Lots of Christmasing Going On

Hey everyone!  Long time, no blogging; but I am back and ready to share!  In case you are wondering, "Christmasing" is definitely a word....at least around my home, and I've been doing lots of it.  I seriously pulled out all the stops this year and used everything I had, plus a few new things.  And, you know what?  It took me over a week, but I enjoyed every minute of the process.  And, isn't that the way it should be?  Well, anyway, let's get this show on-the-road.  I promise I will TRY  not to be overly wordy.

I've never had this tree in this location before, and The Man and I are loving it!  This is the view as you walk into our entry.  I wasn't sure it would work, but there is ample room to walk around either side of the tree....well, maybe not for me after I ingest a few too many Christmas cookies!

This is a 7' tree and plenty tall enough for this 5'1" decorator who does not like being on any ladder over 4' high!

I found some of the cutest ornaments at the Dollar Store this year....they have upped their game!

I painted our 48 year old nativity last year and could not wait to bring it out again this year.  I used the same large cloche, but added fairy lights.  As you will soon see, I have gone "bananas" over fairy lights....I mean, seriously, they run on batteries and have timers!

I've really enjoyed adding pops of black and white check throughout my decor....it works with everything.

The top of my china cabinet was the very first place I decorated.  All the major pieces were already there from my Fall decor.  Again...fairy lights make it look magical!

Yes, more Fairy Lights!

I always create an album page each year with our Christmas photo and Christmas card message.  This was so fun and cute from last year, that I decided to put it in a shadow box frame for part of my decor.

I seldom, if ever, remove art from a wall for the sake of holiday decorating.  I just work around it.

Well, obviously my attempt at being less wordy did not work out so well.  Hopefully, you made it through unscathed.  I have lots more to share as we move quickly into this special season.  Thank you so much for stopping by to see what's been going on around here.  I appreciate you all so much, and I truly hope you are in good health and enjoying all aspects of this holiday.

Warm hugs,

  9. My husband and I have been married for about 7 years now. We were happily married with two children, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago I started to notice strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I discovered that my husband was seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he doesn't care about me or the kids anymore, sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come home for about 2-3 days. I did everything I could to correct this problem but to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. One day when I was surfing the Internet, I came across a website that suggested that Dr. Padman could help resolve marital problems, restore broken relationships, and so on. So I felt like I had to give it a try. I contacted him and he made a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to see me and apologized for the wrongs he had committed and promised to never do it again. Since then, everything has returned to normal. My family and I live happily together again. All thanks to Dr. Padman. If you need a spellcaster capable of casting a spell that really works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. Here is his email:
