What Is On The Menu?

Everyone has special traditions that they will bring to the Thanksgiving Table tomorrow. It will be a day of Family,Friends and Gratefulness...but I hope that your day also finds these things on the menu too.

Reflecting back to last year's Thanksgiving Day...

It is Turkey Time!!!!
My Dad carving the turkey. He enjoys doing this every year. Look at how determined he is...Tee Hee!
I am looking forward to being with my family for the Holiday and I wish Many Blessings to you and yours.
Have a Magical Day!!!
Much Love,

The Coffee Bar and A Nail Polish Collection

I have a couple of things that I want to share with you today....first is what I call my Coffee Bar. Yes I LOVE Coffee!!!! I really drink too much of it so I have finally broken down and mix the regular with decaf. If I can find it all ready mixed, I will buy that because it saves me time....I have been consumed lately with trying to find ways to save time. So with that...I have what I call a "Coffee Bar" in my kitchen. It is a cake plate that I keep all my coffee spices and things for tea on. The spice containers are actually salt and pepper shakers that I have filled and created a handmade label to identify the contents. The spices I keep on the bar are as follows:
Pumpkin Pie Spice, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cinnamon Sticks and Ginger. Tucked in the back is my honey bear and a gifted tea cup that holds a honey dripper and a lovely sugar spoon from my Mother - In- Law. I also keep a few special and tiny handmade pottery pieces that hold spoons and tea bags.
Do you have a place to keep such items? It is super easy to put together and does help to save time as everything you need is so handy.

Next I have completed another video that I have been promising. This is of my Nail Polish Collection and a sneek peek of some of my jewelry and makeup collection.
I hope you like it.

Have a beautiful week.
Much Love,

Whimsy Wednesday and more Gems

Hello is Wednesday already! I have done another nail look this week using once again, "Gems" Nail Polish by Milani. The undercoat is by Sinful Colors and it is called "Rich In Heart".
Can you tell that I am in LOVE with "Gems"!!!
I searched literally for weeks to find it and I am so glad that I did. My girls love it too. I think I may have to purchase a few more for the girls and another for me. I can not imagine not having it now in my Nail Polish Collection. Speaking of my collection, I will be soon doing a new video of which will be of my Nail Polish Collection so stay tuned. I will post it here on my blog and also on my YouTube Channel.

Here is my Nail look of the week.

First apply a Base Coat.
Next apply one heavy or two thin coats of "Rich In Heart".
Apply an even coat of "Gems".
Finish with Poshe' Top Coat

There you have it....another glittered and beautiful nail look.

If you decide to try any one of the nail looks I post, I would love to hear from you.

Enjoy the rest of your week and until next time.....
Much Love,

I have been very busy lately brainstorming ideas for the shoppe, my video themes and creating. Here are a few of the lovelies I have made over the weekend.

These sweet yarn ornaments will be on our tree this year.

I mentioned in one of my videos that we have a new baby kitty this year so all of the ornaments need to be unbreakable. In fact look how cute she is!!

Funny, yarn balls may get her excited but they are glued together so they wont come apart. They were so simple to make and I think they came out so cute. The feather earrings are gifts that I made for my girls but I am taking orders if anyone is interested just message me.
I also want to share that I have a book that is kind of a scrapbook/idea book if you will.. I use it to write ideas, place pictures of the things I love, recipes,fashion, beauty etc. I have been referring to it lately to gather my ideas for the holidays. It incorporates my planning of holiday menu's, and gifts ideas. I just love this table setting idea for Thanksgiving.

The pumkin votive is the sweetest idea...don't you think? Speaking of scrapbooks...I wrote this quote...
Your mind holds the scrapbook of your life, fill it with beautiful ideas and memories.
~~Dena K. Miller
I believe it is important to always fill your mind with loveliness and do your best to push out all of the negative. Life is all what you make it and you can make it beautiful if you choose to. Soon we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. Take this time to reflect on what you are thankful for and think about things that you want to change in your life. As the year comes to a close, we now have the time to make a mental list of the things we want to be different. Think positive and realize the it is the simple things in life that can create a beautiful life. I love the book Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach..

It discusses what I am speaking about..Check it out and if you do please let me know what you think. I have read many of her books and treasure each of them. You can check out her website here:
Well for now I must be off....more preparations to take care of. Until next time, many blessings and....
Much Love,
