I wanted something different for a wall in my living room. I had an old window, some vintage plastic icicle, a single window candle and some winter foilage. I put them all together and this is what I came up with!

Kitchen Wreath

I'm going to try to post at least a couple times a week in December. I hope I still have a few followers!

I got this green wreath at M's. All I added were some vintage red plastic and metal cookie cutters, cinnamon sticks tied with ribbon and some small sparkly styrofoam balls. I used a glue gun so I can still use the cookie cutters if I want to.

The Best Favorite Things Friday!!

I'm a little slow on the Friday Favorites this week but this is the best one ever!

I'd like to introduce you to Madelyn Louise. She arrived at 1:12 Friday afternoon, after a long 15 year wait by her parents, my daughter Laurie and her proud Daddy, Chris.
She even has her Daddy's red hair as we all hoped she would.
She weighs 7'8", is 21 inches long and has a good set of lungs.

Daddy was pretty shaky after she arrived but Mommy and Maddy are both doing great!

Favorite Things Friday?

As much as I'm not ready for snow, I must admit it is beautiful!

It's Bloomin' Tuesday

Welcome to the last Bloomin' Tuesday of 2011. There is nothing bloomin' here (we've had snow a couple days but nothing serious) so I'm showing you a couple pictures I never posted.

If you'd like to show off your bloomers just add your name and permalink to Mr Linky. Don't forget to add a link to this post on your blog.
Thanks to all the gardeners that have participated! See you in the Spring for Bloomin' Tuesday!

It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Welcome to the next to the last Bloomin' Tuesday until next spring!

I've been watching this one lonely Dianthus for awhile now because it's right by my driveway. We had a heavy frost on Sunday and I was afraid I'd lost it. Today it is beautiful!

One more bloom on a small piece of Sedum I moved this year.

I forgot about this mum. I love the color but I think it's being over run where it is so I'll need to move it.

Pretty fall colors with Bunny Grass, Blanket Flower seed heads and some spearmint that has turned dark burgundy.

This Dead Nettle will really need to be cut back next spring. I can't believe it's still blooming.

I didn't realize how pretty the Crocosmia gets. This would look great in a dried arrangement.

I planted this ivy and some dark purple double wave petunias in this basket I hang on the tree in front of my house.

The ivy is still going crazy!

I think I'll leave it up all winter just to see what happens. I think it was an annual but I'm not sure.
I will be stopping Bloomin' Tuesday the end of the month. My garden has about bloomed out and I'll be busy with a new Granddaughter in November.
Show me what you've got bloomin' this week. Add your name and permalink to your blog and add a link to this post. Thanks for sharing!

It's Bloomin' Tuesday

My 2 planted mums have finally started to bloom. You can just see it by the handles of the wheelbarrow.

The tips are actually pink but it doesn't show in the pictures.

The Knock Out Rose has bloomed more this fall than it did all summer.

The Cosmos are still beautiful! They are really top heavy so they lean but still keep bloomin'.

The large one is at least 3 inches across.

One of my white Primroses is blooming again.

This is the other mum I planted a couple years ago. It is the daisy type too but a little pinker than the first one.

I had to show you my Limelight Hydrangea. I love the color of the blooms now. I'll probably cut some before to long.

They are so big I won't need many.

What is still bloomin' where you are planted? Add your name and permalink to Mr Linky and a link to this post on your blog and I'll be by to check out your bloomers!
