…thoughts from my heart on my love for God, family and the care and decorating of our home

Thursday, December 16, 2010


I was so blessed to be a winner of one of Carol’s Christmas Giveaways (Firecrackerkid Primitives).  What an awesome early Christmas gift – a Rolling Pin Dough Bowl Cubby!  When the box arrived my DH opened it for me, while I was putting the grandbaby down for a nap.  Thankfully he knew to stop when he took it out of the box and saw this beautiful presentation!

It was almost too beautiful to unwrap.

But I got over that real quick because I couldn’t wait to check it our further.  Here it is in all it’s glory!
Isn’t it gorgeous?

I put together a quick little gathering, just so you could see it with a rolling pin and bowl – and a touch of Christmas, of course!

Oh my – so many display possibilities!

Carol thank you from the bottom of my heart for blessing me with this awesome treasure.  I LOVE IT!

Check out Carol’s blog
Firecrackerkid Primitives and follow her links to her selling sights.  Words cannot describe the treasures you will find.  You will just have to take a look!

It is so nice to have all of the decorating done and be able to relax and enjoy it for a while.  I’ve also just about finished my shopping and have wrapped everything that has been bought.  I plan to finish the shopping tomorrow and will hopefully have a week to enjoy the season without a lot of stress.  I hope you are all enjoying this blessed Christmas season.

Christmas Blessings,
