I have a new stocking with a BELL ON THE TOE....

HEY, EVERYONE 
A WHOLE NEW YEAR....can you believe it ? I am so tickled to start a new year with Mr. Sweet, a new home coming soon, my beautiful family all healthy and near....well, except for one grand living in Portland. He is healthy and happy and that's all I ask. :) We are already planning a trip to see him in the summer.

Regarding my 75th birthday celebration....
I have a few photos...on my DESK TOP, which just DIED.
Naturally, I deleted the photos off my camera...
sooo....
I'll show the photos WHEN I CAN.......
or IF I CAN RESCUE THEM.
***
Potpourri  is a mixture of dried, naturally fragrant plant material, used to provide a gentle natural scent inside buildings, most commonly in residential settings. It is usually placed in a decorative (often wooden) bowl, or tied in small sachet made from sheer fabric.
OR
  it can be placed in the CUTEST OF STOCKINGS....

...just like the one
I WON...
just before Christmas.


Isn't this just precious !!

It has a golden BELL on the toe....

I just LOOOOVE it.

And sorry to hear about your computer. I hate it when that happens. But - computers do die, so I guess it's just something we have to learn to prepare for. :-(
