Wow, I must be busy or something....

I haven't posted anything for a while and I apologize!  It's been crazy busy and my work has taken me away from home for longer periods of time.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this Christmas season.

I've been trying to do too many things at once and sometimes it builds.  On top of that, my 19 1/2 year old kitty is dying.  She's such a sweet old gal and I love her.  I'll miss her when she's gone.


Here she is just a year or so ago.  She's looking a bit older here, but you can see in her prime she was a beautiful old kitty.

Thank you for hanging in there with me! 

Merry Christmas everyone!  Blessings and love,
Colleen

Votives Holders with Apple/Peach Votives Yum!

There is nothing like the scent of a wonderful candle. Especially those that evoke wonderful memories of days gone by. I decorated these little votive holders and added the yummy scented apple peach votives to them for my Etsy Shop. I popped them up this evening and they are adorable.

I think they make perfect gifts for neighbors, bus drivers, postmen and women, anyone who enjoys a smile and a friendly reminder that they are special, needed, and appreciated.

Thanks for stopping by! Praying all is well with you and yours! Merry Christmas!

Winter is Upon Us

Burrrrrr!  It's getting cold outside.  When we moved to Georgia from Washington State we couldn't believe how much sunshine there was.  Everyday, we would wake up to warm, bright sunshine.  For those of you who are used to this...congratulations, for us who grew up in the Pacific Northwest, it was a phenomenon.

Then winter came...let me tell you the first Canadian front met us with quite a surprise.  We had been out the weekend before planting, yes planting...sleeveless shirts, shorts, laughter...then SHOCK!  It blew in out of nowhere...colder than I've ever felt it...wind whipping, frost biting, unbelievable...we laughed and laughed...couldn't believe our new home could be so cold!


This is the back patio during one of our first snows!  Beautiful, fun to watch and oh so cold!

Time is Just Slipping By

It's hard to believe, but we are already at the 4th of December!  Is that incredible or what?  It's a crazy time and often we forget the real meaning of Christmas and the blessings it holds for us.  I'm proud to say that I'm a Christian and this time of year brings to rememberance the gift of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I remember Him all year long, because He is with me everyday, every step of my journey here, but Christmas expounds on His coming and the gift He brings.

May we always remember the Christmas Blessing and all there is in it! 

Blessings and Joy everyone!
