Copy Cat - Decorating for Christmas

Ho! Ho! Ho!
I'm late for a very important date.
Last week Thrifty Decor Chick had a party on Monday.
I've been so busy with life, I forgot to post my entry.
Here it is!
I love Southern Lady...
Before
After
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!

  2. Hello Betty,
    I am sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I know how difficult losing loved ones is, especially around the holiday season. I pray that you will find peace this Christmas season.
    I enjoyed seeing your lovely work in your home after finding you through the Tablescaper. Your setting is so welcoming! If you're interested I've started a new link party every Monday staying up all week for all table related projects and I would be honored if you wished to share your table there. Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us!
