Don't Faint - I'm Still Here!!


I can hardly believe that it's been almost two months since I have posted.  Time certainly gets away from me.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are all prepared for Christmas next week. LOL


This jolly Santa was standing on the corner in my neighborhood last week. Don't know where he came from or where he went.


Have done a wee bit of Christmas decorating.


The breakfast room.


My vintage Christmas tablecloths on an old ladder.


This Amaryllis is just gorgeous!


Up until about a week ago,  my geraniums were just still so pretty. Then, we had a hard frost.


My final yellow rose of the season.


I got this small red guitar at an Estate sale and boy, have the girls enjoyed it. Here, Laynee is serenading us.  Bella just howls when they do that.  The girls think she is singing with them.


The last few months have been so busy.  My sister Jeannie has been in and out of the hospital with heart problems.  Kaycee has also with her lungs. Her insurance just approved one of those vibrating vests to wear at home. They used one quite a bit in  the hospital and it really helped. So, we'll see.

I am going to have some major eye surgery on January 4th in Oklahoma City. It's just cataract surgery but due to the other eye condition I have,  they wanted me to go to OKC to the OU Medical Center where they have the McGee Eye Institute.  So, will  be out of commission for just a few days hopefully.

Here's hoping you all have a  wonderful and happy Christmas and a great 2018. Will try harder to post more often. Special thanks to all of you who have  sent me emails checking on me.  You will never know how much I appreciate it.

Love from Judy and Santa Bella!

The Deck and Gazebo and HELP NEEDED!!


Been working alot this summer on my new deck with the gazebo.  You may remember the cute iron bench I got at Hobby Lobby.  It needed a cushion.  So, I had this old red and white quilt - quilters, don't panic, it was full of holes.  But, I thought it would work great for the bench for outside.  My geraniums have come back - guess the cool and rain did it.


I added these curtain panels which I fell in love with when I saw them at TJMaxx.  They are at all four corners of the pergola.


Don't remember where I got the red ceramic round table but the polka dotted and striped dishes all came from Home Goods.




Finally got my little storage shed about finished.  Got the lamps put on when I had the electrical work done running to the building. Also, had tons of outlets put on the inside, an air conditioner and a ceiling fan. It's a delight to look out and see it in the mornings on the deck.

HELP PLEASE!!

For quite some time, I have not been able to comment on anyone's posts or reply to anyone's comments on my blog.

At the bottom where you say REPLY, I get:

I have tried putting in my Google info but it still doesn't post.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am answering all of the comments on my blog thru email.  I'd rather have them on my blog.

Any help would be appreciated.

Kaycee is home and going strong.  My sister is doing very well.  Thanks for all of the love, prayers and support during the last month.  I felt them.

Enjoy!

Prayers and Fall in Oklahoma

First off, let me ask for your prayers and love for my great grandbaby, Kaycee.  She has been in the hospital this week with pneumonia.  My sister Jeannie is home and doing well.



Just last week, we got this antique piece of my furniture moved to the living room.  It had been in storage for a long time.  I inherited this from my aunt and uncle and have always loved it.  It is French and that's about all I know about it.  The hand painting on it is gorgeous.


I just kind of realized how drawn I am to painted furniture .....you think?????








My flowers are still going strong.  We have a few cool days, then a rain and then warm weather again.  I guess they like it.
















We were expecting some stormy weather last week.  One evening I took this photos and they are so amazing....what our God can do!!






Enjoy!  Will be back in a few days with some shopping treasures from Estate Sales.

Wedding update:

I'm sure you will be so tired of me talking about the preparations for the wedding but it is such an exciting time for us!!

Hi From Oklahoma and Exciting News.


Happy Fall to All!!

I cannot believe Summer went by so fast.  I really didn't get enough of my little ones being out of school - even if I did see them about every day!!

Thanks for all of the prayers and love sent to my sister Jeannie.  She is home and is finally getting to feel better.  God is so good!


I have done a little Fall decor but not much.













Last, but not least!!!  I have an exciting announcement!!

My precious granddaughter Tiffany, who grew up with John and I, is engaged to be married!!!


This girl is my rock!!  She is always there for me regardless of the situation and is just such a blessing from the Lord.


Remember, she is raising these three darling little girls of her sisters'.  She is so committed to them and giving them a wonderful life.  She often joked about being an old maid with three girls.  LOL

And then, in walked Adam.  What a gift he has been to her.  

They have set a wedding date of September 15, 2018 which is John's birthday.

We have chosen a venue and she has been trying on wedding dresses.  There is so much to do so you can imagine what I'll be doing for the next year.

I am so thrilled for her and Adam.  They are so truly happy.

Hopefully, I'll post a little sooner than in the past.

Have a great day!

Judy

PS:  One of my Christmas projects was featured in the new Christmas issue of Country Sampler!!
