Sometimes...

...when you least expect it - somebody jus' makes your day. I have been blessed in my life with many wonderful friends - who are all so very good to me. But a few weeks ago - a gift arrived - a beautiful gift but an unexpected one. Dear Tracy - with a touching story of her own - gave me this beautiful platter 'cause she said "It looked just like you". Well, she is right - and she knows me well - it is perfect in my home and I will cherish it always. Thank you Tracy!

Merry Christmas friends!
Have a beautiful day!

What a wonderful friend! That is a beautiful platter! Your tree is just awesome as is all your decor. I want my house to look like yours, seriously! I may have to find me some black and white checked curtains like those in the picture. Love them!

What a sweet and beautiful gift!
I must say, your tree is gorgeous!
I love how you used black & white gingham ribbon on your tree to match your curtains! And the green ornaments look so great with it!
Just beautiful....
