Welcome

Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

Merry Christmas

I swear I'll be back soon with Germany trip stories and pictures but until then I'll share pictures of my home all decked out for the holidays.  As you may recall we had just moved into this home when the holidays rolled around last year so I elected not to decorate.  This year with the trip I seriously considered skipping it again but in the end I just wanted to do it!  So I sucked it up and spent some long days/evenings unpacking my stuff and can I just say......how does someone that has purged like I have still have 20 totes of Christmas décor?  I might just be a hoarder....nope it's official I am a hoarder!  I did scale back and only did the tv room in the basement and not the guest bedroom/bath, Mark's office, ect  
Clarice is loving the fact we put up the big tree for the first time in 4 years and nothing has changed because she likes the view from inside the tree the best!

Come on in

My favorite display on the island-holly from bushes in front yard nestled in stacked fluted cake pans
Snowmen


The view from kitchen out the dining room windows just gets me every time

  4. Donna! How did I not know about your blog? It's beautiful, just like your lovely home for Christmas! I can't wait to hear about your trip to Germany! I'm hoping there was plenty of gluhwein! (Sad about the Berlin market tragedy, though) Frohe Weinachten!
