A Kwik Christmas Kitchen Craft

With the bedroom looking I thought I would make a start in the kitchen
I have some very boring white containers that I thought needed a bit of sprucing up.

So I searched through my craft supplies and found some 
lace covered Burlap... felt...gingham fabric and some buttons .. 

A bit of sewing and glueing....And voila...
quick and easy sleeves that slide on and off the containers.

I even made one for the napkin holder

They look so pretty on the kitchen counters

Festive Bedroom....

Well...I almost made it to Dec 1st...but I gave in and the Christmas decorating has begun.

I usually start with the living room ...but this year MrD has decided to have a real tree and we have to wait til the weekend to get I started with the bedroom

I love the colours of my quilt... 

and Teddy the Talking Teddy looks quite at home reading the 'The Night Before Christmas' 

I decorated the bedhead with a garland I got from the discount store for $1...
and glued on some little pinecones

I added some  little decorations.....

that I bought in the sales last January for 40 cents each

A few more touches around the room... and it feels really Christmasy. 

Perhaps we should sleep in the Living room so it keeps looking this way...

Thanksgiving Travel

So we finally got on the road to travel the 280 miles to spend Thanksgiving with my Sissy and her family...and boy did we time it wrong...

Yes...we were in the middle of this! It took us over two and a half hours to travel 30 miles. Horrendous! the young lady in the video...I found a radio station playing Christmas I was happy....but...
Hubbys smile kinda says it all!

Fantastic Feast...and Beasts

I was so chuffed that hubby took off from work early...and took me to dinner and a movie.

After a delicious meal of a not too spicy Fiesta Chicken ....... we saw  JK Rowling's 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'. It was very good... especially in 3D

Then it was home to start thinking of what to pack for our trip to spend Thanksgiving with 
the wonderful friend I call Sissy... who introduced me to my lovely hubby. 

Do you think Hubby will fit in the case?

Memories of Laughter

Ten years today we lost you...and admit today I shed a few tears. 

You brought so much laughter into the world...

always wanting to make people happy...

and hear them giggle.

So...amongst the tears it was hard not to smile. 

 Until we meet again Dad

 Love you and miss you always

I cant believe its been two years since I left my home in Wales and traveled to California to start a new life with the love of my life. 

It was the biggest...and most difficult decision I have ever had to make as I would be so far away from my family...especially my children

But,  apart from missing my children..they have been the happiest years of my life. I havent regretted it for a second. I am so blessed to have the life I have..with the best husband a girl could wish for. And its wonderful to know..that my family are happy for me too.

Love and Hugs
