Thanksgiving is here once again and as I reflect on the past year, I know there is so very much to be thankful for. Blessings, to many to count and way to many to list. But once again we are blessed to share a special day with family and friends enjoying a delicious dinner and great company. I hope that whatever your plans, you enjoy the perfect day and God's blessings for good health, happiness and much love.

The studio is busy for Christmas and I have a few new designs to share. These and many more designs are offered in my ebay shoppe, La Rea Rose and Celestina Marie Designs.

This pink Cottage Christmas house is paper mache and opens at the roof. I have included flameless tea lites inside to give the home a holiday glow. It is so yummy.

These ornaments are made from makeup light bulbs. I have designed these for 15 years. They are so much fun!

It is so nice to be on the computer a little more this week as I have been working with the challenge of a serious eye problem. I have missed everyone but I am doing better and still seeing a specialist. I had the scare of a detached retina. While not out of the woods yet, my computer time has been very limited, so that meant, less visits to my blogging friends and posting on mine. I will be back to visiting everyone again soon and little by little doing better with the light of the screen. Thankfully my vision is not affected and I have been able to paint for a few hours each day. Of course this would happen during my very busy time of year. LOL!!

Thank you for stopping by and I will try each day to visit you in return. Best wishes for a very Happy Thanksgiving and Blessings be yours always!
