Happy Holidays to you and yours! I know my blog has been pretty quiet through out the whole holiday season, but I am hoping to play catch up over the next few weeks.
I came down with pneumonia right after Halloween, and it really knocked me out much more then I expected. Besides making sure I was caught up with my normal work stuff (POM, license design stuff, etc.) there just wasn’t a lot of time left for blogging.
Here are a few peeks from our home this holiday season. We did our normal white tree, and real tree. This year’s real tree was extra skinny to fit into a space without moving furniture around, and it worked out well!
I’ve been enjoying these few days after Christmas to clean up my computer which was loaded down with three years worth of photos. I ordered prints, made a slideshow dvd, and now I am looking forward to starting a new year (and promising myself to be a bit better with photo organization, but we will see ;)

Toy Cabinet Makeover


For the last year I have been on the lookout for a child sized wooden cabinet. I have a collection of vintage tin doll dishes (most of them being cute little tin cups) and I wanted to add hooks and hang them in a cute little cabinet. My search had not been going well because most cute vintage ones I was finding were pricey little things, and I am just too cheap. I knew if I held out for something that it would eventually come along. I was super excited when I spotted this one a few weeks ago for $8.00. It was covered in stickers and pretty dirty, but it cleaned up well!
These photos are actually more of a “in progress” then finished, but you get the idea. I still plan to add some cute decals to the front of the doors, and I need to screw in all my hooks to hang the cups. Meanwhile though it sure does look a lot cuter then it did!

around the house


Just a few photos from around the house. I realized there has been a lot switched around since the last time I posted house photos. I decided to try and take a few houses photos every month. One thing I wish I had photos of was all of the houses we grew up in. My Dad was in the military so we did our fair share of moving. I’d love to look at the details like toys we had in our room, the bed spread, what our couch looked like.
