Here are some pictures of my pink and white tree. I love this tree. I love all of the pink! Each ornament has a special meaning to me. The little victorian girl in lace and wine satin was one my daughter received when she was the flower girl in my friend's wedding. She was only three years old at the time.

Christmas is almost here! This year has flown by so fast! I was playing on the computer and I made a couple of videos. I put one on here and one on my Christmas blog. (Christmas with a southern rose) Go check it out, it is funny ,too. I laughed and laughed when I was making them! This one stars me and my son Garrett and our friends, Stevie and Hailey. I also put Sassy on here. Isn't she cute!? Just go to my playlist and turn it off before you watch the video. I hope everyone is having a great holiday season!

These are a few pictures of my Christmas tree this year. I decorated this one pretty simple this year. I'm not even through with it yet. I add a couple of things each night as I unpack them. I decided to use silk roses, silk hydrangeas and silk poinsettas. I thought that roses would be nice since I am a southern rose.
The kids and I still have to decorate the white tree in the den. We are gonna use lots of pinks and greens. I am just having to work so much now (retail at Christmas). I don't get to enjoy the holidays as much as I would like too.

Good Morning! I'm just sitting here drinking my morning coffee and trying to get my self going. The fibro is really trying to get me down today. I'm not gonna let it! We are having a get- together over at my Dad's house today for my grandma that stays in the nursing home. I will get to see my Aunts and Uncles and cousins that I haven't seen in a while. It will be so good to see them again. This will be the first time that they get to see my grandbaby. Little Jason is gonna get so many hugs and kisses today!

The mobile home I recently purchased for my 'secret' project looks a little cabin-ney. The picture of my rose garden with a picnic table in the corner....I think it could be a post card cover.
I can't believe that we are having snow in December. I stayed in all day long and wrapped gifts and decorated and listened to Christmas music. I even watched 'Miracle on 34th Street'. The one with Maureen O'Hara. I love that movie. I'm listening to Bing Crosby right now on my old stereo. It brings so many memories of my childhood Christmases when I hear him sing. I'm glad that I was off today from work so that I could enjoy the day inside...playing. I have to go now because I have to be at work in the morning at 6:30. I will probably dream of a white Christmas...

I wanted to show y'all this pretty house that I found in Hazelhurst, Ms. that is for sale. I have even been inside of it before and it is so...me. The front part of the house is cottage victorian and the back part (this was added on) is like a rustic cabin. Can you just imagine decorating this home?
Look at the ivy vines that are growing on the large window of the great-room. Looking from the inside out, it looks as if they are painted on the glass. This is such a pretty home and it is in the historic district. The only thing that I don't like is that it is on a main busy highway. I like living where I'm at because it is kind-of like living out in the country. I haven't taken many pictures of the outside of my cottage because I'm not happy with it yet. I still have so much to do. I like to look at these other homes because they give me inspiration. If I was to ever add on to my little cottage, I would like to have a rustic great-room like this one. I've always loved the warm,cozy,cabin feel of cedar and big windows.
