bring me a mix of emotions!
How about "YOU"?
Thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I enjoy for Christmas.
First is my Christmas tree...... purchased a few years back!
I Love how it looks natural or decorated. This year I will need to have a few strands of lights fixed before I dress it up.
Next, is this Lovely light up town my husband purchased for one of my December Birthdays past! It always makes me smile as ponder its twinkling winter scene.
Well then, I will pick a few more things that tug at my emotions and I will return to share them, if you would like to join me again perhaps? See "YOU" soon! ; )
Trick or Treat.....
October is here!!!! I will be joining my dear friend Vanessa Valencia at A Fanciful Twist and some of her lovely guests for A Halloween Tea!
Won't you swing by and have a BOOtiful time?
Yup, I need to post!
So here is SOME WISE WORDS on WEDNESDAY!
I wish I had inspiration like I wish I could win the lottery today!
Well, you know, I can't win if I don't play!!!
Soooo, I better just start writing HUH!
Thing is, no ticket and no words! Yikes!!!
I can't think about this now. I will think about this later, for
after all ... Tomorrow is another day! ; ) ( Picture borrowed from Google)
Made some BANANA BREAD with some over ripe UHHH BANANAS!!!
Used my phone's camera because my camera wasn't available at that time. I believe they turned out NICE! I used my Mom's recipe that always comes out YUMMO and brings that home feeling! I've been thinking a lot about my upcoming trip to visit my MOM in a few more days and I cant wait.
Hope your having a summer FULL of whatever makes you HAPPY and feeling like HOME! Blessings! <3
Friday and school is OUTTT!
This bunch of students are HAPPYYY!
I am feeling Relieved for some VACATIONNN!
We are looking forward for some Relaxation and us TIMEEE!
Summertime, summertime, sum sum summertime, YIPPEEE!!!
Well, I finally got the picture I wanted to present for my entry into the Glitter and a Movie featuring Steel Magnolias. I never realized how difficult it could be to photograph the subject. I want to thank my wonderful daughter who helped me to get the best antique look I had envisioned in my mind. WE DID IT! PHEW!!!
My latest fetish is collecting empty jars, such as this Jelly jar above. It has these lovely lines up and down it which captivated me to create with it!
I want to shout out to all the moms out in bloggy land! "Happy Mothers Day!"
I'm Counting my 3 blessings and enjoying the weekend with all 3 at home this weekend! I HOPE you enjoy All your BLESSINGS!!! ; )
I just wanted to share some Joyful Blessings I spotted from my front and back yard this week!
These things I treasure dearly. This is the first year I have spotted hummingbirds nesting in our large Ash tree.The nest is so tiny!!! It amazes me how two let alone one bird could fit inside such a small space. I'm thinking they must be almost to the point where they will be ready to leave. The Momma bird flew right up to my face yesterday as I sat nearby to watch. I promptly walked away to give her back her privacy. This tree is so special to me because my dear late Grandpa Rod helped my husband plant it at least 17years ago. As our temperatures are already in the 80's to 90's and May is upon us to kick off our summer swelters, the tall green and lush branches grace us with much desired shade.
Every year I look forward to the Mexican primrose blooming in the front! I just can't help but smile looking at these pretty pink lovelies. ; )
I like how this metal turquoise cross looked among the greenery and cheerful pink petals.
I wanted to share this beautiful
giveaway I won from a Dear friend, Marcia at The Shop Around the Corner!
This graceful pink dress tag is decorated with a diamond floral ribbon
belt and is sprinkled with pearls down its flowing bodice. The tag is
called " LOVELY" and I just "Swooned" over just how Lovely it is in
person!!! I decided to place LOVELY amongst my spring decor. I am so
Happy to see spring blooming once again! I know some of you are still
waiting for signs of spring, I promise it is on it's way!
wanted to thank Marcia who inspired me to creatively mod podge some
eggs for Easter! I perused Pinterest to see what others were crafting
with eggs and I came up with this idea! All supplies I used can easily
be found at your local craft store, (Michaels has great bargains in my
opinion) and the plastic eggs I purchased at the 99c store.
out I layered white napkins to mask some of the colored eggs and then I
applied cut sections of the cupcake papers. I also crumpled the cupcake
paper before I cut them into smaller sections to make the paper less
I have to advise to work in sections and dry sections at a
time so your fingers are less likely to stick to your project. I used
the matte mod podge on my eggs. I might try to make a few with some of
the gloss mod podge if I get out to purchase some before Easter is
All in all it was relaxing and a fun project that I would
recommend for anyone, even the kids if they like to be crafty creative!
I wanted to share this lovely necklace I found at this FUN resale shop that opened up here in Phoenix called TurnStyle. They sell furniture, house goods, clothing and accessories of all kinds! I love the colors in the beads and I can even loop it around my wrist and wear it as a bracelet if I want to. Also, I found this gorgeous blue lacey tank for the summer and thought that they complemented each other. I already have the perfect earrings to go with it!. So you can surmise that my mind is dreaming of summer days and going on vacation! You Too?
Enjoy your week and Happy Valentines Day to ALL!<3<3<3
Here's some good vibes from Sir Paul McCartney and Wings! ......
Nowhere to go but up!
Hope you had a great week! Now onto the next.
Leaving you with some words to take along with you!
So FAITH, HOPE, LOVE remain, these three;
but the greatest of these is LOVE!
1 Cor 13:13
I'm Feeling the LOVE!!!
Sooo here it is a week and a few days later. Would you LOOK At THAT : )
I do have HIGH HOPES and we may be seeing RED by Valentines Week!
I found this lovely pot at TJ Maxx, and its kind of Perfect, Really!
Well, it's good the weekend is here once again.
There is rain in the forecast. I am glad, we really need it here in AZ!
Set a vignette for Valentines day on my table here and thought we might feast on some of this while we enjoy these next couple of days! <3
