Holiday Tables

Sharing some pretty holiday tables.

Do you dress your tables for the holidays? I find this is one of the easiest ways to decorate for the seasons. Enjoy the beauty of the season.

Wait for Me - a review

Let me begin by saying I did not read the first books in the series. Although, looking back I did read the novella that was to be the intro to this series. "Wait for Me" by Susan May Warren is apparently the conclusion to the Montana Rescue series. I had a hard time keeping up with all the back story about the different characters. It was a slow read for me, with too much description, until about page 140 when the pace picked up with a search and rescue. Maybe if I had read the other stories, it would have held more interest for me.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are my honest opinion.

Snarky trees

There are many older trees in our neighborhood. Some have odd twists and turns.

But the pond at the end of the road always shares a lovely sunset.

Family treasures

Let me introduce to you the very beautiful china pieces that were painted by my mother in law.

My hubby's mother started china painting after all of her children were grown.

I'm sure she thought it was just a hobby to fill her "empty nest".

But she became quite good at her art, and continued painting for over 30 years.

She dabbled in painting glass, and has painted some very beautiful lamps.

She enjoyed it so much that she started teaching some of her friends. She even tried to teach me!

Several years ago she became ill, and was not able to continue to paint.

My mother in law passed away six years ago, so the paints, pallet, and china sit silently now.

I know many people think that painted china is very old fashioned. But I dearly love these, and have enjoyed these many pieces. They are a remembrance of my MIL's artistic gift, and a family treasure to be passed down to my own children one day.
