Home for Christmas

Hi Everyone
 Happy Friday
Will you be Home for 
There  really is no place like
 home especially at
Christmas time
For So many years
 I was flying during this busy time 
It makes being home  now even more 
I realized then that 
Christmas is NOT about how perfect
 our Home looks....
Christmas is NOT
how many presents are under the tree
even how our presents are wrapped.....
is about  being with the people that you
it is about family traditions 
old and new
 it is about giving and sharing 
This Christmas take the time
to be grateful
 for all of God's many Blessings
and be reminded of the real meaning of
May God Bless you and your Home

Christmas gate

Hi Everyone
 Happy Monday
There is something so fun about ice skating 
maybe its just the challenge not to fall
or maybe it is falling just a little
could be the cold and bundling up
in our
 mittens and scarves
and drinking hot cocoa too

having our daughters ice skates out for all to see this time of  year
brings back so many
 wonderful  family memories 

This year we found the most wonderful  Christmas tree it is
 very full and when we got it home it was much bigger than it looked at the lot
 so we trimmed a few branches and they worked perfectly
 tucked inside the skates
We even added some jingle bells so
opening the gate
even sounds like
 Every year it is a family tradition to add the ice skates somewhere
Family traditions
This year we will be ice skating all together at the famous Hotel Del Coronado
can't wait to make new family memories!!!!

romantic saying for today

"Express your Love at every chance"



Vintage Gift Ideas

 Hi Everyone
 Happy Saturday
Here are a few last minute Teacher gifts that 
we put together yesterday
adding a few vintage treasures to help
give the gifts a personal touch
This year we collected cups and creamers
{this one is a Emma Bridgewater creamer}
and potted just one 
paper white bulb
{a fun family project}
The bulbs will bloom at just the perfect time
Wrapping it simply in cellophane and twine 
also protects the dirt from spilling out
in route to school
This vintage aluminum juicer is the perfect container
 for homemade white chocolate bark
we added a funky vintage porcelain handle
that can be used later as a tree ornament 
~funky and fun~
The last gift is a extra large cup filled with 
Trader Joes candy cane peppermint green tea 
so yummy
 We added a  vintage heart shaped tea strainer
 and a red and white candy cane
 Simple gifts with a vintage touch
Which gift was your favorite.....
I always remember the advice our Grandmother gave us about  giving gifts 
"Always give a gift you would be happy to receive"

romantic saying for today

"For yesterday's memories, today's love, and tomorrow's dreams I love you."



White Elephant Gift

 Hi Everyone
 Happy Friday
Are you all finished with your
 Christmas decorating
or are you like our family we 
do not even have our tree yet ....
we will be part of the masses getting our tree this weekend
Do you see this tiny Santa silver bell 
 it was a white elephant gift
every year a dear friend has a Christmas party and asks everyone to bring a small present wrapped
it is one of those swaps where you can trade your gift for someone else s gift 
believe me this game can get intense
   This little Santa bell was the last white elephant gift opened
I was sitting happily with my gift...
a pretty poinsettia plant
and all of the sudden my poinsettia plant was gone and I had the silver Santa bell
I admit I was talking and not really paying attention to the game 
and everyone was laughing turns out the Santa bell had been swapped a few times
{no one wanted him}
but I liked the vintage bell
It fit right in with a few other silver treasures we have 
like this vintage silver chocolate snowman mold 

Now when all the girls come over to our house
 and see the Santa they always say why did we trade him ?
I am grateful they did
