***Life Just Happens!***The CHRISTMAS Preparations are on!***

Hello to all my sweet Followers and Friends.

Oh I am really so remiss...I did plan to come in and
wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving last week...but once again
my LIFE got in the way.

The Sunday before Thanksgiving I broke off
a huge piece of a tooth...and by Tuesday it was throbbing!!!
Well...I marched over to my dentist because I knew I
needed drugs to get me through till my appointment I had
on Black Friday.  That appointment was originally for a crown prep and
ended up being a Temporary fix for a root canal.
Which I am now seeing an Endodentist for...ugh!
Needless to say my mouth has been bothering
me ever since and I have had to trudge along.
Why at the times when I need to be well, do I seem to
get infections? This is a struggle I have lived with for
so long, that at times it catches up with me and just gets me down.
In this midst of this life happens...
painting, glittering like crazy to finish up my
Christmas goodies...
hosting Thanksgivingfor 10 of us...
a French Door Installation...
Painting the Windows at Sweet Chateau...
Mom and Dad arriving today and
trying to decorating my home for the
Christmas Season.
SEE...I told
Before I start...
 I wanted to share with you a few cute pix of my
sweet companions...Tiger and Chloe!
They certainly bring me JOY in the midst
of struggles.
Tiger looks like a King on his perch!
This is how Chloe looked sitting beside me,
purring her heart out...just before I got up to
go into our office and write this post!
Could'nt resist...its too precious!

Yesterday was a WET day here in the Metro D...
I finally got over to my friends shop in Belleville. 
 She is close to opening and
weve been trying to coordinate painting her
window a number of times.
SO I finally started yesterday, painting on her Shoppe windows.
Here's a sneak peak of what I've done so far.
This is a bay window...she has two of these in front and
I will be painting them both the same on the inside.
Then, weather permitting I will be painting
the outside as well.
I really had a hard time getting a good picture...
As you can see I have my painted my roses,
fluffy hydrageas and white wisteria.
This was quite a challenge as I could not
move my canvas around like I would with an
item I paint that is smaller.
But Victoria is Happy with it
I am happy!

I also thought you might like a peek at my Mantle all
done up for the Holidays!
I am close to being all done...well
all except our Blue Dining Room.
We have a family event on Saturday so I
decided to hold off in there until the following week.
I'm happy with how it turned out...but have
some tweeking I'd like to
some larger ribbon and bows on the greens and
maybe something on my candles.
Stay tuned..more to come after my
parents return home next week!

Until then...thanks for stopping!
I love your comments!

Be Blessed!
