Merry Christmas From Our House
to Your House!

Morning Sweet Friends,
*
Hope you are all wrapping everything
up so you can just enjoy the rest of your
day and tomorrow.  I have a few small
things left to do,  nothing earth shattering.

We are having dinner tonight with Scott and Dee
 and a few of their friends and my sister-in-law,
so we are looking forward to it.  Dee gets off at
 noon and should be over shortly thereafter,  and
Scott will get off hopefully by 3:00,  and hubby is
 working at home today and will be off at noon as well.

Guess I had better get on withThankful Thursday

*
I will show you a few more tablescapes ideas,
this one is very easy yet elegant!


*
All you need is a platter and Christmas balls
and  candle holders.  I was gonna use
smaller ones that I had,  but then I
saw an arrangement on the BH&G email
that had stemmed custard dishes with candles,
and remembered I had bought these glasses
of a ladies brunch I had once and I had used
2 of the glasses as candleholders then, as well.
*


*
I was just playing here on my kitchen table
cause the other table is set,  so I don't have
a full table shots of any of these.
*

*

I remembered I had these stars leftover from 
the 4th of July and they were the perfect
shade of red.  I liked that lil extra bling.
*

*
Add a candy cane to the glass or plate

*
Well, that is it for today! Hope I got your
creative juices flowing!
*
As you are going about your day
remember to count your blessings
not the things on your list!!  lol
*
Have a Merry Merry Christmas
Sweet Friends!

Love , Peace and Joy to you and yours,

Hi Nellie,

Merry Christmas to you and your sweet family. I have had zero time for reading and commenting the past many days but I have thought of you often and appreciated your comments so much.

It sounds like things are much better in the health department for you and for that I am grateful.

Love you so much and wishing you a very wonderful celebration!

Hugs,

Happy Sunday Morning to You Sweet Friends, And Happy Spring!! She has finally officially arrived. I decided to try a new meme today,  it is called  "Shadow Shot Sunday". I am going to combine it with my Sunday verse   for  the day  which I haven't done for  awhile.  Thought it would  work great  together.

The header photo is of my bathroom  window,  very early  in the morning,  just as day is breaking. You will see the sun coming up more and more. I only wish the camera could have captured the way the light was dancing on the window pane, truly a beauty to behold! I took these at different stages as you can probably tell from the amount of light coming in the window, and now onto the valance. It was truly fun and fascinating to watch!

So on with my Thankfuls...... #1 Thankful for a nice time with our  Son  and Lil darling,  He was sweet to bring dinner for all of us, and then we played some wii and a card game.  A Fun Surprise..... especially
