The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
This is my very favorite time of year ~ lots going on this month. Decorating, shopping, baking, shopping, my birthday, shopping, & did I mention shopping?!?!?
Please note the sugared pink angel ornament from my sweetest lil sis, Amy of Bunny Rose Cottage on my crystal butter dish. I have another one hanging on my tree! They smell yummy! The precious Nativity Set was from my equally precious PRH sis, Rhea of Sweet N Shabby Roses! The compote is filled with handpainted balls from another of my PRH friends, sweet Jen of Jennifer's Petal Palace. I have come to love her quiet, sweet ways so much, but it is funny that I purchased these ornaments from her several years ago, long before we really "met"! Now we are all in the same decorating group!

I have so many things that remind me of my dear friends that I have met through the blogs & my PRH group. Everywhere I look, I smile & feel loved! I even used the little package decoration that you mailed my gifts in, Rhea, on my little demitasse cup & saucer. Just another sweet reminder of you!
My dear friend & "neighbor" to the south of me, Vickie of Visuals by Vickie, sent me this stunning leaded glass angel! And a very talented neighbor & adorable friend, Celeste of La Rea Rose, painted my precious pink Santa ~ it is a gourd!!

I'll be posting more pics of our home as I get more decorating done. You wouldn't believe how many totes are coming down out of the attic!! Hubby can't believe it either! He is the one that has to rummage around to find them all! :0)

Your house always looks so lovely. I had to scroll down and look at wedding pics again. They are so pretty. Do you have any of the reception with the centerpieces. Don't think I've seen those yet.
