Been floating around table ideas
for the annual LIFT-
Ladies In Fellowship Together-
Several ladies agreed to decorate
a table for the event.
My table is never
elaborate or foo-foo
and usually a bit understated
compared to the elegance of the others.
However, it is always a reflection of my personality-
a little rusty around the edges,
a little bit country,
vintage in nature,
and filled with all the things that make me smile.
My SIL gave me the tool box.
It is MASSIVE
and able to hold a few of my favorite things.
I love the feel and smell of the natural elements.
The feel of burlap,
the smell of evergreen,
and the nostalgia of vintage balls and brush trees.
The candles add a touch of romance.
I hope you'll follow me for a full presentation,

I didn't keep the paper
Sunday School ornaments.
I kept one preschool ornament
of my son's fingerprint.
It hangs on the tree in his old room.
My baby who was 3 years old
is now 28!
I kept all the Hallmark ornaments
but the ones dear to my heart
were made a friend.
She cross-stitched their names.
Born in 1982, my baby girl is now 31.
This was made for my baby boy, 3 years later.
These ornaments will forever find a place
on my tree until they are ready to take them home
for their babies to enjoy.
Call me a "sentimental fool."
It's beginning to look like Christmas!
