Imagine and Create

Good Morning Everyone.  I put up my last post for the year yesterday with my Merry Christmas Card to each of you then something fun and sweet happened after I posted.  I want to share this and thank this sweet blogger and friend.


Kim over at Exquisitely Unremarkable sent me this sweet angel she made.  This special little angel is made out of macaroni.  So looks who's hanging with my sweet birds!

Kim is so crafty and at one time in her life taught school kids.  I bet they just loved having her as a teacher with all her creative ideas that are so much fun.  This little angel just makes me smile so she had to go up into my kitchen Christmas tree with my birds.

Along with the sweet macaroni angel she gave me these two Rae Dunn mugs.  Kim said when she saw them she new they were perfect for Terry and I.  I imagine and then Terry with his trusty tools creates for me.  Gosh I love these Kim.  Thank you so much sweet friend.

I have to say as we move on down into Christmas and think about all the blessings in our lives.  I have met and become friends with so many of you sweet bloggers.  My life changed so much when I started my little chippy white decor blog over 6 years ago.  I have met and become friends with so many of you sweet friends that I probably would have never met if it were not for blogging.

To this day it still amazes me how people from all over the world can meet and become friends and click instantly and feel like life long friends without ever meeting in some cases.

I truly love all of you that I have come to know.
I wish all of you that celebrate Christmas a very Merry one and I wish all of you most of all a brand new year filled with happiness, health and most of all peace.

Love,
Kris

  3. Kris, I am overwhelmed by this post, you just made me cry. You are the sweetest (and super fun to shop for btw!) and one of the biggest blessings of blogging. I am truly grateful for our long distance friendship. One of those days hopefully we will get a chance to meet in person. Maybe I'll ask Diana to swing by and pick me up!

  7. Yay! I finally got my computer back so I could do a post, and the first place I headed after that was over here! I love your little macaroni angel. My oldest daughter made me one like this years ago, and she sits on one of my shelves with my vintage dishes. What a special person Kim is to make this for you, Kris. Have a wonderful Christmas, dearie.
    Love to you.

  10. Isn't that the cutest idea...a pasta angel! teeheheheheheheheee

    Don't you just love the crafts we can make on this celebration of living? Dear Kris, your friendship means a lot to me, and through our shared love of home and hearth (in white, of course), I've been so blessed by you. Your endurance through some hardships and your patience through changes have inspired me. Thank you for all that you are.

    1. Oh Anita right back at you. I have loved getting to know you through this crazy cyber world. Who would have ever thought you could cultivate such beautiful relationships this way. I feel so blessed you have opened your heart to me and have shared your friendship. Wishing you and Ruben a very Merry Christmas and wishing beautiful new things in the new year. Enjoy these last few days of teaching before your wonderful and well deserved break. I bet the kiddos are getting excited to be having winter break too. Merry Christmas sweet friend.

  29. Just checking in today to your blog. I am surprised to see that I have missed the last 4 posts. I must be just cruising along on automode. I truly didn't realize I had been gone for so long. As usual your posts are both visually and emotional/mindfully inspirational. Thank you for reminding me through your words that I can look forward to tomorrow. You ending comment and wish for health, happiness and peace in the new year has given me a ray of sunshine. Thank you for being a kind soul and friend to many. Wishing to you and yours a year filled with continued blessing. Love and hugs.
