Christmas,the magic time

Hello dear friends!

Although it is past Christmas, the magic still remains...
The last of this years ornies and a Mary with child in a vintage jar. Some things I didnt show during or before Christmas, I'm showing now.
I found this vintage horse on the flea market but it was old and damaged so I couldnt leave him there and after some tweaking he decorates my home :) I havent finished with him yet but I have no ideas, if any of you talented souls have any good ones, You're welcome to share! :) For now, he just has some lace.
Remember what Viola sent me? Because it was after Christmas, I took the snowflakes she made and added them to a table centerpiece so I can enjoy them longer!
I was sent these two oldish metal port glasses by a good friend from Poland and since they were beyond that kind of use, I decorated them and they now hold my birdie tea lights.
Then we have a heart shaped glass bauble that I altered to look like mercury glass and added a decoupage from the inside. I have explained how to do this in one of my older posts. :) This marks the beginning of my Valentine decorations.
The weather has been crazy here! One time at -26 then jumps to +7!!! Last night it was snowing and now were at +3 again! I went out with my doggies in my hoodie, it was that warm, whats up with Winter?!

Many smiles to you all and thank you for the sweet comments!


Witajcie mili ludziska!
Juz po swietach a jeszcze czar ich  pozostal...
Ostatnie w tym roku moje zawieszki swiateczne i matka boska z dzieciatkiem ,ktorych nie pokazalam w czasie swiat.
Znalazlam na targu konika ale starenki i zniszczony byl biedaczek,mimo wszystko kupilam go  i po przerobce drobnej bedzie zdobil moj domek.Jeszcze nie dokonczylam calego bo niemam pomyslu co dalej,a moze ktoras z Was zdolne duszyczki mi doradzi?Narazie  ozdobilam go tylko koronka.
Pamietacie jakie cudenka dostalam od Violi?Przylecialy juz po swietach ale aby sie nimi nacieszyc zrobilam sobie na stol koszyczek z Violusiowymi gwiazdkami.
Od bliskiego przyjaciela z polski dostalam dwa kieliczeczki takie juz leciwe i ozdobilam je koronka oraz pswieczuszka ptaszkiem
Zrobilam serduszko bombke metoda o  jakiej kiedys juz pisalam, wlepiajac do srodka rozyczke,taki poczatek Valentynkowych prac.
Pogoda wariuje zdecydowanie,raz -26 a raz +7,dzisiejszej nocy popruszyl snieg a w dnien + 3 mamy wiosne w Toronto  spacerowalam z psiakami w samej bluzie.Ale zima co?
Zycze wszystkim duzo usmiechu i dziekuje za przemile komentarze.

I saw your comment on Vintage Girl about organic apple cider vinegar for good health and just wanted to say that we have used it for years and find it very beneficial.
Oh, love your pretty ornaments. I'm just wondering where you live as you mentioned the bitterly cold weather. Yikes.

Cudnie klimatyczne ozdoby a bombka po prostu brak słów! ;)
Konika ślicznie przyozdobiłaś, myślę, że na razie niech tak zostanie, niech widać po nim ten upływ lat...
O Violi dostałaś piękne prezenty!

So many beautiful photos...I love the horse you are redoing...the lace is a beautiful touch! xoxo

That glass heart is beautiful. I love the primitive Mary and Jesus in a jar too. So sweet. I recently found a wooden horse at a garage sale too. I figured I could decoupage with paper or lace. Haven't decided yet but could be fun! Yours is precious.

I love the mercury glass look and this heart is really gorgeous! Love that sweet white bird, too! I have an arrangement of pinecones and sweet gum balls on my coffee table right now that looks a little like your arrangement! I need to add some snowflakes! Warm hugs! ♥♥♥
