A Little Sparkle, A Little Joy.....

It's been a busy time around my home this last week. There's been a whole lot of glueing and glittering. Alot of the girls are making these beautiful trees for Christmas, and I sure didn't want to miss out. So, I made a bunch and put them out on my Etsy. Of course, I'll be making more for myself, as well! I think I am at my happiest when I am in the midst of my chaotic creations! LOL! Such a mess I make. Are there any neat artists out there? Tell me your secrets to keeping an organized work space.

In addition, I've shown some pictures of other Etsy items I just listed today. The sweet feather fans, and the angel planter. And don't miss my flock of birds (I call them sisters).

I promise there are more items to list on Etsy. Linens, including a beautiful linen bedspread (white on white), with great basket embroidery. It is a true beauty.

Thanks for stopping by; and to all of my U.S. friends, here is wishing you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving. We have much to be thankful for and are blessed in so many ways.

God Bless and I'll Be Seeing You Soon,

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful... ~ Norman Vincent Peale

Isn't it true? How Christmas just casts its magic spell and colors over our world, for such a short time. My goal is to get alot of the hectic Christmas prep done early this year (yes, I know, I say that every year). But, I truly want to save a bit of time just to enjoy and watch, and breathe in the sights and smells of this beautiful Christmas season. Really trying to focus on the birth of our Saviour, the true meaning of this blessed season.

I've captured a number of pictures, mostly from Flickr, for you to view that might help us move into a "bit of magic", "a bit of calm" and a "bit of peace". Thanks to all of those Flickr photographers that allow us to enjoy their art...

Enjoy and blessings to all,
