I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

Christmas Goodies

I hope you had a wonderful
Christmas holiday!

I am trying to get
caught up with some of
my December postings.
Deb (Garage Sale Gal) and
I exchange goodies
through out the year.
She sent me some wonderful
vintage Santa finds, 
handmade stocking collage
 and local chocolates.
The chocolate pretzels
didn't last too long.

Here is a vintage Santa
penny bank.  Love it!

She made the stocking collage
using vintage goodies. 

She also sent the vintage
Santa teacup.  Love it!

Deb, thank you for your
kindness and friendship!

I am trying to get all
the Christmas decor down
and packed by New Year's
Day.  AAHH nothing like
starting the New Year
fresh, clean, and
organized.  Well,
maybe not so organized!

What did you get for
Christmas?  I received
a new iPad 2.  I have
been playing around
with some new APPs.

Wishing you a wonderful
and safe weekend!

Christmas Past

Christmas is just a few
days away.  Are you
ready for Christmas day?

This evening while searching
for my "new" camera, I found
these family Christmas photos.

What is so funny?
First photo...take
notice of the little
blonde girl on the
right holding her 2
new dolls. Just look
at me all prissy 
with my dolls and
OMG I have my legs
crossed! No socks! 
The second photo take
a look at the outfits!
Who is out of season?

I can't stop
The third photo is not
a Christmas image.
But just look at
my expression!
I think I was a
worrier at 2 years old!
The fourth photo is
of my mom.  This is
one of my favorite
photos of her.
Well I must get back
to cleaning for our
company to arrive

This week I will
be sharing some photos
of Christmas goodies I
received from Deb.
She is such a good
friend.  We exchange
gifts several times
a year. Thank you
again Deb! 

Wishing you a wonderful

Welcome December!

Where has the time gone this year?

I hope your Thanksgiving was
a wonderful time for
you and your family.

December comes way too early
with all the fuss for
decorating our homes and offices,
Christmas shopping, planning meals,
attending to our home nesting,
and not to mention if we have a FT job.

We have completed all of Christmas shopping.
 Just need to get those packages
 in the mail. Our Christmas cards
are made...just need addressing
and mailing. We have almost
completed our home decorating. 
I will share photos of our
Christmas cards and
home later this week.

Thank you for your visit
this week to my blog. 
I love hearing from you. 
I will catch up with some
of my favorite blogs this week.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Until next time, Sharon

is made by me using digital
art by Gina Marie Huff at
Weeds and Wildflowers.
