Merry Christmas!!!

I couldn't let Christmas pass by without popping in and wishing all of my online friends a wonderful Christmas.  I hope you all have a joyous Christmas and that 2011 will be a great year for you!

The project I have to show you today is a Christmas wall hanging.  I found the wonderful vintage image and the vintage background music for my wall hanging at The Graphics Fairy, which is a terrific blog.  Karen offers thousands of vintage images for free. I used vintage lace and antique buttons for embellishments.

I wanted to share a few pictures with you from the evening that Mark and I went out looking at Christmas lights.  Our evening ended with our own private light show by a policeman, because the van had a light out and we didn't realize it. :)

This first picture is my favorite, because it shows a Florida style Christmas - a Palm tree wrapped in lights.

This picture was just too cute to pass up. :) 

Blessings 
  • My dear, sweet husband, who has pitched in to do so much for the holidays.
  • Someone gave us a phone system, in great used condition, that is what I needed to accommodate my neck problems.
  • A special time with family at a gathering.
  • That we have Christmas to remind us that God gave us His only son.
Have a fabulous day!!!

Inky hugs!
Shelly
