193rd Inspire Me Tuesday

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving.  Ours was wonderful and of course I ate way tooooooooo much.  So now it is on to Christmas.  I know most of you have some or all of your decor up already, so let's take a peak at some of it from last week.


day2day SuperMom gives us a tutorial for this fabulous and gorgeous Thanksgiving Tree.  So perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas.



Seems like everyone is going all out with handmade Christmas Decorations.  Vintage Paint & More created 12 fabulous trees.  You really have to go see them all.

Purple Hues and Me shares a tutorial on how to create this gorgeously stunning tree.


If you want to see elegant shabby chic perfection, then you have to visit Bella's Rose Cottage


I LOVED, LOVED this idea by Dirty Hands-Beautiful Life.  She calls this her 'in-between" tree done with branches and flowers.  Still fall and not quite Chirstmas.

An update on my Great-grandson Bronx.  He is off the ventilator and back on the CPAP to help him breath..  He is stable and his lungs are healing. He was a week old Friday and his parents, my grandson and his wife got to hold him for the first time.  This was truly a great day and so many blessing.   Doctors think he should be out of NICU in a week hopefully. Thank you all so much for your prayers.  God is so GOOD.

  28. I am so happy to hear Bronx is off the ventilator. The CPAP is no big deal - just a little air flow to remind them to breath. His skin looks healthy and filled out way more than some premie babies do.It will be nice when they take all the stuff off his face so you all can get a real good look at him. I remember that being such a big deal, too. Removing the tape. Love to you and the family and kudos for tough little Bronx.

  72. Hi Marty,
    First of all, my heart jump a bit seeing your great grandson holding Daddy's hand. Just adorable. Teary eyes... Hugs to both.

    Secondly, your features are so talented. Job well done and wish them the best.

    You make me giggle when you said "ate way too much". Lady, it's Thanksgiving? Wasn't it? Just enjoy and after, have an hour walk around the vicinity and the excess loses a bit, §:-)

    Take care,
