My precious daughter-in-law Emily is quite the talented photographer!!!
I was busy wrapping so many gifts and Clara was my precious little elf...
taking the gifts to the tree and placing them ever so carefully!
Emily, Brent and DH (dear husband) have a big soap order they're working on
but during a break Emily took a few pics around the farmhouse ~
I told her I was so very thankful because I needed some great blog fodder!!!!
Here is our view at sunset this time of year ~
the leaves are gone but it's still so beautiful.
This pic is earlier in the day but so beautiful ~ across the street from the house :)
See our mailbox?
The snowbird I created for my sweet snowbird tutorial ~
She hangs in a tiny artificial boxwood topiary.
Little peeks at our Christmas tree ~
I've inserted the prettiest glittered up stems!
They have that vintage look to them....
And look what arrived today!!!!
I won the most wonderful giveaway from Becky at A Wing and a Prayer...
A handmade santa that she created!!!!
I'm so in love with him....he sits center-stage on our mantle now!
And Becky included the most precious ornament too ~
Thank you so very much sweet Becky,
I am so honored to own your wonderful creations!!!!
A vintage-feel sign that I saved from some I used to sell in the antique store ~
Our front porch light ~
Curly ivy I purchased at Lowe's that's sitting on the iron set on the front porch ~
Since my ferns are on their last leg, I thought maybe I could plant ivy
in their hanging baskets!
We'll see how that goes....I'll probably kill them :)
Our wonderful old, bare pecan trees...standing beautifully in a row.
A shy, little girl concrete statue standing in our front flower bed ~
(mind you, the bed needs a little cleaning!)
And I'm STILL wrapping gifts too!!
When you have five kids....and add on the fact that our family is growing ~
there are a LOT of gifts to wrap!
Thank you so much Emily for taking these pics today
so I can share them with my sweet friends ~
Wishing you a wonderful Tuesday!!!
hugs and love,
