TAKING A BREAK

I am sharing a picture (not from this year) to Wish You a Very Merry Christmas:



And from this year below:



  I am taking a break from blogging for several reasons.  These are busy days indeed but also - my computer is in a crisis.  I recall that I am not the only one to have this problem - right!  Oh boy!  I was able to post this from my small laptop but the "big guy" is in trouble.  

Merry Christmas!

We'll miss you! Fix your "big guy" and hurry back!

Merry Christmas Bernideen. Hope the computer thing gets worked out, they're an expensive way of keeping in touch but one sure feels cut off without a computer in working order.

Hi Bernideen,
That was so kind of you to add my name to your blog. I don't think I have shared my Shelley teacup like yours but I will try to do that in the New Year. Sorry to hear about your computer problems. I certainly have had my fair share of concerns and when I was teaching it always seemed around report card times. I wanted to say that I just love that Andy Williams song "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and was wondering if that is what you based your blog title on this last Tuesday. I also love his song that starts out with "It's the holiday season...:" I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and your tree looks so very lovely! Back to wrapping, baking and shopping...Take care,
Karen

Merry Christmas! I totally understand. Occasionally, blogging breaks are necessary for a variety of reasons!

Bernideen said...

Have you seen the Hallmark Movie - by the name "Most Wonderful Time of the Year". It is one of our favorites!!! Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas, Bernideen! Computers really do cause some of us a lot of stress. I don't think anything can rile me as much as a computer that's acting up on me. Anyway, I hope you get the kinks worked out. Enjoy your break and we'll be here when you get back. I wish you and your loved ones a blessed and joyous holiday.

Hugs,
Sandi

Hello Bernideen. I've been a few days without Internet - our modem quit working…we can only do what we can when we can - I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas - you're a blessing to me!

I LOVE your outdoor nativity scene ! This is what I want for our home. Did someone make it for you ? I have often contemplated placing such a scene by my sheep's feeding area. Or in my lovely dove-cote...seems appropriate to me for our place.

Merry Christmas to you & yours and I hope your computer problems are easily resolved very soon. ~

Merry Christmas to you! Thank goodness for the backup laptop.
Computer issues never come at the right time.

We did not have the time to get this out this year. Actually, I had this set (I had 2) at my store in Texas in the early 90's and one at my house. This one I kept because I liked the colors the best. This was a company from Ohio many years back (22 years).
Merry Christmas!

So sorry to hear you are having "equipment" problems! And you're right! We all get them. I hope you get this Merry Christmas To You though! I have been off line a lot for the past few weeks myself, and haven't been visiting much. Thanks so much for your visits to me! Merry Christmas!

Bernideen, hope you get the computer fixed soon. I say I don't really like technology but when it goes bad it is a big problem. Take the time to enjoy your family during the holidays. I love the outside decorations and the tree looks beautiful. I'll be gone for a month also so in the meantime have a very Merry Christmas..Judy

Vee said...

Oh no. Hope that you are able to get it fixed or upgrade or something. I absolutely love your outdoor nativity scene. It is wonderful.

Merry Christmas! Would you tell me who made your nutcracker teapot? I have searched Online by looks only to no avail. If I knew the maker I might have more luck. My husband loved nutcrackers and since being widowed I am loving them too.

This is not available. I sold these in my shop for several years but it has been gone for about 7 years! Sorry. You will often see "former" items on my blog - things I have had for years. Merry Christmas.

Angela McRae said...

We're mostly too busy to blog much during Christmas anyway! Merry Christmas, Bernideen!

Deanna said...

Everything looks beautiful! Merry Christmas,

Hope you had a wonderful C'mas with your family dear Bernideen. I love your tree and your home all decked up for the holidays. Hope your computer problems are over soon. I love your Nativity outside your home too.
