Well, folks, I don't think I'll be blogging much anymore. I just haven't felt like it; but, who knows, maybe now that I've confessed it I might do it more! Just thought I'd let you know so you don't think anything is wrong.

My daughter has a friend who is a hairdresser and I went over there to have her trim my long locks yesterday. She said she cut off about 5 or 6 inches and it's still at the top of my butt! I knew it had grown longer than I wanted because it has been really annoying when I would sit on it and such. I figured I'd keep it long until I go gray. I turned 60 in November and still only get a few strands of gray, so it looks like I'll be able to keep it long for quite a while!

I just had to show you the brooch I got at Kohl's right after Christmas. It sparkles so much, I love it!

I'm on Facebook, but I don't usually post pics of my crafts and thrift store finds. You're more than welcome to join me, although I have to warn you that I'm a conservative Christian and my FB page reflects that. See you around!

My Amaryllis bloomed just in time for the New Year!

It looks like my Knee Huggers have invaded my kitchen and taken up residence under my little tree!

Bought this sleigh at the thrift store last week. Yesterday I threw some stuff in it and like the way it came out!

I started my decorating this week. I like Christmas decorating because it gives me the chance to do a "Spring Cleaning" in the Fall! I also like to change up my decorations each year, by not putting them in the same place. It adds more interest, I think.

Here's a few of my change-ups. This is my Kitchen Tree. If you look carefully you'll see some vintage kitchen utensil ornaments by Midwest of Cannon Falls. I love them! The only change to it this year is the fence box it's in. I picked it up at a thrift store this summer and knew immediately what I would use it for!

The top of my china cabinet. The Peace box is new this year.

I had moved this table from one side of the living room to the other and decided to just fill it with a hodge-podge of stuff. I filled the white house with an assortment of, mostly, wood figures.

My collection of Christmas books sits on the cabinet in my half-bath this year.

I love the spine of this red and gold book!

On the windowsill of the same bath is a snowman banner that I made, and my roly-poly Santa!
