Violet and White for Christmas

Posted on: December 22, 2013

Feeling very sentimental today on this amazing 80 degree day….

Missing my dear mother and cherishing memories as a child attending Christmas Services in the Episcopal Church sparked the vision of the gorgeous violet , white and gold linens that adorned the altar.

I would have loved to do gold jewelry, but opted to wear this pin of my mother’s as a pendant to feel her with me throughout my day…

The clouds were starting to roll in as I was taking my photos. so not the best lighting..

I wish you could tell the my jeans have a white pearlized finish on them…

Nature provided a sweet surprise as these were in my flower bed today!  

Dear Readers, This will be my last post before Christmas as Monday and Tuesday are cleaning and cooking days. I hope you all have a Wonderful  Holiday, spent with loved ones and share in the joy and laughter of the season. 

Gratitude

I am grateful for this unseasonably warm day and the fun of seeing everyone out in their shorts and flip flops in my beach community… 

I am grateful for my daughter who helped dump out  leftover containers  to get both refrigerators clean and ready to fill up with all my cooking tomorrow.

I am grateful for our Saturday night with our dear freinds and the fun and laughter we share. 

I am grateful to see our dear friend standing and walking after his accident in September when he fell from a roof and crushed all the bones in both feet. 

I am grateful for the wonderful success my husband has had this first month in his new job. 

I am grateful that even with the new job my husband is taking off the week between Christmas and New Years!
