Holiday Table with Isabella & Reminder of our Twelve Days of Holidays Giveaway Event!

My beautiful granddaughter Isabella has been staying with me this past week and helping me with so much!


She has decided to be an Interior Designer and loves to come over and change the decor around in my condominium!




We decided to take the Thanksgiving decor down and do a Christmas Holiday Table. So much of my holiday decorations are packed away right now. Look how she made what we had available ( mainly) in the Living Room Armoir work for the tablescape. She also plans to put out more crystal stemware, etc.



How fortunate can I be to have a family and friends that care about me so much!

Come back later this week for the start of our Twelve Days of Holiday Giveaway Event!


Thank you to Sherry of No Minimalist Here for the certificate to Novica.  Novica is a wonderful Free Trade Organization. I have ordered a wonderful woven Alpaca Scarf for my Father.

Also I could not believe it when Tamara of Get It Girl Style informed my that I am the recipient of a $50 gift card to Home Goods! Thank you Tamara! Be sure to visit her wonderful blog!

You can see how I have much to pay forward so you will all be thrilled with this Holiday Seasons Bounty!

I can feel a career as a designer coming on for your gorgeous Isabella. (Such a pretty name, too, with lots of character attached.) Absolutely nothing as comforting as family when you are recovering ~ it's wonderful that they are looking after you. Virginia xo

Hi Karena, Your granddaughter is adorable! Congrats on both your wins and I know your father will love the alpaca scarf. I bought one for myself at Novica and it is my favorite scarf.
Hugs,

Please tell Isabella that I love that she helped you out and also was brave enough to take your challenge. I bet you both had fun! Next time, Isabella might take some closer shots? She'll need a camera to do that. Hmmm....
