A Few More Touches

Just a few more touches to make me smile. 

The funnel-tree on the left is unfinished, 
I know.  
Can't decide what I want to do with it, 
but for now I think it works with the silver.
Finally found a truck to haul my tree home.   

The smile on that little fellow lights my world
even more than the lights on the tree.
He will be so much fun this year, his third Christmas. 

I found some more vintage Santa mugs. 
I can't believe these things are still out there. 
I surely didn't expect to find any as
hot as they are in the magazines this year. 

They are making new ones, but I prefer the old.
This is my favorite. 
It is HUGE.
Don't you like???

Please pray for my daughter-in-law's family.
PaPaw went home to be with Jesus. 
As difficult as it is, they are comforted 
in knowing that he is now of sound mind, 
at peace and free of pain.

Those babies made him happy. 

Surely don't mind sharing my loves with this sweet family.
Prayers for them tonight.



  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your families loss. I hope that your daughter-in-law is doing well.

    On a lighter note, the Santa mugs are awesome! I wish I had some!

  2. Sorry to hear of this loss. I'll be praying for your DIL's family.
    Love the mugs and that little truck!

  3. I am so sorry to hear about your DIL's sad news. I will be thinking of them all. xx

  4. I'm sorry to hear about the sad news of your loved one but rejoicing with you that you know where he is! The Santa mugs are so cute and I don't even have one! :) Thanks so much for popping in to see me. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. Bonnie, I'm so sorry to hear about this loss. It is never easy to lose a loved one, especially around the holidays. Although there is much comfort in knowing he is with Jesus, the loss is still hard. Keeping your sweet DIL and the family in prayer.

  6. My deepest sympathy.

    I do love the Santa mugs and the bigger the better!

  7. Praying for your DIL's family as they mourn the passing of their PaPaw! I know that they will find peace in knowing he is healthy and happy today and free of any pain! He sure looks like a sweet man:)

    Love your decorations dear friend, I am itching to start decorating too:) Sending HUGS and PRAYERS your way!

  8. So sorry for your DIL's loss.

    I love your mugs. I still have the one that we had when I was a child. xo Laura

  9. Morning, so sorry to hear about DIL's loss, sad.... I do love that big Santa mug, great treasure indeed.Blessings Francine.

  10. So sorry for your DHL loss.
    Love your decorations....I'm itching to get started!! But I will wait till after 2 Thanksgiving family events held here later this week.
    Happy Thanksgiving, Bonnie!

  11. Prayers for your family...and asking God to give them peace and comfort.

    Yes, this little guy will have a blast this Christmas! Nothing like seeing it all through a child's eyes. I really miss that!

    Santa mugs are cute ~ is the coffee on?


  12. Sorry about the loss in your family. On a happier note - love the new blog banner for Christmas and all the decorations. that large Santa mug had a surprised look on his face.

  13. So pretty and festive looking at your house. Those Santa mugs are guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone who enters your home...sorry there is loss in your family. ((Hugs))

  14. Hi Bonnie, I'm happy to get to meet you- but sorry for the loss of this loved one. While it's a comfort to know our loved ones are home with the Lord- the "missing" is still so hard.

    I look forward to getting to know you better! Happy Thanksgiving! Lea

  15. Keeping you in prayer...btw, the funnel tree doesn't need anything, it's perfect. Blessings

  16. Isn't it a blessing that when your child marries their family becomes your family. Just today I took a toy bike to my granddaughter's other grandpa for his help to fix it.
    I hope you have a nice Thanksgiving with lots of smiles.
    Prayers to both families.
