Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends,

So how are you today??? Hope 
you are staying warm in those
areas of the country that are in
the arctic blast areas.

We have had colder temps here
in Florida too, but nothing close 
to what is going on way up North.
 We are actually enjoying it as it
 is a nice change for us.

Not a lot going on here other than
doing some decluttering in our
bedroom, and the normal every
day cleaning, and enjoying our
new Winter look in the house,
and burning lots of candles.  lol

So on with the most viewed

Thankful Thursday January 17, 2019, Fun and Quick Winter Table

In God we make our boast all day long, 
and we will praise your name forever.
Psalm 44:8 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

So how has your week been?? 

Good?  Busy?  A little warm?
 a Little chilly?  Ours has been
all of that.....lol

The first part of the week I was 
still getting the house back together
 so finally finished on Tuesday, yeah!!

Spent some time making some cards
 as well, and then our typical Wed. 
and Thursday.

Pictures today were actually a 
quick Christmas eve table, but 
could definitely be a Winter
table as well.....

So on with my Thankfuls

Thankful to have our house back
 in order, with fun wintry touches, 
(and no more red or Christmas 
green) lol
Now we are just enjoying the
new look................

#2 and 3
Thankful for another good Sunday
at church and fun time out to 
lunch with our friends.

Thankful for the sweet and very
unexpected gift of them treating
us to lunch.

Thankful for 3 fun projects I
did this week, that I saw in my
 new magazine, I wrote about 
last week in my thankful post. 
 The only cost was .89 cents 
for a piece of  wood look
scrapbooking paper..........  
Will show you soon!

Thankful that we have made a
flexible schedule for getting things
things done, and it seems to be
working well.

Thankful that we have set aside
time every week to work on our
retirement business.

Thankful that I was able to make
3 new cards this week.

Thankful to hear that the son
of a friend of ours ran into
someone from our church that
he didn't even know and they
were able to spend some much
 needed time together. A divine
appointment for sure.

Thankful that someone I know
 took the first step in actually 
trying to solve a problem that
 has existed for years rather than 
just being irritated or aggravated
 by it. This was a huge emotional
 step and I am so proud of them.

Thankful that our single parent
friend and her family, who went 
to Italy to visit her brother and
his family, over the Christmas
Holidays had a fantastic time and
 they all came back looking so
 rested and relaxed.  Her brother
loved her fiancee' and was so
pleased for the love that he saw
he has for her and her children.
That was just another reassurance
for her. We are so happy for her.
Think they will be getting 
married this June.

Thankful that hubby went for
his annual physical this week
 and got a great report.  Always
so good to hear that.

Thankful for a fun night out
having dinner with our daughter-
in- love and lil darling, as our son
is away for work right now.

Well, there you have it folks.

Thanks for stopping in.....

Have a fantastic Friday and

Love, Hugs, and
Mid- January Blessings,

Hello Sweet Friends,

How this finds you doing well.

I would imagine you are in the
process of taking down or have
 already taken down and packed
away your Christmas decorations 
by now and are now are redecor-
ating or putting your home back
 together after the Christmas

I have been doing the latter,
since last week, and am just about
 finished, so since I have had no 
time to take pics yet, thought a
look back at the Most viewed
posts from last year would get 
me through until I have time
to deal with pictures. lol

So here is a lil blast from
 the past, that I hope you will

I am just doing Jan. to June 
today and will do July thru
 December next Tuesday, 
Lord willing!

Because of the LORD’s great love

 They are new every morning; 

great is your faithfulness.

Thankful Thursday January 10, 2019, Christmas Brunch table

I will give thanks to you, Lord
with all my heart; I will tell of 
all your wonderful deeds.
Psalm 9:1 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

If I were a betting woman,  which
I am not,  I would bet that you are
having cold weather where most
of you are............and I am happy
to report we are having a few
cold days here.  Yippee!! I am
so enjoying it.....

We are still in process of getting
our home back to normal.
Finished the family room then
took a break Wed. and Thurs.
since those are our days with
lil darling, so will start back
up again today. would love to
 finish by the end of the week-
end at least, so guess we'll see.
Hoping and praying for lots
of creativity today....

Pictures today are from our
Christmas Brunch table that
was done with paper goods
and real flatware, cups and 
glasses. I love that we can
make pretty tables no matter
how we do it.

So on with my Thankfuls.

Thankful for just being able to 
rest all day last Friday, I did a
few things but nothing that I
just had to get done, which is
nice cause after 3 days of busy
I was worn out, and that one day 
was positively rejuvenating

Thankful for a nice long con-
versation with my daughter on
 Friday as well.  She has been
a busy girl training her new
puppy Bentley.  He is just
the cutest, but he is in that
teething stage and chewing
and biting them...so they are
working on that as well as
outside potty training.  He is
doing pretty well with that
and sleeping all night.  He
is a pretty smart lil pup it

Thankful that hubby fixed the 
lighting in my etagere' in the
living room, it had flourescent
lights and one side went out
and he replaced both sides
 with LED lights and it is so
 bright and white and looks
Mr. Fix it, My Hero!!

Thankful for a really fun
lunch out with our friends
and their Dad on Sunday.

Thankful for a lovely
croissant strawberry dish
that came with bacon and
eggs at Perkins, it was really
 yummy and something

Thankful we got all our
Christmas stuff down and
packed away on Monday.
It usually took 2-3 days
when I did most of the in-
door stuff myself, and that
 didn't include taking down
 the Christmas tree (just re-
moving the ornaments) and 
packing it and the outdoor
 lights, as hubby has always 
done that part, but we got 
all the indoor and outdoor 
stuff done in one day.
Very nice to have the time
and extra help from hubby
now to do things quicker.
and Very Thankful for
his willingness to help.

Thankful that I can move
on with getting the house
put back together. One
room down 3 to go.  lol

Thankful for 2 new food
discoveries this week, one is
Del Monte canned diced
Mangoes, they are so fresh
tasting and delicious, and
Mama's Chicken soup from
Carrabas, never had their
soup but it was a cold night
so tried it, tastes just like
home made.

Thankful for the Lord's
 protection as I came close
to falling several times this
week, but somehow didn't.

Thankful that our first week
back to home schooling went
very well.  Think lil darling
has actually missed it......
especially being at school 
and seeing her lil friends.
She was very happy and chatty
when we picked her up from
 school on Thursday.

Thankful for a new magazine
called "Entertain and Celebrate
Winter" formerly called "Winter
Cottage Journal", I think! 
 Not sure why they changed it.....
but I was delighted with some of
their quick and easy projects that
 were so cute, which is perfect as
I am redecorating right now.

#12Thankful for a fun night
out window shopping and
having dinner out.  Some
thing we both look for-
ward to......


Well, here's to another week
at Cozy Place.....

Thanks for dropping by, and
hope you have a delightful
Friday and weekend.

Love, Hugs, and
Chilly Winter Blessings,

Christmas Dinner Table 2018

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you with your home all
 back together or somewhere in the
 process at least.

That is us....we took down all our 
Christmas stuff yesterday and packed 
it all away, so today we will begin 
the process of redecorating for 
Winter....altho we don't know how
 much Winter weather we will get
 I do enjoy decorating for the season.

Know it is late to be showing Christmas
things but I found pics of  3 of our 
Christmas tables on my camera last
night... I had forgotten all about, so 
will post them this week anyway.....
so I can have a record and in case 
some of  you might want to pin 
something for next year........

Love this white ceramic Christmas tree 
I purchased many years ago at Cracker
Barrel, as she has come in handy many
times as a table decoration.  I can plug
her in or take the plug out and add a
candle underneath, which is real handy
when I use her in a centerpiece

I decided to pair my Christmas
dishes with my shabby chic
dishes this year. I think my
Shabby chic dishes look like
a wreath, if you can see the
embellishments on the edges.

My daughter gave me the lovely
 platter that the tree is sitting on 
for Mother's day this year.  

See the lil white and gold gift
 on the corner, it just plugs into
the platter. It was made by Nora
Fleming and it has all sorts of 
other lil embellishments for 
 holidays and other occasions, 
and other serve ware pieces
as well. I thought it was a
really unique idea cause it
keeps you from having to have
so many different platters.

She gave me a Santa Hat for
 Christmas this year, looks so
cute on there.

 This unique dishware was 
made by Nora Flemming,
and if you want, you can
check it out ..... Click here
or type it in for yourself.

Disclaimer:  I get no profits/
benefits of any kind for sharing
 this; Just sharing it cause I think
it is a neat gift, and I really
like mine.
we just happened to see
this unique idea in a gift shop
 when we are out shopping in
 Charleston in the Spring 
last year.

I rarely use the cups and saucers as we
like to use mugs, but this whole set of
Christmas dishes used to belong to my
late Mother-in-law and so it came with
the cups and saucers so decided to use
them as candle holders this year.

Also used clear glass ones with real
cranberries for candle holders as well.

I found these lil hor'derve picks a few 
years back by accident,  so thought 
they would make the napkins look
 more like candles.

lil darlings place with a salad and
bread plate.  Should have made that 
candle napkin smaller, it would
have looked much better!  lol

Used the Christmas goblets
that go with the sets.  They
are clear with Christmas trees
on the front that match the
plates....if you have never
seen them.

Also used the light brown 
tablecloth as there is brown in 
the dishes as well.

Over Views

With Posterized affect

I always like to add some
candy, so the Andes mints 
were the perfect shade
of green......

With Lighting affect

Christmas balls, greenery and faux 
snow always come in handy for
 many things when decorating
 at Christmas time.

Glad you came by............

and thanks for the visit, and
hope your New Year is going

Scripture Sunday

Happy Sunday and Happy 3 Kings Day,
Sweet Friends,

Here is today's verses.

The Magi visit the Messiah

 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem

in Judea, during the time of King Herod,

Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 
 and asked, “Where is the one who has 

been born king of the Jews?

We saw his star when it rose and

 have come to worship him.” 

When King Herod heard this he was

disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 

 When he had called together all the 
people’s chief priests and teachers of
 the law,he asked them where the 
Messiah was to be born. 
 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied,
“for this is what the prophet has written: 
 “ ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of 
Judah, are by no means least among
the rulers of Judah; for out of you will
 come ruler who will shepherd 
my people Israel.’ ”

 Then Herod called the Magi secretly 
and found out from them the exact 
time the star had appeared. 

 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, 
“Go and search carefully for the child.
 As soon as you find him, report to me,
so that I too may go and worship him.” 

After they had heard the king, they 
went on their way, and the star they
 had seen when it rose went ahead
of them until it stopped over the place
where the child was. 

 When they saw the star, they were 
overjoyed. On coming to the house,
 they saw the child with his mother Mary,
and they bowed down and worshiped him.
 Then they opened their treasures and
presented him with gifts of gold,
 frankincense and myrrh. 

 And having been warned in a dream
 not to go back to Herod, they returned
 to their country by another route.

Matthew 2:1-12 NIV

Have a remembering and 

Blessed Sunday,

Hugs, Nellie
