What Sings My Soul

Hello Everyone.  We are getting close now to the big day.  Hope you all have enjoyed this time getting ready.

I collect angels and I was gifted a couple of angels this past week.  
I could hardly contain myself when I opened up the package.  
They are now in my Christmas decor.  I thought I would share them with you.

This sweet angel with her red bell just makes my heart beat a little faster.  She is the sweetest angel and all her special touches.

I love her grey and white dress along with her silver halo and trim.  It is hard to find pretty angels with blonde hair.  This one is just so sweet with her blonde locks.

She looks pretty at night when the lights on the tree are on.  I decided she is the Snowflake Angel in my tree.

Love her pretty sparkle with her silver trim.

I am naming her Joy.  That is what she brings me every time I look at her.

I have been having fun moving her around my living room to different places.

This sweet gifted angel ornament was in the tree at first.
 She also looked sweet with my snowflake theme to the tree.

She is totally sweet with her lace trim and blonde locks.

This is where she ended up.  I was also gifted this beautiful chippy sign.  She looks perfect adorned here on the sign.
My angel friend that made these gifts for me made my day.  I am so blessed she gifted me with these beautiful angels and sign.
My tree was too big to put in front of the mirror like I wanted but it does reflect the tree which is just as good.

I think it looks pretty reflecting in the mirror.

I also was gifted this sweet cherub pot and floral vignette from a dear friend at my girlfriend party.  Very soft and pretty in my decor.

Well sweet blogging angels.  I will be signing off until the first of the new year.  

I need some down time to enjoy the last few days before Christmas and to have some time with my family.

Just a short blogging break.  
I will be back in January to show you how a wall can come down and open up my tiny rooms into a more open concept.

Let's hope this project goes smoothly.  Terry has the tools ready and has thought this out.  

 I think we will be off to a great start on this project come January.

Love you all and wish all of you a
Very Merry Christmas.

    Happy Christmas holidays and Happy New Year ~ FlowerLady

  2. Wishing you both and your family a beautiful Christmas! xo Enjoy your break

  3. I love your Joy angel. Your collection is sweet, and they store easily without breaking, like textiles. Enjoy your time away, Kris. I'll be doing the same soon, out of necessity. Merry Christmas, dear one.

  4. Oh Kris Joy is a beauty. She would bring me joy every time I saw her too.

    Your other angel looks perfect too.

    Enjoy your family time. Merry Christmas my sweet friend.

  13. Lovely gifts, Kris! And I am looking forward to seeing the wall removal! Exciting!
    Wishing you a wonderful Christmas!

  14. My dear, dear friend. YOU are the best angel of all. Your kindness, friendship and gifts have blessed me so. This has been a very busy academic year for me that I can barely see straight and my holiday décor, though I love it, is just not share-worthy!!!!!!! How gorgeous is your room and the WALL IS COMING DOWN SOON! Now this is gonna be fun to watch. Back later this evening in email...

  15. Hi Kris, those are the cutest angels that your friend made. I love homemade Christmas decorations. Your tree is gorgeous too. I know Terry is going to do a great job with the wall coming down. Good luck with that project.
    Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
    Hugs, Julie xo

  16. I love it, Kris. Your angels are just beautiful...and perfect for you! I think I like the green tree even better than the white one you had in the room (although I loved the white one, too). This shows your pretty white ornaments off better.
    Have a wonderful break-I am on break, too, and just popping in here and there as I have time. Love ya-xo xo xo

  17. Kris, what lovely gifts. Those angels are the sweetest little things. I love the sign and the wording and your tree is beautiful reflected in the mirror. Have a wonderful Christmas, my dear friend, and enjoy the time off. I will be taking some time too..Merry Christmas to you and your family..xxoJudy

  18. What beautiful gifts you received! Your tree is so pretty. I don't know if you're reading comments but if you do, I am wishing you and Terry and your family a wonderful Christmas together. xoxo

  19. Happy Christmas Kris,
    I love the angel with her little red bell ringer.
    Have a blessed time your family and friends.

  20. Your two new angels are darling Kris! They are a perfect addition to your collection!! Enjoy and have a wonderful Christmas season!!

  21. I love your new angels Kris, especially the one holding the red bell...gorgeous! Perfect additions to your collection! Your entire home is beautiful and you have decorated it beautifully for the holidays! I hope the hustle and bustle of the holidays hasn't been too bad this year! I hope you and your family have a wonderfully blessed Christmas and New Year! Looking forward to the new changes! Love and hugs sweet friend!!

  22. All your angels are beautiful! Love all the white as you know. Have a wonderful holiday with your family! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  23. Just as that angel sings your soul, so too does your house sing mine. It always makes me smile to see the beauty that surrounds you.

    Merry Christmas Kris!


  24. I'm so happy for you, Kris, that this sweet friend has given you so much pleasure with Joy. What a good name for her and I love her sweet little red bell that looks to be vintage. Her dress is so pretty! And the expression on her face. And I can almost see your face as you've enjoyed this little angel for your tree and the other gifts from friends. And please do enjoy your time away to the fullest!

    Blessing to you, dear Kris,

  25. VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS to YOU Kris.. and tool man and your family! These angels have all found a very deserving and wonderful home... the makers most surely know your soul and tastes in colors and decor. Oh.. he one on the tree with her little red bell.... it also brings me such JOY and made me smile! Have a wonderful holiday, rest, relax (what is that word?)..... enjoy your loved ones.. and I'll be looking forward to new excitement and projects from you in 2019! Joyeous Noel... Marilyn

  26. your angels are just so sweet and pretty, they fit your decor perfectly. Have a wonderful next few weeks and enjoy your Christmas! xo Debra

  27. I love you angels.

    In my Americana decor phase, I used homemade ornaments and I made quite a few angels. I don't recall what happened to them. I think I need to get at least one angel.

  28. Your new angels are lovely...have a good, restful break...and Merry Christmas.

  29. They are so darling! Everything is beautiful! Merry Christmas to you and your family and blessed New Year! xo Su

    I just checked my blog, and there you were. Thank you dear friend for always being there. I am loving my new camera, but all I need now are some FLOWERS. Christmas is over, and now it's just winter. I hope to capture what the eye can't see but what the soul can feel. ThANK YOU for being my friend.
