HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!



Hello my Pinkie Friends! Only two more Saturdays left in 2010, can you believe it? Where did our year go? So many things have happened this year, some so beautiful and others, I would like to forget. I guess we can all say the same thing about this year. Beverly has been faithful to host Pink Saturday and has given us the freedom to post our Christmas decorations.




Here are a few pictures you have not seen yet. These pictures are of more vignettes in my living room and dining room. Have I ever told you I love to collect Christmas Carolers by Byers? I have them in various parts of my home.





Another one of my collections are Nutcrackers. Noah thinks they eat fingers. He loves to chase me with a them, so they can eat my fingers. The Elmo Nutcracker is his favorite. I combine them with the village things, I don't know what they are called, but I think they look so cute together. Then of course, there is my collection of Christmas angels. Christmas would not be the same without angels.




I must confess, I am feeling a little overwhelmed, with all I have to do. It does not help that I am not finished with my shopping. Blogging helps me to relax and clear my head. It is like having a cup of tea with my best friend. On Sunday, I have another party to attend. I love a Christmas Party! The one I had this week was so much fun. The gathering of friends and family is always so comforting to me. I have friends that I have had for 30 years. My new blog friends are so special to me. We have never met and still your friendship is as strong as any I have. Sometimes I feel they are so one sided and that I do not deserve to have such a strong bond with many of you. Thank you for caring for me.



I pray that you are getting the things done you must do before the big day! So much to do before Jesus' birthday! Thank you for letting me share my heart this Pink Saturday! Blessings, Martha

Aloha Martha,
Thanks for making me laugh today as I read your post. Picturing Noah chasing you with a nutcracker, so precious. Love your vignettes, so pretty.
I must agree with you about our friendships via our blogging; we do care for each other. I know that I've found a friend in you dear Martha and I thank God for that and all that the Great One has bestowed on me.
Have a blessed Merry Christmas!

Martha! Your Christmas things are so charming and your music so much fun. My little Bebe is in the office here with me and as we were looking at your pictures she caught one very special character RIGHT AWAY! Elmo! Elmo! :0)

Thank you for letting me know the items arrived safely and that you liked them. That makes me so happy to hear a happy recipient!

We all feel a bit overwhelmed at this time of year. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed too, that's why I'm taking some time out this evening to have a cup of tea and to visit lovely blogs like yours. I have been enjoying your lovely decorations and feel better already!

Hello Martha! I hope you are getting things checked off of your list and you are heading in the right direction. Some days, I feel like I'm just spinning in circles!
Lovin the elf! Too perky! I also have a nutcracker collection, so come on over and play awhile. Mine do not bite, so bring Noah, too!
Merry Christmas to you and your family-
