Happy New Year friends...:)

2010 wasn't filled with the wonders I had longed for but alas there were many blessings and I am thankful.

May 2011 be generous to us with many good blessings, joy in our hearts, the continued safety and love of our families...and  peace.

Wishing the company of those you love and a wonderful shared New Year's Day dinner :) ours is a traditional Black Eyed Peas cooked with Christmas Country Ham, collards and yummy baked sticky Sweet Potatoes and butter...of course, hot rolls dripping with butter....and Southern Sweet Tea!!

Christmas Tree ....finally:)

This is my tree and picture I took with my dd-s  camera...wasn't comfy with it but she offered to loan it before the season passed and I had no picture of my tree for my blog:)
My son left and I could not find the rest of our old treasured ornis or hubby's and my own old toys....these are a few that were in the tree bag. No strung popcorn or cranberries either...alas,  not my usual sweet tree but, amazingly looking at her in the corner now standing proudly atop two very old suitcases (covered by old quilt) she is twinkling and shinning ever so prettily with no other lights on ...hope someone knows who made the doll...there are no marking or signings at all on her. She was sold at The Wharf a lovely quaint antique shop in local Smithfield, VA.   about 5 years ago.  I did see one just like her on a blog when I visited blogland this season.
When I click on the pic, it enlarges, hope it does for you, too:)

Thank you for your visit to my humble blog sweet friends,

Old Christmas Ornaments...

My tree is up and completed except for the old quilt I use for the skirt, I am on my way upstairs soon to complete the look:)
Primitive & Rustic forum on Delphi Forums is my favorite...this morning I was so impressed with this lovely post that a member Kady shared for a great link...I love how the blogger let her lovely words flow about the old, hope you enjoy reading it also:)   click on Shiny and Brite to read:)

This is my favorite time of year JUST before the real Christmas rush and the big family dinner is the link to the lady's post re: old shiny ornaments.
