A Blessed Holy Christmas

From My home to Your's.......




 wishing You all.....

a blessed Christmas,full of Christmas miracles.      Love  Denise

The Christmas Search. My home and much more.


What is it Were searching  for during the Christmas season? The magic of Our Youth,Our Children's Youth? A scene from a  TV movie that brings to mind the way it should have been or wish it would have been in our own life?





Sweet and aromatic smells of holiday foods and all kinds of goodies from Our kitchens,the kitchens of Our Mom's, Grandma's and Aunties . 

The birth of Baby Jesus in the Manger? The Christmas Church service?  Well maybe a few are right on, none of them are wrong or bad,and for Me, I've experienced all of them and more.The glimmer shimmer and shine of it all.

What are We searching for?Our hearts yearn for  something we can not grasp at times. 
 The welcoming door of a home and those in it You love so ?


Gifts given and received,with a big Thank-You and a now warmer heart ? That too yes,all this does make for a warmer heart.


 Four beautiful gifts from Gail at Purple Hues and Me :) Thank You and One More big hug goes to Holly from Cutie Pie Cottage for My rag ball garland,seen on My tree.


                       My search always ends every Christmas with My eyes looking up.There are no words, smells or sites ect.. just yet, I think there will be someday on the otherside,that can describe eternity in HEAVEN. Hugs and miracle blessings to You. Denise   PS...Oh please help ladies...I forgot how to fix the white behind My words,I've tried everything and just want to publish.You can till I fooled around with the template trying to fix it.

"Take a look at the 5 and 10,glistening once again......."


This has always been a song I've enjoyed each Christmas season, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...."



Go ahead,"Take a look at the 5 and 10,glistening once again  :)

I have lived down the street for the last 6 Years from a Tai Pan Trading,a Marie Osmond store. I'm not sure if She is still involved with the store.Mine has down sized and cut the space of their building by it looks to Me, an 8th.


These pics are after the down size,can You imagine what it looked like before?


I still go there often, although I miss the larger space.


The store has wonderful supplies of  DIY decor. and ready made.
It's very hard at Christmas not to be joyful in this store,


 20140813-_-277E.jpgThey're  located in UT,ID, CA. and I'm really hoping they're not all downsizing.            Tai Pan Trading This is not a Co. Advertisement, I just Love this store,esp. at Christmas and I have a feeling it's all over for the one in My city and I'm pretty sure it will be closing .....so go ahead take a look at the 5 and 10 glistening once again. Blessings and hugs Your way-Denise

Before the decorating begins......

The new Christmas creation's began before Thanksgiving. I've been in a festive mood this Year for a long time,I'm not sure why,I'm not like this every Year.


My fave creations are always lavender in color.Before My Christmas gets in full swing.May I brag about family just a bit please.......

Our families Thanksgiving turned out wonderful. Cheryl, My oldest. Leanne My youngest in the back round.

I was blessed all day.Only the oldest Granddaughter was missing-out with Her fiance. Isn't that how it stats happening as they grow up?One by one,I just am enjoying it now.

We're trying for thin poses,Me and Annette.

Paul, My husband :)

 Paul and Chrissy....

My youngest and oldest. The youngest,Leanne was the hostess this Year.  

There they all are.

While Us ladies Were flitting around laughing and taking photos-These Were some of the men.
The host. Josh,a gastroenterologist.Good looking, strong,
smart, devoted family Man. So proud of Him.,,,,,
Daniel, truck driver,part time Minister.I honoured him in My last post.

Micheal,the business man,all who meet Him end up loving Him-no enemies ever.Just a great Man in all ways.All bosses promote Him  and honour Him.       Well thank You for any of You that sat though My bragging-I appreciate it.

Now I say....Let the fun begin!

This is what I'm doing for about a week.May I show You the results when I'm finished ?Love and Hugs-Denise

One big Miracle :)

 One of My Dear Son In Laws posted this on His FB page today.His whole life now is a miracle.I was afraid for My daughter when She fell in love with Him.Now He's an usher in their church, teaches on some Wednesday family nights.Has spoken and preached on Sundays.Has a ministry for the down and out.Reaches out to those in prison.I want to thank God for giving Our Family this wonderful Man with His mischievous smile and His warm heart,and to think We were all afraid of Him and His wild past.I wasn't going to post  again until after Thanksgiving,but isn't this apart of- Thanksgiving.

My kindred Spirits and My remade Thanksgiving craft- what fun I'm having :)

 Thank You to all My new followers and to all My faithful followers.I appreciate all of You so much.I would have never guessed years ago that Our computer would be such a big part of My life and that I would be blogging and meeting so many ladies that I have  a lot in common with,"kindred Spirit's". I've said before that I have two  biological sisters that I love very much and the three of Us are very close,but they like different things than I do and their interests lie in other areas than Mine.My blogging friends and I do like so many of the same things,that's what makes blogging so much fun---You ladies.     :)


I don't usually pick up new Thanksgiving deco's but this Year I couldn't pass these beauties up from Pier One.Two cupcakes that had My name written all over them.
My daughter asked Me if I wanted an old messed up Halloween deco.piece of Hers, I took the tangled piece home remade it into this Thanksgiving wreath and gave it back to Her. I did keep and give Her the Halloween wooden Characters that went with the pumpkins so that way She can turn it back into Halloween later if She likes.By the way, did all of You see that right now Micheal's has all of their Christmas ribbon 70% Off. Oh My I did have fun yesterday in Michael's,it's truly so beautiful in there right now,I picked up four different ribbons-I do love ribbons .


I  thank The Lord Himself for all He has so generously given Me and forgiven Me of. He is so faithful to His word. I love Him and You too-Denise- Happy Thanksgiving !
One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
