A Christmas Present For Myself

I know it's a bit early, but when it comes to Christmas, I just can't help myself.  I saw this cute little elf while out shopping, and had to buy it.

Then, I came across a sweet, smaller elf.  I just had to bring it home too.

Isn't this rose covered in snow pretty?  I think I'm going to decorate with white, silver, and red this year.

We are awaiting the Christmas season here, as it is our favorite holiday of all.

'Tis the season
to be jolly,

Love the elves, they are really cute. I am in the process of taking down a lot of my fall so I can put it away and start taking out my Christmas decorations and Christmas Village. Have everything all mapped out as to where this and that should go. Sometimes I have the memory of a nat. LOL therefore lists ....
Have a super weekend - looks like we are going to have a perfect Fall one.

I love your little elves. There is something so cute and cheerful about them. I just got a catalogue from the Vermont Country Store with the cutest elves on the cover. Just made me smile when I saw it.
The rose is very pretty too.

Hi Sherri,

I can't believe Christmas is almost here!!! The elves are adorable and silver, white and red sounds like a lovely Christmas color combination.

What really catches my eye is the Starbuck's drinks. They make some wonderful drinks!!! How about a Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate???

syros2js said...

Both your elves are adorable!!!
I also loved this rose!!!
(It 's never early to show how much us!

Sing we joyous, all together,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Heedless of the wind and weather,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!!!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I get so excited seeing this little sweeties. I collect elves and pixies. Did you by any chance find these at a regular store or a thrift store? I wish they would make them again! Sweet hugs!

Joyce Olson said...

Oh I just know that Christmas in your house is one of the best places to be!

Hi Sheri: Those little elves are adorable. Love 'em.

I REMEMBER THESE ELVES! Did you get them in a vintage shop my dear? I remember these from childhood!

Time is melting through my fingers....before I know it, it will be Thanksgiving and I am not even ready!

So then, will you be decorating in red this year my dear? I'm not sure if I'll be using silver and aqua or silver and's fun trying to decide!


donna said...

Good morning my dear one! Thanks for stopping by last night and yes, these elves are exactly like the vintage ones from our childhood! I think having vintage items as part of the décor are truly special for this time of year as all of us in some way. idea for a blog post! LOVE TO YOU! Anita

Barbara said...

I don't think you can shop to early for Christmas. Your little elf is such a cutie and that gorgeous Rose sprinkeled with snow is something I would buy in an instant too.

I love to collect cups and mugs and I never can resist the urge to buy a Starbucks Christmas mug every year, no matter the shipping costs. When Christmas is near I always wish I lived in the USA :)

So cute!

Palomasea said...

Me too, Sheri, me too! We just had a our first dusting of snow, and I have been singing carols ever since... :)
I just love these adorable elves, and I hope you will share the decor with us....
Your message warmed my heart...thank you!! :)))
I have not been posting as often as I would like...the past month has been keeping me busy with family issues....and when there is time to be at the computer, I like to visit dear blog my posts sometimes have to wait.
I wish you a terrific weekend!!

Those elves have got such cute little faces. I don't like to think too much about Christmas until Halloween has passed and then our Bonfire Night which was earlier this week. I'm ready now to have a look around the shops!

Heather Lindstrom said...

Good morning Sheri!
What cute little elves you have gifted yourself with for Christmas. I always think it's a good idea to get a jump on the season in anticipation. By the way, my email address is:
Let's chat on email my lovely friend!
Happy Friday!
xx, Heather

Patricia said...

White, silver and red is a delicious combination for Christmas, Sheri. Love your elves, they are the sweetest little guys, and I sense you are a Christmas lover, just like me. I have my tree up, working on it now, and more to follow. Happy weekend, xox Patricia

Stephanie said...

Oh what a precious elf! Christmas is just around the corner :)

I was visiting blogs and I happened to come across yours (your blog name captivated me) so here I am visiting your delightful sight. I am now happily following along and I look forward to visiting again.

I love Christmas as well. My friends and family always tease me about it. I've already listened to a Christmas one else was home. Your little elf is so cute I can see why you had to buy him.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Sheri, Yes, we are preparing to decorate too. I love your theme this year of white, red and silver. It will be gorgeous. Oh the sweet little elves are so cute. I can see you had to bring them home.
I just love that rose with the snow on it. Too pretty.
I am bringing the Christmas boxes down from the attic this weekend to the garage making it handy to start to decorate. Well, my hubby will carry them down. LOL

Have a great weekend sweet friend.

Ann said...

Both look so cute.
That said,
I can't blame for wanting
them in your home
hope they bring luck and joy
aside from their charming presence.

Heather Lindstrom said...

Sheri dear-just saw your comment on Marcia's blog....count me in with prayers too my friend!
Hugs, Heather

sweetvintageofmine said...

Hi Sheri! You are one of many that have started decorating for Christmas!! Wow, I sense a special attitude for Christmas this year! LOVE happy Christmas people!! Sadly, I won't be doing too much because of the renovations...but that's ok....maybe a little something at the cottage, while it's getting a new facelift? Thank you for the sweet comments on the cottage...can't wait to see all your decorations!! The elfs are darling....Blessings~~~Roxie

Palomasea said...

Thank you so much, dear Sheri, for visiting me!
How wonderful that your son surprises you with a treat every now and then....does he have a favorite cuisine?
I do have my blog friend Dzintra to thank for this fun project...I am trying so many new dishes on a regular basis, I love it. Wish I could actually share it with all of you! :)
Have a wonderful Sunday, sweet friend!
