It Was A Wonderful Weekend

It's A Wonderful Life is in my opinion one of the best movies ever! There is so much in this movie that warms your heart. My son Dylan, his wife Mary and grandsons, Griffin and Elliot treated me and my husband for my birthday.
I also think Donna Reed is one of the most beautiful actresses of all time.

We saw it in an old time movie theater which added to the fun. As you can see we were in the nose bleed section. It added to that nostalgic feeling, Mary and I of course shed a few tears at the end of the movie. We walked across the street to a cute little place called the Bistro for dinner. For all the locals if you haven't been to Phoenixville in a while, you need to check it out. It is a vibrant town filled with all sorts of interesting stores and restaurants.

Barb from Fun With Barb sent me some wonderful gifts for my birthday! How fun is this beach bag with the vintage bowling fabric. I will be using this later this spring when we head to Florida.

Isn't this a creative way to display buttons? I will be keeping this just the way it is on a shelf in my sewing room. These cute pink socks are also a winner!

Barb also gave me the house mug rug that I am displaying here with a cup that is so me, given to me by my friend Stephanie. How lucky am I? There is also an aqua cup to match the red one, one of my most favorite color combinations.

Stephanie also gave me these adorable scissors that are perfect for getaways in the little cover. I really am pretty lucky to have such nice friends.

These cute little slippers are from my friend, Cynthia. She is a quilter and a knitter! I am always in awe of knitters, I can't seem to get the hang of it!

I leave you with this Christmas card of my innocent grandsons playing on the beach in Cape May. Our family wishes your family joy and peace this holiday season and in the new year. Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah (Cheryl I am talking to you!).

  2. We must be sisters. "It's a Wonderful Life" is my all time favorite movie, too. Aaaaand I am also lucky to have wonderful friends. Have a wonderful holiday season.
    (Saw your blog listed on Jean's Quilting Page and had to see who else loves "It's a...)

  3. I love that movie too, and any film with Jimmy Stewart. What a treat to see it on the big screen, as a family outing. All those gifts are so fabulous and so "you". Where does Barb find those fun fabrics, I've never seen that bowling alley fabric. The photo of your grandsons on the beach makes a great Christmas card!! Wishing you and your family the most wonderful Christmas!!

  4. Merry Christmas to you and your family. I love that movie too. I also love "White Christmas".

  5. Happy Holidays! Fun to see your little treats.:)

  6. You did have a wonderful weekend. May it continue long into the new year. Merry Christmas

  7. Merry Christmas to you! I'm glad that you had such a good weekend; what a treat to see It's a Wonderful Life in an old theatre! I didn't realize that we were neighbors (if you live in or near Phoenixville) -- I live about 30 minutes away in Fort Washington. I will keep that old theatre in mind! :)

    Lovely birthday gifts, too.
    Best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful Christmas, too.

  11. It's a Wonderful Life is one of my favorites too. So glad you were able to enjoy it at the Colonial Theatre. Black Lab Bistro is a great little restaurant too. Merry Christmas to you and your family. (Love the Christmas card with your grandsons!)

  12. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Kelly!

    Love "It's a Wonderful Life", too. Looks like your family and friends know and love you well, according to the sweet gifts you're showing us. Enjoy and have a wonderful holiday season!

  13. Wow Kelly! Your friends really love you! Such great birthday gifts. And how nice to see that old movie in an old theater. I bet it really was fun. Can't wait for you to come to Florida, if for no other reason than to enjoy the warmer weather. I'm thinking of you this Christmas morning, wishing you and your family a merry day. Blessings.
