Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays...

‘cause no matter how far away you roam
when you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze
for the holidays, you can’t beat home sweet home
I met a man who lives in Tennessee
he was headin’ for Pennsylvania
and some home made pumpkin pie...

Happy Monday everyone!
Well, I managed to dig myself out of the two feet of snow that fell, though my mailbox fell victim to a snow plow I suspect because it got totally munched yesterday and will have to be replaced. The big old lilac bush in the yard didn't fair too well either with the heavy, wet snow breaking off a couple of big branches.
I also made time to go through my paper stash and pull all the Christmas ones into an organized container. In fact, that is how I came across these 'oldies but goodies' from Cosmo Cricket that I had forgotten all about... shameful I know! ;)
But as soon as I found these 'Be Good' papers I knew they were a perfect match for the new Cheeky Cherry Pie that I just got in the mail a couple days ago. I really love the vintage vibe of how this all came together and pretty quickly too, which is always a plus.

Ok, I'm going to cut this short as the internet is giving me fits and I keep getting booted off.
We are in the home stretch to Christmas folks, I hope the spirit of the season makes your week a great one! :)

Amy this is adorable. I have been trying to get the right colors on that pie, and you did it! Yum! I think that the papers are perfect too. Sorry to hear about the mailbox. Talk about IMPORTANT! lol...I was reporting your snowfall to Jerry and he was making fun of me about not knowing Manson existed two years ago. lol....He wants to know do you have Wendy's there? Yes, that's what is important to Jerry. lmbo Have a great day. If I remember you don't have to work so have a great day off. Hugs, Lisa
