No Place Like Home

Today is the 5th and last Monday for No Place Like Home hosted by Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage. Thank you, Sandi, I’ve enjoyed this weekly blog carnival.

Today I have some more of our Christmas Decor to share.


The vintage angels and Santa and Mrs. Claus were my mother-in-law, Verna’s that got passed down to us.

The hanging wreaths and stars were made by our sons in Sunday School when they were little tykes.


These mugs belong to our three children. I can’t remember what year I purchased them but probably the late 80’s.

Four more days if I’m counting correctly. I’m tidying up the bungalow and getting the guest rooms ready for Christmas Day. The only things left to purchase are food items for our meals to have on hand. We already bought our Rib Roasts and I’ll be roasting root veggies plus brussels sprouts and we can’t forget the creamed corn and Yorkshire Pudding. Haven’t decided on dessert yet.

We are on our way to Spokane today (70 miles south) for the last of our shopping. Heading to the Ukrainian Market (Kiev) and Costco to name a couple stops. I’ll visit blogs later tonight.

Hope all is Merry and Bright at your home.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  3. Thanks for the holiday tour of your home!

    I’m admiring your lovely collection of teawares. I think I spotted the Friendly Village by Johnson Brothers?

    I’m an ’80s childs and the retro mugs reminded me of the mugs that we used to sell as school fundraisers.

  4. Thanks for giving us a peek at your pretty Christmas decor, Ellen. Seeing sentimental things always warms my heart. I hope your shopping went well. Merry Christmas blessings are sent to you and your family.

  5. I hope your day shopping was successful. I love the Christmas plates you display – the red transferware is especially pretty. It’s fun to bring out things that we haven’t seen for 11 months. Merry Christmas, Ellen.
