Santa brought me a camera!

Well I finally got my own camera from Santa!! Of course, I still have a lot to figure out about it, but now let me show you some pictures of Christmas around our condo. This is the wreath that is on our front door. It was purchased three years ago at a shop in the Hampden section of Baltimore. I love the vintage shiny brites in all my fav colors!

More lovely shiny brite goodness! These balls were picked up at the antique mall in Emmitsburg, Maryland and the Goodwill in Westminster for dirt cheap right after Christmas last year. I piled them into a zinc drawer that was purchased at the Old Lucketts Store. I made the Peace letters from chipboard letters purchased at Hobby Lobby, added german glitter glass ala Miss Mustard Seed, for a sparkly and colorful centerpiece on the dining room table.

Here is the view from the other side - JOY!

I really, really love these! Colorful makes me happy :) Well, I am off to play with my camera a bit more and try to figure out more about this blogging stuff - Merry Christmas! Hope Santa was good to you all :)

  4. Morning Karen...welcome to blog world. It's always a bit confusing to start with...well I've been doing it since September and I'm still confused - but that's probably an age thing!

    Rather envious of your fabulous decorations too...very long story but due to having our travel plans ruined last minute we stayed at home with no decorations or presents...I obviously was very naughty all year because Santa didn't visit me :) Have fun with your camera and look forward to seeing some of your photos soon.
    Warmest wishes Carol from - the blog that gives you laughter lines (you put off yet?)
