Best Time of the Year!

Ohh, it really is the best time of the year. I love the holidays. LOVE them!

Fall time goodies around my house.

Small pumpkins!
Sweet towel.
Oh, and my sweet new spice rack inspired by the great Brittany.

I also made some cranberry brandy for Thanksgiving! It is phenomenal.

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday - family, great food, love in the air. Especially this year...

My darling-dear Bear proposed!!! (I said yes!)

I love this man and am thankful for a life with him by my side.

Tonight we decorated the house for Christmas!

Tree! (We still need to get a topper! Whoops.)


Stockings hung with care.
Favorite ornament!
Sweet vintage mousie.
Our tree is just a widdle guy!
Smelling good!
Vintage handmade...thing! I love it.
Hazel Atlas egg nog mugs.
Christmas tunes on vinyl...must-have!
And of Pyrex!

Hope everyone else is enjoying this time of year - it truly is the sweetest!



  1. Congratulations, Madee!! Your ring is STUNNING! I am loving all of your holiday decorations, especially the "vintage handmade....thing".

    1. Haha, thanks Erica! It's made out of yogurt lids on the back and seen together. The front is adorned with sweet little plastic figures of elves, deer, and Santa. Ridiculously sweet! :)

  2. Congratulations on your engagement!

  3. Ahhhhh Madee! Congratulations on your engagement. That is soooo exciting and your ring is gorgeous. As is your Pyrex display ;) And thanks for the shoutout :)

    1. Hey! I was just on Facebook and saw another girl I went to high school with got engaged on Thanksgiving. She posted asking if anyone knew any good wedding planners in KC & someone tagged you in it! Small world! And thank you! :)

    2. Woah that is so funny! Such a small world indeed! Love it. We need to plan our meet-up to exchange my blue horizon for your golden pine. I will be back in MO for about a week and a half starting on December 21. We can email about it!

    3. I was just thinking about this - your golden pine is waiting for you! :)

  4. Congrats on the engagement Madee!

    Love the TMNT ornament. I've been on the lookout for one ever since I saw one at a yardsale & the lady wanted $30 for it..

  5. Awww! I LOVE looking at your photos with all your gorgeous vintage things. :) I especially love your winking Santa mug. But more important...

    Congrats on the engagement!!!! YAY!!!!
