My Christmas Tree



Hello, Dear Ones!
I decided it was time to show you my Christmas tree in the day time.
Today the sun was shining through so sweetly so I snapped!
You know what I mean. :)

 It's a little hard to get a snap without getting the chandy in the picture.

 I fell in love with Deco Mesh last year after seeing all the joyness that Kristen at Kristens Creations and Liz at Savvy Seasons by Liz created with their trees.
I think I did a better job with it this year.

I made my same explosion again this year.
This was inspiration from Kristen again.
I do believe I need to poke a few more things into it. 
Don't you love learning so much from our Blogging friends?

Deco Meshed and ornied! 

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my Christmas tree in the daylight.

  The sunshine just looked so pretty streaming in through the glass doors so I had to snap again.
My floor is not dirty, on the left those are the reflections of the little lights.
Just sayin'.
Didn't want you to think I was all nasty and all.

 My little helper, Chloe Dawn, is always close by but she got tuckered out and decided to take a morning nap in the sunshine.
I love my little fuzzy face!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

I don't want a lot for Christmas There is just one thing I need I don't care about the presents Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true All I want for Christmas Is you
I don't want a lot for Christmas There is just one thing I need And I don't care about the presents Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking There upon the fireplace Santa Claus won't make me happy With a toy on Christmas Day
I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true All I want for Christmas is you You baby
Oh I won't ask for much this Christmas I won't even wish for snow And I'm just gonna keep on waiting Underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it To the North Pole for Saint Nick I won't even stay awake to Hear those magic reindeer click
'Cause I just want you here tonight Holding on to me so tight What more can I do? Baby all I want for Christmas is you You
Oh all the lights are shining So brightly everywhere And the sound of children's Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing I hear those sleigh bells ringing Santa won't you bring me the one I really need? Won't you please bring my baby to me?
Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas This is all I'm asking for I just want to see my baby Standing right outside my door
Oh I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true Baby all I want for Christmas is You baby
All I want for Christmas is you baby All I want for Christmas is you baby All I want for Christmas is you baby

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true...
All I want for Christmas is
You... yeah

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
(and I) Don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
(ahhh) Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you... You baby

A Shot In The Dark



Hello, Dear Ones.
Well, I have my tree up and thought I'd show it to you.
Come on...

 I'll get up from my chair in the den and take you into the entry.

It's evening and of course I've turned off all the house lights so you could see my tree in the dark being all twinkly and stuff.
I'll show you my tree in the daylight later on.

I'm working on my Christmasing and will be showing you more as I progress.
Oh, I'm popping my vitamins so I'll have strength to get it all done.
I'm so delicate you know! :)



Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll lelave you with a little Note Song ~ 

Christmas Time Is Here

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year...

Christmas At Miss Beckys


Hello, Dear Ones!
I've not gotten to start my Christmasing yet but I do have some pretties to share. 
 A couple of weeks ago I took Chloe Dawn to her groomers 
and
the owner, Miss Becky, always decorates for the holidays
and she had her Christmas on...so I snapped.
I did ask politely though.

 Puppies were popping out all over the place.

 Isn't this just darling?


 Look at all she did! 
Chloe Dawn was asking, "Where's my cookie mommy?"




 I felt like a little kid looking and snapping at all of Miss Becky's pretties.




 Hi, Santie!!
 Hope you've enjoyed visiting Miss Beckys with me.
I'll be getting my Christmas on really soon.



I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Birthday Presents


 Hello, Dear Ones!
I pray you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We sure did and guess what?
Yesterday was my birthday!
I turned the ripe old age of 61!
But in my heart I still feel like a youngster.
Anyway...I wanted to share with you what God gave me for my birthday...
LEMONS!!
 
 We have a lemon tree out in the backyard and the fruit doesn't usually ripen until December around Christmas time. But this year they were ready on my birthday!

 So many lemons and they needed a bath.

 I thought I would make some lemonade!

 I cut my lemons into and used my old juicer to gather my lemon juice.

 I used a strainer to catch the seeds and pulp.

 Almost there.


Now I can enjoy a nice glass of fresh lemonade.
Yummy! 
Lemonade is not just for summertime.


Thank you,God, for my birthday present!
 
Here's my recipe if you'd like it::

Lemonade

5 cups of water
I cup of lemon juice
1 cup of sugar

Combine and stir. Easy peasy and you can always used bottled lemon juice, but fresh is always better.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

Thank You, Lord

For all that You've done, I will thank You
For all the You're going to do
For all that You've promised
And all that You are
Is all that has carried me through
Jesus I thank You

And I thank You
Thank You Lord
And I thank You
Thank You Lord

Thank You for loving and setting me free
Thank You for giving Your life just for me
How I thank You
Jesus, I thank You
Gracefully thank You
Thank You

Your Table For Six Is Ready



Hello, Dear Ones!
Are you almost ready for Thanksgiving?

Got my table set and ready for company!



I'm using two different patterns of Johnson Brothers dishes, but it works just fine for me.
You may think my tablecloth is too busy but again, it's okay.

These glasses are the first crystal Mr. Precious gave me. 
I love them and almost get teary eyed every time I use them.

I got so crafty and made some little place cards!
I'm so talented like that you know! :)
This is your place, so sit right down.
The card holder is a little silver (tarnished) pear with a gold top.

Creamy napkins poked in some little Fallish napkin rings.

I've sprinkled my table with little turkeys.
This set of salt and peppers, Mr.Tom and Turkeyette,
were from my collection from when I was a little girl.
I don't have many sets left any more.





These little turkeys are not old but they're cute! :)
I put together a very simple and easy centerpiece.
Grabbed a silver tray, poked a little faux pun'kin in the center, tossed a fall garland of leaves around it and then added Fallen fruits and veggies.
Done!
I wanted to have a low centerpiece so we could see our company across the table.

Well, you may as well know I had a little helper.
My little Chloe Dawn. 
Here she is stretching after her long morning of work.
She wishes you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving and blessings to you all.
We have so much to be thankful for, don't we?
There are so many in need ~
physically and spiritually ~ our prayers are with them.

Wonderful, Merciful Savior

Wonderful, merciful Saviour
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would've thought that a Lamb could
Rescue the souls of men
Oh, You rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost our way
Oh, we've hopelessly lost the way

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we're falling before Your throne


You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

~ sung by Selah
