a little bit of this n' that & pink & green thursday {memories}

happy thursday y'all.....
i hope you all are finished shopping, wrapping & cooking!
may you all enjoy what's left of this beautiful season.
i hope to come visit a few blogs today.....
although this is what i am looking at....
my elves have disappeared..
plus i am waiting on mr brown with a few more packages, ugh

{this is my upstairs, where i craft/scrapbook when time permits. it's been neglected since we moved in over the summer...so, our home tour tuesday- january 4th theme is: out with the old, in with the new---show us your one room remodel, reno, or makeover. this shall be my "makeover"}


when you travel with gifts, how do you transport?
i totally freak out when my premade/bought bows get smashed....
and God forbid my tissue gets crushed:)
i bought this large tote a few tears back & had it monogrammed
and this is my new BFF....
last night i used it to transport gifts an hour away...
they all arrived in almost perfect condition!

and if you didn't know already, the holiday is my F A V O R I T E movie of all time...
love love love it.
well, i ordered the soundtrack and it arrived yesterday....

it's all instrumental.....
hans zimmer.....

for the rest of today, mini-me and I shall wrap & bake 
and then.....
we are going to attempt to get the christmas card picture that never happened  THE picture!

i like to do my pink & green thursday on things that make me smile..
fun things....
pretty things...
these images take me back to when i was a little girl & make me smile....

  1. Fun images!! Good luck on your remodel! Wish I had a space like that...I do all of my crafting at our breakfast table! :)

  2. Isn't it funny cause I never make time to sit & do it.
    I think if it's a more fun & functional space, I'll want to be up there more:) I have sat at it a handful of times. That's something else that'll change in 2011!

  3. Good luck with the remodel! Those pictures are absolutely stunning.


  4. To take a picture and post it such a commitment! lol I can't think of any space I am brave enough to try that with ...yet - but there are many in this house :)

  5. I want a crafting/wrapping room.... area..... I'll even just take a table! Merry Christmas, Daphne!

  6. @FMF, thank you:)

    @Kerri, after I posted it, I thought the SAME thing, LOL!!

    @Sue, come see me and we can share my space:) MC friend!!

  7. Ok... you still have to help me with mine!! Maybe you will inspire me!! Moved it all out of the office and into the bedroom... come check it out!!

  8. Beautiful pictures! I love your Christmas tote bag, it's adorable. I'm sure it's much better for the packages than the shopping bags I use!

    Enjoy your day :)

  9. I can't wait to see your remodeled space! My dining room, turned sewing room will be my remodel too! It's a disaster area right now, but at least this gives me a little reason to whip it in shape!

    Good luck getting THE picture!

    Merry Christmas, Daphne!

  20. I just loaded up my presents in big shopping bags, and of course all my bows got smushed. I love your craft room! It's so cozy that I would never leave! You know I love "The Holiday!" Merry Christmas my friend!!

  21. Love carousels!! =) Very pretty...

    As for the remodel pic, that would be what my kitchen table looks like! A MESS! =) Mine might just have to consist of the bazillion toys I throw out to be able to fit the new ones in! lol!

  22. Where did you get that damask bag? I love it.
