LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Longest Post EVER !! LOL

WOW ! I cant believe it has been 11 days since my last post. My Bad !! lol. I had a few days still feeling under the weather. My stomach is still not quite healed. And I have been so busy trying to keep up with Christmas items . I thought I would share three vignettes in my home, with a theme. Can you guess what the theme is ?
STORAGE !! lol, That is the theme. lol. I realized that I really have a lot of dressers in our home. But what handy storage to hide all the junk you don't need, shouldn't have but cant quite seem to throw out. lol. Next , tomorrow is my Birthday. I will be 42. ( Am I brave or what , throwing that out there. ) You know it really does go way to fast after you hit thirty. I mean really. Just yesterday I was listening to The Cure, a size 2 and my biggest problems were what I was wearing. Now I need a cure, my thigh is a size two, and my biggest problem is what to wear. ( Some things never change. lol ) Anyhoo~ My sweet friend Celeste sent me such sweet hand painted goodies. Her roses are just awesome !! Look how sweet they are. Go check out her store.

My friend Katie sent me this BEAUTIFUL stocking. How cute is that ???? AND Cause she knows how much I love Sonie Ames, a paint study !! I am going to frame each of these tiny prints. Thanks Katie !!!! I love em !!
My Dearest friend Sharon sent me these neat old electric window Christmas candles. How cool are they ? I think she knows that they will get a coat of pink. AND she sent me some Vintage Millinery flowers and stamens !! Oh I am going to have fun with these !! Thank you so much my sweet friend !!


And finally, I have had a few more requests for my Tiny Ice Skater ballerina boxes. I really like the Peppermint Skater the best !! I am adding these to my Etsy store. Also a few cute snowmen for ebay.

I Promise to post sooner next time, I should never get so busy that I don't have time with friends. Hugs,
Rhea

LOL! I recognize the description of ageing. It sounded just like me!! 42 is not an age to be embarrased over. Im 33 but Ive allready experienced that the time is running now. Wasnt it august for just a few weeks ago?? Almost christmas, no kidding? I havent thought of buing christmaspresents when its only a few days left. My solution is to buy christmaspresent the whole year and save them, but then to remember what i bought and to whom.. /linnea-maria gorgeous treasures by the way
