OUR THANKSGIVING BLESSING


Hello, dear friends!
Today, just a small tiny post to share with you our wonderful news. 

You see, our beautiful daughter-in-law had an ultrasound done four weeks ago to find out the baby's gender.
But, while this was happening, our son was back out at sea for a month long deployment.

She wanted to make sure they found out together, so since this was not possible at that time, she asked the doctor not to tell her and just put the results inside a sealed envelope so they could open it together when he got home.

Oooh, it has been a long month! LOL
We waited and waited and the envelope finally was opened this past weekend.

Welcome to Tuesdays at Our Home! 


I am so happy you are here! :)
Can you all believe it is already Thanksgiving week?
My SIL will be hosting it this year an although I am helping her with a few dishes, my preparations this year 
for the celebration are minimal. 
With our busy schedules, I am very much looking forward to this family time.

with the weekly link party.
Last week was my biggest one yet! :)

MY FIRST CHRISTMAS CRAFT THIS YEAR


Happy Friday!

Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving?
I feel like this year time is just going by so fast and can not seem to be able to catch up. :)

Last year around this time I already had all my Christmas decor ready to go, this year I got NOTHING. LOL
Well, somehow, it will all get done.

Once again, I am a little concerned about decorating our mantle. I want to use some of the items from last year, but add a few new things also, so that is where I will be using this project.

A POWDER ROOM SIGN


Hello, everyone!
For the last couple of weeks I have been knee deep in home projects trying to get our home refreshed 
and ready for the upcoming holiday season.
New drapes have been made, Christmas decor is being planned and I am now in the process of painting some walls.
Yes, I am a little tired, but happy things are finally getting done.

Today I am sharing a small project I did a last week, a new sign for the powder room.

TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME #87 & FEATURES


Hello, everyone!
Welcome to Tuesdays at Our Home!



I hope you all had an excellent weekend.
Ours was nice and quite. And a little cold. 
Our temperatures have been in the 30's in the last few days, so it sure feels like the holidays are coming soon. 

The cold weather kept us at home.
I spent the weekend working on some items for 
my Etsy shop. I made vinyl jar labels, pillows, runners, placemats, well, just a bit of everything.


It is so hard to believe next week we will all celebrating Thanksgiving with our friends and family.
Where did the year go?

 Last week we had another wonderful party.
I think Christmas is starting to be on everyone's mind.
Lets take a look at some pretty features.

Ramon at RowHouse events  shared with us the gorgeous Christmas decorations 
they put together in the store where he works.
What an amazing Holiday display!



 Poppy at With a Dash of Color created a gorgeous Thanksgiving breakfast vignette.


 Colleen at Lemon Thistle shared with us her amazing kitchen renovation.
Just gorgeous!!!


 If you need some Thanksgiving table setting inspiration, then you have to go visit Ashley at 3 Little Greenwoods.
What a beautiful table!


 Patti at Old Things New  gave us a tour of her favorite room in her home. 
Gorgeous screened porch!


Susanne at New South Charm  shared with us a wonderful and very yummy recipe for Ambrosia salad.



 Jennie at The Diary of a Real Housewife shared a wonderful post with many, many recipes you can make 
on your crock pot during this holiday season.

AN OVERSEAS FEATURE

Just a quick post to share with you a special feature of my craft room.


Laura at LE Designs, based in Edinburgh, United Kingdom has been kind enough to put together a beautiful post about my craft room and how it got to be what it is today.

Thank you again, Laura for this wonderful feature!

A NEW SPACE FOR THE COFFEE STATION


Good morning, friends!
It looks like winter has finally arrived around here.We woke up today to a very surprising 38 degrees. 
Kind of funny since just Sunday we were in the high 80's.
But that's Texas for you!
I have been moving things around in my kitchen again,( I know you are not surprised) trying to clear the counter space a little and make room for the upcoming holidays meals and entertainment.

My butler's pantry sits unused half of the time, so I decided to put that space to good use.
Let me show you what I did, it is nothing fancy, but I think it will work better for our family and guests.

TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME #86 & FEATURES


Hello, everyone!
Welcome to Tuesdays at our home!

How was your weekend? Ours was wonderful!
Specially Saturday since we had a special girls night out.
We purchased these during the Summer time and we have been waiting very patiently. :)


And the day finally arrived!



 The Magestic Theater downtown on the River Walk looked amazing!


But of course, it just couldn't be an easy day. :)
We got caught downtown in bumper to bumper traffic.
It was so bad we couldn't even get to the parking garage.
Had to park six blocks down from the theater and literally run to make it on time. 
But it was all so worth it!
The play was gorgeous and after the run, the play and a little dancing :) we were exhausted. 
Here is a picture of a very tired "little me" at the end of the evening. LOL


We did nothing on Sunday but rest. :)
It sure was a fun evening.

Today, I am very late starting the party.
My husband has four days off and we have been in the streets all day doing a little shopping, soooo, before we start, lets take a look a the features from last week.

Lovely Livings shared her beautiful porch.
Amazing Fall display!


Creative Country Mom gave us a tour of her gorgeous front porch. 
Beautiful farmhouse!



My Love To Create shared a great tutorial on how to make your own Coca-Cola box.
Love this project!



Little Brags gave us a tour of her beautiful home decorated perfectly for Thanksgiving.



My Breezy Room shared her beautiful buffet remodel.
Love the new color!



 Decorated Chaos  shared a great tutorial on how to modify any lamp to fit your lampshade.
Great Information!
