The End of the Year

It's been a very eventful year around the end of 2015, I am looking forward to this next year..

An update on the little red is my son's son wearing the coat...maybe it has found it's final resting place.  the end of the line and the one it was purposed for...  I gave these pictures to my son for was a surprise..made my heart glad..very glad.  the coat I sewed for his daddy, he now has it on....

   And then we switch gears and have Christmas morning with the two of us....
we gift each other with bedroom shoes and perfume and enjoy being's the simple things we have come to treasure so much..loving each other is just so right...

I have set a lot of tables this month...some I photographed, some I did not..Nevertheless, the table has been a bright spot all month.....

on a side note, NEVERTHELESS...that is my new word for the year......

A lot has happened over this past year, NEVERTHELESS, we are thankful for life and for each other and our children and grandchildren..and lots of other things too...

Our town......downtown at Christmas...and just because I love this picture and wanted to share it with all of you....I am thankful for you...

Happy New Year..  2016..
It's gonna be a good one!



  1. Your grandson looks adorable in the little red coat. You had a good idea for making a memory. Your home looks so Christmas cozy...magazine worthy! Your downtown looks like Bedford Falls. I enjoyed my visit and I share your optimism for 2016. I think. LOL!

  2. HAPPY NEW YEAR, Mona!

    May you be blessed with good health, laughter, love and peace in the coming new year and beyond.

  3. Christmas looks wonderful at your home and the grands are beautiful.
    Wishing you a most wonderful new year.
    Hugs to you Mona

  4. Lovely Christmas decor and town. Your grands are adorable and how nice that the little red coat lives on. May God richly bless you and your family in the new year!

  5. I've loved reading of a family that honors and loves one another. A family that celebrates its history by preserving special gifts for the next generation. A family that can model its behavior on a beautiful love story that stays true through the decades. Now that's a good read! I think that you should print and frame the black and white of downtown. It's very special. Thanks for inviting us in for a Christmas moment.
    Love, Cherry Kay

  6. Your home looks beautiful and anything that involves grandsons steals my heart.
    I love mine so!
    Happy New Year!

  7. What a lovely post full of love and what's important. Your grands are adorable. Those smiles are precious.
    I felt the warmth and love in your home that touches my heart.
    What a great idea to photograph your downtown. I'm copying your idea next year. Mary Kay's suggestion to frame it is great.
