I’m not one to make New Year’s resolutions. Not any more. I used to make them all the time. Talk about setting myself up for failure!!! If it is your custom to make resolutions, then I wish you the best in your endeavors. I found some interesting information concerning New Year’s resolutions at wikipedia […]

Okay, let’s face it. When life hands you a bunch of lemons, you have a choice to make. You can bite right into that tart fruit, make a horrid face and then complain about it. On the other hand, you can squeeze the juice from the lemons, add a bit of water, ice and […]

I want to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas. I hope that the next few days will find you all sharing in the warmth and love of family and friends. Hug your babies. Read them a lovely picture book. Be sure they know the […]

Over the years I have enjoyed buying an assortment of Christmas trees. We enjoy having a decorated tree in all of the rooms in our home. I shared a picture of our big, family tree in an earlier post. Today I’ll show you the others.

This little silver tree is at the command […]

Here are some pictures of my Christmas village. My mom bought me a few pieces to start my own village in the early 1990’s, but before I really had much of my own, my mom passed away and left me hers! I’ve never added to her set, and I doubt that I ever will. I […]

About 20 years ago, Copper and I bought a string of Christmas bell ringers. We hung them proudly on our Christmas tree that year, and thought we’d enjoy many evenings of listening to them play through their repertoire of about 30 Christmas songs. Wrong.

Every time the bell ringers would play, our poor dogs […]

Here we are, just days from Christmas Day. I’ve been slow in sharing with you the long-promised pictures of the decorations inside my home. I have really enjoyed visiting all of you and seeing your lovely decorations for the holiday.

About three or four years ago, I began collecting holiday nutcrackers. Since […]

I don’t remember if it was my mom or my dad that would use that phrase, “woulda, coulda, shoulda”. It was said for all of those instances that would have turned out differently “if”. “It would have been better if….”. “It could have been done if…..”. Not to mention, “I should have…..”. Well, my […]

Sewing my brains out. That’s been my response to the questions, “How are you?”, and “What are you doing?” for the last couple of days. I’m still having fun, but I’m busy, busy, busy!! Homeschooling, laundry, etc., are still getting done as well, so my days are very, very full.

I remembered […]

 ….I am afraid that I have two very silly daughters.  I goofed up last night and accidentally posted a blank post to my blog.  My daughters have had a field day in the comments section of my non-post.  Sometimes I wonder who raised those two!

God bless you as you look well to the ways […]
