Santa Juju has it right...this is just how I feel today! We
had family over yesterday from Kentucky and Tennessee. It was
a wonderful afternoon full of fellowship and lots of food.
"The Cousins". I used to take this photo of the cousins
with my Grandmother. We have now had 2 Christmas holidays
without her. Some traditions are hard to break.
This is Kenson, Kyle and Macy. Kenson is my brother's son.
Aunt Pat and I always enjoy each other's company, whether on
the phone or face to face. I always hope to see more of my
family than I actually get to do. Maybe in 2010, we will all
do better. Happy and restful Sunday to all.

A small glimpse of my tree with a favorite photo
of my dad and aunt.
This beauty was rescued from an antique store in Omaha and
she looks lovely atop my little white tree.
This happy fella was a $4 purchase from the Nashville Flea Market.
I can never have too many snowmen around at Christmas time.
He looks nice in front of my altered frames from Karla.
I have a small collection of putz houses and churches....this
one is my favorite!
Here's Alpha modeling her pretty Christmas attire. The vintage
apron was given to me from Jenni.
The pocket is adorned with an old earring.
Even Juju gets a Christmas stocking. And least anyone thinks her
not too bright....she went right to this stocking due to the wonderful
smell of bones awaiting her.
A Christmas tradition....sleeping together on Christmas Eve. Of course,
now that they are older, they stay awake later, talking and texting. I
had to tell them to go to sleep around 1:00 am. Santa needed her sleep!
Juju loves her new resting pillow and enjoyed the tasty bacon
flavored bone that Santa left for her. She is ready for a nap with
all of this Christmas fun and fluffing. The Santa suit was easy, but
the bow took about 5 attempts. Wishing everyone a restful Christmas,
spent with family and friends!

Even a sweet little puppy needs some Christmas fluffing. She
was way overdue for her first haircut. Unfortunately, she was
afraid of the shaver, so she only received a little trim.
Luckily, they were able to cut some hair around her eyes and put
a cute Christmas bow on top and around her neck. Least you think
she keep it in for long.....here's proof of her destroying it!!
Maybe, I can put it back in for Christmas day. Ha

with the lovely Jenni Bowlin. This beautiful, and I might
add delicious cupcake was waiting for me. Such a sight to
my eyes and every bite of it was an almondy taste to my
tongue. I sure wanted another one.
We started the day off shopping with so many lovelies to
see. This piece had me at hello and I am happy to say, it
now resides in my house....of course, minus all of the goods.
I am quite taken with it and will decorate it for the holidays!
Jenni sure knows how to make glitter look tempting!
All of her displays just ooze with vintage goodness.
I especially like this unique crown display piece.
Jenni and me, now at her booth in a local antique mall. She has
such a way with displaying her vintage items, that all of the
girls walked away with a purchase or two!
Some Christmas temptations.
Love the use of an old scale to hold the candle and Christmas
Dont you just love Jenni's boots?? She is too cute. I enjoyed
a wonderful day with about 20 ladies, Jenni and her most delightful
husband Jared. Some folks journeyed from Louisiana, Ohio and Texas.
I will share photos later of the pretties that I made
in the 2 classes. Off now to decorate the house!
