one year


it flew by
like the trees
that line the highway
on this journey called life


as the miles ticked away from here... there ... everywhere
2009 was a much happier trip with all of you along for the ride
may this new year be one of great adventure & love
I am grateful for your friendship
along the road

i stopped...i clicked

driving by

in the rain

holiday cheer

a table ...a year...

the table by a window

daily life swirls all around me
this table means refuge with moments
of quiet and warmth mixed with serious and silly
it is an everyday place filled with memories..smiles...tears
as the year and this project comes to a close
my wish for you is comfort
and special feelings
around your
table in

. friendship . a present that always fits .

wrapped in many unique & different packages
each of you make the blog world a true gift
happy holidays & merry Christmas
blessings to you all

a story of an indoor outdoor tree

christmas treetree3.jpgtree1.jpg
I wanted a natural
Christmas tree this year
bought a lovely Yaupon holly
set it up and decided to decorate the next day
includes ants!
the next morning
they were everywhere
we now have a lovely outdoor Christmas tree

favorite garden shop

turned holiday
with colored globes
tucked among the beauty
as we stroll among the quiet





peace with a dash of color ... my wish for you this day
