Happy New Year from the TFT Gang!

Happy New Year friends! The next time we meet it will be 2023, can you believe that?!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and had the opportunity to spend some quality time with your families and friends.  Thank you for all your kind comments and well wishes. I’m so grateful for you. 

Let’s look at a few of your posts from last week’s party. Judith from Botanic Bleu shared her adorable French Country Style Christmas Bathroom

Merry Christmas Friends!

 Merry Christmas Friends!

First and foremost, thank you all so much for all your kind Birthday wishes, they are so appreciated. I'm so grateful for all of you.  And, Secondly, Merry Merry Christmas Friends! Can you believe Christmas Eve is just 2 days away? I've been truly enjoying this wonderful Season. I hope you have been too. I shared a little quote on Facebook last week, that was quite popular. It went something like this...
"Blessed is the Season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of Love". WOW 
Isn't that the truth, though? 
If you had asked me what I wanted for this Birthday or Christmas, you would have gotten the same answer I gave most all my family and friends, which was, 'I really can't think of anything.' I was wrong. And, how do I know? Because my beautiful friend, Linda, you know her, she manages a little blog called Crafts a la Mode. Anyway, Linda sent me something I didn't know existed, and yet, I needed to have it the minute I saw it!  If you are not familiar with Sarah Young's Jesus Calling, please do yourself a favor and find it. Once you are through with that, by the way, you will never be through, you will read it over and over again, year after year. But, when you can put it down, it might be for this gift my friend got me! Jesus Calling for Christmas! It is no exaggeration to say it is Heavenly.  Thanks again, Linda!

It's My Party(Birthday), Literally!

Good morning friends! It has been a beautiful December, so far, and I'm genuinely looking forward to the rest of it and the New Year! I hope that you are all enjoying this wonderful time of the year, as well.  Today is my Birthday! As I get older, I try to embrace each and every year and realize, even more now than ever, that each and every year is a gift, and I am trying to focus on that Blessing. So... here's something I don't think you read often from a woman,  Today I turned 57!  Yay me! I'm doing a little happy dance of my own.

I've found that I'm in good company as Jenna from the Painted Apron shares her December Birthday celebration! Happy Birthday, Jenna, now you have another Birthday Buddy!

Happy December!

 “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year “ is here! Boy, I couldn’t be happier. Happy December! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I did.

But, I just love this time of year, and just to put some icing on our December cake, it came in with Rain! Glorious rain that started overnight and is continuing on this morning.  We so desperately need it here in California. I’m grateful for each and every drop! Time to share some TFT love.  

Look at this cute Christmas Red French Country Bathroom from Judith at Botanic Bleu. Isn’t it beautiful?
