A small Tree.

This is a fiber optic tree we are using in this corner, is the second year I decorated, is small but we seems to like this tree and the light changes, it has snowflakes, little boots, ribbons, balls, angels, and more. Is adorable. My other tree is bigger, I will take some more pictures later. Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!

Cookies and Tea.

How nice the Christmas season!! At the beginning of December I just pulled out a few pieces like this cookie jar, and the tea pot, and were delighted with what I got last year as gifts from my dear friends, the Christmas Spirit was starting to fill our hearts.


A picture made with fabric and paper.
With Chinese writing, i added a gold frame but forget to take the picture before it was sold. I will try another one later.


This Vintage picture was made using an old frame, fabric, two little frames same size. old post cards and poinsettias. They are lovely pictures of Santa and children.

A Sweet Fairy.

Created to fulfill a girls dreams, this Little fairy is made of lace, ribbons and more...
I think is adorable!!!

During The Fall around here

I did some Quiches and Pumpkin pies last week, a good idea to start the season...

This are leaves from the trees by our house, I have several of them drying to do some arrangement later.

The picture of the house was taken driving around, I always pass through here and admired this style of architecture .

The other picture is an arrangement of our Mantel with candles and pumpkins at home, is always different.

Is Halloween yet?

Our cat Tiger had made his spot in a corner, and there you can see a few cards I got for send in the mail for Halloween, also some nice spiders I'm sure I will use in the decorations.
Do you celebrate Halloween or at least participate with the children around your Neighbourhood?? Sure is fun.

A Picture Box.

I got this Pictures Box on a sale two weeks ago. I'm looking for ways to transform it and give it that special touch. It is a nice wood box, but not sure if I want to leave it as it is. Just thinking!!!!!


Showing some of the Chrysanthemums or Mums i got for this season. The Chrysanthemums require good irrigation and can be maintained during the winter by watering them occasionally. I love these flowers, even though mine are still opening. They are plants which give much joy and are very common in this time of year.

Mostrandoles algunas de las plantas que he adquirido para esta temporada. Los Chrysanthemums requieren buen riego y pueden mantenerse durante el invierno si se les riega de vez en cuando. Me encantan estas flores, aunque las mias aun estan abriendose. Son plantas que dan mucha alegria y son muy comunes en esta epoca del ano.

Autumn is here.

I love the Autumn, when the days are clear and sunny and the nights cool and crisp, provide an almost irresistible lure to those who enjoy the outdoors. This type of weather is also the most favorable for a spectacular show of autumn colors, making this season of the year still more delightful.
My first home decorations for the season, although I have not had enough time to do more. Wanted to show a little of them. Most of these gourds are dried in the sun and still show their natural colors. The largest pumpkin is natural but I also added a bit of decoupage to give a more striking color, some ornaments as well like angels and sun. I like the effect.

Mis primeras decoraciones en casa para la temporada,aunque no he tenido el tiempo suficiente para hacer mas.
Queria mostrarles un poquito de ellas. La mayoria de estas calabazas (Gourds) estan secadas al sol y muestran sus colores naturales. La calabaza mas grande es natural tambien pero le agregue un poco de decoupage para darle un color mas llamativo ademas de colocarles algunos adornos como angeles y soles. Me gusto el efecto.
