Show & Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

It's time again for Show and Tell Friday!

This week I would like to share my items I got from Vintage & Vogue. If you haven't been to my blog this week, please scroll down to my posts I did on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to see how beautifully this shop is decorated for Christmas!

I fell in love with these two cherub ornaments with the hanging crystals!

Everyone needs a castle! The colors on this one were perfect for me!

I not only love castles but cottages too! This Bethany Lowe ornament had to come home with me!

This was a gift from Linda and the ladies at Vintage & Vogue! I almost bought him when I was in there last Friday but decided that I had already spent enough with all those ornaments so I put him back! When I went back in on Sunday to take photos to share with you they had him all wrapped up for me! How nice was that!

Here's a photo of everything together! Every year I add to my collection of Christmas decor and now I have quite a bit! I can hardly wait to start decorating! One of the radio stations here is already playing Christmas music around the clock and that really got me in the holiday spirit! I think I may have mentioned that my company is having a shut-down next week so I'm going to start decorating really early this year since I'm not working!

Hi Cindy

What great Bethany Lowe pieces. I have a few that were given to me as gifts. I've never seen the ornaments though. And I adore you sweet castle.

Thanks so much for hosting. If I don't talk to you next week, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and have fun decorating - can't wait to see what you'll do!!

How fun that you will have some extra time to do your holiday decorating!! I love your pretty finds especially that cute snowman!

Cindy I was wondering if it would be ok to link two posts this week or if you just want 1 post from each blogger. I have a pretty beadwork one that I thought I might link up.


Candy @ The Little Round Table said...

Beautiful pretties!! What a great shop, I really enjoyed all the images from your visit.

I LOVE your blog, Cindy, and have been reading it since the Merc did an article about you! I'm a local girl (Saratoga) and was wondering what station is already playing Christmas music. I thought I had to wait another week! Help!



Cheryl said...

Beautiful start to the holiday season. I'm putting up my Christmas tree this weekend. Thats how I decorate for Thanksgiving! lol

Blue Creek Home said...

All of the ornaments you chose are so pretty.
I am looking forward to seeing your romantic home dressed for the holidays.

Cindy said...

Sharlene, it's KOIT 96.5! I got in my car after work yesterday and when I started my car and the radio came on I couldn't believe it! I was singing Christmas songs all the way home from work! It put me in the BEST mood!

Kayren said...

I hope I'm not sounding dumb, but I don't know what Bethany Lowe pieces are. I do love your castle, and it reminds me of a couple of Bavarian glass snowmen ornaments I have.

We've been listening to Christmas music in the van while we're driving around. We just started this week. I'm starting to decorate the second floor (today) and leaving the first floor fall until Thanksgiving. Hopefully I'll get my tree up in front of the window tomorrow and my two new (big end-of-season sale last year) urn trees on the front porch.

Marianne said...

Your ornaments are beautiful. But that is no surprise given the wonderfulness of that shop.
Thanks for letting me join the party.
