Christmas Details & Good News

We had a wonderfully simple and beautiful Christmas. Our days were filled with good food and loving family.

My favorite vintage tablecloth. The stitching is so beautiful and perfect. I cannot even imagine the time and love spent by the woman who made this. It looks Scandinavian in style, which I love.

My most loved Christmas gift. My husband and children gave this to me. I have been wanting a nativity for so long. I love it's simplicity. It reminds me of the Ostheimer wooden toys. My children can love on this without the worry of breaking it. Love that.

My husband lovingly made this for our children. I don't know exactly what to call it.....A child's imagination is so vast. So far it has been a castle, a treehouse, a space port........Endless possibilities. I would love to make pieces of little wooden furniture like these.

Our sweet little tree on Christmas morning. Bedazzled with all the new christmas creations made by my chidren.

I have wonderful news.

My dear husband accepted a job yesterday. Praise the Lord. He will start on January 2nd. I praise our God for providing and sustaining us during the last month and always.

Thank you all for prayers said on our behalf. We are so *eternally* grateful.

Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy New Year. In God's Love, Tami


  1. Yippeeee! I am supposed to be on a blogging break (shhh...don't tell anyone:o) but couldn't pass up congratulating you on your wonderful news.
    I love the little "whatcha-ma-call-it" your husband made....i want one.
    I gave my husband an old box stereo for Christmas.... the kind that is a piece of furniture.I think it is considered vintage? It made me think of you. I will post a pic when I get home from visiting family.

    Praising God with you over the new job!

  2. Praise the Lord! God is our *faith builder* isn't He? ((Tami)) I am so very happy for you guys! The children's new toys are *so* cute! I love simplicity, Tami. Thank you for encouraging me in that..

  3. The vintage table cloth is beautiful. And the watcha-ma-call-it is so clever. There is no better toy than one that calls to the imagination.

    I am so happy to hear that your husband has accepted a job. What a great way to start the new year, eh? God gave your family such a special gift of time together for Christmas this year. I'm sure it will be cherished and never forgotten. :)

  4. Tami,

    HOORAY!!! Celebrating with you! And thanking God for answered prayer!

  5. Great news! Thanks for letting us share in this with you. We need each other's stories of God at work.
