the last candle burning.....

the days are colder ..... they are long ...... darkness falls ..... 
the last candle burning ....... & ......... a new year begins ....... 
"for I know the plans I have for you ....... " Jer. 29:11

magical Christmas...

those were magical days ......... the one day we all looked forward to at Mamaw & Papaw Hill's 
when it was known that the moment you entered through the back porch door, you were entering a land of a "magical Christmas"........ everything covered in glitter, tencil, ice cycles, brightly covered wrappings ........ walking in to the kitchen , where " big red hot dogs were boiling in a white enamel pan "..... hard. colorful candies & huge chocolate drops on the counter ......... if you listen close you will hear Christmas music playing on the radio............  into the dining room, where Mamaw's Christmas cards were carefully hung on a tiny little clothesline she draped criss cross throughout the room ........... heading in to the living room ....... i can still smell the sweet scent of Papaw's tobacco....... but my breath is taken away at the dancing of silver little glistening all over the living room, the cedar tree all decked out with as much sparkle as any tree can handle....... while Lawrence Welk is playing on the tv , that sits beside the old cardboard fireplace, with its fake little fire!!!

............................ i am blessed indeed!

MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIENDS!

the tiny little things.....

she loved working on the tiny things .....  the tinier the better for her ....... i on the  the other hand would throw those tiny little things across the room ...........................  then i ran across a tote with her projects inside ...... remembering a time when little angel pins ... Santa ... doll ... bunnies were " the thing " during the 80's ......... my partner .... my encourager .... my perfect Momma ....... maker of tiny little things !
 .................................. i am blessed !

a twinkle of light......

sometimes we only need a little twinkle.......&........., sometimes we need a burst of bright lights!
i am a twinkle kinda gal ...... give me a slight little twinkle in the window & i am smitten........when we purchased our first home (this one for 41 years) ...... the first thing  i wanted ..... was window lights ( then they we're the ivory plastic ones from Christmas) ....... a sign of welcoming friends ....a safe place ..... a place of comfort ........ i never tire the sweet peace they give me as i walk into the room .....  


 i am so blessed!
