Holiday Joy

I made this succulent terrarium last year (a couple died since then) and decided to pay a Christmas homage to my dear friends, George & Angela Tompras in Phoenix, AZ by adding some deer and melted snowmen. Merry Christmas, desert friends!

My collection of vintage ornaments:

Village scene that looks way better in person:

Check out what my sister and her boyfriend gave to me for Christmas this year:
Yep, an antique organ made by a company in Chicago. I can't recall the name at the moment and I haven't researched this particular organ yet, but I will and I will be sure to keep the blog updated. I was so overly dumbfounded when they pulled up in my driveway and unveiled this beautiful wooden organ with amazing red detailed accents. I felt like I was dreaming. Apparently, their neighbors were getting rid of it and had it sitting out on the curb. Can you believe it? Who would get rid of something like this!? And, the best part is, it actually works!!! It really was the missing puzzle piece to my home and everything just feels complete now. No more bad moods in my house; each time I walk into the room and see the organ, nothing but pure joy remains. Thanks, Morgan! You're the best!

PS: Notice in the window on the right, Santa dropped by to take a peak into my house and make sure everyone was being nice. He says, "hi!" ;)

That is so cool! Very thoughtful of little Moggie, too! I can't wait to you girls get here. I wish you could leave today. But get up early tomorrow, please, so you can get here while it's still daylight.
