My Christmastime.......

 Well, first a look at why I can't get anything done around here.  I just can't stop looking at this face.  Never knew how much I could love this little guy....... It has been a crazy month for me, and I can't believe this is the first post I have done in December.  Where has the time gone???? Earlier in the month my son was in a wedding in Savannah, Ga, and I was a lucky duck to get to travel with them to take care of the baby.  Still pinching myself I got to spend all that time with them.  Then a very sweet friend of mine for many years passed away early last week.  She was such a dear and sweet friend and I miss her already.  I totally missed posting pictures of Lakewood this month, so they are included.  But, I was very disappointed Lakewood had been really booming for me the last 7 or 8 months, I really loved my booth this month, but it was like no one came, like the doors were locked.  Oh well, staying positive for next month.  Also, I finally ventured out to make some pictures of our white Christmas here.  How lucky was that???? Hope you enjoy and I hope to get better at posting. 

I bought this little chair in Texas from Alice, finally got it over to my
upholster, how cute is it?!!!! I know you are drooling Theresa Smith!!!!!!!

Our front entrance to our house, in the snow...........

Merry Christmas everybody!!!!!!!

Country Living Fair 2010, Stone Mountain, GA

Hey y'all, today I headed down to Stone Mountain to the Country Living Fair.  My friend Victoria has been talking about this show for a year and I just had to check it out.  And I am glad I did cause there was a little bit of Texas there........First stop Carolyn Westbrooks Home........I love the way Carolyn decorates and miss her so much now that she no longer comes to Lakewood.  She is such fun.  I kept having to remind myself to move on, cause I just wanted to stay and talk to her and laugh, she's a hoot.........

and next Miss French Vanilla, herself was there, Peg and John VanDyne, always a show stopper....

Sue Whitney was sporting a skirt made by the guy who sells the British Transit signs, too cute.......
