This Week's Blog Post!

Necklace
This is my belated Christmas tip for my hairstylist. Since having no hair appointment in December she will be receiving it this week.

I repurposed this pendant which had been on a black velvet choker and needed updating (it was very 1990's). The lilac stone and clear crystals accent it beautifully! Hopefully she loves it. It is dressy but would also look great with a white shirt and jeans!

Christmas Card

I received this beautiful Christmas card from Vicki’s Card Creations on Etsy. This was given to Jim. I love its romantic feel! It is beautifully crafted with embossed shiny berries and multiple layers. Even the inside has 2 additional layers of paper!

Vicki also included these gorgeous tags which I will safely tuck away for next year since my wrapping was already completed.

Vicki also makes these wonderful hanging pine cone ornaments.

She makes cards for different occasions. All made with the highest quality card stock and embellishments.

These vintage style tags are wonderful!

The greeting cards can be customized inside if you wish to have something stamped with a personal message.

Stop by Vicki’s shop next time you are in need of a beautiful card! Visit her blog too!

Have a happy, safe new year! ABC is airing a marathon of Once Upon a Time Sunday night which Jim and I plan on watching.

I have been watching it from the beginning but he has not…and wants to see it! The show makes me feel young again!!! Have a great New Year’s week! ~Val

  6. Pretty necklace, and the card shop items look beautiful and well made, too. Thanks for the mention about the marathon, I've only seen a bit of one episode, so I'll try and tape it.

    Happy New Year!

  14. Hi Val, I know what you mean about tv time, I would say tv is a hobby of mine, LOL. Thank goodness we have a dvr so we can tape and watch things when we want. Do check out Grimm if you get a chance, you might enjoy it.

    Funny you mention Florida, Chris will be retiring from the military in 1 1/2 to 2 years and we'll be hopefully moving to Orlando Fl. We will go there this coming fall to check out homes and maybe a few months after that, return to buy something. I think we will enjoy it there. Like you, we have lived in an area with winter all our lives and I think at this point, we're ready for a new direction and new adventures.
