Busy, busy time of year......


Hello friends!
What a busy time of year!
I love it all,
time spent with family and friends.

I have also been "puttering" around the house.
Crafting and fluffing!
I put this simple greenery together with a candle for sparkle.
(Don't worry! I do not leave the candle going in this unless I am sitting right there!)


I love the chippy wood.










I have also been busy out shopping with friends and my girls.
L~O~V~E Charming Charlie's.
Cheap jewelry with lots of sparkle.
They have gorgeous chandeliers through out the store.




Yesterday, it snowed.
I woke up before everyone else and grabbed my camera and the shovel.
Before the sun came up, it was surprisingly pleasant outside.
Animal tracks in the snow, the deer like to check out all of my bird feeders.








The deer have no problem jumping the fence.
See my little white Christmas tree? I love it!




A cottontail in the thicket.



 I shoveled the walkway and driveway to surprise my husband, he surprised me by having breakfast all made!
It's the little things that really matter. I love to do special things to make his day better and he does the same for me, too.

As I was going back inside, the sun was just starting to come out, it was gorgeous with all the freshly fallen snow.



May you and yours have a most wonderful and blessed holiday season.
