The Holidays Are Near!

Sunday, November 20, 2011

Yes, the holidays must be here again!

Every year when she drags out all of the Christmas STUFF, she always seems to come across these ridiculous reindeer antlers and takes pictures of me wearing them!

Oh, I hope my buddies don't see me wearing these!

Finally, I'm free of these silly antlers! Maybe if I chew a nice hole in them, I won't have to go through this again next year!! Good grief!  :-)   You're a real sport Gino, I love you!

Outfit Confession.. dressed for the Birthday of my 6yr old niece

It was my niece Oira's Birthday!! and thats what i wore for her Birthday party!! felt like a Six year old all over again..!!

                    And now About my look..!!

              I am wearing..


         ( Dress- Pull and Bear) (Belt- Pull and Bear) ( Shoes- Catwalk) ( Watch- Aldo)
I kept it simple with almost no make up like always..!! just a tinch of coral lip color over the lip balm for the natural n nourished looking lips, just a stroke of blush( again just a tinch on brush) and concealer under eyes and coral eye shadow..!! this always works for me!!this gives me a naturally clean look yet a no makeup effect!! .. *_^

Christmas Decorating Photos, #3

Wednesday, November 16, 2011
Well, these are the last of the photos to share. I do have my tree up, but things have been hectic so far this week, and it's still not decorated. I'm going to try and get this done in the next few days. I also have a lot of cleaning to finish since I'm having my family over for Thanksgiving. It seems like things will never get done in time, but somehow it always works out! I have some shopping done, but no presents wrapped yet. This I will need to do soon and get them put under the tree before one of my cats decides to get under the tree and vomit on my tree skirt!! This way they won't be able to get under my tree! I know it's gross, but this is my life and my luck with animals. It's happened before. Also one year my dog thought his mommy actually brought in a tree from outside just so he could pee on it!! This kind of thing happens to me all the time. I could go on and on, but I won't. So, for the pictures......

There are 3 more Jim Shore pieces on this table, the front three, Santa (the small one) Rudolph & Clarice, and Sam the snowman & Rudolph.

The four little snow people are from Jim Shore.

This is a little shelf in the corner of my bathroom. Does anyone else decorate their bathroom for Christmas?

 A friend of mine bought this picture for me for Christmas one year. I love snowmen!!

My sister-in-law made this snowman face and the picture of the snowman above is hanging on the wall next to this. Their faces match somewhat!

 This is another beautiful box that I'll never part with!

Smiley faces....I LOVE THEM!!

This wall hanging was a gift from my brother and his wife.

I love this book! My sister-in-law had this and other things in a beautiful basket that she made for me one year.

This is my little Pepper peeking through the dining room window from the sunporch.

Well that's it! After my tree is done, I'll take pictures of it and post. Hope you all have a nice day!!
