i do believe...

this morning upon pulling our bedroom curtains open, i noted a package of green and red placed quite neatly at the base of our fence next to our driveway...


i hoppity skipped down the stairs and out into the cold
and that is when dearest readers a warm glow filled my heart, the glow of glee. for upon my driveway was a bag of red bows, upon my fence three of them already happily doing their gleeful thing.


now if you may recall, our #4 had noted upon his father installing greenery along the fence, that indeed it looked as though the tree branches had fallen from above and we had yet to clear up the debris. however not any longer, no sirree! through another's kindness, a small gleeful miracle has happened at Mossy Shed.
our fence is now 'a glow' with it's branches, lights and red bows and once again i find myself marvelling at the kindness of others...


she does believe in small miracles and she is wishing you one of your own, this gleeful season ~ Tif

Hey that is great...a lovely kind Christmas miracle that thoroughly warms the heart...and just in time for your daughter to see!!

there is something about red, isn't there-to spiff it all up? lovely.

i do know what you mean about the rose colored glasses when you see mamas with young ones and your own growing up and flying the coop. mine are not far, and even though i see them often, it seems it is never long enough.

it sounds like you have some fun times coming up with your daughter! enjoy!! my youngest loves to thrift with me and i dare say i will miss her when she decides to explore the world (which she plans to do post haste)!

and i am right there with some of the others...my shops ne'er have any goodies such as yours...i must travel far and wide to find that level of thrifty goodness!!!
