Christmas can be a difficult time for finding the right gift for that hard person to buy for, or for the hostess that you really don't know that well.

Warning Stop! Don't make the same mistake every year. Read this chart and take it with you to the tree trimming store and you should end up with a professionally decorated looking tree! If that is what you are looking for...
Have fun decorating your tree this year!

In my younger days, I worked for the best floral shop in San Leandro, CA.
My Boss, was a very petite French Canadian woman called Marge.
She once commented in the late 80's that no one celebrated
Thanksgiving like they used to, the orders for Thanksgiving
arrangements were down and spirituality it made her sad.
Thanksgiving is a time to stop and say thank you to God and your family.
Just say Thank You.
Let's Bring Thanksgiving back!

My Grandfather, Christopher Turner, owned Barron Woolen Mills and he made the best sweaters, coats, and blankets.
He made one for each of us and when I had to throw it away (due to overuse)
I felt that I was loosing a part of my Grandfather.
I want to make something that the my kids and grandchildren would pull
out of the closet and think of me!
I think that I found one!
I am going to give you the link because there are several links to follow for the full pattern, Winter Blanket

Time to get out your old wreaths. What do you find? You wonderful wreath has missing flowers, fruits and ribbons.
That is exactly what happens to me every time, because the glue loosens over time. Plus the wreath could use a little sprucing up.
Well, let's take a look at what I have done.

Summer isn't over just yet! There are many good days and nights, especially now that it is almost fall. There will be a nip in the air and sitting outside will be delightful. I am not a fan of heat and humidity, my hair doubles in size and it curls in some unnatural ways. I must say I love fall! I do hang out outside a bit more in the fall so I like to add a little color. Wind Chimes are a good way to add color and some of these are a work of art, so, let's take a look. Some of them you can use as inspiration and some you will just have to droll over on pinterest.
