Oh There's no place like Home for the Holidays...

Well, I've been on a little trip and I am so glad to be home again. Dave and I took a trip South over the past couple weeks. He had business in Orlando FL and Charleston SC so I tagged along and had a great time visiting and shopping. His family lives in Orlando so it was nice to visit with them. And we have some great friends in Charleston we spent some good time with. It was all great fun but I am so glad to be back and ready to decorate the house for Christmas. We usually do this much earlier but the trip changed that. It was 85 in Florida during our visit, I wished it was colder. But we arrived back in Virginia just after a dusting of snow and today we have a bit of ice. I'm so ready for this winter, the nesting and cozy fires. I can't wait, we may just have a white Christmas.

Giveaway prizes packed and on the way. I'm a day later than I thought. But I hope all you winners enjoy your treasures. Be sure to let me know they all arrive safe to your homes. Thanks to all for your comments. This was so fun, I hope to do it again soon.

I'm off to the sewing machine, still more Santa's to make before it's to late.

This is so what my house looks like now. I've got work to do.

Glad you are back, and speaking of "sewing Machines..I need to sew up two more aprons before too long, or I will be in trouble as well. I have to one out of the two done by next Sat. So I hear ya, "Sewing it is..."

I'm so excited to get my prizes. An early Christmas from Becky-Santa. Thank you soooo much.

We've had rain for almost 24 hours which we need so badly. Tonight it will turn to snow I think. The fire is on, Christmas cartoons on the TV--funny, Phil is the only one watching them--I'm going to make popcorn with browned butter soon and we are going to watch a movie. A great date night at home. Hope you are warm and toasty too. My niece lives in Virginia so I have a special interest in your state.
