Getting ready to relax and celebrate Christmas!

The work week is nearly done!!
 I still have gifts to wrap and a few more things to cross-off my to-do list, but I can see the end in sight.  
Chris's elementary schools held ugly Christmas sweater contests two days in a row.
Everything on this sweater minus the flashing lights, were purchased from estate sales.  Crazy fun!
Always tweaking, I keep finding a few more favorite vintage decorations to put out.
I'm especially loving my putz house mantle this year.  
We're looking forward to visiting with friends and family over these next few days.

In the midst of all this holiday chaos, be sure to find time to play!!

How fun is that ugly sweater contest, we do that at my school to, although I did not participate but I saw some good ones. I'm thinking it should be called most creative Christmas sweater, not ugly Christmas sweater because most of them are not really ugly. :)
Your decorating with all your vintage Christmas is so cute. I like the sleigh on the globe!
Have a wonderful Christmas!

Whoooo-Hooooo---it is almost Christmas break for you!!!
I started laughing right out loud at that second picture of Chris. If you look at it it looks like he was wearing a CHRISTMAS TREE attached to the back of his sweater. lol

Love all your vintage pieces. You know I do! xo Diana

Ugly sweaters for sure! SO much fun.Your mantle display is wonderful. I'm admiring your flocked Santa sled with Santa and the reindeer. I've been getting a few good purchases on ebay. Hope to find one of those! Have a great weekend and lots of fun! Maggie

Love your Christmas decor, especially the putz house mantle, sweet. Those sweaters are hysterical. Chris sure is a good sport!
Yes, time to enjoy!

Santa's sled on the globe is too cute, as is everything else! And love the ugly sweaters! I hope you and your family have a glorious Christmas!!!

Year after year, I always say I am going to do something with the mass amounts of putz houses I have. And year after year, they never get put out! Next year I am going to talk my sister into putting them on a wreath for me like Martha Stewart did this year!

I loved seeing Chris on IG with his ugly sweaters. What a good sport!

Happy Holidays & have an awesome weekend!

What a good sport your husband is to wear not one but two special Christmas sweaters. I always love to see your vintage decorations. Everything looks so pretty. I hope you and your family have a blessed and merry Christmas.
