Your Advent Calendar πŸŽ„ Day 20

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Today’s door is rather simple – but still beautiful 😍 And so is the surprise behind it! πŸ€—

There’s something about it, don’t you think? ☺️

I do wonder why the handle is so low? πŸ˜… I just noticed that…any ideas? 🧐

Anyway- time to reveal today’s surprise – Christmas Trees from 100 years ago 😍

I love this picture so much! πŸ’œ

I wish you a wonderful, fabulous, sparkly Holiday season πŸ’•πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Day 16 already? 😳 I’m sure you have things to do! So, without further ado…let’s open Door #16 πŸ€—

And what did we find? Snowy pictures β˜ƒοΈ

After yesterday’s snow event I took my camera out, and took photos of everything that caught my eye 😊 Here are a few for your viewing pleasure…

An interesting snow-pattern on our patio 😍
Snow on a pine tree πŸŽ„ Is there anything more beautiful?

Your Advent Calendar πŸŽ„ Day 10

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Let’s see what’s behind Door #10 😁

Wait a minute…Door #10? That means it’s only 2 weeks till Christmas Eve 😳 I better get moving! There’s still a lot of room under the tree πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

But now…let’s open this door

And what do we find?

The Christmas Ship 😍

Isn’t it breathtaking?

According to the Oregon website, this ship is part of the annual Christmas parade. This beautiful event dates back to 1954, and can be admired for 2 weeks in December in Portland.

I just added this to my bucket list 😊

I wish you a wonderful, fabulous, sparkly Holiday season πŸ’•πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΌ

A Walk By The Lake On A Sunny Day 😎

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Today we got to enjoy a rare, gorgeous November day 😍

Too beautiful to spend all of it inside. So we explored the area a bit, and discovered a beautiful lake, not far from our house.

Who knew? πŸ˜…

Here are some impressions of the lovely scenery…


The geese were very cooperative!
Here I tried to get them in flight…but they were too fast. πŸ˜„
It kinda looks like they’re dancing for me, doesn’t it? 😊
I love Sycamore trees 😍
I do wish the trash cans weren’t so bright πŸ˜†
On the way home – the clouds were moving in

I hope you enjoyed this little view of Kansas πŸ™‚

Until next time πŸ’•

❄️A ❄️ Picture ❄️ Perfect ❄️ Morning β„️

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

For days now the weather guy has warned us of the ‘Winter storm’ headed this way.

Well, when I took the dogs out last night, there wasn’t much of anything…even the grass still peeked through a light dusting. But when I went outside this morning, everything had changed. I was greeted by this view…

The owl is wearing a hat…

…and our ‘Welcome’ bear a mask – I wonder what he’s up to πŸ˜‹

The neighborhood kids got busy πŸ˜ƒ

For me there are not many things more beautiful than a snow-covered Pine Tree

I don’t think Pearl, the cat, cares 😁

The Wisteria branches are a work of art 😍

Now I shut up, and let you enjoy the scenery 😊

(There’s nothing wrong with your eyes – it was early, and still somewhat dark-ish πŸ™‚)

I hope you enjoyed the stroll through our Winter Wonderland πŸ’œ

I wish you a wonderful weekend! πŸ’•

Looking back…and forward πŸ˜Š

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•
I hope this finds you well! Did you have a nice holiday season? πŸŽ„β›„οΈ
I wish you a very happy and successful 2019! May it be as fabulous as you are 😍

You may have noticed that I took a little break on here.
Note to self: Don’t do that again! πŸ™ˆ It’s really hard to find the way back – even though I enjoy it immensely. Finding a perfect re-starting point…well, didn’t happen.
So I’m just gonna tell/show you what I’ve been up to over the last few weeks. 😁

I did a few craft shows – here’s a picture of the very last one. It was at my friend Donna’s house. She makes the most amazing canned goods, and was so sweet to host a ‘Maker’s Market’ at her house. 😊

 

In between shows I was busy creating new pretties for the next one.

 In December we had some friends over for a wonderful ‘Holiday Party’. πŸ˜πŸŽ„πŸ₯³
I made a German/Hungarian Beef Stew.  Judging by the empty bowls… it was delicious.🀩

 

One of my goals for the coming year is to take my camera with me more, and show you some pictures from around here. We’re off to a great beginning – here are my two favorites from the first outing.

Sycamores  – I love them! 😍

 

Some em….pretty things (if you know what they’re called, please let me know) 😊

 

I made my first felted hat!
At this point hubby really doubted that I knew what I was doing πŸ˜‚

But – it turned out well  πŸ˜ƒ More on that later.

 Oh…one more blogging goal….I wanna learn (and share) about all the amazing art out there. I’m thinking a ‘Weekly Gallery’  πŸž What are your thoughts on that?

Before you leave – here’s the first hat of 2019. It’s a Pixie πŸ§šπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Hat to symbolize the hope for a magical new year 🀩

 Alright my friends – this was it in a nutshell. It’s good to be back! πŸ€—
I hope to see you again soon. πŸ’•

Will You Take A Walk With Me? πŸ˜ŽπŸπŸŒ³

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Lansing, KS is not your typical pretty ‘Small-Town-America’. But in the Fall it turns into a canvas for Mother Nature most beautiful work. 😍

It’s a sunny, crisp morning, so I took my camera with me on my daily walk.

Here are some pictures of the delightful sights I’m lucky enough to see every day 😊

Straight out the door stands this beauty

These pictures speak for themselves

There’s a little frost on the ground

As the sun went higher, more and more colors came to life

The little creek was really flowing after the rains two weeks ago. Now…not so much

Sunshine and a little green fairy πŸ§šπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

This one made me chuckle πŸ˜„

I hope you enjoyed our little stroll 🍁

Do you have a lot of Fall colors in your neck of the woods? Let me know…I’d love to hear/see what’s outside your door! πŸ’•
