I finally finished up today!!! Hooray!  Now I can get on with making my cookies and other things that I do.  Here are some final touches that I did.




I I have a scripture  stenciled around my dining room wall.  That is what you above by my tree on the wall.  Here is another view of my tree with just the lights on.   Rather blurry!


The next pictures are of some cross stitching that I have done.  These were done several years ago, especially when my daughter was a teenager and I would wait on her to come home at night.  Have any of you been there???




This one was difficult to get a picture of because of where I have it hanging.


This is all for now.  Everyone have a great week.

I love how each and everyone of you have decorated your homes.   They are all different with our own personal touches and I really like looking at each and everyone of them.

Everyone have  a great week and don’t eat too many of those great treats we have this time of year.

Christmas blessings to all of you.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!

This is my first time using Live Writer so if there are little quirks here and there, it is because I am learning.

100_0977It’s about time I posted a few of my pictures.  I’m not totally done decorating yet, but I have made some progress.  This is the tree in my kitchen.  I just took and used cookie cutters for ornaments.  I have a lot of old cookie cutters and then a lot of brass ones. They don’t show up very well.

This is of the baker’s rack in my kitchen.  I left all of my pitchers up and added some of my pewter.  Please excuse the television but I didn’t know what to do with it.   100_0962Here is my mantel with some of my santas.  I have a large assortment of them and this doesn’t even scratch the surface with the number that I have.  Truthfully, I have too many.
100_0982The lights are not showing up, but I do have lights in the greenery. 

100_0974These are just a few of my snowmen.  The one sitting in the chair looks like he has his nose up in  the air.    Once again, they are not showing up like they should.

I have some hand carved carolers that I put out every year.  The lady I bought these from no longer does crafting so I feel fortunate to have these.
  I have a window hanging in my living room that looks real, but  it’s not.  I put a wreath on it, but after really looking at this picture, the wreath needs fluffing.100_0964 And last, but definitely not the least, is the most important of all, the Reason for the Season.  The birth of Christ our Lord and Savior.  Without him, we wouldn’t have Christmas.100_0973   While I was home for Thanksgiving, I got a coverlet for my king size bed.  I just love it.  My uncle had it and he and my aunt are getting rid of things and thinking of selling their home.  I bought this from him for a mere fraction of what it was worth.  100_0956 

This is all for today.  Have a great weekend.
Merry Christmas Everyone.

It's Christmas Time

This is a season that we all enjoy so much.  I am working on my home and should have some new pictures posted in a few days.  I don't know where my time is going, but it is going somewhere.  It is so cold here, 20 degrees below normal from what we are suppose to be. 

Hope you are all enjoying your special time this time of year.

I'll be back in a few days with some pictures.

Christmas blessings.
