Is it really Friday already!!!!
So much to do......so little time!
I was hoping to be farther along with all my Christmas
preparations, but unfortunately there have been
so many distractions!
I'd hoped to show you my grapevine tree today, but
I'm not finished decorating it yet!
I'm still pulling out ornaments....
~ Frosty the Snowman ~
~ Primitive handmade crow ~
~ Silver beaded stars ~
~ Vintage Santa ~
My all time favorite ornament is the little silver spider that
my son Samuel made me when he was in about 2nd grade....it's hard
be believe he's already 22 years old!
Yeah, I found the box with all my antique stand up Christmas
I love to hang chalkware sheep here and there....this one
hangs from the key to the Grandfather Clock.

I was very excited to find a new little desk calendar....
~ Art of Sewing ~
2015 stand up desk calendar
Just what I needed for my Studio office desk!
I bought my online from
I'm finally making some headway on my next sampler after
MUCH frustration and several setbacks!
I do however have the frame picked out....
~ Antique Motto Frame ~
I'll even share a little sneak peek....
Hope to have this new sampler all stitched and framed
after Christmas, and ready to release shortly
Ever since my mother passed away suddenly on
December 7th of 2007, it's been really hard for me to
get into the Christmas Spirit....Christmas was
always her favorite time of the year.
Now that we can no longer share Christmas together, I've
started a new tradition of finding a special gift online, and
when it arrives in the mail, I place it under the
Christmas tree and wait until Christmas Day
to open it.
It's a special gift in memory of her.
I was so happy that the item I ordered made it here on
All the way from the United Kingdom.
(I still like to use my old business name
when ordered things online).
I'll show my little gift on Friday, December 26th.

But the path of the just is as the shining light,
that shineth more and more unto the

Stay warm and cozy :)
Christmas Blessings of joy to all,
