Lots of Favorite things and a Giveaway winner!

I love my decorations in the lanai.

It’s where we spend most of our time so it’s nice to have a coffee table with things we use and enjoy and some special treasures.

I think these 2 little angels are some of the cutest thrift finds I’ve ever found.

The little sledding boys are very sweet, too!

And speaking of sweetness. I won a wonderful giveaway from Ruth at Antiques and Teacups and she put all kinds of goodies and special teas in the package with a gorgeous tea cup.

I was looking at all your lovely seashells and could almost imagine the warmth on Florida beaches...I was wearing my down filled coat, wellies and mittens yesterday on ours! Mac the Corgi almost blew away as he attempted to corral the seagulls...
Happy Holidays Dear (and by the by, my favourite ornament is a little chimney sweeper, a 'regular' on our tree for the last 4 decades!)

Hi Diane, I love the little figurines nestled with the shells. So pretty and dainty they are! It's so cold here and we are expected 1 to 3 inches of snow tomorrow! I hope you are enjoying the holidays. I can't believe every time I look at your blog you are winning something from someone. You are one lucky girl. Take care.
