~ A Rosary ~

(French Farmhouse 425)

Hi friends
I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.
My husband surprised me with this beautiful large Rosary from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture

(French Farmhouse 425)

As soon as I opened it I draped it over my antique chippy pink column and there it's stayed since.

I love it
Thanks to my sweet husband
I can't believe 2012 is almost here.. Do you have any special New Years plans?
My family and I will be cozy at home for the New Year
Just the way I prefer it! :)
Have a wonderful weekend and a very
Happy New Year!!!

~ Christmas with Claire ~


I am so blessed to be a mom to two boys
my only little girl is my sweet Claire
I picked her out of a basketful of kittens almost 5 years ago at my sons baseball game.
I was in love at first sight
She is so sweet and follows me everywhere all day long.
She knows I'm her mommy ;)


The sunlight was streaming in this afternoon as I lit some candles and was reading one of my favourite books then Claire decided to join me on the comfy sofa.
I took one look at her all cozy next to me with the sunlight on her and I had to take a few photos.
Isn't she precious?!
I love her.

~ Christmas ~

Hi friends
Sorry I have been a bit absent from blogging lately
There is so much going on this time of year and my lack of blogging reflects it.
I've slowly but surely been adding some touches of Christmas around our home
I love decorating with fresh greenery and like to keep things simple

I purchased this sacred heart from my favourite shop
It goes perfect with our Christmas decor

Little touches of greenery here and there
very simple
I love mixing rustic with pretty

I purchased these pretty little books when I attended the 2nd Saturdayz fleamarket this past weekend with my friend Tracie

My favourite part of our Christmas decor is the handmade school ornaments our sons have made
Our Christmas tree is full of a variety of handmade and sentimental ornaments that all have special memories
Our tree isn't vintage or shabby chic style but it is perfect for us.

~ Have a  Very Merry Christmas ~
Remember the true reason for the season
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
