Dishing It & Digging It Link Party #179

** Important notice, our next Dishing It & Digging It Link Party will be going live on Friday December 22 at 8:00 AM, instead of the usual Sunday.

We felt we should post it early, due to Christmas.

 Christmas will soon be here. I hope you all are healthy, happy and jolly. Everyone is so busy.  Please take the time to enjoy.

On a sad note, my dad passed away December 15th, early evening the same day I entertained our Clogger's group.  I immediately went over to be with my Mom.
My dad passed away in his sleep in his own house.  A blessing and something he wanted.

Make sure to love your family and friends.

This week, I shared my table of Nutcrackers
Next week, I shall be sharing the party from The Clogger's Luncheon.

Parade Of Nutcrackers

On to the party!

Hello everyone! How is your week going? Mine you ask? 

I ran out of tape. Yep, my brain is frazzled and I am sick of running to stores, even for tape. Have you heard that saying "let them eat cake"? I'm wandering around my house mumbling: I just need some tape. Scotch tape, just 20 more pieces. Please don't make me run back out to the store. But on an up side, I did share some holiday decor through out the house.

Before I share the features, let me say thanks for joining us each week and please remember to use the share buttons provided to spread the word. More views for us, means more views for you. Sharing is caring! #DIDI

  15. What a beautiful post, Linda...the tables, etc. are just lovely. That being said, I am so sorry your dad passed away. Sorry and yet I know it is a relief, too, as he had been so sick for so long. That is a good way to go---asleep and transported from Earth to Heaven in the blink of an eye. I am just sorry it happened during the Christmas season. God bless you- xo Diana
