Christmas Presents and a Winter Vignette

I took down all of our Christmas decorations on Friday. :( Our house looked incredibly bare, so I quickly put together a wintery vignette that will be staying up until I put together my Valentine's vignette for my guest post over at Uncommon at the end of this month! Before I share my winter decor, I first want to show you all the fun things I got for Christmas!

A sewing machine, printer block tray, mercury glass lamp, and a tool to pick up canning jars!

I can't wait to hang this outside!

And one of my favorite gifts - a new Nikon DSLR camera!!!!!

And now for my winter vignette:


 







I've been trying to shoot in manual as much as possible to learn to use my camera, so all you camera pros out there - how are my pictures looking?

I'm linking to the parties listed HERE and to:

  4. Your winter vignette looks great! So many interesting elements. And congrats on the new camera! I bought my sister's old Canon Rebel when she upgraded and I really need to learn more about it. I'm still using my pocket Nikon for my blog.

  20. Your vignette is lovely. I'm no photographer, but I know how difficult it is to take photos on the manual setting, so I think they look really great.
