A little change

This little jewelry tree was a Christmas gift years ago. I love it and I keep it out year round, but I decided it needed a little update. I have had to glue parts back on more than a few times so I thought it would just pop off the mirror and I could put it in a new frame easy-peasy.

Well, some parts of it just popped right off, others did not but I managed. It didn't come out with exactly the same shape but I got it close enough. Love it!

Have a great weekend!!!

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. I thought I would share a little of ours with you.

The 'kids' all came here for the holidays. They spread out and made themselves at home - just as it should be!

Baby boy's bride cooked dinner for us one night

There was game playing

Picture taking 

Goofing off

A lot of goofing off!

 Made s'mores on the patio

Let's see how this works (log puzzle)

Car 'shopping'

Bunk beds?

Met Bucee

 And had to say goodbye.

We were blessed to have all the 'kids' together for a precious few days. 
Started missing them the moment they left.

Happy 2017!

Merry Christmas

This is the first time we have had a fireplace to hang our stockings!
Will have all the kids together by tomorrow night. The plan is to spend a quiet Christmas and enjoy having family together.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

On the front porch

Santa greets you as you come to the front door - the wreath lights up at night

There is a cart full of ornaments beside the door

moving across to the middle of the porch - this little tree has colored lights on it at night - these are the only colored lights I have - everything else has white lights. (I would have left these all white too but hubby set it up)

This tall, skinny tree also lights up at night

Another Santa greets you on the side porch

The wreath I have on the side door (I think I showed both wreaths a few posts back when I made them - the red and white one is on the front door. I failed to take a photo of it when I was taking these)

Another cart of ornaments by the side door. The plant in the corner, along with all the other potted plants on the porch, have been moved to the garage due to freezing temps the last few days. 

I was really not feeling the whole Christmas thing and didn't really want to get everything out and decorate but hubby and the kidlet pulled everything out over Thanksgiving so I played along and we got it all done. It really does look pretty at night.

We picked up baby boy and his bride Saturday night (I think technically it was Sunday morning) after their flight was delayed by three hours. We had already left the house before the delay was called so we took the middle kidlet to dinner and hung out with him until time to head to the airport. They landed just after midnight and we made it home right at 3:00am. We are enjoying them here for a few days, then we will have to share them for a few days but they will be back for Christmas and the other two will be here by then. Love it when they can all be here together - it doesn't happen often so we try to soak it all in while they are here. It always seems to pass by so quickly!

Hope you are having a great week!

New this year

There are a few new ornaments on the tree this year






All were from kits I purchased at quilt festival in November - and I actually got them finished and on the tree this year!
Are you ready for Christmas? I'm so not ready!

A little Christmas Outside

 Picked up this little cutie the other day ( on sale - 70% off!)

 In the daytime - I need to download the rest of the pictures from the porch in daytime.

 Need to light up that gable on the left side but we ran out of lights - maybe next year

We did have enough to go all the way around the porch. I love my porch!
