|This is the Santa I sent one of my favorite people, Karen Valentine of Valentine Design. She is such a sweet wonderful person that she actually posted a very sweet story about her gift. That's why I love to just give my Santas to friends like Karen, she made me feel that she really appreciated my gift which made it all worth it.|
|These are her photos from her website, her photos are so much prettier than mine! Another thing to add to my "what to learn in 2011."|
|Don't you love the white border she puts around her photos!|
|I'm glad you liked him Karen, Merry Christmas!|

|After all the holiday events, hugs and buffets, I ended up getting sick. So feeling cooped up and bored to death of daytime TV I started making a pink Santa? Well of coarse a pink Santa! Who doesn't have a pink Santa!|
|Wouldn't ya love to have a pink Cadi, put down the top and go someplace , any place with a car full of girlfriends! When I found the Cadillac it was the focal point of this Santa!|

|Twas the night before the party and all through the house,|
|Not a creature was stirring except Moses the louse!|
|All the pieces have been glued and I was so filled with glee, when I picked up the Santa and OMG felt pee! So I screamed, and said oh what do I do, what I wanted to do was to give Moses my shoe.|

|I know I can't believe I already have Christmas up, it's still November! But my creative friend Susan said the only day she had available was this past Sunday so I jumped at the chance to have her help! My sweet friend Susie the elf helped too! So between the three of us it took from 9am to 6pm! We were exhausted but it turned out beautiful!|
|This photo doesn't even give justice to how beautiful the tree looked. I need to get my friend Charlene over here and take some better shots!|
|This is the mantle in the living room with of coarse..another Santa!|

|I love Christmas time and I love giving friends and loved ones my Santas. This is my favorite Santa that I've made so far. It's a Harry Potter Santa! I loved making all the text books but the "sorting hat" took several attempts. I kept this one!|
|I wish I could say that this is only the second Santa that I have kept but it's one of many that I just couldn't let go of! I have my work cut out for me this year, I have 3 more to make and deliver before Christmas! Yikes!|

|When I think of the holidays I think of time with family so it got me thinking, why not show some family wedding portraits! These photos span through out the years but one thing seems to remain the same, the father of the bride is usually not smiling! Is he thinking about the bill or do his feet just hurt in those fancy shoes??? Hope you enjoy the photos!|

It's my first giveaway and it's in honor of October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It's a pink belt buckle that's been bejeweled with everything I could find. I'd like to think the ballerina symbolizes getting back on your toes and recovering from treatment or maybe being on "point" to do self breast exams! I've put a couple of other little things to go with it including a vintage 3 strand of pearls.
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, the winner will be picked on October 30th! I would also love it if you could grab my giveaway button and put it on your blog to help me spread the word. Please have a look around my blog while you are here. I'm a new to Blogland so I'd love to make some new friends! Thanks for stopping by!

She'd been raised to have poise, modest with grace, but right now she was enjoying the sun on her face. She felt one with with nature, inhibitions gone, when a voice out of the clouds said "Stella put your clothes back on!" She looked at the man like he was from mars, said, "Oh what's the fuss, now pass me that jar." He looked at her and then back at the jar, then realized it was the one he snuck home from the bar. He knew he'd be in trouble when she woke from this bubble so he stripped off his clothes and poured himself a double.
They woke the next morning in a moonshine haze and a smile came to his face when he gave her a gaze. She laid next to him in a field of flowers, then she shot up like a bolt and said "church starts in an hour!" The girl in the field ran into the house, only to run out as a small church mouse. A she sat in the pew her head thick as tar, she wanted to know what was in that jar! It had the kick of a mule but it made her feel free, she needed to find out who the gift angel could be!
When she got home from church her husband's head low, oh she's gonna be mad, I'm gonna sleep in the car! But she shocked him for the first time since they'd wed under the stars, when she smiled sweetly and said "did you bring home that jar?"

|Wilma and Edna, twin sisters but nothing alike. Wilma's hair had curls and poor Edna's had spikes. So when Wilma got married her veil was as soft as a cat, while ol' Edna's veil looked like an old shower cap.Wilma married an actor with sunny hair and blue eyes, Edna married for love, when he proposed she even cried.|

Wow what a wonderful birthday trip! We were 5 crazy girls from Fort Worth in an adorable little house...with only one bathroom! We shopped for days till I thought we would just drop but we would go back to our little cottage to sleep and dream of all the things to look for the next day!
|We met wonderful, precious people, who invited us to the best parties....|
|We ate at Royers about 100 times, Bud was a doll as usual and the food is always beyond fabulous. That's where we had my birthday party, it was so much fun the entire restaurant got involved!|
But, the fun really started when we went to the Junk Gypsy Prom!! I didn't think we'd ever leave the house we were laughing at each other so hard putting on our wild outfits. We all wore petticoats and pink cowboy hats, it's party trick to dress alike, that way it's easier to find each other!
We saw, we partied, we danced with men in formal wear,law enforcement, and then got home without having to make a phone call for bail money!!
|But then it was time to go back to Fort Worth. So it was sad seeing Round Top in my rear view mirror, but I'm gonna click my heels twice and come back in the spring! And I'm bringing my duck!|

|I loved meeting Robin and John, what a beautiful couple, I mean please, do they wake up looking that cute? I couldn't do that even on my best day in my best MP!|
|Miss Cindy after I had just bought the jacket off her back! I mean I really did buy the jacket off her back! Well, and the dress too... hey they were a set, I had to!|
|My last look of Pearl in my rear view mirror, I'll be clicking my heels together come spring cause "there's no place like Magnolia Pearl."magnoliapearl.com|
