Ashleigh Turned Three

Family, and friends gathered at my house on Sunday to celebrate Ashleigh's 3rd birthday.
It's hard to believe that Ashleigh is already three! Time has really flown by.

After cake, ice cream, and lots of gifts, Ashleigh had no time for a nap. She was having too much fun riding her new tricycle.

A Busy Summer

Well, it has been months since my last post. I was actually shocked when I realized just how long it had been! Time certainly flies when you are busy.

I spent the spring searching for a newer, larger home, and the summer packing everything up, and moving.
Moving is such a job... you don't realize just how much stuff you have until you have to pack it up, and move it, but moving a household AND a business is an even bigger job, and I didn't take any time off from working, just unpacked a little at a time!

I'm loving everything about our new home, and all of the extra room is great! One of my favorite rooms is my kitchen. I love the island, and built in lazy susans, and slide out shelves. My last home had an eat in kitchen, which meant I had to move a kitchen chair out of the way everytime I wanted to open the oven, and I had to move another chair when I wanted to open the dishwasher.... do you get the picture?? LOL

The grandbabies have their own room here now. I'm still in the process of decorating it for them.
They are growing so fast, I can't believe that Ashleighs 3rd birthday is right around the corner! I thought I would post a few pictures of them, but taking a picture of Ashleigh has become almost impossible! She usually runs away, or hides her face... must be something about turning three?!

I caught her off guard when she was in her car seat for this one. LOL

Braeden loves to have his picture taken, he smiles and "poses" as soon as he sees a camera, so I guess I better enjoy taking his photos while I can.

Sorry about the random order of photos, it's been so long since I posted, I forgot how uploading pictures works!
Have a wonderful week. I promise not to take so long to post the next time!!

A Trip To the Zoo

We had a gorgeous weekend here in South Carolina with temperatures in the low 80's. Strangely just the weekend before, parts of South Carolina had several inches of snow, and lows in the 20's and 30's!
This time of the year our weather is always a bit unpreditable, so we figured we would take advantage of this warm weekend and take the babies to the zoo.
I had forgotten how much "stuff" you have to bring along for an outing with two little ones! We had two strollers, two diaper bags, bottled water, bottled juice, AND it took two cars to carry all of us, and all of their stuff... since there were three adults, and two car seats in the back of one of the cars.
This was Braedens first stroller ride, and he seemed to enjoy it very much!

Ashleigh had never been to the zoo, and her absolute favorite thing right now is zoo animals. She has several books, and videos of zoo animals, and she gets so excited when she spots a picture of a giraffe, zebra, or elephant!
It appeared as though everyone had the same idea as us, since the zoo was more crowded than I ever remember it being in the past!
We had a hard time finding room to take many photos, but I did get a couple of sweet girl with her mommy, and daddy.

All Lanterns Are On Sale

This week all of my lanterns listed on my site are on sale for 20% off. This sale will run through February 7th. I thought I would share a few pictures of some of my favorites.
I love this unique cottage style garden candle lantern. This can hang from a post, or wall with its own wall bracket. I love the sweet little bird, and the delicate design!
Here is another design that hangs from its own wall bracket. This rooster wall lantern is perfect for any French country theme of decor.
The large white romantic lantern is the most popular style I sell. Many women have purchased this style for their wedding decor.

This smaller white scrollwork lantern with it's pretty cutwork design is another favorite choice for weddings. I think it fits in with any romantic style of decorating.

Here is another one of my personal favorites... this pretty lattice style tabletop lantern.

If you click on the links it will take you straight to the product description. I hope you enjoyed my preview of my favorites....

We Miss Him

It is an odd thing when JOY, and PAIN come so close together.... I was so happy when my sweet grandson was born on December 19th, then on December 24th I had to say goodbye to my sweet Chablis Mishka. He died at a very young age of four from cronic kidney failure.
Our house is too quiet now, and there is an emptiness that happens when a family member is gone... and you know they are not coming back. He was loved so much, and missed terribly.
