♥ The Shelf is Up and Bathroom Pics ♥

Hello everyone!
Stush just put my shelf up and I was so excited...especially to decorate it for Christmas:) I may tweak it later but for now this is okay. We have tall ceilings in the livingroom so placing it just so much work...I wanted it up high enough so that I could at some later date hang a prim towel from one of the pegs so I didn't want it to low to the couch bet yet again I didn't want it up to high, Stush said it looks bare now because I took all the pictures down but you know how you get when you want to change something to more prim.lol Here's a closer look...
I love the crock with the cinnamon sticks in it and the prim snowman, someday I hope all my snowmen will be prim♥ I also hope to paint in here in the spring!

The bathroom color has finally grown on me and I do like it now and I finally framed the sampler with Samantha's name...the tree is in a yellow ware bowl♥

I turned my crow towel around looks a little more Christmasy♥

I just added some greenery to the cabinet in here.

This is my entry way, I bought the holly garland at Jo Ann's for 1.98 they were all sold out of garland...I couldn't believe it:)

I shopped yesterday for hours at the mall then today I went with Michele just locally. Tomorrow I plan to wrap gifts all day:) I least I'll have three days of not doing anything but get ready for Christmas day:)
I hope all my blogging friends have a wonderful Christmas with their friends and family...you all mean so much to me. I love coming on here and reading of the ups and downs of each and everyone of you...thank you for sharing your lives with me.
~Merry Christmas! Just in case I can't get on here till after Christmas

    Everything looks just wonderful I love your new shelf. I see your snowman from Angie and your crock looks great. Your bathroom looks so prim and I love the color of the walls. Your stitchery is perfect in there. I'm going to Joannes hopefully on Monday so I'll see what ours has left. I have a 50% off coupon & need some 28 ct. aida cloth. I can't see to stitch the cross stitch designs on osnaberg. I just started wearing glasses for closeup. I want to wish you and your family a very blessed and Merry Christmas, my friend. Thanks for your kind words on my blog. You are a very special lady.


  8. Hi Rondell....love everything you have done.
