Above I'm showing you some of my creativity that I been doing the past week(besides looking at everyone's blogs and not getting too much done.So well worth it.I would miss some connection to you out there).I made this for a Christmas present for my special friend out here in Arizona Mrs.Vicki.She is originally from Baton Rouge,LA. she has been living out here in Az for over a 3 yrs or so I have known her for a little over 2 years.She and I been figuring out where to antique out here.We do have fun ..Let me tell you when she talks, O yeah ... 100% southern just like her kindness can be.Mrs.Vicki's heart IS full of kindness and hospitality and she is true believer in God.I wanted to show her that she means alot to me.I don't take her friendship for granted.Anyone who gets to know Mrs.Vicki would see what I'm talking about.I probably be talking about her as well as my friend Bren from back in Il.
We all have special friends in our hearts and our lives.Stories that we relive.Stories that makes us laugh so hard.I am one of those. I have to admit(yeah I might have wet my pants a few times).I love a good laugh.Stories that we share that involve a box of Kleenex and tears of heartache and sadness.Stories that make you grow. Ok ,and for some like me on the flip side of it.... growing too would be food You know ice cream and my favorite cookies they are like vitamins.They make you feel better ,right?? I felt pretty good when I ate the cookies Bren sent.( I ate most of them).Decorating issues to hair and do you think this outfit makes me look big?? he he...Sometime for me might be a cooking issue.Right Bren?? Th rifting ,Antiquing we have some stories about that.Our families,children.
A sisterhood that we share and so many more stories that will be made to the chapters of our lives.
I hope everyone had a wonderful warm and cozy holiday...Chickie
Working on my fireplace mantel.trying to put it all together.I did use some real green from outside.Lucky for me we have 3 little bushes outside by the lake here that I used some clipping for our fireplace mantel Adding some white lights to it.Time consuming at the same time. I do really enjoy decorating our home for the holidays. Ok, back to more decorating.
Hope everyone in keeping warm out there .For here at the little lake cottage its nice 70's. My friend Bren back in Il has texted me with some pretty wintery pics of the snow she has in her yard.Brrrr Bren.That looks cold.She like to remind me what I'm missing out of the midwest seasons. Bren, You know I been in many cold winters there..Gotta love her ! So then I fill her in with the weather here.He He ...
I miss the snow in the way it blankets the outside and it makes Christmas that much better.It has its own way of adding to the Christmas spirit and is is pretty and the art work hat God makes in its own way.The coldness of it Brrr.I could pass. .I do enjoy and look forward seeing the pics of the weather through the eyes of others.
Fun Finds 2 U...Chickie
