LOOKING FORWARD TO 2010




My husband and I are getting all geared up for the new year. We have several projects that we are going to tackle this year. He has been home a couple of days and getting ancy so he has started on what we will call our Library.......................................Lord knows we need it, or should I say I need it. Yes I have to admit I am a book junkie.....I just love them, old, new, and all in between. I am also a magazine JUNKIE...I have my favorite ones that I look forward to getting all the time. I go to Borders Books and spend my usual amount. Lord knows my job provides for my excessive hobbies (Gardening, I buy plants 3 at a time, Quilting, I am in love with Fig Tree Quilts fabric, and a new fabric line is comming out all the time, Junking, well do I need to say anything about that........the thrill of the hunt). So what ever is in store for you in the new year to come I wish you all well and a happiest of Holiday. xp Mary (JMPPASTIMES)

Happy Christmas Eve


I can not take credit for this photo, it is from the blogs that I have been scanning in the Netherlands. I have become a fan of there blogs in the past few weeks. I AM A NATURE FREAK, along with a lot of other passions, but just the fact that something as simple as a candle, a jar and candy canes resting on some branches makes for a simple and happy display. I have always thought there is little cost to making a home charming and the simple things are what do it for me. May your Christmas Eve be as charming as this photo.

Here is one of my favorite doors that my husband brought home to me, can you believe someone discarded this item. We love how cracked it is. I placed a large clock on the top of the door and my husband put a shelf on it so I could place some books and one of my favorite gifts from nature, the bird nest that I have placed in my crystal pie plate. This door is so heavy that it does not need any bracing it rests against the wall just fine.

VINTAGE WHITE WEDNESDAY




Cake plates are not just for cakes anymore. I have this one in my sewing room. I love to use it as a display with a glass globe, I find it makes a interesting look.facebook

Roses are nice to have anytime of year



   I did not want the regular Christmas plant so my husband got me pink roses. Roses and the color pink are just about the best combination I think.

vintage wrapping

facebook

I just wanted to share a photo of a gift given to me by a dear friend. As you can see it was wrapped in this cute vintage wrapping paper, she then used a vintage dollie and vintage ornaments, the colors are just out of this world. Who would of thought orange and pink would look good.

This is one of my favorite rakes, it is red and has the most wonderful design, I keep it safely in my hall  next to this cute little door, the photo of the child is me at a young age, so if the photo is almost 50 yrs old is that VINTAGE?

VINTAGE BOTTLES



HERE WE TOOK VINTAGE BOTTLES AND TIED RIBBON AND WIRE ON THE NECK OF THE BOTTLE SO IT COULD BE PLACED ON THE TREE, WHEN THE LIGHT SHINES ON THEM IT IS VERY BEAUTIFUL. I THINK NEXT TIME I WILL PUT SOME VINTAGE MUSIC ON SOME AND SOME VINTAGE BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO'S.

VINTAGE TIN TILE STAR


Here is another great work of art created by my husband. It is a vintage tin tile  he made this from a corner piece, after x-mas I plan on white washing it and leaving it out all year long.

WOODEN STOCKING BY (JMPPASTIMES)



Here we have our first wooden stocking made by JMPPASTIMES. I asked my husband to make this for me and since he did such a nice job, I placed my order.............I plan on selling these not only for X-Mas but thru out the year. I want to try a few with some chalk board paint and see how they look. "Let me know what you think"!

VINTAGE SOAP BOX


Here is one of my vintage laundry soap boxes. I have several that decorate my laundry room. I have been collecting them for over 30 years and this one just caught my attention while decorating for the season. I just may put some huckleberries in the box for a finishing touch for the holidays.

HOPE CHRISTMAS BRINGS YOU LOVE

Christmas is a time to reflect on love, health and happiness. I hope all of you will take a moment to thank those that are special to you.

PIN KEEP



Here is a pin keep that I made. I made some to sell on Ebay and our JMPPASTIME SHOP. I added a special strand of vintage buttons to this pin-keep, for a added bonus. I liked how it could be tucked on the limb of my christmans tree. .

BRINGING OUT THE COLLECTABLES



I love to take my vintage dishes and mix with my other collectables. This time of year allows us to be more creative and have our collectables out to be admired. I have been collecting cast off vintage dishes for 30 years, I use them as eveyday dishes. Being a quilter I find mixing patterns and colors more of a visual effect. I placed some of my white vintage buttons in the depression glass creamer to show a bit of texture..

IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE


Santa came early in our home, this is one of our  newest  treasures. This small brass bed, looks like it could of been a sales man sample, it folds up like a brief case so it could be carried very easy. I fell in love with it when I saw it on ETSY.

WINTER CHILL ON MY PURPLE FOUNTAIN GRASS



Here is our tub that I use for my plants. I left the purple fountian grass in the pots. The winter takes it's toll on these plants here in Washington, it's too bad, it is one of my favorite grasses. We just purchased the rusty crown item that you see, we think it was a top from a old wood stove............

Hello and thanks for stopping by. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. This weekend was all about Santa Baby..........he never asks for much. He has been asking to go on a outying for the past month or so. So I surprised him with a lot of love, junking at one of his favorite stores and to dinner. We had such a nice time, the weather was real cold and crisp but sunny. This weekend at our favorite shop  had some great deals, most spaces had huge discounts and we were finding all kind of treasures. I would like to share the items now with you. Let me know how your weekend went and if you were able to spend it with the love of your life. x0x0x0  MARY.

I leave you with some new photo's on decorateing ideas. Thanks for stopping by and come again.
