Christmas Magic...

It's the most wonderful time of the year... and on the top of my favorite things list, in big bold letters is the word  CHRISTMAS!!

We have fires in the fireplace every evening this time of year..even if it is warm outside, the fireplace is burning. I love being in the kitchen making things like beef stew and chicken pot pies...best time of the year for comfort food!

This year we had an evening dessert Soiree' with cocktails and dear friends.  We were blessed to have the amazing group of 25 acapella singers from my son's school come and give us a private performance.  It was a Christmas gift for everyone.  Such incredibly talented teens sharing some of the most beautiful songs ever.  We all were moved to tears!  





I have been a busy girl creating holiday projects as well!  I adore making these vintage planter Christmas trees.  This one features a poodle planter and topper!





This is a vintage Italian angel I  embellished and sat within a bed of ornaments.  It was designed in a vintage pedestal dish.



This was a very favorite of my holiday creations... I found this vintage Tinkerbell in the bottom of a box of junk at a yard sale.  Her wings were bent in half but I just re backed them and embellished her to give her new life....


This is a vintage plastic deer who was not very attractive but glitter him up and.......



He becomes glorious!!



I assembled them all in place on the base of what was the box of a large round of Brie cheese...  It was the perfect base!  She was purchased and now lives in Jacksonville in the home of a dear friend so I will still get to visit her!



 Speaking of Jacksonville, my husband and I spent an incredible weekend with  friends for "A Black Velvet Christmas Dinner" at Randy and Kevin's on Sweet Cherry Lane.  Every detail was just SPLENDID and it felt like a Christmas before Christmas!





 I was so caught up in the bliss, I only took a few photos on my I Phone but my friend Karla captured all of the amazing details!   Visit her blog to view the beauty at karlascottage.typepad.com


The greatest gift of all is that of true friends... I cherish this more than any material thing this world has to offer.  Take the time this season to tell the special ones in your life how much they mean to you.  From my heart to yours, I wish you all the Merriest of Christmases ever!! xo
