december 2010 008 1 I added a few leaves from a thrift store wreath and a red ribbon, but I was so pleased with it for $10!! I think it will be a good all winter wreath…

december 2010 085 1Can you believe that my Mom found this statue (3-4 yrs ago??) at Walmart??

Our It’s a Wonderful Life village. I’m not making any promises, but I would love to tell you more about it next week…

And our kitchen hutch~the candy canes are quickly dwindling….
 december 2010 102 1 Do you remember my spring HOPE sign? We changed it to one of our favorite Christmas songs with “hope” in it. I used windsong font for the top and bottom line and Perpetual Titling MT for the word “hope.”

The Dollar Tree silver bells can’t stay out of the pictures…

Thanks for hanging out in my home with me~Merry Christmas!


  1. Everything looks beautiful! I especially love the candy canes in the milk glass (I'm stealing that idea) and that "Hope" sign. So fun. Thanks for joining my party! Merry Christmas!! :)

  2. Love those wreaths!! It inspires me to make some of my own :)

  3. Your wreath is really pretty, Melissa! I'd love to hear more about the cute little village. I've been thinking about doing something like that when I get my curio cabinet cleaned out. The silver ball ornaments in the big jar are my favorites!

  4. Very pretty, Melissa! What a great wreath! Love your framed Hope. Do you just print that size out at home? Candy canes still disappear at my house and my "kids" are 20 and 23!

  5. Gorgeous.. I love your the revised version of the HOPE sign (fab idea that just might get copied :)

  6. Oh what a beautiful home! I wish I could come over and watch Kruegars and have some chocolate and enjoy it in person!:) This is our first time in 4 years getting out the IAWL village and boy have we missed it. Michael would love me to put a few of those village pieces of yours in my purse! I am going to ask for that HOPE sign for my next b-day!;) LOVES!

  7. I love that you give us all the good deals! and your decorations look amazing! LOVE THEM!

  8. Beautiful Melissa! Why does your village look so different than mine?? I love the little spotlights you must have buried in the snow. We need some of those too. :)

    BTW, I forced my teenage niece and nephews to watch the movie today. They have never seen it! But they enjoyed it. Mostly the second half through the end. haha

  9. It looks so pretty have a special talent for arranging things. I love the kids would love it too.

  10. Oh Wow, I love it all! Love the silver balls and all the other interesting ways you displayed your Christmas decor!

  11. I really like your hope sign. And the statue of Joseph, Mary and Jesus? I have that one too! I couldn't believe that they had it at Wal-mart either, it's just too pretty.
    Merry Christmas,

  12. I love the white hutch with touches of red and silver. Beautiful! Merry Christmas.


  13. I have the Bedford Falls village, too! Got it in 1995. My brother has the Christmas Story village. Love them!

  14. I really like the mix of greenery in your "Merry Christmas" wreath!

    Recently found your site...I love the name of it - the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" has such a strong message of joy. I watch it every Christmas season!

  15. the kitchen hutch looks great!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
