A Soothing Holiday White Wednesday......

Because of several things in my life at this moment, the whites of the season are soothing. I have brought out only a minimal amount of decorations at home, but the ones that make me smile the most are the ones that came out of the boxes. I am definitely NOT a fan of resin, however, when I found these lovely chubby angels at a local store about five years ago, I fell in love and forgave the material they were made from. I think because I am truly a Texas girl, I loved their size....not just the chubby, but the fact they are almost two feet tall as well.......you just gotta love a chubby girl!!

The remainder of the night was a challenge as Lola and Punkin just had to join in the decorating. I have so many antique and vintage Christmas decorations, but don't dare put them out for obvious reasons. I always go with brand new inexpensive ornaments because not only do the cats knock them off the tree, but my three very large dogs can bat them across the room with their large wagging tails...... My life is a zoo.....and they keep me smiling!

And Punkin eats anything in sight....could be why she weighs 22 lbs.......

And could it be that before the night was over the tree was leaning a little to the left.....yep, it was 'cause Lola was up in the top "checkin it out"......I was just greatful it was still standing!!

  1. Beautiful tree! Can't believe the cats can climb it. Have a lovely week! ~ Angela

  2. Those angels are a hoot! And the picture of your tree leaning & your explanation made me laugh. OH MY a cat in the tree. Have a great week.

  3. Looks like you and the cats had a great time. The angels are so cute, wish I had one.

  4. I love your chunky gals! So cute!
    And yep, cats can most definitely climb a Christmas tree, hence the reason we don't have one this year.

    My mom actually had a 22 lb cat, I thought she was the only one!!! ;-)


  5. very pretty...the cutest angel ever! I know all to well the saga of the wagging tail and ornaments flying across the room! We love them just the same though don't we? Hope your holidays are wonderful!!

  6. It seems people and cats are the same all around the world. I was awakened by Jingles tossing pinecones around the tv room at 1:30 am. I also find ornaments scattered here and there that she has batted off the tree. Fantastic angels, wonderful ornaments and beautiful tree. Blessings :) Tammy

  7. Hi Jana

    I LOVE the chubby angels!!! So cute!

    Wishing you a wonderful Christmas!

  8. Like the chubby lady, and the precious, curious cats, but I lovvvveee your white ware in the background. How long have you been collecting that, Jana? By the way, happy holidays! I've been out of blog circulation for a while.

  9. Love the chubby girls too. Punkin looks like she was trying out a pearl snack. Not so yummy! We've been lucky and have never had Christmas tree climbers but I have had a lot of broken things in the shop this year. They're pretty well behaved considering I have so many:)))
    Hope you're having a good season!

  10. Very soothing indeed and I just love those big chubby angels! They have such peaceful faces. Merry Christmas!

    Cathy ♥
