Valentines Day decorations make me smile

 
I love decorating for the seasons, the holidays, the weather, I love decorating for my mood oh heck, I just love displaying things in our home that make me feel good and make my family feel happy.
 
 


   Valentines Day is the perfect opportunity to display all of my red pretties.
 
 
          So many things have been sent to me by my loving blog friends


The vintage vases I have displayed here were found at the Goodwill! OMG I just about fell over when I found these !



The Wee Wisdom booklet is dated February 1949.


This is the buffet in my dining room.....the mirror is NOT crooked, my camera was! LOL

 
  This just makes me happy, do you know what I mean?






   I could play for hours


    A little white wicker end table that I just adore......$5.00 Goodwill score












    Received this in the mail this week from my friend Patti, she is such a special blog sister in The Lord. She blogs at Paintin Patti
 



This figurine was given to me by an elderly friend of mine and I absolutely adore her, see the little bluebird on the candy box?

 
Well I hope you enjoyed my Valentine d├ęcor as much as I enjoy displaying it. I appreciate your visit and pray your week is going well !
 
Smiles,

Mission Organization

I am starting my new year in "organization mode". I am determined to GET and KEEP my craft room organized. I have some ideas in my head and surfed the internet for random pics to share. Note: NONE of the pics in this post are my craft room, I am just sharing some pretty ideas.
 
 

This is a simple and practical idea


I absolutely adore this butter yellow 3 tiered stand, its pretty, its functional and its unique. I have several 3 tiered stands in my storage shed I will be pulling out this weekend......oh the possibilities!


This room makes me smile, I love the bookshelf that serves as storage for bits and bows and crafting supplies. I bet my husband could build that for me.


  Beautiful


 

 
 This space is divine
 


Well I am filled with motivation and excitement to get my space in order. I will share pictures and ideas along the way. I am sure to tweak my ideas a million times, rearranging is a way of life for me.


Thank you for visiting.

Christmas Mail

Ding Dong at the front door could only mean one thing.......I have a package on my porch
 
 

My blog sister in Christ Deb from Garage Sale Gal sent this loving package filled with so many treasures.
 
 


Deb is by far one of my closest friends-in-the-heart. We have known each other for 10 years through blogging but have never met in person. She knows me better than some of my closest family members.
 
Isn't this tin just adorable?
 


She knows I love paper crafting and she tucked these vintage stickers & ephemera inside the tin.......


      The most adorable vintage recipe book....
That red is my favorite


If these pages could talk
 

A beautiful sheet of Christmas words describing the birth of Our Lord.


   I thank The Lord for blessings like these and most of all for the blessing of a treasured friendship that would not have formed had it not been for the hand of God and of course the wonderful world of blogging. Its undeniable that blog sisters are one of a kind and very, very special.
 



I am almost done with wrapping all the gifts (that's my favorite) and I am so happy to be off all week to spend time with my son. Are you all ready for Christmas?

Girls Get Together & Christmas Decorations

 
Well its been a while since my last post.....life just gets so busy.
 I hosted a get-together with my long-time girlfriends from an accounting firm that we all worked together at years ago.
 
 


Setting the table is my favorite part.


"Mis-matched" is my middle name and that's just the way I like it. A holly tablecloth and napkins paired with gingerbread plates......its all Christmas and that's all that matters.


Each girl got a little mug with their initial on it and a chocolate dipped spoon. I found the mugs at Williams Sonoma, I absolutely love that store.


I love decorating the buffet in my dining room.


I made my famous chocolate bundt cake and displayed it in my Martha Stewart domed cake plate. My daughter blessed me with that beautiful pedestal plate last Christmas.




Let me sneak in a couple of pictures of my (adorable) son. He makes my heart smile.


He is the sunshine of my life




Here is the sideboard in my kitchen all decked out


My Hoosier


Some might think it's "too much" but it looks warm and cozy to me.
 


This is my other hutch decorated with Christmas cheer





I found this Gingerbread House at Dillard's yesterday.....
I was so excited


Our tree in all it's splendor


My girlfriends who make memories to cherish through good times, laughter and love.




One more week of work then I am off for a week. I adore being home the Christmas week, baking, wrapping and enjoying my family.
