Good afternoon blogging friends......and for some of you good evening:) I thought it would be fun to post the past pictures of my entry way during Christmastime. It's so fun to see how my decor has evolved over the three seasons. I have learned so much from blogging. Everyone of you has been and inspiration to me in one way or another. In a way......my current entry way reflects all my friendships.
I don't have a lot of spare corners and space to really "do" up, (but I do have a corner upstairs that is going to get some major attention this next year) so my entry way gets most of the focus.
Isn't collecting things and displaying stuff fun? I can't wait to see what my home could look like say in.........10 years!!!!!
Also, something I didn't have in the past was many good friends and a creative outlet. Something every Mother needs:)
This Christmas I feel surrounded by those who care because I have such great blogging friends. Each of you have been such a great support to me. Many of you have visited me regularly over the past year and a half and I have enjoyed getting to know you better. Thank You.
Now, I know no better way than to thank a friend who sends you a beautiful gift than to share it with everyone. Jan has been a wonderful friend to blog with over the past year. She is constantly reminding me to enjoy my children and to cherish the time I have with them. She is a very giving and talented person.
One of my most favorite things is Primitive Folk Art and guess what..... that happens to be her specialty!!!!!
This week she sent me a very special gift. Some of her prints. I just couldn't believe it. I feel so privileged to have them in my home. I am going to redo the upstairs family room with them.
Thanks so much Jan.
She also made each of the girls their own ornament. They have their names on them along with the date. The girls squealed (as they often do) with delight at the cute shapes.
And lastly, kitty was watching me wrap gifts last night from a very comfy view.
