O' Christmas Tree

So here we are..day 18 of the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge that is spearheaded by Cheryl at Muppin.Com ... I am so glad that Cheryl put this challenge out there because I really feel like I'm back in the swing of blogging and I can see so much potential with sharing more quilting things after the holidays.

Speaking of the holidays...I finally sat down tonight after baking cakes & cooking red pasta sauce all day and sat down to enjoy some Star Wars and was looking at our pretty skinny tree..

We don't have a large living room and we really wanted the tree in room we spend most of our time. We found this skinny pre-lit tree a few years ago and I added some red lights to give it some jazz.


My sweet friend Janet (The Empty Nest gal) made this for me several years ago and each time I unwrap it I get a big smile across my face...one reason is that she made it for me and another I just love bottle brush trees and this is a tiny little bottle brush tree.

Another dear friend, Kathy (she has a must follow blog) brought this back from her last European vacation...I love this long skinny Santa.


I can't remember where Mr. Owl came from but I love him with his white fluffy feathers.

I have a few of these doggie ornaments on our tree..this is Maggie the Wonder Dog...Maggie came in to my life before Mr. Kelly Ann did and she was one spoiled rotten golden retriever.

Here is Zele T. Rotten Puppy Dog...Zele was a rotten puppy in 2003 but here we are in 2016 and are very happy that this sweet girl is still with us.

It's hard to see the handmade ornament in this picture, it's a beaded star that our niece, Sylvia, made a few years ago. I'm so happy that this sweet girl is in to crafting...someone to pass my craft down to and maybe even some of my stash.

I could go on and on with ornaments from our sweet skinny tree but these are a few of my favorite ones.

So tell me...do you do a real tree or are do you go artificial?

Until Next Time

Be Kind

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind

Weather

Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
