Simply Sweet

I KNOW that I am so very blessed
to have one of
the
sweetest daughters in the world!!!!!!!

Thank You My Darling Daughter!
(For all of you young mommies who are struggling through temper tantrums, that last post is evidence that they DO grow out of it and turn into WONDERFUL adults. So have patience, and give them an extra hug on those days when that's the last thing you want to give them.)

Speaking of sweet, I thought I'd share some sweet little scenes from around my home.

Joy~I have that Mary-Joseph-baby statue from WM as well! Doesn't it look like a million bucks?? My mom gave it to me a few years ago and I love it. The balls in the urns are fabulous!

I look at your blog often, you've inspired me to get back into my craftiness(as i spell and call it) and I have started heading to consigment shops, yard sales, and other various places to find some not so great finds(that will be turned into great finds). I have a 1 year old daughter, and I now have hope she'll grow out of it:) Thanks for the inspiration! I'll be posting my finds!

You have a very sweet daughter and what a great Mom you are to do all of that for her. You never disappoint...everything you have done is beautiful!

I can not even pick a favorite as I love them all! I read a few comments up that your nativity on horseback came from WM? Is that right? Holy smokes~ at 1st glance I was thining Lladro! That is incredible!
What a lovely home for the holidays you have.
Merry December~ Les

Joy said...

My Joseph, Mary and Baby didn't come from WM. My mother bought it for me years ago from Fred Meyer. Maybe WM had them too?!?!
I love it because it's BIG and looks like a very expensive piece. It's one of the first decorations I take out every Christmas.

Bonnie the Boss said...

The father and son one is my fav. But you always do an amazing job.

vwestermeyer said...

I so enjoy your blog and the hacked in update from your daughter was so very sweet! As the mom of three daughters I know those moments are the icing on the cake!

I have the same HoHoHo sign!!

Carol said...

Your figurine of Mary, Joseph, & Baby Jesus is beautiful Joy! I've never seen one like it, very unique!
Blessings,
Carol

Chezza said...

I just love the Mary/Joseph on the donkey figure.

Karyn said...

Love the Ho HO HO sign. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing!

JuJu and Family said...

You are amazing. I haven't had the energy to do what you do...not that I'd have the talent, but I do enjoy decorating. Thanks for your blog, I love your designs and I love your sense of humor. It's fun to read. Thank you!

Mimi Sue said...

Aren't adult children the best? Well, most of them are anyway. Your house is very festive. Is that a Lladro figurine. It's just beautiful. Mimi

salmagundi said...

The lighting on that Nativity is just glorious! You captured the essence perfectly. Sally

Sandy Toes said...

Awwww, how sweet! What a great daughter you have and what a great mom you are! Your decorations are gorgeous! Is that a Lladro Mary and Joseph statue? If so, I'll have to make sure my mom doesn't see it or she might go insane. She loves Lladro and has many of their works, but no holiday statues. Hmmmmm....maybe it would be a good Christmas gift!
Again, everything is lovely. I adore your blog. It's so inspiring.

Wendy said...

I love the Ho Ho Ho...and you DO have a very sweet daughter!

LuLu & Co said...

You are a wonderful mother! Inspiration to all of us mothers. Thanks for the little tour of items in your home.

Kimberly said...

You two are too cute. I can't even stand it. Joy, next time I am visiting UT I have to visit your home. I had no idea you had such skills. What a sweet package you sent Alisia. She is a keeper!
