reindeer antler shadow on this very wall

I just SO happened to see the blogroll before I signed out for the day, and when I saw your new post, I just HAD to come over!

Room by room, I could feel the thrill of knowing you, my faithful and constant friend and partner (as with Penny!) in creation. WOW. Your hearth is ready to glow the warm flames of the season and is embellished with YOUR MAGIC! From the paintings (love the little one's antler magic) to your gorgeous kitchen, you have warmed my senses today.

Then as I scrolled down to see the ticket; oh my friend, I am so looking forward to this experience with all of you! And to see your sneak-peak (do you know that we both have the same chandelier ornament, but I used it a bit differently) OOOOH!I LOVE YOUR GRAY CURTAIN!!!!!!

This is exciting. And you know that my prayers have not ceased and will continue. I go back to work tomorrow EARLY in the morning for a meeting then after school. But my post is just about done and I am ready with my opera glasses and theatre garb. Que le spectacle commence! XOXOOX

As I sit here gazing at the beauty of it all, my heart skips a beat.. Your home is so beautiful, and now adorned with your beautiful artwork, and Christmas touches in every nook.

I will be there on the 5th... Would not miss this for the world.
I will need a ticket for little Bebe also.

Good Sunday evening magical Violet. I delight in joining you and creative friends in the 5th of December. Your home for the holidays is enchanting, magical, delightfulling captivativating.

Hi Violet,
Thank you for what's the beginning of spending the holidays here with you. Love all the sparkly trees, and the glitter of golds, it's such a Merry Christmas over here. Love the peek into your theatre, and cannot wait to see the complete production. I too have my ticket ready for for the production.

Looking forward to seeing you and the girls in our theatrical show.

Joyeux Noël

I just had to come by again. I went on to your Instagram and saw the magic of those HAIRY BOOTS and our sweet Dazzle girl, the one and only FURRY DOGMOTHER. She is precious.

I just wanted to come for more magic in your lovely home. Thinking of you my dear friend! Anita
