My creation

My favorite time of year.  This is the first time I am saying it this year, MERRY CHRISTMAS.

"Santa Claus brought me presents,
But Christ gave His life for me"

The first time I heard this song, I cried. A lovely reminder for the real reason for the season. A good way to begin this Christmas season. The song for this post is,  WHERE'S THE LINE TO SEE JESUS?

All the photographs and artwork on this post belong to me, and now they belong to you.  Please feel free to take home any image for your own personal use.

I love the illustrations in this post, both the photos and the art work. Did you create any of the art work? Very creative.
I got my first Christmas card in the mail yesterday. Hurray!

It really is a magical time of year!! I haven't received any Christmas cards yet, but that does seem to be the start of things!

Your decorations look so pretty, I love the banner and all the sparkliness! {No such word!!}. Beautiful song!

Happy Holidays, Karen!

You always inspire me and these photos are especially beautiful! I love seeing the little bunny in the snow next to the tree! And I got my first Christmas card this week, too! It makes me happy! ♥

I had never heard that song and will have to go back and listen to it properly. I love how you gild the lily, Karen. So beautiful! We want to see pictures of your lovely home as you have time. Your taste is impeccable!

The season is upon us. We are almost finished decorating. The only thing left to do is get the ornaments on the tree.

Karen you make every day magical for me. You share your love with us so openly.

Happy Pink Saturday, dear friend.
