Monday, Monday....

Today I'm linking up with:
Joan for Vintage Christmas Monday
Susan for Metamorphosis Monday
Cindy for Make It For Monday
 Mary for Mosaic Monday
Susan for Deck The Halls

Vintage Christmas Monday with Joan over at Anything Goes Here
Deck the Halls with Susan over at Thoughts From Over the Rainbow

My Mother in Law made this gorgeous Jewelry Christmas Tree for us when we were first married....some 35 years ago. Actually it was a combined effort between her and my Father in Law. He making the frame and base and she using vintage baubles to make the lovely tree.
The black velvet back ground has makes the jewelry pop.
We have put it up each year and though it may be on it's umpteenth set of lights it has aged gracefuly.   



This Gurley Santa Candle belonged to my Mom.
 I remember placing him on top of the TV each year while growing up.
Four white plastic Reindeer went in front of him.
He has seen better days but I still love him ;~)
The Shiny Brites in the glass vase behind him also belonged to her as did the tiny ornament garland draped along my mantel shelf.

Met Monday with Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch
Make it for Monday with Cindy over at Cottage Instincts

Remember this great leaded window I scored?
She has finally made it onto the wall in the kitchen.
The kitchen makeover mentioned here and here
has stalled with the Holidays, but it's just about done anyway. 
The finsihing touches will take place in January.
Anyhoo, the window is hung and decorated for the Holidays too!
I purchased this great sign from Donna over at Daizy Donnas .
When I saw it I had to have it! It's so cute.
She has the sweetest signs, pop over and check them out.

I placed it inside the window.

 

I added an old cranberry wreath to the corner


''Jack Frost's
Snowflake Cafe`
Stop in and take the chill off''


I love the way is transports you to outside the shop looking in!
I imagine myself standing on the sidewalk, snow falling
and needing a bit of warmth.
I think this just might be a piece of Holiday that will be around all year!
