I just like to thank you for taking the time to sit back and visit my blog. I am blessed to have a healthy family, beautiful kids and a lovely dog. Love to share ideas and decorations with you. Eve firstname.lastname@example.org
is having a Silent Auction for a blogger, probably she is a friend to many of us and now needs some financial help. We know it is wonderful to receive gifts but it's even better to give to someone not expecting it. This season is beautiful even more beautiful if we can help others.
I just send an email to Traci to let her know that I am donating this doll to help her to reach the goal . So please, have a post in your blog to let others that this auction ends on Tuesday, Dec 20.
Handmade make do prairie doll. She is OOAK item, no pattern was used on it.
She is mounted in a old spool.
Her body and clothes are made of muslin that had been stained in a grungy mix to give her an old appearance. In her hands ( made of wooden sticks) she holds a crow and had a tag that shows " 1812" .
I am asking for a prayer for my nephew. Today, I received a call from my family telling me that my nephew got an MRI on Tuesday and the doctors founded a brain tumor. They set a complicated emergency surgery for tomorrow at noon. His name is Jose and he is only 14 years old. I believe in prayers, please if you have time today make a prayer for him.
In a happy note, last week I won two giveaways. First one is from Jennie Lynn from Appleseed Prim . She was hosting a giveaway in honor of her First Blog Anniversary, I won her partridge and pear giveaway. This is her own creation and she did an amazing job on it. It is in antique white and the pear was covered with cinnamon. She is an awesome artist, her work is so beautiful.
Also, she send me a cutest angel. I loved prim angels. I believe in angels and I think that they are always watching us.
A bunch of cinnamon sticks, they smell awesome. How she knows that I loved this scent? LOL
And a beautiful card..
Jennie , THANK YOU so much from the bottom of my heart. I love them.
The other gift is from Jan from Big Brown Dog Primitives. TDIP Mercantile was having a Door Prize Giveaway, Jan is one of her artisans and I won her prize....these are two delicate and beautiful ornaments. And yes, they are angels too. Her work is simply perfect. Visit her blog to see her creations.
I loved Christmas time and would like to decorate simple and elegant, with a colonial feel. You know what I mean with the minimum possible decoration, just a touch here and there. But when you have children you have to decorate for them too and make the Christmas a little fun and cheerful for them. I try to balance my tastes and their preferences, although I always use white lights in my trees, I tried to put color in the decoration through the house. I am not finished yet but here some pictures...
I know, already put a lot of pictures but who of us does not like to see pictures, LOL. I hope you enjoyed them.
