Blue and White Christmas

I just love decorating for Christmas! Here is a collection of some of my favorite things, old and new(ish). The white church on the far right was made by my Grandpa Norm in the 50's. The angel candle under the cloche is one that's been in my family ever since I can remember. Most everything else are items I've been given or collected over the years. The only things I've bought recently are the burlap pot for the tree and the cotton string balls, both thrift store finds! I'm really into "using what you have" decorating lately. Thank you Pinterest for all the fabulous ideas!! 

I hope you are enjoying the season as much as I am!

What is this?

Does anyone know what this is? I collect all kinds of wire things, but this one has me stumped... any thoughts would be appreciated! It's approx. 6 x 6 in.

A Few Pics of My Home

While taking pics of items to put in my Etsy shop today, I decided to also take some pics of favorite things around my house. Enjoy!

I have two strawberry plants that are still going strong. About every other day I'm able to pick a few handfuls for my cereal. They are small but so sweet! 

Today I went for a hike at a nearby park with my mom and dad and we came home with tons of blackberries. I made muffins, washed a huge bowlful to snack on, and froze the rest. I think I'll make one more trip back before summer is over.

A Bigger Space!

I have been wanting to rent a bigger space at The Fussy Duck (887 Commercial Street, Salem, Oregon) for awhile and I finally did it! It's still not as big as Birdsong Cottage but I love my new space. I can now put small pieces of furniture and of course more vintage goodies in there! Here are a few pics:
