Festive Days are Here

Good Morning my lovely blogging friends! Time is going so quickly and the days are so full, 'tis the season they say! We have the white stuff in Vermont and have had it on the ground since Thanksgiving! It is so pretty, but it was a bit too early for me, now we will have winter until April, oh dear, let's not think about that now!  Christmas is coming, I'm all bought, wrapped, decorated and ready for family. I do need to bake and cook, but first a trip to Arizona to visit a son and daughter-in-law who can't make it for the holidays. So off we will go, hopefully to some warmer weather and fun.

Now time for Christmas cheer in "our home"

                                         Christmas bunting up on the Kitchen window

                                                   Advent calendar opened everyday, always a treat

                         New outside Holiday slate for side door, bought at a local Artisan shop

Family room mantel, I love lights, really make things festive

                                                                     A little closer

                                                    Homemade holiday wreath for indoors

                                                    Ominous sky's and weather here in Vermont

                                            "Our Tree" all in its glory and smelling delightful

                                       Mini Norfolk pine tree, it has grown since last year!!!

           Living room mantel, the faithful nutcrackers all in a row, descending of course

                                                       Another lovely hibiscus bloom

 My bunnies all set for Santa and best of friends! Thanks to lovely Mia and Vivienne

Well, my lovelies, that's my story and I'm wishing you all a wonderful holiday season in advance! This is just in case life gets so busy I can't wish you Merry Christmas as it gets closer! I cherish all of you and am so happy I have this blog. It is an honor to have met all of you kind, sweet, creative and caring friends. I would love to meet so many of you and who knows, maybe it could happen someday. One never knows!  In the meantime, enjoy the holidays and be well!


   Mother Nature, confused I think......6 degrees outside, cloudy and a rainbow!  ???  !

Happy December

How can it be??? December 1st and Thanksgiving over, although I am barely recovered. Oh it was fun, but lots of shopping, cooking, preparing, bed making, laundry BUT so worth it! And I would do it again in a second. Now Advent calendars have been opened "1st" and cards purchased, decorating to do, packages to buy, wrapping to be done and things to be posted. December is a busy month, but I do try to enjoy it as much as possible. We are going to Arizona mid December to see a son and his wife. That will certainly be a nice break and so exciting too. Back for Christmas and then shhhhhh, my birthday and It's a BIG ONE! Yikes.......

Here are some pics of Thanksgiving, I wasn't really into photos as much this year BUT I will share what I have

                                          Place settings, Abby (8) made turkey napkin folds!!

                                                                      Turkey Feast

                                        Adding my hibiscus photo, oh how I love this plant!

I made these two hamsters for the girls as a Thanksgiving treat and sewed a cape for them!!! They did love them : )

Well, that's all folks! Smile lots, enjoy, BE KIND AND GRATEFUL. Thanks for visiting, I'm thankful for all of you!
