Enjoying The Moments

As I sit and enjoy my quiet time with coffee in hand I can't help but have good tidings for the season.... The wind is showing it's strength and snow is flying and I am enjoying the warmth of my home and oh, so fortunate to have a warm home... I have enjoyed so very many lovely posts sharing their decorating and beautiful open houses attended... Many lovely creations by hand and vintage glass balls tucked safety into beautiful glass jars and cloches filled with bottle brush trees and all things sparkly are among my favorites.... I so love the sugary-sweet glisten of Christmas and love to take many objects through Valentines Day. I hope the sugar plum fairies are dancing in your head as I would love to view many more ideas and lovely homes....
Remember your homes are all decorated in it's holiday finest make inspiration and anticipation soar in wonderment of the days to come.... No matter where you go or what you do for yuletide cheer- take precious moments, stop and enjoy.. Find the beauty and charm in the holiday season as we celebrate the anniversary of Christ's birth.

God always gives his best to those who leave the choice to him.......

I love that bowl of vintage glass balls...there is nothing like them anymore.
I love decorating for Christmas! I love seeing my family smile when I add just one more thing!
Blogging has added to the fun, being able to share our homes with each other!
Enjoy your day and stay warm!

How very true - He does keep us under His care doesn't He? When my younger son was deployed - I did just that, in June I had Cancer surgery. Believe me - it wasn't easy to say "My life is in Your care, I know it is!" But then I just picture Him shaking His head and smiling at me...lol. Beautiful post and I too, love the fragrance of roses. Jennifer

As you can see from my blog header, I did my office tree (if you can call twigs a tree) in pinks, silvers and touch of gold. Love your Christmas balls in the bowl. Have a great day, T

Such lovely ornaments of times past. The best part of decorating is that feeling of accomplishment and the splendor of smiles it encourages. Just below, the letters I need to type for word verification are b-l-e-s-t. Phoenetically speaking...we are all.

I love, love, love the glass balls in the bowl! I wish so badly that I had the ones my mom had so many years ago. I have no idea what happened to them but I can guess that they didn't survive my childhood. (My sister probably broke them all with absolutely no help from me LOL)

I'd like to invite you to my blog giveaway at My 100th blog post giveaway. The drawing is Wednesday, the 16th and I'm hoping to have lots of entries. I'm always wanting to meet new blog friends and this is a great chance to do just that.

Have a great Friday!!

Hi Marietta,
I love the ornaments!! Beautiful!! I have quite a stash of old ornaments too, but nothing like I used to because I have sold a lot of them on ebay in the past. Happy day!!
Blessings~
