Hi Sweet Friends!

How are you all doing?
Are you ready yet for Christmas?

I have been sick with a cold for the
past week.  Yesterday I finally turned a corner.
I guess when that happens you have to *let go*
of everything you thought you were gonna
do and just be happy with things as they are.
I can honestly say that I did not decorated as much as I usually
do.  But you know what? It really is okay.
On to the sharring...
I do a more traditional themed of reds and golds
in my family living and kitchen areas...
With my *parlor* and *entry* this year
done up in whites and pinks.

I showed a picture last week of my Mantel...well
I did end up over at Hobby Lobby and got some
GREAT ribbon.  I made a few bows to add to my
greenery and gold bows for the red candles.
I am really satisfied with how this all came together.

Our tree was actually up for 2 weeks but because
of family being here, and both hubs and
I being sick...well finally on Monday we
pulled out the ornies and got er done.
This was how THEY wanted it to look...
me...well I'd have added more ribbon and
filler...but you know what...I would rather
they be happy with it..and they were.

Pictures just dont do it justice!!!
We have red and gold balls all throughout
with a mix n match of other
shiney really is so pretty
at night with very little light in the room.
My hubby LOVEs, yes LOVEs Christmas
time and MUST have to tree close so
he can see it.  Its just his

I am showing you a couple of vingettes below that
are in my family room.

PINK Entry!

This is my 4ft White Christmas tree that hubby
got me a few years back.  I had been setting it
up on a table in the living room but this
year decided to add it to the table in my entry.
I tried to turn this into a pretty, winter wonderland.

I added some of my sweet lil Snowmen
that I collect to this area as they fit in sooooo

Well, that's pretty much what I am going to
share with ya today.
I do have more displays and areas that I have done
but I need to get myself a shower
and off to paint again today...
I'm going over and finishing up my
friends Store window for her!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hope you are enjoying this wonderful time of the year.
Please don't for get...

Be Blessed,
