lamp reflecting off it, of course you may see something completely different, LOL!!!
