The Last Pink Saturday of 2009!

The last Pink Saturday of 2009! Thank you Beverly (How Sweet the Sound) for hosting these wonderful Saturdays! I wanted to show you my pink tree when it was lit up with the pink candy lights. Isn't it cute?

And......I wanted to show you my newest Pink addition....I got a Pink soldering kit for Christmas from my sister, Bev! It came from Simply Swank! It is too cool!

And an adorable pink bag to keep it all in! It even has a crown on it! I also got some wonderful Pink Paris storage boxes from my niece, Starbucks gift card from my nephew, Pink Cupcake PJ's from My sis from Pajama Gram! They came in a cool pink mesh hat box....I love them! And some See's Sugar Free chocolates!!! YIPEE!

I will have to tell you about the Mississippi Mud Cake that my sister made from scratch! OMG! (and no it was not sugar free, but I saved up all my sugar so I could eat some!) It was a recipe from Paula Deen! The absolute BEST cake I have ever eaten!!!! That story for another post.

Don't forget to stop by Beverly's blog for a list of all the wonderful Pink Saturday participants! Hope you all had a blessed Christmas and wishing you all a safe and Blessed New Year! Becs

Merry Christmas Blog Friends! Have a Blessed Day...

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:11 (KJV)

I hope all of you have a great holiday. This is a bittersweet Christmas for us this year. Our Mother, although she is much safer now, is not at home with us this year. I thank the Lord for her and thank Him for finding a secure and loving place for her to be. We will go see her and spend some time with her, but it will be different this year.

I do appreciate the time we had with her and my dad and will spend time remembering our childhood christmas' What I am most greatful for this year is God's love for me; His blessing me with family and friends that are wonderfully faithful people; security and health! I am anxious for the new year and am waiting to see what He has planned for me.

Be safe and God Bless you! Merry Christmas from Kody (one of God's gifts of unconditional love) and Me!

Alice's Altered Tea Cup

The Mad Tea Party group recently had an altered tea cup swap (In which I am late getting mine off...) Being sick just put a tremendous damper on all my projects....

This tea cup is for KeKe and I will be mailing it out in the morning. It was challenging for me, just finding a vintage cup that I liked that wasn't too over the top. Most of the tea cups I like are very victorian and lotsa roses on them....

I found this Bavarian tea cup at one of my favorite antique stores and it was only $5.00 (it has a small chip on the cup) but since KeKe won't be drinking out of it, I didn't think Alice would mind.

I used paper millinery roses and shredded paper, netting, tulle and a pink feather and sat Alice up on the feather. I added glitter and trim and some rhinestones...It was fun...

Talk to you soon and if I don't talk to you before Friday...Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas!
