Special time of year

Thank you, my blogging pals,
 for your friendship and kind words.
 When I started blogging
I had no idea how many treasured friends I would
have the privilege of adding to my life.
 I am grateful for each one of you! 
I haven't been posting because.......
I was a vendor last weekend at the Central Presbyterian Church in conjuction with the Holly and Ivy tour of homes. Carol, pictured on the left is dear friend of 56 years and was a great helper!
Below are a few more Christmas treasures  I made to sell. 

Sunday we woke up to this beautiful view!

Our dear friend "Donna" from Omaha water colored
 this adorable Mr. and Mrs. Snow couple for us. Note the monogrammed letters of "G" on his scarf and  the "C" on her jacket--how clever you are "Donna"!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!


  1. What sweet little Christmas treasures you've made! Sounds like you had a wonderful time. The water colored snow people are adorable!

  2. So good to see your post! I've been a little bit AWOL from blog land - but trying to catch up with special people - and you're right there at the top of my list! Your Christmas goodies are so cute!! The snowmen make me smile!!

    Hope you have a Blessed Holiday Season filled with Love, Joy and Peace!

  3. Your Christmas pieces are wonderful! Hope you did well with them. You will need plenty of hot chocolate at your house, your winter is starting early and with a bang!

  6. Dear Carolyn,
    Thank you for sharing photographs of the Show. I must say, the table was simply overflowing with lovely treasures...and to spend time with a long-time friend is ever so special.

  25. Being such a bad blogger lately, I just left a comment on your August post about selling your house. Talk about being behind! That would be me.
