Once again it's time to decorate the mantel for Valentine's Day. I have 4 sweet valentine planters, 2 old valentine card boxes and 3 vintage valentine candy boxes. I do have more candy boxes, however using these this time. I really need to get going on making my valentine cards.
Guess what, I am on instagram. It is FUN and easy! So, if you want to follow me, here is my account name @debsearthlydelights . Sorry, I don't know how to have you get there from my blog!
I will be posting LESS on my blog. No pressure to follow me there.

Sometimes I find my words and actions unkind. Being kind to one another should be so easy. A smile to a stranger, opening the door for someone, sending a note to a friend, calling your Mom (one I need to do more often), calling a friend, making a meal for someone the list could go on and on.
With the shooting just hours ago at an airport in Florida with 5 dead and 8 injured, KINDNESS certainly is needed.
Did you choose a word this year!?

These are my last estate finds of 2016. Most of this was a 10.00 bag:) Love it when the estate sale has "bag" sales.
HAPPY NEW YEAR blogging friends. I hope that the New Year brings much happiness, good health, peace, joy and many Blessings from the Lord!

I received this from Linda, Itsy Bits & Pieces, yesterday. A very unexpected gift of JOY! Thank you so much!
This Santa & reflector is from Sandy. She also sent all the goodies below! Thank you so much, Sandy. Sandy's blog is 521 Lake Street. She has stopped blogging so I won't link her up.
Lot's of crafting supplies.
I am working on Christmas cards. Lot's of snow is coming tonight and very cold temps, so I hope to finish them tomorrow. Maybe I'll make cookies too!
Thankful that I have a cozy and warm home.

Saturday was the Christmas luncheon at church and this darling dress form was made by one of the talented ladies on the committee. She is so talented. She also made the faux food on the trays.
I love the colors the hostess used. Love the snow flake plates.
Red and white are a favorite color scheme that was used.
Love the square plates and the shoehorns are a favor. So unique.
I set this table and used paper plates with my Cup of Christmas teacups. I didn't have enough and used some other Christmas teacups. I used paper plates to encourage other ladies to set a table in case they don't have china.
I also set this table, again with paper plates. I added candles after I took the photo.
I think this is my favorite one!! She used a bedspread on top and the snowflake plates. This was set by a mom & daughter!
Altogether there were 18 tables that were set for this event. 153 ladies/girls signed up. I set 2 tables because we didn't have enough hostess. We also had a candy bar for all to get treats from. This year my daughter and grandgirl came along with my mom & middle sister and a couple of friends.
Now I have time to get my Christmas cards done, wrap a few presents, buy a few gifts and maybe bake some cookies, hubby's favorite.
Merry Christmas....I have heard people saying this greeting this year! Hooray!

The real Reason for the Season! The Birth of the Savior, Jesus!
The Christmas luncheon at church is this Saturday and I am setting 2 tables! I will take photos and share them later. All together there will be 18 tables decorated by different women. Almost 150 ladies coming. Lot's to do for the event as I am on the committee. We are also having a candy bar. Just like last year and that is a hit with everyone!
