while my husband was deployed he bought me this broach. it is a real piece of a tree dipped in silver. it looked rather christmasy to me so i decided to make this shadow box it's home until those moments when i want to wear it. i like being able to look at and enjoy it this way. :)

just a few thoughts today,
i redid my little metal thing on the wall,
i feel like it needs more, maybe some red berry sprigs?
or curled sheet music? lol!
it's simple but i like it.

and this is my little silver reindeer, he makes me feel peaceful.
he just looks so free and joyful,
so i thought i'd share him with you!

and finally some verses of a passage we read at bible study today...

Love one another with brotherly affection.
Outdo one another in showing honor.
Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit,
serve the Lord.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
-Romans 12:10-13

little houses in the snow
a wreath of music and stars a little tree and my current obsession with curled strips of sheet music. it's all over my house. i enjoy the contrast of the green and cream.
and finally, my tv cabinet doors filled with paper snowflakes!
well, that's the newest in my christmas decor,
hope you enjoy it!

it's beginning to look like christmas in my house. sadly having grown up with snow and cold winters it doesn't feel much like christmas most days here in san diego. but i am trying to make my home warm and festive. this is our first year we will be at our own home since getting married. i was excited to get all my stuff out because there was a couple years of decorations that we hadn't used yet!
when i was ten i started to collect nutcrackers, i now have 12 of them. all different sizes and some uniquely themed. like the cowboy, i also have some snow men and a robin hood. :) well, just thought i'd do a little post on my christmas favorites. hope you're enjoying the season! God Bless!

so today was interesting. it was long, and overwhelming. however, i was able to laugh some stress away when i found my son on my bathroom counter. i wanted to be mad cause he was supposed to be in his room napping but how can you get mad at that? he painted his arms in red lipstick! oh, and by the way, i don't even wear lipstick! it was something i bought over a year ago that's been sitting in the back of my make up drawer ever since other than when i take it out to write a love note to my husband on the mirror.

something old and something new

This is a Flickr badge showing public photos from mazie7 tagged with banner. Make your own badge here.

something new would be my "joy" banner i made on fri for christmas. it looks a lot like my sister-in-law's october 25th post, but i promise you i didn't even see hers till this morning! the something old is the banner i made in august for my little gwen. it was a lot of work but a lot of fun and i am really pleased with how it turned out. :)
