Happy New Year


I hope you all had a nice new year. I am exhausted. So much to put away and it makes me sad to take Christmas down. How was your holiday season? Anything you feel differently about as we approach the new year?

CHOC Boutique and Some Holiday Fun






Hey there! I know it's been a while since my last post. Things have been crazy busy this season! I am doing a Christmas boutique over at CHOC at the Tustin Country Club if you want to stop by, we are there from 9-6 today! Some amazing finds! Make sure to stop by and say hello if you come in.

I recently saw the new version of "A Christmas Carol" with Jim Carey. What an amazing film! We saw it in 3-D and the snow felt like it was falling around you. The visuals are stunning and of course Jim Carey is amazing. Here are some images from the film. You have to check it out! Have a great weekend friends! Kathie <3

The Mission Inn





The Mission Inn is one of the oldest hotels in California. Many politicians, actors, etc. have stayed in the famed inn. If you have never been there, you must visit. The architecture and ambiance is an absolute dream. If you have never visited the Inn during the festival of lights, you have to go! The entire Inn (the whole block) is lit up and has Christmas activities going on. There are horse drawn carriages where you can take in the lights in a more romantic way. If you want to get more information on the event, click on the link above to get time/date information. Have a great night! Kathie <3

Preview of Home Tour


This is a vintage hat box filled with many of my favorite vintage pretties.



My mother's vintage wind up church that she bought at Sears when I was a child. It is one of my favorite things!

One of my favorite Nativity scenes to celebrate the season.


This is one of the Santa's that my friend Bobbi makes by hand. Isn't he gorgeous?

Here are some pics of some of my favorite things that will be on display for the CHOC Home Tour. Enjoy! Kathie <3

Christmas Lights





The holidays are here and I am always amazed at how grand and gorgeous the lights look. People really go all out and try to make their homes look classic, and unique. Here are some of my favorite images of homes that make me smile. Check out the crown on the last image! Have a great Monday! Kathie <3

Madonna and Child






With the holidays approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to share some of my favorite old world Madonna and Child images. I would love to hear your thoughts. Enjoy! Kathie <3

Thanksgiving Table Settings






I can't believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner! It seems like it was just summertime, and we were all relaxing by the pool! Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year for celebrating with family, and getting ready for the Christmas season. I always try to come up with something new for my table each year, and thought I would share some ideas with you.

Here are some pics of tables I love this year. Please let me know what you plan to do!
