I’ve been blogging for a very short time, around 3 months or so. It has become a hobby of sorts. I love trying to find new things to capture with my camera and share with everyone out there. Some days are so hum drum and ordinary. However I have been enjoying, browsing through blog land for quit a while. One day, when I had a little time to surf the net I accidentally found the blog world by searching for pictures of Shabby Chic Homes and anything pink. I’ve been HOOKED ever since. I truly enjoy all the blogs about decorating, bargain hunting and the making of a warm life though the eyes of my fellow bloggers. I seldom leave comments but on occasion I have felt lead to leave a “Thank You” for a wonderful journey.
I myself don’t receive many comments as will, but look forward to checking everyday to see if any one has left one. It’s kind of like the tooth fairy. I recently posted a movie from that I found on a fellow bloggers page {sorry, can’t remember who}that I thought would be really nice to share. However not every one liked it. That’s okay; I realize that people form all over the world surf just I do, however I didn’t think someone would take the time out of their day just to be rude. I look forward to reading any comments that it was hurtful to read a comment that was anything but nice and it was left anonymously at that. I understand that my blog may not be of any interest to some people and it may even be boring to some but please just move on, because this is a big world and I’m sure there is something that won’t put you to sleep. I believe in the saying “If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.” Especially if you don’t have the gust to put your name on it!

Simply Beautiful

I came across this video and thought you might enjoy it as much as I did.Make sure and turn off the other musice before playing.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. It’s really been busy around here; Christmas day was a great success, our family decked the hall a few times. I have a few photos of my Mothers beautiful home on Christmas day. She has such a flare for decorating and making a home feel loved.

This is the tree Grandma puts up just for Baby Ava

you can see all the sweet little angles under the tree

I wounder where Moms gold fish went?

I love this picture because in the back ground , you can see the sheets drying in the warm December sun.

Everywhere I looked there was signs of Christmas

The kids started early on the games and of course, there was a hole lota silliness going on

I do believe everyone was pleased with all their gifts

I loved all of my fabulous gifts, but honestly one of my most treasured is form my dear Sister, Yvette, even filled this beautiful apothecary jar with peppermints and a pretty peppermint bow

It is a tradition in our family to end the evening with a Bon fire and fire works

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family to yours

Please Read Part 1 First

After returning home, the work began. Donnie and I had a lot of stuff to get together for Church and Christmas with our son tomorrow. I did a little straightening up and got the Banana Bread in the oven while Donnie worked on the Candied Pecans. Donnie and I nibbled on some supper while I managed to get the rest of the wrapping finished. All the church clothes are ironed and ready for our mad rush in the morning. OH, I mustn’t forget about Donnie’s Famous Home Made Pig in the Blankets. Will I know I’m forgetting something but it will just have to wait. I hope you have blessed evening and charmed Sunday.


This is pure and simple banana bread, heavy, moist, and dark.

3 ripe bananas, well mashed

2 eggs, well beaten

2 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 teas. salt

1 teas. baking soda

1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a loaf pan. Mix the bananas and eggs together in a large bowl. Stir in the flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Add the walnuts and blend. Put the batter in the pan and bake for 1 hour. Remove form the pan to a rack, Serve still warm or cooled.





Well that's a wrap friend's. Just think there is still 3 more days until Christmas.

Part 1 Pre-Christmas Feast

Welcome to a sneak peek of our Pre-Christmas Get together on Saturday Aaron,Me,Donnie,Calum and Josh{standing}

Wow What A Day!

I hope you all had a charmed day. This day has been wonderfully full; it almost felt like three days in one. It started with a quick shopping trip with my parent on the way to my Great Aunt City’s and Uncle Boots’s home for a Pre-Christmas Feast. My Dad dropped Mom and Myself off at JCPenny’s, while He waited in the car. I guess he thought that would make us spend less. Hehe Mom and I can cover a lot of area in a little time.

I know that three days before Christmas is not exactly the time to be shopping for myself BUT , there was a sale on purse’s and I have been having withdrawals. I picked up this fabulous bag for Me Me Me.

This bag is as big as a dippar bag

At 20 something this would make a good dippar bag , but at 40 something , I hate to say it but it still makes a good dippar bag or depends bag. hehehe
After a little shopping we made a few more stops and off to Aunties we went. Here are a few pictures of our Pre-Christmas feast.

Finger Food!!

Will friends, there will be a part 2 to this post because like I said this day was very full of pre-Christmas activities.
