Just a bit of Christmas decorating...

Happy Weekend everyone.. 
Hope all is well with you ... 

Just a little post of pics tonight of Christmas decor here and there.. 

A pic here that Shonda took of her new home decorated for the season.. 
Rather lovely... 
I thought you might like to see it.. 

Here are a couple of pics of an old chair that I put out on the stoop ...

These pics were taken last year with an old blanket I picked up at the Thrift store.. 
I am doing the same this time, too.. 

A little vignette that Shonda had put together... 

I have been busy getting the house together for our rather large gathering for this Friday night.. 

I have the pantry tree up and decorated... 

A small room but one of my favorites in the house.. 
Terry has been busy also and the kitchen is almost done.. 
It takes us two ancient  older people a lot of time to finish anything these days .. 
Slow and sure does the chore eventually, though.. smile.. 

A few spare bedroom shots.. 

I kind of do the same basic decorating now adays .. 
I used to have to change it each season as I had open house for my craft business here each Fall.. 
So happy I don't have to do that anymore.. 

This is another spare room.. 

Our babies have all fled the nest but hopefully they will be back for 
a night or two over Christmas.. 
We all get together on Boxing Day this year but some of them are coming on Christmas Day and staying overnight.. 
So excited....

I love having all of our children under this roof again at one time.. 
Don't  you? 

A little vignette by Shonda for the back of a flush.. 
We are planning on spending a couple of nights with them next week so will take a few pics of her new home decorating to share with you.. 

I have the menu all ready for our party next week and most of my decorating is finished but you know how many last minute jobs there are to do, eh... 
Hope I get it all completed before they get here. 
We are expecting almost 30 people.. 
Looking forward to it all.. 

Tomorrow is the Lord's Day.. 
The weeks practically fly by, don't they.. 

We feel so blessed to be attending this little church and love the  precious people who worship there .. 
God has blessed us so much and I am very thankful tonight for his faithfulness.. 
We go through storms in this life and He is right there with us in the midst of it all ... 
Guiding and protecting us and directing our steps.. 
Answering prayers and giving us more then we can even think or imagine ... 

Ephesians 3: 20
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us..

Thank you dear hearts for your sweet visit.. Your comments are lovely and I look forward to them.. 
Welcome to the new followers of the blog.. 
So glad to have you.. 

Have a blessed day tomorrow and remember to put Him first in your day..

  6. Faye,
    I enjoyed looking at some of your Christmas decorations. Your home looks so nice all lit up. I love the red candle and blanket. The white glitter Santa caught my eye too. It's very pretty.

    It looks like you are enjoying the Christmas season. Yes, I love all the kids back in the nest, and I'm looking forward to that soon.


  7. I love your pantry tree with the cute kitchen ornaments! We are blessed with our church family too. We will miss being with them tomorrow as they have cancelled services due to an ice storm that has covered our roads.

  8. I always enjoy reading your post. The Christmas decorations look lovely.

  12. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing. I am excited to hear about your party.

  13. Hi Faye, Love your pics. Looks like you have done really well with your decorating. I am pretty much done as well but there are always little things to poke away at. Enjoy your visit with Shonda. Her new home is lovely.

  14. You and Shonda have some sweet decorating touches in your homes. I love your chair vignette at the door and your guest bedroom is sweet with the red and white and the Raggedy Ann dolls. I hope you had a blessed Sunday. I sure did! Have a wonderful week ahead. Hugs, Pam

  15. I hope you had a lovely Lord's Day, we did. We were at our new church, where my hubby is officially the pastor next Sunday. God is so good!
    I love all of your photos, Shonda's house is gorgeous and the lights highlight it perfectly. I look forward to more photos of her decorating in the interior. I pinned the one of the pretty vignette on the back of the flush.
    Have a good week, my friend. Hugs, Cindy

  16. Awe Faye, I miss your open houses. I always managed to purchase a couple of gifts and also a few things for myself. :) Shondra certainly has a gift, I am anxious to see the interior pictures. Have a great week Faye. Hugs Krista

  17. I love all your decorations! Such a clever idea to decorate the chairs. I especially love the one with the plaid blanket and skates. Very festive :)

  18. Hi Faye,
    Lovely Christmas décor. Your Shonda must be having a ball with a new house to decorate :)

    I love your old chair, book, candle, skates.. etc...
    Looks as though someone just stopped by for a Christmas visit.

    Warm wishes..

  19. Thanks for sharing pictures of your home. Everything looks so nice. I wanted to let you know I made the squash bread recipe. I used pumpkin. It was very good-definitely a keeper. Enjoy your day and God bless.
