A Vintage Christmas and a Holiday Note

 Merry Christmas and welcome back my sweet dears!
Today I am sharing more of my vintage style holiday decor around the house.
 I did not do nearly as much as I usually do, but I am enjoying the little special vignettes.

 I am happy to say I am selling a bunch of my decor things from the basement!
I got rid of everything with faces... but not angels of course!
 But santas, snowmen, anything too primitive.... my styles have changed to much in 20 plus years of decorating.
 I did not even put up a big tree this year.  Just two little 4 ft ones.
 I did not want to move a whole bunch of furniture since we are not hosting anything this year.
 I am sorry I did not do a #fleamarketfriday today.  We have been dealing with our 12 year old Great Dane the last two days.  He was missing for 8 days and we thought him gone for good.  A lady posted a picture of him on Facebook and we found him late last night.  He is skinny, beat up and tired.  And failing.  I do not know how much longer, but soon.  12 is incredible age for a dane that was 120 pounds in his prime.  We are keeping comfortable, but I feel it will not be long. 
Homeschooling my 13 year old is going well, but we are going thru my internet like crazy.  I have a data plan instead of unlimited.  I love the program she is using, but it is crazy how much internet we are going thru ($$$).  I love being way out in the country, but it has its setbacks.... no broadband here!
 The school started her over in her courses so we are doing a years worth in seven months.  So we have been working pretty hard to figure all of it out and try to set a workable pace every day.  I cannot tell you how much I enjoy having her home with me and helping her with her classes.
 So to get everything done for the upcoming holiday and keep her on track I will be doing a small blogging break until the New Year.  My girls will be home for two weeks and we will be busy shopping and cooking and merry-making.
 I may do a quick post if the mood strikes me.....
 But if you do not hear from me... don't worry.
 I hope you have a wonderful holiday full of memories and thankfulness.
I know I have so much to be thankful for this Christmas!

See you in the New
