Hope all you guys are having a wonderful Christmas season . . . and all the goodies that come with it also. You all know how much I love vintage Christmas ornaments, here a pic of my newest find at St. Mathews Thrift Shop in Ocean Park. I found it over this past Summer with my Mom and sister Jeri visiting from Texas. It cost me a whole 2.00 dollars. Loving it :O)
This santa in this pic is one of my oldest vintage glass ornaments and it still has a lot of color to it. Some spots have faded, but it's still in pretty good condition.
I have a funny story to tell you about this santa . . . I had just hung him on my little tree and my oldest son, Davey came and sat down next to me and I started to tell him the history of it. Well, Davey moved and his foot hit the Santa and it flew off the tree. Davey caught it in the air and we looked at each other and both started laughing. It was so funny. I love all my santa's but I sure do miss this one, my husband Dave aka Mr. Grumpy.
Family is everything . . . make every moment count. Blessings :O)

Can't get enough cute, a Christmas doll too!
A very dear friend of mine invited me to a woman's event at Calvary Church last Thursday evening and I so enjoyed it, wonderful speaker and very inspirational . . . good way to start off this Christmas season, letting God be the center of it. Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful season that is upon us. Blessings :O)

It always good to praise . . My oldest son Davey turned 28 years old this week. I'm so grateful he has a strong knowing of God in his life . . . and turned out to be such a beautiful person inside and out. Happy Birthday Davey! This pic is from Davey's elementary school graduation, he was only twelve years old.
I will praise you O Lord, among the nations. I will sing of you among the peoples. For great is your love, higher than the heavens, your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens and let your glory be over all the earth. Psalm 108:3-5

My sister Linda's open house is coming soon and I'm still sewing away as fast as I can. Momma and I decided to do a craft show at Cal State Fullerton the first week of December . . it's a freebie, so we couldn't turn it down. Please excuse some of these pics from my Blackberry, not as pretty as some of yours. Anyways, I'm having fun. Today actually feels cool outside, 65 degrees. Have a beautiful weekend! :O)

Last year around Thanksgiving, my sweet sister-in-law Chris, brought me a box of vintage sewing goods from her Mom, some of these sewing pieces belonged to her Grandmother. I instantly fell in love but didn't have much of a desire at that time to create any new dolls. All that love for creating went away for awhile after Dave passed away. I put the box away. Since I started sewing again a couple of months ago, I remembered the box and brought it out and opened it again . .
I found this vintage navy collar, looks like it came off a dress or a blouse . . it's so pretty. I ran over to the fabric store and found some fabric to match pretty close to the same color with a simple pattern on it for a new creation.

Beautiful Fall pics . . . too pretty and inspiring too, especially the pumpkin bundt cake . . ladies as usual I will be packing on the pounds this Fall with all the baking that will be going on . . . little humor on my side. Been having lots of fun creating some cute stuff for my sister Linda's craft show in November. Trying to create something new besides dolls. I recently joined the unemployed . . . please keep me in your prayers. Hoping to find something new and exciting. Happy Fall! :O)
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those that love him. James 1:12

You know in order to create something, you have to have love in your heart, with no love there is no inspiration . . it's are love ones that keep us living everyday, literally. I guess I have some love in this heart of mine again . . . couldn't quite find it there for awhile. Don't forget to tell your love ones everyday how special they are . . . you'll be glad you did:O)
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God" . . Colossians 3:16

I started blogging in December 2009. I originally started a blog because I loved all the pretty artwork I could post, especially vintage post cards around the holidays. Sort of, kind of a decorating thing. Did that for about 6 months and then Dave died. I had no idea Dave was going to suffer a fatal heart attack and I was going to become a widow at an early age (mind you I didn't say young) and I would be in need of some dear friends to read my thoughts and comment back some of kindest thoughts and words that would lift me up and make me keep on going. Mind you, I 've never met any of these people in person, but yet they would so touch my heart and I would want to hear back from them and see the pics they were going to post about a trip they took, or their kids getting married, or decorating a new house and sometimes about something they were going through that wasn't easy, like a death of a family member, an ill child or moving to a new state. I would want to check on them and see if they were ok. Sometimes my kids would say who are you talking about, you've never seen these people and I would say with confidence, only a person who blogs knows what I'm talking about . . knows how special it is and how rewarding it can be.
When I returned to work after Dave passed away, I didn't have very much time to blog anymore. It would get too late and I would have to get to bed to get up in the morning and go again. The weekend would come and I would have to run errands now that my husband wasn't around to help me. And then I started noticing how much I started missing blogging and realized what a difference it had made in my life . . . I missed my blog friends. Blogging is positive and it allows you to express yourself as much as you want and as honest as you want to be without being judged. It makes you reach out to others and you become a much more positive person for doing so . . I know I have, I appreciate the little things a whole lot more and that makes me happy:O)
For those of you that are thinking of not blogging anymore . . . there's people out there that count on you to be there and look forward to hearing from you . . you make a difference . . I know in my life you do.
