I love seeing it peeking through this mirror.

We have another Christmas celebration this weekend
so I maybe MIA for a few days. I will be back next
week with some new finds for my booth...I hope.

I pray your new year will be as blessed for all of you
as much as you have blessed my life this past year.
I never thought the blogging world would be so

Here's to a new year with amazing new ideas and
wonderful new creations!

Sleeping beauty...

...came for a visit yesterday along with the rest
of her family. Such a cutie pie!

This outfit was one of her Christmas gift's from us,
but we gave it to her last week because we were
afraid it wouldn't fit her long.
Newborn size...fits her perfect now.

Sweet Little Ms. Annika.
We had a fun time together.

Annika sure loves her daddy (our son...over 6 feet tall!)

Mommy and baby...sweet sweet Christmas day.

Wishing you...

...a *cozy* Christmas!

My beautiful new quilted seranelle luxury throw
that is as soft as cotton...on top of my new white
down comforter.

I am definitely having a cozy Christmas.
Thank you Santa. :)

As we all celebrate Christmas today don't forget the
reason for the Jesus born to set us free! Hugs~

Peaceful White Wednesday

I am wishing and praying for a peaceful holiday for all
my bloggy friends and all my *not* bloggy friends too!
This time of year can get very stressful and it can sure
get overwhelming at times. Just when I think I can't
take anymore...I feel so guilty hearing of something
far worse than my problems.
For instance someone's house burning down just after they
finished wrapping the last Chritsmas gift and they didn't
even have time to get their shoes on. Thank God they are
safe, but wow...puts it all in perspective don't ya think?

{A cheese ball set that I made over}
Doesn't it look much better this way?

Doesn't this just scream *peaceful setting*...
My bff's potting shed. Isn't it so neat?? I just love it. She has impeccable taste and her place is always so inviting! I wish now that I had walked
around the side of it and took a picture of her
chicken roost that her husband made her. I love it!

The fence and arbor that her hubby built for her.

I could live in this shed! I mean I truly could! lol.

You see this at the entrance to her garage. Another beautiful peaceful setting.

Praying for His peace to fill your heart this Christmas season.

A little more Christmas...

We went to another Christmas program last night that
sweet gd Annika was in. Thankfully this time she did not
stick out her tongue. lol. We stopped by their house
afterwards and spent some time our son and his family.
I threatened to hide that adorable little baby in my
leather briefcase and bring her on home with me,
but I would not have made it past the front door. lol.

A little candle glow to start out your week

I made these star ornaments last year and I still
love them. I embellished them with clear glass glitter
and they just sparkle and shine.

I found all three of these candleholders at the Goodwill last week. I love most anything mercury glass style so it didn't take me long to scoop up these two. {50 cents each and they are quite large}

Glittery wreath ornies that I found at Kohls.

This basket hangs on the inside of my kitchen door.

A glimpse of my bedroom...

Just perfect for *dreaming*.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. You do realize
that Christmas is Saturday right?? :) My how the time has
flown once again this year. I just can't figure out where it went!

A simple Christmas package and a serenade

My bff and I had a fun day out today and I put together
a simple gift bag for her before I headed out the door.

I used a Pottery Barn bag , but wanted to cover up the
words so I grabbed some tea stained paper doilies for each
side and quickly glued them on.

Then I rubber stamped some pretty images on

I added some ribbon,string and tissue paper and called it done.

Very simple and easy yet pleasing to the eye.

This young lady and her siblings serenaded us at
Seasons Coffee and Bistro in Bryan, Ohio while we
were eating lunch and it was just beautiful! I was told
that they are all homeschooled and it was very obvious
that they are all very talented.
{There were four violinists playing along with the harpist}
I love harp and violin music and was just thrilled
to hear them.

My Entryway decor

When you walk in my back door this is what you will
see on my vintage, chippy white vanity.
{well kinda...I have since taken out some of the vintage
frogs and the book and added vintage song pages}

Notice the tall angel made from a spindle and
other wooden pieces? I have had it for several
years and am thinking of painting it...are
you ready for this...WHITE! lol.

Vintage glittery saxaphone that I purchased up at
the antique mall where I have my booth. They have GOBS of vintage ornaments at that place.

I wish I had gotten a better shot of this because this
picture is beautiful! Water stained, but still

This is what I did on Wednesday night. Hubby took
this picture and it is horrible quality, but I had to
show you anyways. I don't know what he did because
the couch is GREEN and it looks purple here along
with part of my hair!
Ainsley Paige is just a joy to cuddle with! Have a beautiful Friday! Blessings~
