Christmas Decorations…

My big tree all lit up…

 My little tree redecorated

A little Christmas corner

 My olive wood nativity from Bethlehem, hand crafted in the Holy Land.  I found it for $1 at a garage sale.

My small snowman collection

These candles have been around since I was a kid… don’t have any holders for them at this time.  When I get some I will showcase them with my snowmen.

How many Christmas trees do you put up?
Today, I had to work in Russellville for a few hours.  Driving to Russellville from Paris, you tend to lose radio stations and phone service.   Well, I was in the company van, and the radio started cutting out.  So I turned the dial until I came across a clear station.   The station I found played nothing but Christmas music.  So, I sang along with Michael Buble, Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby and several others on the way to my destination.  🙂
My last question was, “What is your favorite Christmas memory?”  I would like to share mine with you.
My favorite Christmas memory is of when I was around 7 or 8 and things were tight and us kids new that the gifts would be slim.  Christmas morning I found no presents under our little silver tree.  It was set up on a big green box, so that it could be seen from the front window in our apartment.  
My mom read the Christmas story from the Bible, as is a tradition in my family.  When she was done, my dad said we may as well go ahead and take the tree down.   He lifted the tree off the box and asked me to take the big box out.  I pulled on that box and when I did, bunches of unwrapped toys tumbled out from under it!   My parents explained the love of Christ was shown through others donating the toys to us.   I’ll never forget that Christmas.  🙂

I guess that’s it for now.  

Have a great Thursday!!

God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
