A Christmas Teaser

I have had a busy week.
Getting ready for guests.
What did my son and I get done?
He toted and carried and
I decorated.
Here is just a quick
peek until I can get 
my pictures taken and
The kitchen counter
sports this....
A Pfalzgraf soup tureen
that I have had for years.
These were taken at night
so the light comes solely
from the candle lamp.
Don't ya love it?
I do! 
I do love it!
I love it so much I want to 
marry it.
But I can't....
because somebody won't let me....
Ah-yes-there he is now...
waiting for me in bed with his
Captain's hat on.
Be still my heart~
your photo name

  2. So your decor so far. It gets contagious, once you begin you cannot stop! Happy holidays!

  3. Lol. A smile to start my day is always a good thing. Happy Friday! xo

  4. Is this the first pic we are seeing of MyHero? Very handsome! For night or gloomy days, I set my ISO at 400 and it works for me. What a cute idea using the tureen in your really looks pretty. I need one of my sons (or both) to carry up my Christmas things, too. Two flights of stairs and the bins are heavy. I guess I should pack up fall first! ;-D


  5. Dianna,

  42. Love the tureen and your pictures are beautiful. So glad you had good help.
    There is only one other person on earth from whom I have heard that phrase "I would marry it". That is my oldest daughter. She always says that about things that she really loves or likes. So cool, sweet friend.

  43. Great photos. Perfect lighting.

    Hope we can see more of your decorating. :)

    You two are cute. You make me laugh.

    Take care my friend, Janet W ((hugs))

  44. Looking beautiful! Can't wait to see you Christmas decor! I am so late this year! But I trying to enjoy all my time with my son before he leaves on Tuesday and after that, I will cry my heart out for a couple of days and then I will be ready to decorate! :)

  45. So, when you enter the bedroom and he's wearing his captain's hat, do you say "hey sailor!" LOL! I love that candle lamp too! Can't wait to see more of your Christmas decorations! Hugs, Leena
