About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

It's Beginning to Feel a Lot Like Xmas.....

My parents never had a nice Christmas tree..... For years they had the silver kind with the rotating color wheel. My kids were FASCINATED with that tree..... And then they bought a small artifical tree that usually got set up the day before Christmas. They just didn't get into decorating for the holidays like I do.... So I decided that this year my mom needed a nice tree that would make her smile when she looked at it. Her assisted living apartment is small so it couldn't be a full size tree... Here is what I came up with..... I love love love the combination of bright red and lime green! Doubleclick on the pics to enlarge them.... I ran over to Walmart and picked up some cheap garland and used the limey green ribbon to tie it all together.... Wish I had strung lights through the garland as well..... Sorry for the quality of these pics, I took them with my cell phone camera. Merry Christmas, Mom!!!

Today I'm tackling my tree!
