That is it, sure wish you could stop by for awhile! I'd take a picture of the front porch but the gorgoeus poinsettias I bought just two days ago are now all frozen, shriveled up and dying.

Sorry you can't come to our house until after Christmas. WE CAN'T COMPETE! Your talent FAR surpasses ours. IT LOOKS GREAT!

Can you please put your kitchen/dining room in a box and ship it COD to my home? hahahaah!

Hi Bon,
I love your pictures. So precious.

I was on my way to Ross Store after work to buy myself some glass cake stands and I drove right past it! I don't know where I thought I was going. I was so mad that I was muttering to myself. I'm sure I looked like a veritable nut. Oh well, as least I can get up early in the morning and pick them up...if they are still there!

Lunkheadedness,
Deanna :P

Bonnie, did you have any problems with your Christmas countdown clock this morning? I had to remove mine and replace it with another...boo hoo hoo...and I loved that ornament clock I had.

Bwaaaaaaah,
Deanna :(

YOU ARE AMAZING!!! I love your house. I haven't even been in it since I was little, but I still remember it. You are so talented, and you inspire me.
LOVE YOU!
