"Hiver" French For Winter

Dear Friends

I hope you are surviving  "Hiver" yes, French for Winter.  I decided to look for another word for it because I hate the word Winter.  I have been so sick my loving man and I at the same time, he missed entire week of work with no pay and me I missed two days with pay.  I like the word Hiver, French for Winter because I don't like using HELL, sorry!  I'm sharing what I call neutrals for Hiver because we need all the beautiful we can get during these miserable cold months.

Auld Lang Syne

Dear Friends

Auld Lang Syne or remembering things from the past!   I hope your holidays were everything your heart imagined.  Mine, I couldn't have  dreamed or imagined more! Having both my kids home during the holidays and a new bathroom!  My kids did all the work, as you already know my daughter and son-in-law could have their own show on fixing up!  They have done all the work on their beautiful home.  Don't get me wrong I know there are a lot of things to be happy about but this 4 x 4 bathroom certainly needed some updating and made this Shabbyqueen smile!  The same toilet since we bought the house and walls that have endured years of wall paper.  The before I really did not want to show, you will just have to take my word.

'Twas The Night"

Dear Friends

Merry Christmas!  Twas the night before Christmas, as I write this,  I just wanted to wish everyone a beautiful day with the ones you love.  I am feeling blessed and hope you are.  If this is the first time you have tuned in thank you, and if you have visited my blog before thank you, I hope I have kept you shabby entertained,  I'm only a simple shabby girl just trying to make this world more beautiful one shabby post at a time.

Shabby Snow Globe

Dear Friends

Merry Christmas, dear friends! I am honored to be included in my first Christmas Blog Party! Creating Christmas link party hosted by Jann at Have A Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson and fellow beautiful blogger's.  This year my Christmas is about fun and color with the inspiration of a wonder horse.  I used a lot of my same decorations but I love changing them and making Christmas decorating fun. My other inspiration was the bubble gum machine, red, turned shabby pink to make a snow globe to match my "Shabby Snow Globe" tree.

Oh What Fun

Dear Friends

How was your Thanksgiving?  I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family. Traveled home to see father, brother and my children, we had a wonderful time.   Celebrated 33 years of marriage and all I wanted was seeing my family.  Now on to my favorite time of year.  I have been decorating the tree and wanted to share one of my inspirations!  I found this old "Wonder Horse" some of you may have owned one.  This one I repainted with the help of my daughter, an old find repurposed and beautiful again. A fun before and after!  Santa is happy and " Oh What Fun It Is To Ride"! Stay tune, more shabby beautiful to come!
