We had a small New Year's Eve Party. Well actually there were four of us.
I 'm sure you recognize Sam, that is me in the middle and Gabi on the other side of me. I seem to have misplaced my head...Did I mention I was going on a diet...and you were thinking, she looks pretty svelte for so soon after the holidays... No that is not Dave holding the flag.. Someone had to take the picture..
Just wanted to wish you a happy 2008!!

It is hard to believe that Christmas was yesterday and now I don't really have anything I must do. I can fiddle with this and mess with that and it's okay!! I love a party, a holiday, an event, anything you can get people together to and eat, laugh, dress up or decorate for... I think old age is creeping up on me because I'm ready to just hang out at home and revive after all the Christmas fun times.
I got a shot (obviously I wasn't the first) of these guys at the party. I bet Santa thinks twice, before landing on these people's roof again.
These are a few shots from my friend Diane's Christmas party. The woman on the left is Diane's friend Tracey, and the one on the right is our friend Martha http://www.blogger.com/www.vintagetrifles.blogspot.com I took lots of pictures at Diane's but I thought I should show you the one that included things Martha had made. She made the long stockings hanging on the mantle.
She made the sign above the lighted wreath.
She also made the scene in the jar and the vintage picture on the shelf above.
No doubt you have figured out I enjoy the decorating and entertaining that the holidays bring. However it is my opinion that babies make Christmas, starting with the very first Christmas...
It was so special having all my babies home for Christmas this year. Last year our oldest baby Dusty, was on deployment with the Navy. It leaves a hole in my heart when one is missing. We all spent time on the computer emailing back and forth, but its just not the same.
I'm sorry if you were missing your love ones this year. No matter how many Christmas Cookies you eat, it doesn't fill the void...

I am having another dinner party this Friday there will be 15 of us, so I will have to find some plates that will work with the clock faces and more silver trays....hmmm I guess I will have to check out some 2nd hand stores .... What I need to be buying is Christmas gifts, haven't thought too much about that yet. It gets a little old buying boy things year after year..did I mention I have 4 boys and a husband to buy for??? Wonder if any of them would be interested in getting table place settings this year???
These are the pictures taken of the guest room. I was inspired to redo it for the Open House.
I love the little glass lamps on the dresser, I got these at my friend Diane's Christmas sale a few weeks ago. I had been in love with them for along time. I am always so happy when I finally get something that I have admired for what seems like forever...I didn't notice I am in the mirror, I was going to say, "I won't be wearing this dress for Christmas," but I bet you could figure that out... Maybe the cowboyhat would work with the moo-moo..
The little pink chick above was made by Martha. I got it last spring but she fits right in for Christmas!!
The big boys made these in an art class a few years ago.. well actually...
18 years ago
I'm pretty sure the date on the back, etched in the plaster has to be wrong...
