KNOCK MY SOX OFF....12/2011


I have a little thing I try to do each month,
highlighting a few of the most talented people in the world....
BLOGGERETTES....
you people can
sing, dance, paint, write poetry, do a handstand, decorate, cook,
ride horses, ski, yodel, play a guitar. make hand puppets, pat your head and rub your tummy at the same time,  do YOGA........
YOU CAN DO ANYTHING .
Ya'll, every single one, just.....
KNOCK MY SOX OFF
I just wish I could highlight every one but
I don't have time, ya'll....
I gotta get ready for my NEW YEAR'S EVE party, don'tchaknow....!!
I fell in love with her BELIEVE blocks.
YEP....I lost my sox on this one.
http://craftedniche.com/2011/12/08/mason-jar-pendant-light/#comment-1671
Isn't this the cutest light....and she tells us how to do it.
DEBBIE at CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT....
FRENCH TICKING stockings.....be still, my heart.
If you haven't been by to see Debbie in awhile, she has some awesome
posts to show you.





I just LOVE how DEBBIE incorporated the olden books in with her Christmas decorating.
shhhhh......I copied this one.....

I didn't tear up any books...I asked my favorite thrift shop to save any books with the covers about to come off.....they usually throw them away but if you ask, they might save some for you, too. 






KARIE of
KARIES CHIC CREATIONS
did a great job on this chest.
To see the BEFORE, go by her place...

and would you tell her bj
said HEY ?



The Charm of Home
had this most delightful tree.

Did you notice.......
it is sitting in a
vintage wicker baby carriage.

The talents of these ladies just really do
KNOCK MY SOX OFF.
 OK, please, someone help me here....
I thought this was the prettiest photo and now......I can't remember what blog I stole it from....so sorry.
The tree looks sooo pretty...and the bed in the background.....luscious.
Several friends came to my rescue and let me know this vision above belongs to
COURTNEY at FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE.
This is the beautiful, snowy home of my daughter, STACY LEIGH.
It's even prettier INSIDE....
...i love you, stacy leigh


If you've not been to visit DEBBIE at MOUNTAIN BREATHS,
you owe it to yourself to GO.



Wonderful recipes...
awesome photos....




She has an awesome collection of
MACKENZIE CHILDS  COURTLY CHECK....
Her decorated Christmas tree looks like it came right out of the catalog...
and don't forget to take a look at THAT TABLE....
.....THIS, my friends, is the stuff dreams are made of.
WHAT A WOMAN...
she takes her COURTLY CHECK on picnics. !!
And, judging from that view, I see where she got the fabulous name
for her blog.....MOUNTAIN BREATHS......just beautiful.
Leave it up to our KIM of SAVVY SOUTHERN STYLE to have a positively
ADORABLE CHRISTMAS PILLOW that has little long,
red and white stripped  stockinged legs hanging from it.
I love this little cheery pillow.
PAT'S
WINTER WONDERLAND tablescape just takes my breath away.
Such beautiful colors....
she has no snow ON CROOKED CREEK, so she made
it snow  inside her cottage.
I KNOW she did 'cause I see all kinds of beautiful SNOWFLAKES on her table.:)
Beautiful table, Pat...I know your Mr. Ed liked it, too.
 These awesome hooks are only a PART of what MISS MUSTARD SEED is up to...
Go by and check it out and then do like me........want to copy it for YOUR room.
SHE says "happiness is a row of hooks......"
"...ooo, Mr. Sweeeeet, do you have your tape measure handy...??" I NEED HOOKS !



I think I would have to look long and far to find a prettier
HAPPY NEW YEAR TABLE........
AROUND THE HOUSE has more pretty photos of this awesome table.
Photos just full of sparkle and glitter....
shine and twinkles....
So pretty, PHYLLIS


Please feel free to take the
I WAS FEATURED
button on your left.....just add my blog link back to it, if you please.


HAPPIEST NEW YEAR TO ALL....
