As I scanned through my friends posts on Facebook I came across the most adorable interpretation of a Christmas Tree...From what I can tell from where I came in on the story is that Sue at Reblinged was asking her Facebook friends to help name her creation…I read a few of the comments and there were several clever suggestions…However, I agree with Sue and have to say that there was absolutely no other choice…So let me introduce you to Audtree Hepburn! Isn’t she a knockout!

How sweet it is to watch the faces of the children when they see the big tree in the lobby of the church. This year we decided to go with a new theme and it is sweet if I do say so myself.
…Snowflakes and Cupcakes!
…Colorful Coned Shaped Trees!
…Houses covered in frosting and gumdrops!
…Candy Canes Twisted and Swirled!
…Glittery Snowflakes with colorful sprinkles!
Cupcakes that would satisfy any sweet tooth!
I can’t wait to see the kids faces light up when they see the tree for the first time this weekend.
Thanks to Sherry at Fabulous 50's for this beautiful pictorial of the Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill. A true labor of love and worthy of today's Christmas reblog...Merry Christmas y'all!
I have a thing for trees…all shapes and sizes. I especially like the cone shaped trees you see during the Christmas season. Here are a few that a friend and I made today. They are part of our Christmas Tree themed decor at church.
All you need to make these festive trees are a few cone shaped tree forms. You can use Styrofoam, Paper Mache or Grapevine forms. You can even make your own if you are feeling especially crafty. Next you will need fabric pins and floral wire. Finally, you will need some fabric or burlap ribbon, and lots of bling on a string.
The point of making any craft is to let your personality shine through. Remember to have fun!
Every day this month I am going to reblog one post that screams Christmas...And this one form The Worlds top 10 of Anything and Everything! does just that. This post has captured some of the most unusual Christmas Trees I have ever seen. Each one is more amazing than the one before it...I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Merry Christmas!
I am not sure who or what determines when you graduate from amateur to expert wino… I was a wine Rep for one of the premiere wine distributors in the Houston area in the late 80′s. Although my palette received an excellent education, I left the industry before I received my degree…My enthusiasm for good wine has continued through the years. Although back in the day I enjoyed Big Bad California Cabernet’s and Oakey Toasty Chardonnay’s…Now I prefer softer reds; Merlot, Pinot Noir and dare I say a Blend…I rarely drink white.
Today I spent more time doing less and accomplished more in the end…
Time spent in thoughtful reflection can bring you to a place that no amount of rushing and running around will ever do…being busy can be counter-productive.
