Christmas Decorating

Hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving, I know we did.  Always lots of good food!  Well I have officially started my Christmas decorating.  Thought I would share with you what  I’ve done so far.  As you see, I don’t have any of my tree yet.  I had to get new lights for it.  I didn’t know how Jasper was going to react to the tree but so far he has left it alone.

Here Jasper is watching me decorate.  I think he has some ideas of his own but he hasn’t shared them with me yet!

Christmas Open House Part 2


Here are some pictures of Mark and Eva Zimmerman’s  home.  Again, I want to thank Eva for allowing me to share these with you.  As soon as I walk in the door, I just want to plop down and make myself comfortable!

Christmas Open House

I was able to attend Country Crow Primitives Christmas Open House and I must say I just love –love -love their home!  I have been there before and I know I will go there again as many times as I possibly can.  Just can’t get enough of their warm and cozy primitive home.  As many of you may know, Mark and Eva Zimmerman’s home was featured in the 2013 Autumn issue of Mercantile Gatherings.  The front cover is a photo taken in their home.

Eva was very gracious in letting me take some photos to share.  Their front porch was all dressed up in sprigs of greenery. You can click on this image to enlarge.

These pictures were taken inside and outside of their little cabin out back.

Remember Me?

Hi everyone, hopefully you still remember me! I have been a very bad blogger lately and I don’t have any good excuse for that either other than the daily routine of life seems to keep me busy and time just seems to get away from me but even though I’ve been away from the computer, I’m still always thinking about all my blogging friends and how much I appreciate each and everyone of you!! 

Thought I would take a picture of the tree in my front yard.  So pretty.  Although I took this the other day and it has already lost quite a few leaves.

I went into a thrift store the other day and found this neat little wooden barrel and a little brown crock, both for $3 each.  It’s always fun when you come across some treasures!  It looks like there are lines on them but that’s just the shadow of my plant sitting next to them.

lpcp 948 I wanted to share my awesome gourd basket I got awhile back that I had Linda Cochran make for me. Love it!  Thanks Linda!

Now I’m looking forward to a delicious Thanksgiving dinner and some pumpkin pie!!
