Hello my friends! I hope that you are all having a wonderful start to this week! Some of you are busy preparing for Thanksgiving and hopefully you are all able to spend some time with loved ones!
I just wanted to thank you again for all your support and comments of friendship and inspiration! I am so happy to have started blogging and even happier that I have met all of you!!
I truly wish I could get everyone of you something!
I am happy to announce that the winner of my "A BIG
THANK YOU" giveaway is
Shari does custom blog designs and is so talented! Her blog is full of beautiful inspirations!
Just send me an email with your address and I will get that to you!
I am finished decorating my Dining area/kitchen!
I went with simple, natural and soft colors with pops of red here and there!
I showed you some of my kitchen decor here, with my red skates and trees!
My beautiful scale that my wonderful friend Tracy gave to me is now decorated with evergreens, white tipped pine cones and sparkly white pine cones!
A larger view of my little vignette from here.
I just added some evergreen branches to my hutch along with a wreath and a few of my favorites from Christmas's past.
(I think that I need a bigger wreath)
The little thing in front of the picture is actually a small frame that holds three pictures. I painted it black, put some coffee filters in and then put small glass votives on top of those to add a little texture!
I purchased the lace table runner a long time ago and haven't used it until now!
Also, today is my birthday, 37 years young!
I have to say that in those years I have survived my big brother tormenting me, school, many jobs, childbirth, surgeries including two heart attacks and open heart, trying to raise two wonderful children, 14 years of marriage (and still going strong) and of course all the wonderful things that life throws at me on a day to day basis!
nothing has prepared me for
Actually it is the third one that I have found this year (yes I am counting).
Might have to go buy a little box-o-color!!!
