Blessings....

I love this day, but not for the reason many may think!  We don't go out and celebrate but instead cook something together for an "at home" quiet celebration...and then to bed early :)

This is a great time for me to look at all the good and beauty this past year has given...great times with family, new friends to share this new year with, health for all of us, joy with our munchkins and all the great days that had nothing special but a beautiful day for sure!

A few of my SMILES.....

Making quilts for two of my kids - just love and joy!!

Fabric selection for projects that never even got started  :)

Our annual summer family picture when we are all together...

Asking Papa to watch the kids while I paid at Old Navy....can you find Ryder, Cooper and Emma?

and most of all - quiet times....

I wish you the best for all the great moments you will have this coming year...be sure to enjoy it all :)

Remember - SMILE always....

A good thing....

Yes, it is now officially winter....

Cuddle with me while sip cups filled with hot n’ sweet yumminess in the cold crisp beginnings of winter.  ~ Charlotte (PixieWinksFairy...
This is such a great shot...reminds me of when I lived back east...there is something very peaceful during this time of the year.

BUT....what I love most of all....yesterday was the longest day of the year...each day gives us...a little more light, a little more sunshine and a bit closer to warmer weather :)

Enjoy your day....

Hugs and SMILES....

Two shares....

Happy Thursday...Christmas is almost here.....

I have such great memories of this from my childhood.  My dad just loved it and it was a "must have" in our home during the Christmas season....

Ribbon Candy....I never see it but this past week it appeared at a local store.
They had a very big box of all flavors but this size was just enough to make me SMILE and go back in time for a great memory!

The next "share" is not something from the past but something new that I am now going to do  with all quilt finishes starting in January.  I follow Norma Whaley from Timeless Traditions.  I love everything she does but her labels are fantastic!!
I put a label on my quilts (well most of them) but this is so much more personal.  I can just see this being read years later and I bet the reader will SMILE...
Hope you don't mind if I take your idea Norma :)  So many fun things to do with your labels.  


Today my husband plays Santa at Rady Children's Hospital.  It's such a great event!  It is certainly a time to count our blessings....maybe I will get a good picture to share...:)

Hope you have a great day and you are ready for the elements where you live.  Rain here for sure.

Remember - SMILE always and please be sure to share a hug!!!

Beautiful day....

It has been a beautiful day here in San Diego....sunny, not hot and such a blue sky....these days are treasures.

We started the day by taking our Bichon's, Elwood and Palmer, to the groomer. Elwood hates car trips and Palmer would go cross country in a heart beat :).  They will be very happy to return home clean and groomed....:)

We then went to visit a friend who was doing a show at "Summers Past Farms" here in San Diego...
Her name Is Sandra and she has a fabulous blog. Take a minute and check it out!
Under The Sun With Me...She is so talented and so artistic...I love what she does.  I can play with fabric but when it comes to gardens - not my thing at all  :)  so I just enjoy what she does....

Here is her booth.....so adorable

I know its not the best picture - but I had to share :)

I didn't take home a plant but I did take how this adorable angel....she is very happy sitting in my tree.  Thank you Sandra...I love her!

It's such fun to enjoy a beautiful Saturday...hope you had as much fun as we did :)

I shared many hugs today....it was a great feeling - hope you have shared a few yourself!

Remember SMILE always....
