I just loved how the lighting on those photos had that pretty bluish colored background! Please go by and pay Sally a visit today...you will find a list of all the other Blue Monday participants. Thank you, Sally...for hosting Blue Monday for us and giving us a chance to show off our pretty blues!!!

Well "my oh my", my dearest "mon Cheri"!..,

Just when I think;(yet inwardly of course I know better); that you couldn't possibly improve on what you've already posted in the past my dear, you create yet another series of stunning vignettes and array of mosaics to thrill the heart of the artist within all of us!..,

(Truly, truth be told however, they are never "better" per se, as they are all equally stunning)! ~ Yet you always reach that "high water mark of excellance" time and time again my dear friend!..,

I can hardly choose a favorite my dear, yet I must say that I simply adore any vignette with bell jars, glass dome covers , french wired ribbons, silver, golden ornaments,deep claret reds and cloches!.., You've outdone yourself once again!

Thank you dearest Chari for your kind, generous, warm and complimentary comments today on two of my blogs!

I'm so glad you came by to wish me a Merry Chritsmas as well; your visits always make my day!

The overmantle on the piano was the actual overmantle on one of the twin parlours, fireplaces of my fathers childhood home, and the man who bought the house from my grandma was going to throw that lovely piece of furniture away when my father rescued it!~ The piano was from my mothers childhood home..,

Glad you liked it!~ Also, the "frenchy" fireplace mantle was the only one they sold apparently. It was sold to us as a floor model from one of our local, big hardware and home decor stores, 14 years ago..,

~God bless you and yours with a very merry, safe, happy, fun and heartwarming Christmas indeed, dear Chari!..,

Thank you for inquiring about my health! Though I have my days and moments on the road to recovery, God has beeen utterly gracious and loving!..,


My hubby, my kitty, "Peaches" and I will have a wonderful time of quiet celebration..,

~ Then later on early Christmas afternoon, with Christmas brunch being served to us and three close friends at one of my favorite grand hotels. ~ Christmas dinner is to be served at another dear friends house later Christmas day and into the evening!..,~ Gods provision, more than you know!..,

I now have "tears of gratitude" in my eyes as I was so lonely for family that I didn't know what to do; God literally "opened the floodgates" and friends literally seeming to "pop up like popcorn"!~ Joy oh bliss!..,

It inspires me to pray for health moreso to go out and help others!..,

"Oh to be His hands extended"!..,

Cheers, hugs and blessings and also a happy and blessed New Year from your friend Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen

I always love looking at all of your photos because they are so stunning. Also love your mosaics. I am clueless as to how to do them, even though I tried on Picasa. Must be a mental block! LOL
Have a very Merry Christmas, Chari!
