Broken China & a little Sound of Music

I made a necklace out of one of my favorite plates that met an untimely death. I seriously love this pattern, so I'm so happy to see it live on as something beautiful. It's made from an antique Blue Willow plate. Have a friend who loves this pattern? Why not get them a unique Christmas gift that is personal and special.
It comes with the chunky chain.
Also unique is my Swiss cross/Edelweiss necklace straight from Switzerland. My husband has a friend who just returned from a trip there, and he gave me this beautiful paper. I immediately saw it as a necklace. The word underneath means cross. The reverse side features the Country's flower, edelwiess. You may remember the song from the Sound of Music. It happens to be one of my all-time favorite movies.
We just finished watching Little Women, the newer version. It's my daughter's favorite. We love, love, love it. It makes me want to make popcorn and cranberry garlands like we always did at Christmas time. It's the simple things that stand out. I couldn't name the presents I received every year, but I always had fun making memories of the things we did together. Enjoy your special memories, and don't forget to make new ones.

Warm hugs & a cup of hot chocolate~

Christmas is coming!

Hi everyone! Are you as excited as I am that Christmas is just around the corner? Yes, I know that causes a certain amount of stress, but hey, it's time to enjoy the season. I want to celebrate Jesus' birthday, the fact that He even came to die just amazes me. It is the greatest gift we could ever be given. He gave Himself. In the midst of shopping, wrapping, decorating, cooking/baking, I hope you do take the time to remember why we do it all. It gets so trite to hear "Jesus is the reason for the season", so I don't want to hear that without truly feeling the meaning.
My Mom has a Nativity that sits on a small round table. My daughter's favorite thing to do is sit and play with it. She could play with it for hours on end. She always talks for the characters, and acts out the story. It is such a beautiful thing to watch. I love it.
