Guess what I'm doing again?

I'm playing with my cabinet, adding some gold & glitter.

My chippy, antique cabinet
There's more trees to come. The Christmas tree is  my favorite decoration for the holidays. I have special ones my mother left me that I will dig out and show you. They are treasures to me. Next weekend we will cross the road, cut down a 9 ft. pine and drag it home. We live directly across from a tree-farm :)
and home-made raspberry jam from one of my kitty-sittin' clients
This weekend it's all about picking recipes for Christmas and celebrating my daughter, Allison's 24th birthday. 
This is Allie with a bag full of donated cat-food for our local animal shelter. She's another animal lover and in her spare time pet-sits for a local dog breeder.
"How can it be possible that my baby is 24?" 

Have a fun weekend Christmas decorating.
Hugs, Deb


  1. Those gold and glitter are so beautiful! You cabinet looks great and stunning!
    I love homemade raspberry jam, yum yum!

    Have a great weekend with your lil baby, Allie! We never care how old our babies are, they are always our babies, aren't they? : )

    Happy Birthday, Allie!!!

  2. I love the little gold whirly trees. It's so fun to decorate and bring out memories! Your daughter is beautiful and I agree how did our children get so grown up!!

  3. Happy Birthday to Allie!
    We have one miniature tree out. No lights yet. I keep moving it around wondering where it'll look best.

    perhaps I make decorating for Christmas too complicated?

  4. You have too much fun with your dishes and stuff...It's great to see it!
    My kids are 23 & 21 and I have a hard time coming to grips with that, they're still little to me.

  5. Hi Deb! I love the new Christmas-y look! Your daughter is so pretty! I hope you are having a great weekend!...hugs...Debbie
