It's December



This is Maggie..  Since I last wrote a blog, Bonnie has gone from us.  We had to say our goodbyes the end of September.  It was such a sad time for us.  It's the main reason I have been absent from blogland lately.  I just have not had much motivation but I am finally coming around.  We brought Maggie into the house full time right after Bonnie died.  She has adapted well and is constantly by my side.  such a comfort to me.




These are the colors I am focusing on in our family room and dining room... I wanted a really earthy natural Christmas but.....I have just veered a little, I mean a lot off course.  oh well..







Most of my inside decorating is finished, I think...  and all of these vintage ornaments plus a whole lot more made it out this year....


I am hoping this helps me to get started back blogging occasionally...

My blog is in dire need of a refreshing.  That is first on my list of New Year resolutions.  Sometimes I even do them....do you?

 Good to hear from you all..
Love, Mona

  1. Hi, Mona: I'm so very sorry for the loss of your beloved Bonnie! I don't have any pets since I'm so allergic, but I remember the family mutt from my adolescence and I remember how well loved he was and the hole his left in our hearts when he passed. I hope Maggie helps bring some joy into your home this season. I have seriously neglected my blog for the last two years. I got a new job and the added responsibilities plus a longer commute are keeping me very tired, but I really miss it. I don't make resolutions anymore. I've come to accept that in the midst of our making our plans, life happens and throws everything off track. I'm working on being more accepting of the detours. I love your decorations and look forward to more posts from you this Christmas season!

  2. Oh I am so glad that you have Maggie. She has the ministry of comfort and companionship. ☺️ Your vintage ornaments are lovely. Will you show us your finished projects? If you are like me, you are not quite finished and may never be. ; > Still, I am hoping for a weekend landing. Don't be gone too long now!

  4. Oh, these vintage ornaments are beautiful. Such treasures. My mom had red balls on her tree every year when I was growing up, and when she passed away I wanted to get some of those red balls to remember her, but never got around to taking them.

    I'm so glad to see a post from you again. :)

    love, ~Sheri
