Mary Made Me a New Banner!!

Mary Made Me a New Banner!!
Isn't this new holiday banner just too perfect for me?!?! Adorable!!! Made in my favorite color ~ pink ~ and with my very favorite thing ~ an old fashioned SANTA! I collect Santas, have for years as my birthday is so near Christmas. And my dear friend, Mary of Isabella's Closet designed it just for me...........along with 13 other winners in her banner giveaway! She is the sweetest, most generous, most thoughtful lady that I know in all of blogdom. Run over to her blog & check out her beautiful home. She also sells on eBay & offers her banners & logos for sale, too, at very reasonable prices so please check her out!

Mary, I'm so pumped about the holidays & your banner is extra special to me because it comes from YOU! I plan on using it throughout the holidays for all my letterheads, eBay auctions, emails, & this blog, too!! Thank you so very much!

Can't wait for the holidays, but guess I need to get this wedding business taken care of first!!

You Lift Me Up AWARD

You Lift Me Up AWARD
My dear friend & PRH sister Celeste of La Rea Rose, has so graciously given me this award. But truthfully, I don't feel deserving of it. I am so honored & blessed to belong to such a sweet group of loving ladies ~ we all try to be there for each other & lift each other up! Celeste is always one of our group leaders in the RAH RAH feel better department. Her calming demeanor & sweet attitude are amazing. I'm going to pass this award onto several of my dear friends that always lift me up (apoligies if you've already been honored) : Vickie, Rhea, Bertie, Lorena, Katie, Sharon, Karen, Ele, Connie, Shannon, & Lori. God bless you all. I'm so happy to have you in my life!

My PRH Girlfriends

My Pretty Romantic Home Girlfriends

Can you believe how fast the holidays are approaching? I can't!!! Maybe it is because it has been so hot here in Texas until just the last few days that it still feels like summer instead of fall.

Looky Looky At What Lori Sent!

Looky Looky At What Lori Sent!

Girls, anytime you get a package that looks THIS PRETTY, you just KNOW it is gonna be heavenly, no matter what is inside!
My dear friend Lori from Pink Faded Roses sent me this surprise package in the mail ~ well not exactly a surprise as she had been "teasing" me for weeks about "something" that she was putting together for me! But I couldn't pull it out of her as to what it was going to be.
Boy, she really knows how to pack a lot of goodies into a box! There were little dress & shoe notepads, wedding graphics, glittery bows with little pink butterflies........
....cherubs, wallie roses, the cutest tiny pink clothespin.....Even silk rose petals scattered throughout the box!
Gorgeously wrapped presents.....
I wish she could have seen how my hands were shaking as I carefully opened each individual present. I giggled, I cried, I squealed with delight!
Lori knows I have a passion for anything GONE WITH THE WIND, so she often posts little snippets of trivia or pics from the movie or from that time period for me in her wonderful blog.
She surprised me with a wonderful Scarlett O'Hara figurine that I had never seen before. Hmmmm, I feel another new collection coming on!!
Look at the actual photograph of Clark Gable & Vivien Leigh on the front inset of Scarlett's gown. Isn't this just too beautiful for words?!?!

Lori, Scarlett is sitting in a place of honor at the base of my staircase. I pass by her millions of times a day, & everytime I do, I SMILE & think of you!!
Now THIS is what made me cry. My daughter is getting married in just a few weeks & of course Lori & I talk lots of wedding talk, so she made this precious wedding cake box just for me. It says Daughter's Wedding Day, is glittered, has a beautiful heart charm, millinery flowers, pink satin cording, some beautiful button adornments that had belonged to Lori's dear mother & tiny gold rings, & sheet music, & lovely pink roses! Lori really poured her heart into making this special treat & luckily this one will last forever & never give me any extra calories!!
Inside is a beautiful white rose, more awesome wedding graphics, & more pretty pink roses. What else would you expect from the Pink Faded Roses girl?
This is just exquisite & I'm so proud of it. I will treasure it always. Maybe we should all twist Lori's arm into making some of these to sell on etsy or eBay. She would definitely get some customers as her work is impeccable!
Look at the frilly pleated lace base & the lace "Icing" swags and the sweet satin roses all over it!

Thanks so much Lori for such a sweet remembrance & for always being there for me. I feel so blessed to count you among my dearest of friends & always look forward to hearing from you & reading your amazing blog!

Love & Hugs,

HGTV's 10 Most Pampered Pets

HGTV's 10 Most Pampered Pets

~ * ~ Sissy ~ * ~
I'm still here, haven't left the country or anything, but am battling a bug & not feeling like making pics & posting, so I'm taking the easy way out today & posting a few of my favorite pics of one of my favorite subjects, my bestest four-legged friend & little shadow, my Jack Russell Terrier, Sissy.

She was featured earlier in the HGTV's contest for America's most pampered pets. She was one of the top 10 winners! Personally, I believe she was number one!!! :0)

HGTV is now featuring the winners again, so click on the link below to see Sissy & all the other winners & runners-up, along with lots of great Fall decorating ideas!

I plan on posting pics real soon of some goodies the mailman brought me from my sweet friends, LORI, CONNIE, KAREN, AMY, & BERTIE, so stay tuned!

Now I'm on my way to find the Tylenol & sip some more Sprite!
