It Got Me....the creeping CRUD

I woke up around 2am this morning ILL...not, "Oh I have a headache ill", not..."My tummy aches ill"...but I'M GOING TO PASS OUT AND BE SICK @ THE SAME TIME ILL!! Let me tell you prayer is POWERFUL, I know because I feel a hundred percent better today than I did last night (and I'm still queasy...blah!) A stomach bug has been going around, so I'm not surprised it finally caught up with me.

I hope the creeping crud hasn't caught you guys...if so...PRAY.

Holiday Bling and a Ribbon Chest

Here's a little "Holiday Bling"!!
Small vignette of some silver baubles and bead garland with a few tea lights added for ambiance.

Below are a couple of close-ups of my tree.

Here's that same vignette in color...
This little fella came home with me from Goodwill for $1. I prettied him up with clear lights and a few pics. I love the silver cross ornament(a gift from my good friend Judy)

I'm off now to look at more of you guys beautiful Holiday Homes.

**OOps...I almost forgot, here's a couple of pics of my new/antique ribbon chest for my Office/Studio:
Ta Da! Painted black, accented with a little rub-n-buff, re-finished the pulls and decopauged scrapbook paper onto the inside drawers. I love it...adding more to it everyday! I got this idea from Tracey @ A Cottage Industry.

Oh Christmas Tree...Oh Christmas Tree

I can't seem to get ONE good shot of my tree this year. I don't know if it's the lighting or if my camera is about to go "ca putt", Lord knows it's served me well over the past nine years, it may be time for a new one. Anyhoo, I'll try to take some better shots this weekend when I have a little more time.

OK, this is a better picture of my tree a couple of years ago...decorated the same.

Don't forget to go over to Julia's at Hook on House's for her Holiday Open House! Enjoy! And Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick
While you're at it stop by BooMama's and Rhoda's to enjoy their Holiday Open House!

These are a Few of My Favorite Things

Thrifty Decor Chick is having a "Favorite Things" post, here are a few of mine this Holiday.

This is my all time favorite Christmas CD. I listen to this while trimming the tree every year...always puts me in the mood for the Holidays.

Ummm, don't you think of cold winter nights in front of the fireplace when you look at this yummy cocoa mix from The Desperate Diva

Cranberry Soap!! I love the smell of this stuff. I spotted a bar at TJ Maxx today, priced @ $5.99 for one bar...ouch! however, I have to have it!!
