And since I am going all out this Christmas-I seem to have a
renewed spirit. I really can’t say why, my life is not perfect, but I
am thankful for where my journey has taken me. And when I say
all out, I mean that I am pulling out all of my Christmas decorations.
I am sorting through boxes that have been tucked away for years. I
have added a touch of this and that to bring new life to beloved
My mail box is not black-no problem I will still make a gorgeous red
bow and add some greenery and berries-just know this will make
our mailman smile.
So, I have a window pane and I am going to paint it, add some vinyl
letters, I am thinking I may use BELIEVE. Being thankful
and believing are where I am right now and I like it-alot!

been shopping antique shops from Oklahoma to Mississippi. I have
found some darling pitchers which I will be filling with sprigs of

that makes this so appealing. I do have a wooden dough bowl which
I may use to try to replicate this look. If not just oodles of white
candles throughout our home would be symbolic and delightful.
Attention to detail makes everything stand out in this room, as
well as the uniform packaging which keeps it all from being too
busy. I am going to coordinate my gift wrapping this year-this will
be a stretch for me.
Isn’t this just lovely, I am keeping with gold and red for my
decorating motif. I really feel as though staying focused and on
track has helped me simplify my decorating and enjoy the process
even more. Before Pinterest and other online resources I always
turned to Better Homes and Garden, Traditional Home, Southern
Living etc… and even though I still do use magazines I am truly
enjoying Pinterest. Do you have a favorite resource for your
