Merry Christmas!!!

Here’s hoping that you are all having a wonderful day!  I know that most of you girls are busy busy today and won’t be getting online but I just HAD HAD to post THIS!!

O.M.G.!!  I have the best the most wonderful daughter in the whole entire world.  She made something just for her Mommy for Christmas.

Have you ever gotten one of those wonderful things that is just so yummy that you can only gasp when you first see it? 

I had wanted a “something” similar to this that I had seen online but it was outrageously expensive.   Okay okay……here it is!



The little doggie is vintage.  She sacrificed one of her favorites for my box! 



Doesn’t he have the cutest face ever!


Look at the super cute papers and ribbons that she used on the box!


She even papered the inside with pages from an old book!

I can’t even use enough exclamation marks to express my excitement!!!!!!!!!!!!

So this will be staying out year round.  Oh you bet ya!

So…….are you girls ready for another craft night in January?  Heather and I sure are.  We’re thinking that the boxes would be a perfect project.  I know that December turned out to be inconvenient for some due to other obligations.  Hopefully January will be better for everyone.  E-mail me!  You know “the drill!”

Merry Christmas to Everyone! 



  1. Oh my goodness, the box is so beautiful. I love it, love it. What a special daughter you have and I can imagine just how much you adore her gift.
    Here's wishing you a Happy New Year!


  2. Oh my goodness, Denise!!!! That is so beautiful...I'd say your daughter is well on her way to a mixed media/assemblage future..what an eye she has for putting all the elements together.

    I would be as excited as you...I know it will have a special place in your home so you see it every day. :0)

    Have a lovely day and be sure to visit me tomorrow for PiNk Saturday..It's just Thomas and I these days and...he's gone so much that now that we have two weeks of time we have been painting! Oh, it looks so good!


  3. So gorgeous! What a wonderfully talented...and sweet...daughter you have. Glad you had a great Christmas!


  4. Hey Denise,

    Seriously, we are looking into buying a cabin for an investment since rentals are always in demand in the Smokies...and I'm only 5 miles from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. But a Bed & Breakfast would be so neat to own, wouldn't it?! We could decorate each room with a different theme..that would be fun. :0)

    I had to laugh when I noticed in your profile that "Under the Tuscan Sun" is one of your favorite movies...mine too! I don't know how many times I've watched such a good story. :0) And I really like Diane Lane.

    Stay Warm,

  5. I LOVE it! She is incredibly talented and creative. Such a wonderful gift!

  6. Eeeeeeeeeeeeek! I love it!! How special!

    I wish I lived closer so I could come for craft night!

  8. Oh what an adorable gift. She did do good!

  9. Great Gift. It is so nice that your daughter knew the perfect gift. It is always nice when you know how much thought went in to something.

  10. oh what a wonderful gift from the heart and hands!! i love it! while looking at your previous post, i now realise you are from Oklahoma (where the wind comes sweeping down the plains)...yesterday my daughter and son-in-law have just left for ok. city where he will attend air traffic control school for 3 months...they were pretty nervous about all the SNOW, considering they are "southern" born and bread!! it looks beautiful to me. i love snow!! but not to drive in! happy new year to you!

  11. That is the sweetest little box. You two are so talented, it's just a joy to visit your blog. I'm glad you got a white Christmas too. Beautiful photos. Happy New Year!

  12. Isn't that the best thing ever???!!! I love anything that was made just for me but when it comes from one of my children (or my mother too) my heart just melts! She did a fantastic job and you can tell she was picking out things to add to it with you in mind. You lucky girl!!

    Hope you had a great Christmas! Wishing you all the best for 2010!x
