***MERRY CHRISTMAS*** Sharing my Pink Parlor

I was tweeking my *Parlor* today and
decided to share some pictures with you!
My creche, was given to me many years ago
by my momma.  I love it so and pull
it out most every year.  This year is was
originally in my tree...but my daughter
and hubby nixed
So I created a beautiful scene with my angles...
singing the glories of Christ's birth!
and of course this wonderful passage from Luke
came to mind.

Luke 2:11-14

King James Version (KJV)

 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel
 a multitude of the heavenly host praising God,
 and saying,
Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace, good will toward men.
What a joyous occasion we are priveledged to
celebrate every year.  The birth of the one who
came to Save you and me!

Would you like to see more of my *pink* parlor?
This is MY room. 
I LOVE it so much that
I often will take my tea into this room and sit.

So let the tour begin...
I have given you, hopefully a view from all angles
in this room!

Then of course, I'm the queen of vignettes...

Actually, I don't take a lot of the blingy goodies
out cuz I just LOVE looking at them.
Does anyone else find that they do this?
Since this room is more of a pass through room
and is not used much
I guess I can make up my own rules!

I am making this my last post of the year!
I do thank those of you who follow me
and are such sweetie to post me comments!
You will never KNOW how much your
friendship has meant to me this past year!
Isn't blogging an amazing tool
to connect with others? I sure
think so!

and a
New Year!!!

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,

*****CELEBRATING***** 20 Years of Blessings*****Family precious!

Greetings Friends!!!

Today my hubby and I are celebrating my daughters
20th Birthday!  Hard to believe how quickly
the years have gone by!   To think of what
we would have missed if GOD hadn't chosen our
Michaela to be a part of our family...
 GOD really knew what he was doing as he has
blessed us more than we could ever thank him for.
She is such a spark plug in our life and a joy to all who know her!
I just thinking she is BEAUTIFUL...
not just on the outside,
the inside as well!
So proud of you my girl!

Also, I had the JOY of having my parents visit
us just after the Thanksgiving Holiday.  They went
to South Carolina, where my dad's family is and
stopped by the Big D on their way home.
We so enjoyed their visit and miss them
so much already.  Glad they made it
safely back to the Greater Seattle area!
The above picture is of my daughter and
her 3 2nd Cuz's.  They LOVE her to pieces!

During my parents stay, my hubby and I
also had the privaledge of hosting his brother,
sis-in-law, nephew, his wife and 2 boys and
neice, hubby and their darling son.
We shared a beautiful christmas pagent
at our church Northridge, call the GLORY of Christmas.
Then we came back for spaghetti and family time
to celebrate birthdays.
My daddy's birthday is tomorow.  I
wanted to make sure we didn't forget his 81st!
I sure love this picture!
Don't you think my momma and daddy look young
for 81 and 75? I do!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Blessed!
