Spashes of Christmas around my house

Okay ya'll here it is. This is my second post for the day, or at least in 24 hours so visit the other one below if you have an ugly closet...
Welcome! Oooh, thanks for the invite Kimba to your Open House! And thanks to new friends for dropping in to check out what's been keeping me busy! I've also linked to The Inspired Room for today's Friday Linky Love.  Enjoy Christmas site seeing around blogland!

Without further adeiu... (is that how you spell that frenchy word?)

Spray painted ornaments hanging from my door knockers... wrapped my picture. Sorry for the goofy angle, it's in my hallway.

My favorite mirror... a thrift store find repainted. I love it every day I see it... I still feel the thrill of the kill (or find)!

Life in the backround... Please ignore:) Oh, and ignore the smudge marks on the mirror. Kids cleaned this for their chores... price you pay for responsible children.

Garland over my not-hearth. She's over my hutch. WITH a birdcage... Nester inspired!

Must of had too much of Kimbas wassil when I was taking a few of these shots... pardon. They look great if you squint your eyes!

Banister garland.... My pinecone is almost as big as Kimbas!

The pumpkins again!... How are they holding up?

Just found out... This one got replaced with another from our garden. Funny though, they don't squish until you poke them... I found out when I was trying to move them for the picture.

Wassil effect is getting worse!! Keep Squinting!

Thanks for visiting! Good to meet you!

Beautiful! That mirror is fabulous! I would have tripped you and ripped it from your fingers if we had been in the thrift store at the same time. ;-)

And I love seeing a peek of real life in the background.

Merry Christmas,

Love it all...the pumpkin is the best. Definite beauty and bedlam moment. And I would be thrilled every time I saw that mirror as well. What color was it when you found it...and how much? We want the scoop. :)
