Just wanted to share a collage of some old pictures of Christmas' past!

Thanks Cindy for giving me some of these photos!
I treasure them!

I grew up in a small town in Arkansas and
was blessed to have my family and friends near.
I went to school with Lila and she has been such a help
and inspiration to me with my blog.

Love and Blessings to everyone.

*Christmas in Florida*

"Merry Christmas from Florida"

It's wonderful to spend time in Florida and everyone takes advantage of the
nice weather to decorate their houses.....inside and out.

Sparkly lights and golf cart parades! What fun!

I love putting out pretty things in my lanai on this baker's rack.

"Christmas Cheer"

Do you need to take a little time to relax during this festive season?
I have my list of blogs I visit but when I have a little time to relax ( or I'm just too tired to do anything else ), I love to visit Cynthia's Cottage and go through her list of blogs. She has such a wonderful varied list and they are updated so you can see which ones have new posts. Cynthia's blog is amazing, too and she is always so sweet to comment on everyone else's blogs! Thanks Cynthia!

Lallee's Cottage has a list that is dated, too! Love her blog, too!
THANKS Lallee!

And if you want to relax and watch the birds visit
Q's Corner. She has put together a magical delight for anyone that loves birds, music and nature. What a beautiful blog!

Thanks to all my blogger buddies and Merry Christmas!

"Just a few more Christmas treasures"

When I saw the beautiful decorations on
"Celestina Marie Designs" blog
I noticed a sweet little angel and realized I had one very similar.
But my hubby was quick to point out.....
mine doesn't have her halo!
That sounds like a craft project to me!

My pretty little angel.....

and other Christmas treasures.
