Christmas Cheer~

Image result for vintage pink santa smiling

I hope you are enjoying your week so far. I can't complain since we have been having beautiful weather here in Florida. Lots of sunshine and clear blue skies and it's cool too!. Love it so much.

I thought I would share some Christmas cheer! I have two new items to share with you. I am working my fingers as quickly as possible since Christmas will soon be here. The stockings below are available on my Santa's 12 Days of Deals event hosted by Shabby Cottage Shops. 


I love being part of this group of talented ladies. So please take a minute or two to visit my page as well as Shabby Cottage Shops for beautiful gifts!

Here they are....

Oh and I didn't forget! As promised here are a few pics of my Christmas tree.....

Pictures do not do justice to my Christmas tree. My tree is not real,but I prefer it that way. I am allergic to real trees. My tree already has lights on it so I don't have to go through the trouble of putting lights and it has frost on it so it looks like snow. I haven't finished adding a ruffle skirt so ignore the bottom..lol 

I will be taking more pics of my tree and the outside of my house, but this time side and my tree lit up. So stay tuned for more. :-)

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the week!

A Shabby Stocking and a Shabby Handbag~


Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends,

I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far. It's a cloudy day here and we are expecting rain. My garden will be happy. :)
It's seriously hard for me to believe that next week is Thanksgiving. I have seen many people in my area with Christmas trees and  lights already up. Wow! I prefer to stick to my own tradition which is putting the lights and decorations up the day after Thanksgiving. ;)
And speaking of Christmas I added a new stocking to my shop. I love pink, but red is also pretty during Christmas. My tree is green, but my decorations are all pink and white. I love that soft shabby chic look. :) When it's up I will post some pics.
Here is the stocking...
It has a lot of detail. The top is full of handmade roses with beads. Here is the link: http://janetscreativecottage.com/item_494/Shabby-Red-Christmas-Stocking.htm

I have also added a new shabby cat handbag to my shop. It's really beautiful if I may say so myself. It has lots of lace and pretty embellishments. Here are three photos...


And here is the link: http://janetscreativecottage.com/item_493/Shabby-Cat-Handbag.htm

By the way, if you have a few minutes please visit my sisters over at Shabby Cottage Shops. They really do have lovely products you might be interested in. Happy Shopping! www.shabbycottageshops.com

I hope you enjoyed your visit!

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Veteran's Day!

Hello and Happy Friday Sweet Friends!

The weekend is here again. How I love weekends! ;) I hope all of you had a great week. I must say that the past week was a crazy one with the election and everyone all tense about who would be our next President. Totally understandable. I know many are disappointed with the outcome, but I for one am happy. It's not about gloating or putting anyone down. That is not what America should be about. I think we can all agree that we should be united. We all want a great America and want what is best for our country. No President is perfect and I would never claim that Trump is going to create miracles. I can't speak for God, but I do believe God had the last word. It was his decision on who would be the next President. Image result for george washington peace quotes

There has been so many bag things happening around the world over the past few years. I feel that we should pray for peace, pray for God to guide our new President to do a great job and help us heal. I see all these students protesting and think what good does it do? They should pour that negative energy into something positive. Trump isn't even in office yet and everyone is going crazy. Let's give him a chance before we judge. Yes he said things that he shouldn't have said. I don't care for his egotistical way, but I do believe he cares about America. I do believe he will make our country strong again. I hope this doesn't offend anyone as that is not my intention at all. I wasn't happy when Obama was elected, but I accepted it and I think it would be nice if Trump was accepted too. You don't have to like him and that is okay with me. Just give him a chance.
Today is Veteran's Day and a very important day. I respect them and hope and pray for them. They deserve the best of what life has to offer. Most of all I am grateful to all the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country.

With that all said, I also want to share that I have a few new items in stock. The holidays are here so if you are looking for a nice gift then this might be the place for you. :)
Visit http://janetscreativecottage.com/category/all.htm

By the way, I hope you don't mind my suggestion, but if you can please do something nice today.  Maybe smile at someone, compliment someone, let someone in front of you or pray for someone. I think God will not only smile, but bless you too.

Wishing each and everyone a very beautiful weekend,

Wishing You Sunshine and Roses
