First White Wednesday of 2011

Okay here we are once again and as usual I am
not ready.
These photos will have to make do for this week's
White Wednesday. You would think I would have
it all together by now , but I don't. Maybe someday I
will but it is highly doubtful! lol.

I thought I would share a few of my Christmas goodies
with you. My daughter gave me the napkins above
and I love them!
{along with a gift certificate to a favorite b and b}
Can't wait to go...probably this summer.

My talented daughter-in-law Melissa has been talking
about doing these types of pictures for quite some time,
but I was still very surprised to open this when we
celebrated Christmas with them this past weekend. She
took all the photos herself and said that they searched
all over for a white frame and just couldn't find one. I will
either leave it as is or have hubby spray it white. Love it!

This was my favorite snack this year for the holidays.
all natural drizzled black and white
kettlecorn
I purchased it at Walmart and have since gone back for
several more bags. {hey...they are small bags. lol.}
Everyone who tasted it said it was the best popcorn
they ever had.
It is called Indiana popcorn {but I first found it in Ohio
and Michigan}
I could eat a whole bag at one sitting if I really tried.

This is one of the gifts that my youngest son and his family

gave me and I have yet to open them.

I think they look pretty this way.

I found this at TJ Maxx on our New Years weekend
jaunt to Indiana. It has a glass insert and it matches my
tall basket just perfect that I got at Home Goods this
past summer. It was a steal at $5.99.

I have been furiously trying to get my house back in
order and it is taking too long. I am trying to clean out
and purge and it is hard when I don't know what to
keep and what to get rid of, but I am slowly getting
it done. How about you? Have you got all your
Christmas put away yet? Sorting...purging...
cleaning?? This happens every year with me after
the holidays. I feel like I just need to downsize and
get this house cleaned out.

Blessings~

Hi Sandi,
You really received some beautiful gifts.

The popcorn looks really good, I bet the bags are tiny so of course, you need more in case you have company!

Don't forget to take photos for us when you go to the B & B, something to really look forward to in the future.

Happy New Year to you!

I had my decorations put away by Jan.1st this year! A new record for me. Just goes to show what I can do when I get a proper amount of rest. Now I am in organizing mode. 'Nesting' I think they call it.

I think this must be an affliction we get after Christmas, this sudden need to clear out things. Resist I say, Resist.

HI Sandi,

Loving the Christmas gifts and the popcorn -so wish I could have some right now!! Yum!! You do have a very talented DIL, wow, nice gift and so thoughtful.

Yep, I'm cleaning and purging too. Been on that streak since I started the Daniel Fast on 1-2-11. Serious dig deep until it hurts purging and I am sooo glad too.

Have fun! xoxo,
Ellen

Your Christmas gifts are wonderful and I'm checking here in California to see if they have Indiana Kettle Corn at WalMart. Popcorn is my favorite snack. I think it would look cute in a glass canister but don't know how long it would last. lol I now have a Christmas shed so I have things put away but I, too, feel the need to clean out.

It is a good thing I did not know about that popcorn at Wal-Mart...I did NOT need to know:)...yes, going through *everything* here too...it's slow-going, though...but I will prevail!
THANKS so much for the sweet words about the wedding...it was so fun and such a blessing...
