At duskThis year I opted for "no-tree-topper" for the tree! I can't believe it myself, I guess I thought it wasn't me. (The traditional girl at heart) But I actually really like the look! (After I tried it!) It's oh-so-natural and......... and ........... so chic, like a good hair-cut! Lol! Now you've seen the tree from all different angles, let's change the scene. Don't forget to take some time out for a sit down and a little break from all the busy-ness. and oh, roses too........... I haven't forgotten them! They are always so therapeutic, no doubt. Do you like my chalkboard creation? I painted a $2 canvas board. You know, the sort you get from the Two-buck shop. Then I put it on a $2 metal stand, and there you have it-- Your very important Message for the Season! Our bed needs a bit of Christmas "dress-up" too! And the kitchen/dining area. Simplicity is the key.Have a lovely lovely weekend everyone.

Christmas, oh Christmas
It has been a thrill for me to get e-mails from you ladies telling me how much you appreciate this blog, I want to express my gratitude for that here and let you know how much your e-mails have encrouraged and touched me. You ladies are a great bunch. I also wonder how everyone is faring as you prepare for this special Christmas season, I hope you're not too stressed out trying to pick the perfect gifts for your loved ones. I love Christmas, except when I have to do the last minute shopping of course; I really don't like it when the shops get too crowded and the check-out lines are loooong. So the key for me is to get in early and do the shopping in January or June, right? But I know someone who likes that-- the rush, the buying presents with tinsels hanging in her hair, the crowd, the loooong check-out lines and the whole not-so-appealing-to-me scene ............ Mmm! Some people!
