Old Christmas?

Have you heard of Old Christmas.....see I am not late posting these Christmas Photos...because Old Christmas is not here yet! Read more about it Here
Good save ....uh? Really, time has just gone by to quickly. But before I take it down and pack it up I wanted to share a little with you.

Joey made this door box for me after I saw one one here Behind My Red Door. I Just love it....but my greens are looking a little tired.
Did you notice that we replaced the old metal post with the turned columns? I finally got them painted and Joey and I put them up on a cold Sunday. If you would like to see how our porch looked when we moved in click here.

My Dining room....

Living Room......

The kitchen....

and my hallway near my laundry area.....

I have to send out a big thank you to TinBinFolkaways
I won her giveaway...a $50.00 gift certificate to her Web store
The Tin Bin Lucky me!!!! Check her out....she has some awesome stuff! I had a hard time deciding .....I wanted it all!

I am working on some snowmen and other winter goodies for myself (I got rid of all the cutiesy ones so I am replacing them with homemade primitive ones) so I will share some pictures when I have them displayed.

I hope everyone's new year is off to a wonderful start!
