Playing with Paper

Last week I spent a lovely afternoon with Cindy of Oakview Cottage. Cindy and her hubby have  a lovely home near the Red River. She gave me a cute star made from sheet music, and that got me started on a few little paper projects. I had an old music book  so I mod-podged a few candles, and then used my hounds tooth wrapping paper to cover the back of a hutch. Nice little changes, and fun to do….

Tartan Mosaic

At this time of year, Tartan seems so appropriate.
I am joining Mary at Little Red House with a few photos of Tartan around my dining room. Thanks, Mary!

Playing with Dishes–Lenox Holiday

A few weeks ago Pat from Back Porch Musings created a post using Lenox Holiday . It appealed to me, and I thought I’d try something similar, using that as inspiration. This is my humble effort:

The cake is the fruitcake I bake every year.…(we happen to like fruitcake!)

I have been a follower of Pat’s blog for a long time, and appreciate her beautiful photos, and the poems she often quotes.

One Quiet Night

On Sunday we saw a wonderful live production at the church our son and Daughter-in-law attend. It was called “One Quiet Night” and deals with the hectic pace at this time of year, and what it can do in families. That Mom was totally frazzled! Eventually, she realizes that she needed to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas.
I can certainly relate…can you?
Our granddaughter had the part of one of the children in the family, and did a great job. We were so proud!
She plays the part of the eldest daughter.

So today, my wish for you is that you enjoy the season for it’s real meaning, and let’s not let the shopping, decorating, cooking, etc., get in the way!
