Christmas Baking Kitchen Centerpiece With Vintage Kitchenware

Christmas Baking Kitchen Centerpiece Last week, my husband and I needed to go to another town to pick up a car cooler for his semi-truck. While there, he took me to an antique store where I spotted two antique sifters and a loaf pan in the same booth. They were very reasonably priced, so I bought all four. Both of the sifters are Bromwell’s. But the sifter with the red wooden handle is my favorite. I love all vintage loaf {Read More}

Hot Cocoa Station Christmas Tote with Cans

Hot Cocoa Station Christmas Tote with Cans As a child I used to love going to the mall during the Christmas season.

In this post: Deck the Halls with Handmade Christmas Signs! I’ve been a busy little bee the last week.  I only have a few days until my mom arrives.  My oldest and middle sons will arrive with their wives and dogs a few days after that.  That means we’ll have six indoor dogs at our house on Christmas day!  I’ll be so happy to see Pico again.  I’ve missed him so much.
