Winter Wreath Love-which would you choose?


   Since the weather has turned cold here in NC, its put my mind towards a winter wreath for the front door.

   My door is black with pewter hardware , so its rather subtle:)  I feel like I need a little Zing to perk it up..

   I looked at many wreaths for inspiration and these are the ones I choose .  Now of course I'll use different elements and bow colors as it isn't nice to be a total copy cat...

   I'll show ya the door first and then the wreaths I like... I'd love it if in your comment, your say which one you'd choose..

  Next week, I'll show the one I made and let ya know how many votes folks gave to each choice..

here we go...................




now , pretty please, help me decide which wreath would look best..
thanks in advance





see what I mean about rather indented and sorta plain?   so needless to say I need something that will really POP and show up..



   Happy Friday and Have a great weekend...
 I'll be back by tuesday to show my rendition..

 as always thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment..  they make me SMILE

New Year- New Rental Home



 Happy 2016 Everyone.


 May we all be blessed with good health, joy and PEACE~!

 All my holiday company has gone home.  We had a wonderful time and I am grateful to have been able to spend time with these folks as many of them are getting up in age.

  The decorations are all down and stored away for next year. The house is clean and I'm working on my winter decor.

  I bought a new rental property in early november.  I had it painted throughout and professionally cleaned during december and it goes up for rent the 5th of January.. As with the other 2 I have, this one is listed through a management company so I dont get any phone calls- they do lol.
Great room with gas fireplace, dining area, kitchen with attached laundry section and storage pantry, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths , den/office, nice wooded surroundings, giant size fenced area for dogs to play, seperate fenced in playground and pool..I'd live in it if I didn't already have a place:-)

so on to the fun part-- Photos:-)
 I labeled the rooms so I wont get too wordy about them:)

 I had several gallons of paint left over from other projects so I had the painted use them in this home.












  The management company is going over the 5 applicants and one will be chosen tommorrow.
 They've done well as to who they've chosen for the other 2 homes so I'll leave it in their capable hands..
  I have my eye on 3 other properties but I wont rush into anything till maybe early april.  Then I think 4 will be my limit.  One of them is a foreclosure and dealing with banks and how slowly they move on such things is nerve wreaking lol...  But it does have a major advantage,, PRICE..
 I'd like to have one thats only a 1 or 2 bedroom and advertise it for seniors only.  But , we shall see.

  thanks so looking and as always your comments are sincerely appreciated.

Happy 2016 to us ALL~!

Babies for Christmas UPDATED w/photos


 Hi There~!

I'll be having company for the next 8 days so I won't be posting much.
You all are probably a lot like me, in that you are in Christmas Overload:)
I've seen so many beautifully decorated homes--  crafts to try for next year--
recipes I'll be passing on to my daughter, since she's the best baker
 and just Holiday Galore photos.

Since so many of you have written and asked about Baby Carter- this years Christmas Baby,
I thought I'd let you take a tour of Babies I have made.
I used to sell on ebay but that got to be just too stressful to the point I could barely sleep and rarely ate.. Yes, I am compulsive.
Now I only make Custom Order Babies, each is a One of a Kind. I never duplicate them.

In case anyone is interested in having a baby of their own , you can reach me at::
my email addy  , and we'll discuss it.

warning in advance-- these are custom made- one of a kind and it takes me approx. 6 weeks to make a Baby.  However, they are Lifetime Babies:) so its worth the wait..

For now, I hope you'll enjoy seeing the babies who have already found their Forever Home.

Merry Christmas to each of you ~! May you be blessed with good health, happiness and a Grateful heart.
Sonny
