Merry Christmas!

I know I've skipped fall but I started decorating for Christmas on October 22 this year!  Handing out candy on Halloween and decorating the tree was certainly interesting.  Our home was open for a Christmas Walk to raise money for the developmental disabled.

Here's our 1955 Hudson Hornet just returning from the country.

vintage paper wrapped gifts in the back window...

and a wreath and bow to make it complete

a view of the porch...

love these planters that Steinbrinks landscaping did...

next to the front door...
"...and they will call him Immanual-which means God with us"

can you come over and have a cup of cocoa with me?

my mom cut greens from her farm...can't believe how beautiful this turned out!  pine cones and a candle in a basket with twigs sticking out, set it on greens and finished!

 another view...

sissy let me borrow her sled, the skates are the greenery that the landscapers added...

I'll take you inside tomorrow and then show you the pictures after the snow came!  


  1. BEAUTIFUL!!! Missing my creative friend during these very crafty days :) Cant wait to see the inside.

  2. It looks so cozy! I love the coffee pot and mugs!

  3. I hope that you have a station wagon with paneling next year. Trent would make a great Clark W. Griswold.

  4. Beautiful Karla! You are the most creative person I know!

  5. Did you have the car in the driveway during the house tour? That is SUCH A FABULOUS IDEA, I LOVE it!!! I would also totally come have a cup of cocoa with you friend. Can't wait to see more!

  6. That is one amazingly cool car! Looked like a photo straight from the 50s. Love all your decore!
