Vintage Find of the Week!

Okay, first I must say that I LOVE Christmas! It is my favorite month, my Anniversary, my husbands birthday, and a time when I can go hog wild with decorating for Christmas! The other day when my mom and I were out and about we came across these beauties! Swoon! Santa, 2 reindeer and a candle all for a great deal! It was meant to be. My mom and I filled my car (no surprise there...) with lots and vintage finds, these lovelies and 2 large snowmen for my mom's porch. My kids were squished in the middle of the car with vintage lawn ornaments all around them, a true sign of a fabulous day!

So what do you think? Arn't their faces so sweet! I just love them. Oh, and Santa, he is almost 5 feet tall!  Now I have to convince my husband that he loves them too, since they will be clogging up our storage for the rest of the year! Maybe I can hang them from the ceiling?? Oh well, I am off to Home Depot now to get some poinsettias to put on my potting bench. Maybe I will look for some seriously cool tool to win my husbands love back while I am there. :) 

What sort of vintage decor do you use to decorate for Christmas? I can't wait to see it!

Holiday Mail for Heroes

The holiday season is just around the corner and it’s time again to start thinking about being part of the 2011 American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes. For a fifth year, American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes are partnering to ensure all Americans have an opportunity to send a touch of home this holiday season to members of our U.S. military, veterans and their families, many of whom will be far away from home this holiday season.
Starting this fall and throughout the holiday season, the Red Cross is working with Pitney Bowes, a mail stream technology company, to collect and distribute holiday cards to American service members, veterans and their families in the United States and around the world.
The process is very simple and takes no time at all - All you need is a pen and piece of paper to share your appreciation for the sacrifices members of the U.S. Armed Forces make to protect our freedoms The Holiday Mail for Heroes mail box is open and ready to receive for your cards. Please send all mail to:

Holiday Mail For Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

Sending a “touch of home” to American men and women who serve our country is the perfect way to express your appreciation and support during the holiday season. Please follow the Card Guidelines below so that your cards arrive to the service men and women. Thanks for your support!

Card Guidelines:
Every card received will be screened for hazardous materials by Pitney Bowes and then reviewed by Red Cross volunteers working around the country.
Please observe the following guidelines to ensure a quick reviewing process:
  • All cards being sent in for 2011 Holiday Mail For Heroes program should be postmarked no later than Friday, December 9, 2011.
  • Ensure that all cards are signed.
  • Use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member.” Cards addressed to specific individuals can not be delivered through this program.
  • Only cards are being accepted. Do not send letters.
  • Do not include email or home addresses on the cards, as the program is not meant to foster pen pal relationships.
  • Do not include inserts of any kind, including photos, as these items will be removed during the reviewing process.
  • We encourage participants to mail as many cards as they are comfortable sending. If you are mailing a large quantity, please bundle the cards and place them in large mailing envelopes or use a flat rate box from the post office. Each card does not need its own envelope, as cards will be removed from all envelopes before distribution.
  • Please refrain from sending holiday cards with glitter. Many of these cards will be delivered to military and veterans medical facilities and the glitter could interfere with a patient's recovery
