Merry Christmas 2013

 Christmas is forever, not for just one day
For loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
Like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself. 
 ~Norman Wesley Brooks

My beautiful  grandchildren!

2 Days Until Christmas

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope
The spirit of Christmas which is peace
The heart of Christmas which is love.

Handcrafted Snow Angel

 This angel was at the craft store and I fell in love with it and decided I would make it.
  A lady standing next to me said that if  I made one she would buy it...so I did and she did!! 
 This is the angel I made.

This one is a little different from the original design as she can be put 
on top of a Christmas tree she is open on the bottom.  The original 
was done on styrofoam and could only sit on a table.  It is made
with deco mesh....this is the first time I've worked with it.

Now I have another order to deliver on Monday!

4 Days Until Christmas

 Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. 
 To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy,
 is to have the real spirit of Christmas.  
~Calvin Coolidge, 1927

Christmas Flowers at Phipps Conservatory

Have not been to Phipps to see the flower show in a long time.  This year my sister Kathy and her husband Jim where visiting from Alaska ... so we went to Phipps in Pittsburgh to see the Christmas Flowers.  It was very beautiful so I wanted to share a few photos with you.

 Christmas Tree reflection in water!
This was the only way to get the whole tree in the picture.

 I took hundreds of photos later I'll show you all the orchids they were beautiful!

even when you're home.

6 Days Until Christmas

 I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. 
 ~Charles Dickens

7 Days Until Christmas

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.  
~Laura Ingalls Wilder
