Christmas Decorating so Far...

Dining Room


Dining buffet area

Buffet close-up. Kind of blurry but took photos without flash so the twinkly lights would show... should have used a tripod but too busy to get it out! The paintings I did of our daughter when she was little. I'll take better photos of them later!


Kitchen window and sink area


A Studio Vignette - and my one purple tree

II've been listening to my new Josh Groban CD (thanks Sandy!) and his voice is so beautiful as he sings of Christ's birth. The words in those songs are so powerful, so amazing! The song, "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" .... Come and behold Him, O come, let us adore Him! God from God, light from light eternal, Only-begotten Son of the Father ... Sing, choir of angels, sing in exultation,
O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above! Glory to God in the highest!
-
"Child, for us sinners poor and in the manger,
We would embrace thee, with love and awe;
Who would not love thee, loving us so dearly?
-
Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning,
Jesus, to thee be all glory given;
Word of the Father now in flesh appearing!
O come let us adore Him! Oh come let us adore Him! O come let us adore Him!
Christ the Lord.

I hope my first message came through, My computer is doing WACKY things today, like only letting me type all words backwards. CRAZY. Anyway, it's typing right now. But Violet, your creativity is really blessing me. I LOVE to come to your site, all your beauty just makes me happy. So beautiful.

Oh my, I adore the purple tree as well as the gorgeous mirror. The wood appliques are an eye catcher.
Where did you find such a treasure?

Sweet Wishes,
