Happy Holiday

Our house renovations are complete. Including our porch being closed in! We moved the furniture in today. We are very excited.

I have really enjoyed reading everyone's blog the last couple of weeks and reading about all the holiday plans. Barb is visiting her sons for the holidays. Victoria at Bumble Beans is enjoying the city and had a beautiful snow last weekend. Finn also has neat pictures of the snow, it really looks like Christmas where she is. Even Tonya had snow and a new car even though it is buried under the snow. Lots of you are planning to travel for the holidays and lots are expecting family to visit them. I hope everyone has a wonderful time and remembers the real meaning of the holiday.

I have four wreaths at different places in the house and this is my favorite. I didn't have a place to hang it to I put it on the inside of the front door.

Don't you just love pre-lit trees!

We have a local nursery that sells the most beautiful poinsettias. I remember when you only got them from the florist. Over 35 years ago I so wanted one. My husband came home on Christmas Eve with one. They had some at his work and they drew for them and he won! I will never forget how beautiful it was.

We are having a bunch of family the day after Christmas. We are really looking forward to everyone being together.

Next week when things calm down I am sewing, taking time for myself.

Merry Christmas to all

I love that room addition, I grew up in a house with a big sun room on the front of it, it was so nice, that was my mom's favorite room. I can remember taking naps out there with the sun coming through the glass, making it so warm. I finally got my "new car" out of the drive yesterday. yippie I was driving all over town and for no reason, other than to be driving. haha

That is such a lovely room. I like my verandah but there is something about floor to ceiling windows. Yum! Enjoy your decor and the holiday time.

Your new porch is very inviting! What a great place to sit and sunbathe in the winter, maybe taking a stitch or two!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and are now taking some sewing time for yourself!

Have a peaceful New Year, filled with blessings and quilt-y goodness!
