I've Been Away for a While, But...

No excuses here, I know I've missed an entire season of updates to my blog but I was not going to miss wishing everyone blessings for a healthy, prosperous holiday season and new year.

I have so much fun decorating our home for the holidays.  Creating a warm and cozy home for my family is absolutely the best part of the holiday season for me.  Machine embroidered snowflakes and handmade ornaments fill the tree.


                           I love mixing my needlework ornaments with the more traditional ones.


                            The fireplace mantel is the perfect place to display santa figurines.

                                                        ...And handmade stockings.

                         And we must not forget our favorite snowman...I'll keep him around through January.

Howsoever you celebrate the season, I wish you joy, peace, and happiness


Happy Holidays Everyone

Hello there lovely lady,

I especially love your blue and white teacup vignettes from amongst your fabulous collections of teatime pictures! The tree is very lovely also.

Thank you so very much for so generously and kindly gracing our blogs with your various lovely Tuesday tea party links. Thanks also for visiting our blogs time and time again and leaving sweet words of comment and encouragement with your participation for our Tuesday Tea's for our, 'Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday', as well as for my, 'Tuesday Tea For Two', weekly blog tea party.

Pam and I are going to very much miss you as we leave blog land for quite a long while. This is due to very important personal reasons that were unforseen; (even two weeks ago).

Dear Pam and I had a long and friendly conversation just two days ago. Upon my informing Pam that I needed to 'bow out gracefully', from blogland for the forseeable future, she requested that I also send this message of deepest gratitude and regret on her behalf also. As I bid you a fond farewell and as we both leave you and other very lovely fellow bloggers for the time being my friend.

Have blessed New Year in 2012!

Hugs and blessings from Wanda Lee, (and Pam; Pam is from her own, 'Breath Of Fresh Air', blog.)
