Christmas Present

Did I mention that we are skipping Thanksgiving over here at blog sweet blog? That's right, we're fast forwarding to Christmas. And since I LOVE Christmas music, I had to create a little holiday Playlist for your listening enjoyment. I might add some more songs as the season progresses, we'll see.
Now you can't have Christmas without decorations right? That being said, I wanted to show you some recent additions to my collection. I found this beautiful wreath over at Bayberry Cove. I think it's going to be great with my Cody Foster houses and Christmas in July trees. Ooh, and it's larger than it looks too. Twelve inches across!
This little shadow box came from the ever talented Suzy at Georgia Peachez. She is such a clever girl! I love the way she repurposed this vintage ornament box.
And finally, I scored this adorable corsage from Beth. I stalk her shop on a daily basis to admire the amazing goodies she creates. Check out her blog. She gives the tutorial for making a similar corsage. How sweet is that?

Eventually, I hope to show you how I incorporate these new lovelies into my holiday decorating scheme. It might be helpful if I take down the Halloween decorations first though.
