There are times I get an idea in my head and I go for it. I wanted to ModPodge a white wig form. As I placed more and more pieces of cut outs from fashion and food magazines, the more the head gained artsy personality. Well, I put her on Facebook and the reaction was mixed.They either loved it or hated it. One friend even asked WHY? What do you think?
Wanted to share this beautiful book with lovely pictures. This explains the celebration of Christmas down through the centuries and how the holidays evolved in America. It also explains the re-enactments in Williamsburg, Virginia and how many tourists come each year to experience Christmas there. A few crafts and recipes are included.
It's always nice to read the history of Christmas traditions. Wouldn't it be nice for everyone to write and create their own traditions book to share with children and the grandchildren? Do you have traditions or find yourself just getting through the holidays? Julia and I are at the point where we figure a pizza and movie is more our speed. We've been alone the past 2 Christmas',we've started our own Mommie and Me tradition. It's cheaper and drama free.
We do love going to Christmas service at Skyline Church. Worshipping, singing and counting all our blessings!
Whatever traditions you follow and experience may you cherish those memories and write them down, pass them along ,starting your own traditions book!
I know its not even Thanksgiving however while perusing the blogger world,I stopped by Burlap + Blue and came across really beautiful Christmas decorations.Really the only reminder for me,Christmas was near is Starbucks changing into holiday cups.Funny that's my red flag so to speak. Julia and I really don't celebrate the Holidays.Could it be our living arrangement again this year or scarred by family drama? Chuckle. Its not so bad.We make it our own special time together or at Church. Now back to Burlap + Blue
When do you start decorating? After Black Friday? A friend,explained for the first few years her Husband tolerated her decorating before Thanksgiving yet finally told her wait till December 1st. It still hurts her heart!
How can you not wait to put this on display?
There was so many more wonderful pictures! Visit them when you get a chance.

I purchased a locket last summer and received so many compliments she wanted one. Being the budget thirty shoppers we are ,we saved to purchase a distributor kit. Here are some random pictures. I'll link the website from a regular computer - on my IPhone which limits my link ability.I'm so behind in the new age technology arena ;it's shameful.
I get by however there's so much more to this IPhone. For as expensive as it is it should come with its own IT guy.
