I decided to go easy on my Easter decor this year, I'm still trying to continue to feel well, but no more attic hunting for me...lol.....the hubby won't allow me up there unless he is home to help me.....so I did what I could with his help, but after a day of it he deemed it done, and so did I! To be honest I do get scared to go up into the attic with out someone holding my hand! What a big baby I am......lol......
I hope you enjoy your visit, I know I enjoyed your visit and sweet comments!

Love is in the Air!

Hello lovelies, one of my favorite holidays beside all of them....haha...is Valentines day, my sweet hubby and I got engaged on Valentines day....
I have to start decorating early cause it's slow going for me, so when sweet hubster was saving some Christnas decor for me up in the attic, yeap the one I took a tumble from, I told hubby to bring down my feather tree...I wanted to start putting up some Valentines decor, I won't be doing as much as I normally do, but just enough to make things romantic for my hubster and moi...




I just ordered these sweet hearts from ebay....




I hopped along to Michaels and spotted these sweet votive holders, I had to have them, love the rhinestone heart....




I love these pretty pink butterflies and how they shine and sprakle......




Found this cute hugs ornie at pier1, loving this cutie.




And look how pretty my angel wing ornaments look on my tree...
Well that's it for now my dears, just wanted to show off my pretty feather tree, I placed her in one of my urns and walaaaa she is as pretty as can be in my dining room buffet.
Till next time~

Keep calm and hold on to God!!

Hello friends, for this new year, instead of saying keep calm and carry on, my saying is keep calm and hold on to God!




I know you guys who read my blog know that in June I suffered a T.I.A in other words a mini stroke, they believe it was brought on by stress and nerves! Then on December 5 I took a tumble from my attic...ouch....
But what you don't know is that lately I have been feeling sorry for myself telling myself that if it wasn't for bad luck I have no luck at all! We all know that saying right! But when I said this in my mind I was talking to God...yeap I always speak to him..please don't think I'm nuts.....but any who I felt like he answered me, first of all he made it clear that I survived my mini stroke because he was beside me the entire time I was struggling to get better, no matter how mini the stroke was, it's like your body took a beaten and your still trying to put the pieces of your life back together, your mind and thinking change, well at least for me it did, I still am not able to remember what happened to me, all I know I awoke in a hospital!! It's scary to say the least.
Then second I fall from my attic suffering an injured ankle, now we all know it could have been a disaster! Well I know it cause my lord made it clear he was there with me the entire time, I believe he was there to cushion my fall! So in his words I'm a very bless and lucky lady, so my saying is keep calm and hold on to God ;-)
