Christmas in July

Hello Friends,
 I love to celebrate Christmas in July ! It just gives me time to plan any crafts or projects I may want to do for Christmas . If I wait until Christmas for such things ,I just will never get them done.And it's such fun too. I like to watch  Christmas movies to get in the mood.I rediscovered the old flick "Christmas in July" last year,a very funny comedy from 1940.It is not really a Christmas movie but I enjoyed it, I won't give the plot away if you haven't seen it,

  A early start on the Christmas Crafts , here is a plushie made by my very talented granddaughter Jasmine.

An Angel ornament I made 

Yay, I found this vintage mouse elf at the Good Will for 50 cents.

" The virgin shall be with child and give birth to a son,and they shall call him Immanuel--Which means God with us."

Bees, Butterflies, Blooms & More

Hello Friends,
Here in NC , I have noticed an abundance of insects this year. Along with the worrisome kinds , we also get to enjoy the delightful ones like fireflies & butterflies. I have been enjoying watching them in the garden.

Here is a stream of Bee & Butterfly pics.

Mad Tea Party 2013

Welcome to the Mad Tea Party! 

Thanks to Vanessa at a Fanciful Twist for hosting.

I must have been dreaming.I remember being on a walk and as I passed a familiar garden I heard the flowers singing . I said to myself " This is very curious ,I must get home and things will be fine."

I made it home and I was just beginning to relax ,when I spied out my back window and there was a Tea Party table all ready for tea. In the distance someone fleeing into the woods ,that strangely resembled The Mad Hatter.

  Things are getting curiouser  and curiouser.

All of a sudden I was very hungry ,the cupcake was nice to look at, but not very edible.

The tea was very strange too, I was afraid to drink.

Maybe I should try some of this instead.

What was that?Did I see the rabbit blink? I think I'm going mad !

"If Alice happens by be sure to give her the key  so she can get out of the garden.",said the rabbit.

"Oh No!", I said out loud,"I am mad!." " Don't worry." said the  rabbit," Only the best people are!"

At that I must have fainted , I found myself waking on the couch . I quickly got up and looked out the back window. Nothing unusual was there. I looked at the sky and said to myself ."Maybe I shouldn't take a walk today,it looks like rain."

I hope you enjoyed my tea party adventure,be sure to visit Vanessa's party where there is a list of all the parties.
