It has been a while since I have posted anything. The reason is that my mom fell and broke her hip. It has proven to be a trial for me. It happened while I was gone on my annual trip to meet my good friend for the first Friday of December. We have been meeting on the first Friday of December for over 30 years. So while reveling in the joy of our once-a-year getaway, I found out Mom, who just turned 90, had fallen and was alone for a couple of hours until help arrived. Needless to say, it has been a whirlwind ever since. Mom is safely in a rehabilitation facility at present. And, she seems to be in good spirits. I try to take her some little something every day. Even if it is only the daily newspaper. I had decided not to set out any decoration this year, since everything was getting away from me. So it was such a joy when, a few days ago, I received the perfect pick-me-up from a lovely on-line friend in Australia. This little star ornament brightens a little spot in my family room. Thank you so much Naomi for adding a bit of joy at this time.

Marilyn....that is a beautiful star from Naomi....and I love that little bell at the bottom. I bet this would be cute stuffed and used as another pincushion idea too. I also have not decorated this year..Mainly because of the new kitty. And like you, the season is here and I was not ready..Am mailing out 2 things today in the form of gift cards and hope they both get there in time or if not, they are usable afterwards..lol
hugs, Char
