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.

Maxine, your tree looks awesome! And I adore your cross stitcheries! They are truly works of art!
I also love the first photo with the candle shelf. It looks so festive, yet simple~~~my favortie type of decor!
I have a set of 3 of those yellow ware bowls with the pie crust rims. I found each one at a different place and at a different time. I just love them. They started my love affair with mixing bowls! LOL!
Have a great week!

Hi Maxine!....I enjoyed your decorating pics! Everything looks wonderful!

Yes I have definately been there with a teenager so I know how that is!

I think I've finally finished my tweaking and will hopefully get some pics up today or tomorrow.

Merry Christmas!

I love the scripture stenciled around the room - was it terribly difficult to do? I also love the yelloware bowl.. I have seen one at the antique store for $25 is that a good price?

Hi Maxine~
What beautiful cross stiching you've done. I can't do cross stich as my eye sight is so terrible right now. I need glasses very bad but am waiting until after the holidays to make an appointment with the optomatrist.
The scripture around the room as a border is a great idea and I love the verse you chose. I'm thinking of doing that in one of our rooms now. Thanks for sharing!
Hugs & blessings to you dear friend~ Birgit
