Celebrating Women for the Real World



Stuff Portrait Friday

I’m finally playing this week! Kristine over at Random and Odd, has instructed us to take a picture of the following:

Your favorite wrapped present:

We have so many great nieces and nephews that I get to continue to enjoy the young kids things during Christmas time. I made these gift sacks out of grocery bags and I just love how they turned out.

Something new you added to your decorations this year:


Ok, I’ll admit this was an impulse buy, but I couldn’t resist when I walked next to them. We have a court yard at our entry and I have always told Big G I would like a lamp post for it. I guess this is as close as I’m going to get…LOL.

You’re Christmas cards:



There is nothing exciting on the Christmas card front. All I do is put them in this sled as they arrive. I have no creativity here but one of my friends saves her Christmas cards and puts them on her tree instead of ornaments; would you believe that it is beautiful.

And I’m throwing in the tree…just because!

    Gorgeous Tree!!! Love it.

    As for the cards: I used to put them up on the wall around an archway or doorway… it looked really pretty and I always got compliments. But in the past 2 years I’ve put them either in a sleigh decoration or a big gold basket with a bow – and I really like this much better. This is how I do it from now on. 🙂

    We later use the cards for craft projects with the kids.

    The gift bags are really cute. The tree looks great too but look at that shine on the floor. Wish mine looked like that.
