Holiday Magazine My Way Challenge Blog Tour
Ho! Ho! Ho!
Back in November Katherine, from Katherines Corner, invited her readers to join her in what she hoped would become an annual event, the Holiday Magazine My Way Challenge. The instructions were to use a new or old holiday magazine cover (November/December) as our inspiration. Recreate it our way- by creating a copy using our own items. Or recreate the cover with our vision. All of the participants will be included in a random drawing and 2 winners will each receive a one year subscription to Veranda Magazine, Elle Decor or House Beautiful magazine (winner’s choice).
Here it is!
I met my challenge using SOUTHERN LADY magazine
It's time to take the Holiday Magazine My Way Challenge Blog Tour.
This post was published on December 16th 2012 and my mother had just passed away.
This is my story.
Since my mother passed on November 3, 2012, this holiday season has taken on a life of it's own.
I've wanted to get in the spirit of things, but I feel like I'm out of focus. You know what I'm talking about. When your taking a photo and you just can't get the camera to focus~In and out the lens goes, trying to pin point the object. That's me. My sister and I cleared my mom's house the first weekend of December and I brought some little treasures home. The beautiful bowl with the gold trim decorated with multicolored ornaments is one of the little treasures. From time to time I will be showing little keepsakes I gathered from my mother's home.
This too shall pass
This is my version of decorating the tree with the ornaments ready to place on the tree,
and having sweets with tea.
I served homemade Lemon Squares Supreme, shortbread dipped in chocolate and truffles.
'Lemon Squares Supreme' Go Here.
The cinnamon sticks ready to put in the burning flames for a fragrant smell of the holidays.
My musical and angel theme living room decorations.
The lemon squares, truffles and little German chocolate dipped cookies were the dessert I served at
my Christmas Tea. I will be posting the tea party later this week.
Thank you so much for visiting My Cozy Corner.
I love how my wonderful followers, friends, and newcomers keep checking in to see what the 'Old Fogies' are up to lately. LOL!

It has been three Christmas's since my mom passed away. My sister and I were so blessed to have
a great mother. When I use my mother's keepsakes in a post I am reminded of my wonderful childhood. We were not rich or poor. We went to church and school. I worked after high school and I married my high school sweetheart. We were blessed with three healthy children that are successful today. Now we are in the last phase of a simple life with friends and family we love dearly.
Thank you for being part of my journey. I love to blog and in retirement it is a great hobby.
Thank you Katherine for having me be part of your party every week.
Now Let's get this party started.
