Sweet November

Happy Monday to you all! I can't beleive that it is November already! This is my absolute favotire time of the year. I love getting ready for the Holidays, decorating, all the food, starting to look for gifts, all the food, finding that perfect (fake) tree and ALL THE FOOD!!
Ok, I love food, what can I say, this time year brings the best goodies ever!

We woke up this morning to Novembers 1st kiss of frost. The sun us shining and everythin
g just sparkles. We are supposed to get a sprinkle of snow later this week which makes me feel all warm and cozy!

November is a time to give thanks as well.
Thanks for family, friends, all my new wonderful bloggy friends, love and all the great gifts that He has given us.

November is also my birthday month! Ooohh......
I will be 37 years young!


It is just a little number but my body feels like that little number is 100!
Just kidding.
Although there are those days!

I hope and pray that this November and beginning of the Holiday Season finds you
happy, peaceful and surrounded by love.

I am very excited to start decorating the house this year.
I can't wait to see all your inspirational ideas and creative craftiness and share some of mine with you! I love hearing about family traditions and incredible stories of love and compassion that seem to show themselves this time of year.

The adorable Layla from The Lettered Cottage just posted this morning about about Christmas Decorating Linky Parties that her and some other wonderful and creative bloggers are doing this year.



I am very excited and I already have some ideas for my mantel this year!

I am not hosting Thanksgiving this year, my brother and his new wonderfully beautiful girlfriend volunteered to take that this year. I love doing Thanksgiving but I was happy to give that to them. This is his new fresh start on life again and if it makes him happy, then I am happy.

Anyway, I hope that you all have a wonderful start to this years sweet November and I can't wait to share the celebrations with you!

I am working on some more little crafts for my upcoming final shows, although, I may have to keep some of them for myself!


Oh and you may notice that I will sneaking on some Christmas music into my playlist!

Hi Michelle,
We had a kiss of frost here in the Chicago west country suburbs, too! You asked about my little tin votive holders. They are actually mini herb pots from Ikea from about 5 years ago; I recently found them at the thrift store. Thanks for LMK about the link parties.. I bet those will be giant ones! Have a good one!
Hugs, Lara

I am so with you. I get so excited this time of year. My girls and I actually went shopping for Christmas crafty stuff yesterday and then spent today crafting. We are going to have to slow down or there won't be anything left to do come December. Of course, then we could slow down and just enjoy the Reason for the season.

Denise said...

I'm also super excited for the holiday linky party!! Can't wait to see some fun stuff! :)
By the way, WHERE did you get your thin tinsel on your galvanized trough???? I have been searching for it! I've only seen it once and it was in a huge gift wrap pack...and I only wanted the tinsel. :( Let me know!
