Pink Christmas Tree

Someday I plan to have a smallish pink Christmas tree, similar to this one:

When I do, I'll have lots of lovely, feminine ornaments (pink, of course!).  It will have to sit in my craft room, however.  My husband would not be able to tolerate so much pink!

I'm hooking this up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.

Button and Embellishment Christmas Tree

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!  I know I did.

I'm so glad that we're finally officially in the Christmas season.  I am planning crafts, including homemade Christmas cards.

I wanted to share the first craft I've completed.  Here are most of the components that went into it:

And here's how it looks all finished:

It was a lot of fun and I love how it turned out.  All you need is a glue gun, a tree form, and whatever blingy embellishments and buttons you might have laying around!

I'll be back in a day or two with another Christmas post.

Happy Pink Saturday!

My rose bushes are still going strong.  I wanted to share a couple of pictures of some that I brought into my office today.

Aren't they lovely?  I feel so blessed that they are still blooming.  This is our first year of having rose bushes, and it will be interesting to see how long they keep going!

I'm linking up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.  Please check out some other blogs.  You won't be disappointed!

Have a wonderful weekend!

New Shoes!

I bought a couple of pairs of new shoes today.  At Payless Shoes.  Yes, Payless!  They actually have some very cute styles, and the pairs I've gotten there over the years have really lasted.  My favorite brand there is American Eagle.  They are having their BOGO sale, so I got two pairs for $30.00.

I can only wear flats now, because of my back.  I go out of my way to find cute ones, though, and I've gotten a reputation for having cute shoes.

I got these:

It's hard to tell, but they are a maroon color, made of fabric and have bows.

And these:

They are a dark tan leather.  I love the buckle!

Here's one last picture.  It's random, but it makes me smile so I hope it does the same for you!

This is us way back when.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Warning:  The following is an early Christmas post!

I know a lot of people don't feel that Christmas should be discussed before Thanksgiving has passed, but I can't help it...I'm a Christmas nut!  I'll probably be doing a lot of these types of posts in the coming weeks.

I hope you'll enjoy these images from Pinterest.com.  I'm gaining inspiration for "some year" when I do a pastel decorating theme, with pink figuring prominently!

I'm linking up with How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.

Enjoy your weekend!

Do you ever daydream about having all kinds of "extra" money and being able to purchase a few baubles with it?  I do!  I doubt it will ever happen, and I'm okay with that!  However, it cheers me up to shop a little for what I would buy if I could.

I'm crazy about charms.  Juicy Couture makes my favorite charms.  They are so detailed and whimsical.  Please enjoy these charms that I've picked out to show you. 

Aren't they adorable?  
Thanks for joining me!  I hope everyone's week is going well.
