It is snowing outside my kitchen window this morning which cancelled a trip to my daughters.
So I plan to snuggle in and watch old Christmas movies. The Christmas party was a great success. I am not sure if I ever said that my husband teaches at a tec high school. He teaches building trades. 2 of his coworkers brought guitars. one is a plumbing teacher, the other is the auto tec teacher. We sang carols sooooo wonderful! And ate amazing food that everyone brought.
On Saturday two friends and I went to a couple of Christmas open houses. They were selling craft items and antiques. This is the second house. She told us she plans to put it up for sale in the spring. It is in a small amazing New England town and the house is old but has been redone inside and out. Both of my friends turn to me and said you should buy this house. Well first I have a house, and second I want to be closer to my daughter and this would be 1/2 hour further away.
It is in the center of town, This what it over looks. I did buy a few things a Susan Branch Christmas book, a pair of tin sconces, and some yummy Russian tea that she mixes herself.
We made a few other stops and had lunch such a fun day. I got myself a few goodies along the way. a whole box of vintage ornaments for 6.00.
My best find was one more piece of the pottery I am collecting. Not good color in this picture but the top is a blue green and the bottom a chocolate brown.
My husband and I went Christmas shopping last night and parked in front of a supermarket was this coke truck. Amazing right! The whole side was light bulbs.
Most of my Christmas shopping is done I may pick up a few stocking things when we go away next weekend. We do not do a lot of Christmas shopping I buy all year at yard sales and thrift stores now before you gasp in horror it is something that my daughter and I set up last year, we loved it so much we did it again this year. For my two close friends we do the same. And you would be amazed at how many things I find with all the tags on them. Does it really matter where it comes from if it is new? It makes for a less stressful holiday. I hope your weekend was fun or relaxing. have a great day.
