May your hearth be warm...............

and your heart be full as you celebrate the true meaning of Christmas

"For to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, Christ the Lord!"

Joy to the World

JOY to the World! the Lord is come!

Let earth receive her King;

Let every heart, prepare Him room,

And heav'n and nature sing, And heav'n and nature sing,
And heav'n and heav'n and nature sing.

JOY to the earth! the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ,

Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

HE rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,

And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders of His love.


Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

Christmas on the porch

Living in Florida affords the luxury of wonderful weather. Enjoying the warm and sunny days, I opened the doors to the porch and set a Christmas table.

 The tool box arrangement was inspired by a post from the amazing Rosemary and Thyme when she shared a Christmas Home Tour.

I hope this Christmas season is a joyous one for each and every one of you.

A Christmas wedding

Saturday my daughter hosted a wedding shower for her best friend. With the house all decorated for Christmas, it added to the festive feel of the day. It was a fun transformation.

We began here -

Then the food trays were set out, the punch bowl filled, and the people arrived.

And the ladies enjoying the fruits of our labor.

She is a beautiful bride to be, and we will sorely miss her sweet presence.

We love you Laurie. Our heartfelt best wishes as you start your new life with your knight in shining armor.
