White Wednesday Hello!

I'm joining Kathleen's White Wednesday where I see lots of tempting posts today! 
I just grab some of my white photos and chatter with you for my posts on these days :) 

Yes, I should be cleaning the hall closet...the one crammed with Christmas decor I'm not even in love with. 
What is your choice Christmas look for your home? 
Do you change it yearly or stick with your heirlooms? 
My uncle who recently died has ornaments dating back to the 1800's. They were all sentimental to him as he knew who they came from ,etc. He never parted with a Valentine or anything. All with tiny stickers with dates on them. 
I love looking at all of it and always enjoyed his decorations. 
My aunt was cool with all of it and let him do the house for holidays with all the old stuff. 

I need to allow my kids to be comfortable in our holiday home and not have to be careful all the time.
My feeling about Christmas really is to savor the savior. 
(I'll add that God doesn't care if I even put up a Nativity scene...
He wants me to love my He now that would be my best gift to Him)
(although He doesn't think badly of me if I put a reindeer on the mantle)
(because I do love my family by doing things for them...which might include making our home festive)
(okay, I'll shut up now.)
As I get older the decorating means less to me. 
(probably not what a blogger wishing for readership and Etsy sales needs to say :) 

All this prompted by an old crusty sign I saw in town! (please copy it and use it if you like it) 
Merry Christmas :)

White McCoy pottery is something I find regularly in my thrifting.
I used to pass it up but have recently found it makes a nice display all grouped together!  
I dream of having pink peonies dripping from each piece :) I think I did once and it was incredible!
The cat is my latest piece and I got it for 50 cents. 

A lid to a china box long gone ...and an old chalk box...
Doesn't take much to make me stare and say "ahhhh..."
Some people like Lladro. I'd shrivel up and DIE if I had to buy high priced toys like that for myself!
But you are cool if that is what you like :) 

Tomorrow is the Doll Quilt show here! 
Hope we have some to show :) 
Please come back...I made two myself!
