{Beaching with the Girls}

Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls. I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls! LOL!  Web image We had a lovely meal at the Boathouse one evening. We had about an hour wait so we walked around the historic district for a bit and oh my! I found the cutest little Christmas ornament shop. I can't believe I did not take any pictures. Especially when I LOVE ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS.  There is nothing like the sound of the ocean and the clean salt air to me.  We had brunch one morning at Sliders and one can never go wrong with Grits and Shr

{It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year}

Can you believe Christmas is almost here! I was a little late this Christmas season decorating for Christmas. But it might have been a good thing because as I was bringing out the Christmas stash I found dishes I had bought last year after Christmas on sale and FORGOT I HAD THEM !!!! I felt like someone had just given me a Christmas present and I was thrilled that it was dishes! Remember.... My name is Cindy and I am a dishaholic! They went perfectly with my kitchen and dining room theme I wanted to achieve for Christmas this year. Simplicity took over at my house for Christmas with the decorating this season. Lack of time and energy seemed to be my excuse. Recently a friend of mine said she thought her new WORD for 2016 might be simple and I grabbed a hold of that for the rest of my 2015 year!

{Mad Hatter Tea Party}

Our ladies team at my church just hosted a Mad Hatter Tea Party and we had so much fun that I have to share with you some pictures! We had singing, laughter, a wonderful message and our decorating was OVER THE TOP I must say! We have some gifted, talented and artistic women among us! We based our Mad Hatter theme on this verse. I think it was perfect since sweet little Alice in Wonderland had no clue what direction she was going in as she falling don't you?  Why we even had our own Alice in Wonderland. We had so many decorations that I wish I could show you them all but here's a few.... One of our talented ladies created our place mats for the tables....too cute! Another talented lady made the scrolls that had our Bible verse on it and each had a key tied onto it.  A few more decorative pieces... And just look at our tree...isn't she lovely? Some of us dressed the part and it was so much fun!
