Sunday with the family

Today is the last day of Thanksgiving Vacation.  Back to the real job tomorrow.  I love this time at home with my husband and kids, even though the kids are a Seniors, one in High School and one in College; they still love to be around ole mom and dad.  I'm very blessed.  So between all the things they had going on with friends and school they still had time to go and pick out the tree and help decorate the house.  I will miss them when they are gone doing their own thing, but for now I will enjoy every minute and be thankful.

I was also delighted to see that I sold a Tree Skirt off Etsy last night.   Great way to start the day.

Have a wonderful day everyone,

Decorating time is here!

Early to rise again today, everyone is still sleeping.  Enjoy a cup of coffee (or two) before opening the attic and getting Christmas decorations down.  I have high hopes of getting all decorated by the end of day tomorrow.  Then I can work on the outside of the house and plant some red flowers and add a few lights here and there.  I just love this time of year. 

Wishing everyone a blessed day, and hope you are doing things you love.

The day after Thanksgiving means getting the house ready for Christmas Decorating.  No black Friday shopping here.  I don't enjoy the stress of all that mess, and there really isn't anything that I need to purchase in the craziness.   I enjoy a nice day at home with my family and then later on in the weekend go shopping with my daughter in Naples and out for a nice lunch together. 

So I am signing off for today to transition my home from fall to Christmas.  I hope everyone has a blessed day doing what ever makes you happy.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from Florida.  What a beautiful day the lord has made, let us rejoice.  It will be strangely different today, as our family is missing a member this year.  My grandmother went on her Heavenly journey several months ago to join my grandfather.  It seems every time our family gets together (and there are a lot of us), I'm always waiting for grandma and grandpa to show up.  I am thankful that I have been so fortunate to have my grandparents in my life all the way to my adult life and in my kid's life.

Today we will go to mom and dad's house to celebrate.  It's also mom's Birthday!  Happy Birthday to my mother and best friend.

2011 Christmas Ornaments

Here a just a few of my 2011 Hand painted Christmas Ornaments.  I sold several the other night when I was invited to bring my items to a Sorority fundraiser gathering.  Along with a couple other guests, one selling "Thirty One" and the other selling "Park Lane Jewelry".  What a good grouping of items to choose from.
We had more fun just visiting and laughing.  There's nothing quite like getting together with good people and just relaxing.

Thank you friends:)                         Ornaments are available for sale on ETSY and my Selling Blog

 Today I remember why I paint.  Work has been very stressful for several weeks and I feel into the habit of going home and doing anything but be creative.  Today was finally a turning point.  Not sure how it happened but glad it did.  With I pod attached to my head, I started painting some projects that need finishing....I literally feel the stress roll off my shoulders.
