Happy Holidays Ya'll!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday and survived all the turkey and stuffing, Black Friday and Shop Small Business Saturday!  I think I have.  I crashed and burned last night and have done my Christmas decorating splashes today along with housework and laundry.  I will be working in retail right up through Christmas Eve, so no tree for this girl.  I'm leaving Christmas Day for the Bahama's!!  Two hours and twenty minute non-stop flight to warmth and sand, so I guess you could say all I want for Christmas is a really good tan!!!  Yes, it really is a song! 

I thought I'd share what little decorating I've done.  I made everything myself, the wreaths, arrangements, everything.  Spent very little dollars, just used things I already had, nature things, and picked up a few things at the Dollar Tree.

My front door and porch.  The pot on the left is white pine trimmings, magnolia branches and holly trimmed from my yard.


Backdoor...


Kitchen door.... okay, I lied, I did not make this.  But I have to have something flat to fit on this door...


Entry hallway...


Dining Room table....


Kitchen table....


What I'm calling my tree.... and that's about it.  I know all of you all will be doing over the top decorating and I can't wait to see all of them. I will check in on everyone as time permits.  I try to read all your posts, but I am really behind on commenting and posting....  Hope everyone has a wonderful creative week!!

Hugs,

I hope to visit:

Tell Me About Yourself Award!



 
I received this award from Grace @ http://growing-old-with-grace.blogspot.com/2011/10/i-received-tell-me-about-yourself-award.html.   Thank you Grace!  It was fun getting to know you a little better.  I apologize for taking so long to post this...  please forgive me.  I am also posting this for Ricki from Art @ Home who also received this award.  I hope you will visit her here: http://ricki-treleaven.blogspot.com/2011/11/my-happy-list-32.html

 
You are suppose to forward this to 15 other bloggers, but all my closest blogging buddies have already been awarded and I know how every one's time is now with the approaching holiday.  So if you feel so inclined to do this, please do so, I would love it if you did.  It is always great getting to know all of you a little better.

 
Seven things about me:  (I'm really pretty boring y'all!).

 
  1. I am a "Merle" girl.  (I have used Merle Norman cosmetics and skin care products since I was approximately 20 years old and now I am a Beauty Consultant at our local Merle Norman Studio here in Bardstown.  I have worked there part-time for the past 5 years.
  2. I drive a big black 4-wheel drive, four door Ford F-150 pick up truck and I love it.  I don't know what I'd do without it. 
  3. I own a Kodiak 4-wheeler ATV and love riding on it and feeling the wind in my hair and on my face!!  I don't go real fast and I stay pretty much on safe ground.
  4. I use to own a cafe' in Bardstown called "The Spicy Lemon Cafe" and was featured in the "Southern Lady" magazine.
  5. I worked in Corporate America for a total of 27 years!  Hence, why I went crazy and opened a cafe'!
  6. I am truly a Southern Girl!  I was born in Knoxville, Tennessee in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains.  I love the mountains and go back as often as possible.  (Plus I love sweet tea or as we call it, "the house wine of the south")!
  7.  I have one sibling, a brother who is 26 months older and everyone has always believed we are twins.  (He made me the tomboy I am today)!

I hope you all will give this a try.  It's actually a little difficult, but fun.  Thanks Grace and Ricki for challenging me.
 
Have a happy week!
 

Crash Week-End and Recharge!

Things have been so crazy busy with the approaching Holidays in the "retail" life, that I've not had very much blogging time.  I had the day off today and went in for a haircut and spending a nice quite evening with a green salad, with roast chicken breast and a glass of red wine.  Won't be long until bedtime because the fun begins tomorrow for the rest of the week.

So, I thought I'd share how I spent my Saturday evening and Sunday...

I watched the full moon come up over the fall bare trees...

I sat around the fire pit and allowed the blazing fire to put  me into a total relaxation state of mind...

Had a sweet visit from my sweetie Jacyln....

We call her Camo Baby now...

Saw an amazing sky....

So now, I'm recharged and ready for the busy rest of the week!

Hope you have a happy day and week...
