Christmas Love


I am so graced to have such a large loving family.  With that comes loss, we have lost 2 Uncles, 1 Aunt and 1 cousin this year.  So many memories of fun times we shared.  But with God's gift, His Son we know that heaven awaits.


The gift of live ever lasting.  I am so thankful for my blogging friends.  I received 2 sweet packages this week.  The first was a big box from my swap buddy Linda @Country Pickin's


A fluffy Santa ...Ho, Ho, Ho.  A wonderfully stiched Americana sign (Which by the way is awesome)



I love how this fits my style like a glove!  Linda is just wonderful.


This sweet basket and cardinal were also in the box.  I am very lucky.  It made my day.  Thanks Amy from Bumble Bee Lane for coordinating all these fun swaps.


My next gift came from Becky Shander "Wish Upon a Star" Necklace.  I loved it but my heart knew I would have to pass it forward to a sweet family with a 17 year old girl.  At work we sponsered a family.  I just knew Becky would love to have someone share her talent at Christmas, so I gifted it with a special book and other presents.  I loved this necklace.  Thank you Becky.DSC00606
And so sweet friends, I hope your Christmas is Magical.
Love and Kisses,

Let It Snow

 My grandsons love Frozen!  I wanted to create a winter scene to honor their love.  I received this cut chalkboard sign last year.  It set the stage for my sweet boys.
The mason jar has a snow man in snow with a candle on top.  
The skates "echo" the fun the girls in the movie had at the end celebrating their friendship and love
I took my display case and lined it with snowflake lights and added an old base and white tree.  Joy To The World!



Let it Snow!

Small Space Joyful Decorating

I took my resturant white ironstone plates and put my favorite saying for Christmas.  Using Scrabble tiles is a fun and quick Christmas Project.
In our rental the bedroom is one the calming spots to be.  The paint on the walls is a soft green and compliments my white.

I was able to hang my favorite components from our house.  Since we need to stay here thru the holidays I wanted my lovelys near me!



This sweet bench was my great grandmothers.  My parents put the finishing touches on many years ago with changing the seat cover.  In the chair is a beautiful bag I won a few years ago from.  Also, a little inspiration from Anne Slone.  The dresser is dressed with a vintage mantle clock, a slate I won that is just beautiful and a sweet milk glass lamp.  Of course, my sweet cow painting.
This sweet Mary and baby Jesus is a find from my favorite shop The Pink House.  I have a collection of Mary's but none with her holding baby Jesus.
In the corner is my collection of suitcases with my racing boat!  My grandson's love that Santa is cruising over to our house.
Merry Christmas All!  Joining some very creative ladies, Di
