Our Christmas Tree + Another great vintage find!

Just wanted to share some pics of our tree and some of my favorite ornaments.  I actually did pretty well because most of these ornaments where bought before I ever even thought of having kids, but only 2 of our ornaments are breakable!  How's that for good luck, huh!

This is from Ian's first Christmas.

Here's our mantle.  Sorry my pics are blurry...I am not liking this new camera at all!  I love that my hubby surprised me with a new one after I broke my other one, but I seriously hate this thing!  (sorry hunny if your reading you!  ; ) I guess I will just have to start saving up for a new one.  Anywho...

I've had this music box since I was a baby

Got a whole village of these little houses for 50 cents a piece at walgreens one year after Christmas!  They are all adorable but I only had room for a couple on the mantle.  I've got a better spot for them where I can put the whole village out, but my little honey badger can reach them, and that probably won't end well, so they will just have to wait till he's a bit older to be on display...

My parents brought each of the kids these snow globes from there trip to Colorado.

Now this is my 1928 ice cream maker!  I found this at an estate sale for $8...I feel in love with it.  I love the color, the rust, everything.  Then, when we got home, I looked it up...turns out this exact model, in this condition sells for $450!  

My hubby was like you sure you don't want to sell it???  I guess I could and use the $$$ to get a new camera, but it's not going anywhere!  I love it so much I literally sat and drank my coffee and looked at it every morning for like three days after we brought it home.  It just makes me smile every time I look at it.  Merry Christmas!
