Christmas In The Master


Hello My Sweet Friends

Yes, it has been quite some time since I posted a new blog

However, I am ready today

After spending the past several years avoiding the 

D├ęcor of Christmas I am finally All In this year

I have started with my Master Bedroom

As you walk up to the door

You are greeted by Mr. Happy Mail

I decided to add several of my vintage 

Christmas Postcards as a glimpse of what's inside

As the door opens

You are greeted by this happy old Santa

Smiling face and Rosy cheeks 

Once inside you find a joyfully made bed

And Santa tree on one night table

Close up of the side table Santa tree

The opposite side of the room 

Continues the Santa theme with additions of Red and White

This Metal ladder hosts several of my favorite

Red and White Throws and Quilts

Especially comfy in the winter

My vintage dresser hosts various happy pieces

Santa figurines, trees, and a fun candy vase.

My late husband's desk hosts more Santa goodies

These trees allowed for a place to hang

A few Very old sleigh bells

That belonged to my grandparents

I just LOVE them

Another Santa on his sleigh

With a couple of old handmade stackable Santa's

In the bathroom is a cute Santa boot Tree

I've added tiny wooden ornaments

For a fun kids view

My most Favorite piece in the room

Is definitely a reminder of Why we celebrate Christmas

In true Santa form

Here he is to remind us


God Bless All

It's 8:00 am
December 24, 2010

I awake to find it
A shell
A shell of a life once lived
Now gone

His spirit soars forevermore
With Christ

Alone, I sit
Somehow un~phased by the 
Flurry of people in and out

My life, Ours Lives
Nothing will ever be the same

And now
December 24, 2018
8 Years 

The kids have grown 
Moved on to Bigger
And Better Lives
You know the story

Alone  Empty

I know tomorrow is Christmas
When we remember 
His Love
His Birth
His Purpose

However today
I feel forgotten
Alone  Forsaken

I Promise
I'm remembering the Good
The Blessings

2018 Ornament Exchange

My dear sweet friend Stephanie
Hosted her first Ornament Exchange

When I heard she was doing this
I knew I wanted to participate
Everything Stephanie does
Is done with Excellence
And this was no different

I was excited to meet my new friend
Anne Marie of
Musings of a Vintage Junkie

I scoped out her blog and tried 
To choose items that were vintage in nature
And fit with my holiday color scheme

I think I succeeded but I forgot to take photos
Before I wrapped everything
So, here are a few I took
Once my package was wrapped and ready to sent

It was such a pleasure to receive my little package
I seldom receive 'happy mail' so this was fun

My new friend Abby is a talented crafter
I could tell when I opened the envelope

She cut this beautiful bird out of chimney flashing
So cute

And designed this treasured advent calendar
Each day has a wonderful scripture
Printed with sweet details 

The little bird hangs on ribbon

Love the hand crafted booklet

A very sweet and now treasured gift
I will always remember my first ornament exchange

Thank you Stephanie for Hosting
Thank you Anne Marie and Abby
For Participating and Being a Blessing
