Our Christmas Tree (trees)

Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, and didn't stuff yourselves TOO much with Turkey and all those yummy trimmings :) We had Thanksgiving over at my sister's house this year, and the food was DELISH!!

Friday night I got our tree out of storage, and put it up and decorated it...this year I have place it in the center of where the French Patio door is. I usually have it either to the left or right, but didn't feel like rearranging the wicker furniture, so decided on this placement. Definitely less of a hassle!

Below are some pictures for you to see that I took earlier, of our Dining Room tree, and also some of my pink tree which I display in our living room. Feel free to click on any of the pics to get a larger view if you like :)

This tree skirt I won on Ebay about 3 years or so ago from the talented Rebecca, of A Gathering Place, and I just LOVE it!!!

These next few pictures are of the decorations that I have in our Living Room... Below is the Pink Tabletop tree...

Thanks for stopping by....I'm off to get that pile of laundry finished that's been WAITING for me, lol :) And my boys are letting me know that they are getting hungry for some lunch...my oldest, Brian, is home from Collage for the weekend, so I have to make sure he gets plenty of home cookin' before he heads back up later this afternoon :)

Until next time!

Giveaway Ends Tomorrow & Fabulous Vintage Ornaments!

Happy Friday everyone! Just a quick little reminder that my Christmas Stocking Giveaway ends tomorrow...If you haven't had a chance to enter it yet, there is still time! The lucky winner will be chosen from one of the comments left on the Giveaway post, which you can go to HERE to do so. So leave those comments ladies, you never know, it might just be the winning one!

Also, my shipping special that I have currently going on in my Etsy shoppe will end tomorrow as well, so if you want to save $$ on shipping, I do still have a few pretty stockings left in my shoppe :) Just click the link over on my sidebar.

I stopped at a local Resale Shoppe, called Love, Inc., and they had a ton of christmas items out for sale, and I was lucky to spot a bag with these sweet beauties inside, for just $1 !! Yup, I couldn't grab them up fast enough! I think my favorite is the one shaped like a pinecone..

And, thought I would show you ladies my Christmas tree from last year...this is our big tree, and I always put it up in the Dining room. This year I'm trying to decide if I want to put it in the same spot, or perhaps move it over to the other corner of the French Patio door ?

Well, that's all for today....I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I'll be announcing the winner of my Giveaway on either Sunday or Monday, so be sure to check back :)

Rosey Chocolate Cups for Tea Tuesday

Hi Everyone, I made it, though just for a brief time, for Tea Tuesday this week!! I'm still busy working in my sewing room creating pretty items for this Christmas Holiday decorating. Right now I'm working on a sweet little accent pillow, done in pretty pink fabrics, of course, LOL :) I should have it finished later today and listed over in my Ebay shoppe.

There are less than 5 days left to enter my Christmas Stocking Giveaway....if you haven't had a chance to enter, then please do hop on over HERE to leave your comment on that post....the winner will be chosen from one of those comments. And the 20th is the last day to take advantage of the Special that I have going on in my Etsy shoppe...ONLY $2.50 for U.S. Priority mail shipping on ANY stocking purchased. After that day the price goes back up to $5.00.

Okay, now on to my Tea Post. I have to confess.....I am not a Tea drinker...I only drink tea if I happen to have a sore throat, as that particular beverage seems to soothe it. My FAVORITE and ONLY hot beverage that I love to drink is Hot Chocolate. Please don't hate me :) Kinda strange...I love to collect teacups, but don't like to drink tea...what can I say :) So, for this week's post I thought I would share with you a couple of really lovely chocolate cups that have, of course, beautiful pink roses decorating them.

First, you will see the little vignette I set up this morning as the sun was coming up...

These cups are different, but very similar in style as they both have lovely pink roses, done in differnt styles, decorating them.,,

one of them even has some pretty roses along the inside rim...

Both have these markings on the bottom of the cups...

I've chosen my pretty pink and white rose Tea pot to go with them....

a delicate and dainty Vintage soft pink hanky with sweet crochet trim...

a pretty paper rose created by my friend Rhonda...click HERE to see her wonderful website...

and lastly, a lovely vintage crystal candleholder with shimmery prisms, and all these were placed on the wonderful Vintage mirror with scrolly metal frame that I found at Goodwill a couple weeks back. The frame was originally gold, but I spray painted it with my favorite Dover White by Krylon Fusion, and now she looks fabulous.

Thanks so much for stopping by my Tea (Chocolate) Post this week. I will try my best to visit your Tea posts thru-out the week :)

Here are the Tea Parties and their wonderful Hostesses that I am participating in:
