Welcome to the 4th "Sunday Favorites"

....a brand new Sunday meme!

"Sunday Favorites" is a new Sunday meme designed to give bloggers a chance to share a favorite post from the past!!!

Hello my friends! Welcome to the 4th run of "Sunday Favorites"!!!

"Sunday Favorites" is a meme designed to give bloggers an opportunity to share, once again, one of their favorite posts! I just love this idea!!! So many fabulous posts have been published...and regrettably, forgotten about...they have been buried under a myriad of previous posts. I just believe these fabulous posts deserve a second showing!!!

We must remember...each new day in Blogland brings new viewers/bloggers. So many haven't seen your fabulous past posts. "Sunday Favorites" will make these posts available for viewing once again!!!

**AND**

Many of us would really like to post something on the weekends, however the weekend is such a busy time! There just isn't time to get a blog post together! "Sunday Favorites" offers an opportunity to get a post out during the weekend without having to spend the time to put one together! Am I talkin the truth now? Hehe!!!

It's so very simple...so easy and with so little time involved! If you're like me, the most time involved will be trying to decide which post to republish! Hehe!!!

For more information on "how to" republish a post...just click HERE

*If you have any questions or I can be of help in anyway...please let me know!

*******

So, without further ado...let's do it!!! Let's join in with "Sunday Favorites" and have some fun!!!

Thank you so much for your participation!!! I am going to really enjoy going through your "Sunday Favorites" posts!!!


Love ya'll,
Chari

Joyeux Noel mon Ami...

My little French girl bust! Many of my friends remember when I found my little French girl. I found her at an Antique Flea Market this past summer. I was on a mission to find one...and there she was...in all of her beauty! Hehe! I have to say a special thank you to my friend Vanna for giving me the bug....the moment I seen Vanna's pretty "Frenchy" busts....I just knew that I just had to have one (or two)!!!

My friend Vanna just recently started her own blog and it's fabulous!!! It's called "Delusions of Grandeur" ...you just have to go and see Vanna's beauties!!!


llllllll


During the Christmas renovations...my French girl was moved to the living room. She found herself right at home on this table sitting in front of the window. Do you see her smiling? I think she's quite happy here in her new spot! I added some greenery, ribbons, ornaments, and a candle for a table piece. Did you see the little gold letters that spell out the word "LOVE"....they have the most precious little cherubs perched on them! Below the table on top of the hat boxes...I placed a silver cake plate filled with gold candles and ornaments...oh yes, and a few pearls! Psssst....I really liked how this photo turned out....it was snowing at the time and the lighting was really pretty!!!






Well my friends....there you have it! Just a little more of my Christmas decor. I really haven't done as much decorating this year....it's going to be a quiet Christmas at our house! I didn't even put up a tree, but I did put out just a few things. I sure have enjoyed all of my fellow blogger's Christmasy homes though....they are all so beautiful!!!

Love ya'll,
Chari

Chari, I do not remember seeing this before. Everything is so pretty. Oh, it's hard for me to think of Christmas. We haven't had much warm weather yet. It's suppose to freeze tonight. Which is not a good thing for my plants. I am thinking laying in the sun!
Hugs, Terrie

Oh what fun to see a glimpse of Christmas in May! The "frenchy" bust is beautiful, she looks so graceful!

And thanks again for the Sunday Favorites. If it weren't for your meme, I wouldn't have a post for today -- it's such a busy weekend for us! So many thanks...and thanks also for sharing your sweet "Frenchy" girl. :-)

Christmas is my favorite time of year. You did a beautiful decorating job and knew just when to quit.
I tend to keep going until it looks like Christmas threw up all over my house.
Thanks for hosting. Maybe now I will get into the garden. Maybe.

Debbie at Mountain Breaths said...

This is my first time participating in Sunday Favorites, and wanted to let you know what a great idea you have! It's nice to know we can keep our blog active on the weekend by sharing one of our favorites from the past. I almost posted something from Christmas, so I guess we were thinking alike. I'll save it for another Sunday Favorite.

I love your post about the little frenchy girl. Thanks for sharing a little bit of Christmas in June!

Mama said...

Hello Chari, Sunday favourites is such a wonderful idea. I love your french girl bust, she is beautiful (I collect Italian busts) and I also love looking at Vanna's beautiful collections. Your photos with the snow and the soft lighting in this post is really pretty, happy Sunday my friend, Kathy.

I remember so well when you got this pretty little French girl! I just fell in love with her the first time I saw her! She is still one of the prettiest I've seen (and believe me, I've been looking. None of them measure up to yours though). laurie

Hi Chari, How was your weekend outing, a car show right? I am sure you had a great time. John and I just got home from FL and that was one hectic trip! But I am glad the wedding is over and was beautiful. Now, I can relax again. Thanks for all your kind words about my blog entried!...Christine

~Allie~ said...

Chrissy said...

Oh no wonder you love this post!!That is a great idea, you little dickens you!! Hope you are keeping well my friend, talk to you soon! x0x0x0

lvroftiques said...

Chari it sure is funny how life is! You were inspired by my collection of busts, and I'm in love with your little french girl bust....And I've searched durn near everywhere for one like her!! It totally figures! Lol! If you happen to see another one, call me OK? *winks* Love ya Vanna

Cindy said...

Chari,It's so good to hear from you! Your so sweet, thanks for the lovely compliment. I totally understand about the fibromyalgia. A good friend of mine and my daughter in law both have it. There are somedays now when I think I might have it too. I know how achey they are and how tired too. You rest up now and get caught up from your trip. Sounds like fun. I sure didn't think I would end up at a car show. We were going to go to Madison, but it was graduation week-end and there weren't any rooms! It was 87 degrees here today and 90 tomorrow. Then, back to the 70's. Boy, can I blab. Hugs to you, Cindy

Lou Cinda said...

Chari: This is so pretty! I love it and missed it the first time around, so I am so glad you reposted it! I love the bust!!

Haven't heard from Vanna in awhile, hope all is well with her!

Have a great week!

Lou Cinda :)

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Chari! How have you been friend? I came over to say hi and say Vanna's post to you. I got so excited that she is back that I ran over to her to let her know how very much we have missed you- totally forgot to leave my little comment to you! Well I am back- how was your weekend?

You know I love this post and I still am keeping my eyes open for a little frency girl like yours- just remember- copying is the best form of flattery!!

Getting ready for 2 VBS and 6 people staying here next week so I probably won't be on the computer much.

Blessings

Cindy said...
