Merry Christmas to All


I thought I'd share the last of my Christmas pictures with you. The one room I had left is the kitchen. Here's a few items that set on the counter tops.

Notice the snowman on frig.
A pine cone under a cheese dome.


A centerpiece that sets on the pass through dividing the kitchen and family room.


My kitchen table with a candle, poinsettias and holly around it.

This is a favorite Santa print pressed onto wood that I used to sell at craft shows. We could not make these fast enough.



I found this little snowman on Hilton Head Island at a Reader's Digest Store. I never knew Reader's Digest had a store until I saw that one. Have you ever seen one?

He holds Christmas bulbs that have magnetic tops that stick on his hands. They are salt and pepper shakers. I just had to buy it.


On the island sets a trifle bowl with Christmas bulbs and garland to match.

A red charger on a stand with a candle in front.



A Christmas plate, cup with candy canes, & bowl full of apples and pine cones.



That wraps up the Christmas pics.

It's been an unusual couple of months at our house. With hubby's heart surgery, company from out of town, & preparing for the Christmas season, it has been a whirlwind.

God has given much mercy, grace and peace to sustain us through this trial. I know many of you know exactly what I mean and have had trials of your own.
It's been a honor to pray for some of you or a member of your family as you have shared a burden or pray request. WE have an awesome God who has an open ear to hear those requests.
Take time this week to reflect on the reason for this season and celebrate Jesus's birth and the sacrifice he made for us. It's a wonderful time of the year!

Merry Christmas to you all!

I will be out of town visiting my Mother this week. Looking forward to posting and catching up with you after Christmas.

Love all your decorations. I have never heard of a Reader's Digest store either. That should be interesting.
Have a blessed Christmas.

As for the snowman on the frig. Go back a few posts on my blog and you will see how I made it with construction paper.

I trust you had a great Christmas - it's hard to believe it's over already! The company leaves early in the morning - it's been fun, but I'm tired!

I am kicking around the idea of painting my kitchen cabinets white and I was not sure how they would look but seeing yours make me sure that I would love it. Thank you for sharing your Christmas decorations, how lovely.
