Three or More Tuesday – Blessings

Happy Tuesday everybody!! Our fantastic hostess, Tam over at the Gypsy’s Corner is hosting "Three or More - Tuesday". If you would like to participate, drop in and visit her for all of the details.


I think it is so easy to get caught up in day to day hectic schedules, stressful jobs & other things that we lose sight of the essential things that we are so fortunate to have.

It really is amazing to think how blessed we all are. Today I would like to share just a few of my blessings with you. These are not material things, but things that are very important to me. 

I cannot believe just how blessed I am to have my own home to come to everyday.  It is so sad to think there are so many people living on the streets that have no idea from day to day where they will go for shelter.

I feel so blessed to have a warm & cozy bed to lay in every single night.  There are so many people out there who would give anything to have just a blanket and a safe place to lay their head each night.

By the way, Bentley says he also feels blessed too!!

Each day I think what a luxury it is to have a bathroom with clean running water to use, and to shower in.  To have clean towels to use is also something I am so, very thankful for.

I am also so very blessed to have family & friends in my life.  It really is amazing to think how lonely it would be not to have them!! 

And, one of my biggest blessings that I am so very thankful for is this sweet little boy!!! 

Have a blessed week!!

Metamorphis Monday – Napkin Holder

Hello & welcome to Metamorphasis Monday.

As I was going through all of my Christmas things I found these adorable snowmen napkins that had never been opened. Since I will be having company for the upcoming holiday, I thought they would be precious to display & to use.

My only problem was I could not find anything to put them in. Then, I remembered a gold metal basket that I had placed in my garage sale pile.

I did not at all like the gold color for my napkin display.  Luckily I had just enough Heirloom White spray paint left in the can to complete & transform this small project.  So, I painted the basket & added just a bit of glaze.

And, here she is all dressed & ready for display:

Thanks for paying me a visit & seeing my project.  It really is amazing how something so small can be transformed into a new treasure.  I now can use this basket for so many things, and to think I was going to put it in a garage sale!!!

Please stop by to link up with our fabulous hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for all of the details, and to see all of the other party participants.

Have a wonderful Monday.

Christmas is Getting Closer……

Can you all believe how fast the time fly’s by? I am amazed that another year has almost past & Christmas is knocking on the door!!

I have absolutely no idea why, but I have had a huge case of the blahs the last couple of months. I think I will blame it on this South Texas heat!! But, the last week the weather has been so nice and cool for a pleasant change. It really is refreshing and makes me feel all rejuvenated!!  We even got a little snow yesterday!!

I now have my Christmas tree up and have been placing miscellaneous adornments around the house. I am now ready for the season & ready to enter back into the wonderful world of blogging once again. I have missed visiting with you all, and cannot wait to drop in say hello again.
