Oh Christmas tree!

Our tree is filled with lots of color...
and some sparkle too!

it shares little messages...

holds some of our favorite things...

ornaments made by the children...

they are the ones I cherish most and look
forward to seeing each year...

it's a very special tree to us-
a bright and happy tree...
our family tree.

and did you spot the painting below?

it's a surprise gift from my dear friend, Becky!
she is so talented! she just recently opened her darling shop...
filled with her beautiful work...

when I opened my gift I just cried- happy tears-
all the details of this painting have such special meaning!
(which Becky knew!!)
see the glitter??

Oh! it's just perfect!...
and it has already made this Christmas one I will never forget!
Thank you (again!) sweet friend...YOU are truly a gift!

Happy Monday!
Many Blessings!

  5. gorgeous tree, i still have to finish ours!!!

  6. Jill - It's all so beautiful. I think I say this in every comment, but I truly mean it. The tree is amazing. I love the painting, what a sweet and meaningful gift.

    And the goodies in your previous post are delightful. I adore the cross necklaces. I need to e-mail you a photo of this great little cross plaque I picked up in Nashville this past weekend. It's a beautiful cross painted on wood moulding scraps. How simple (and cheap) and it's just the cutest thing ever...think Bella Vita.

    I purchased a few to give to friends and now I'm thinking next year, I'll just get some scraps at Lowe's and make my own, so I can choose my colors.

    I hope you have a great Christmas. We must meet for lunch sometime!
