A little visit, with photo link

Hi everyone,
I just wanted to pop in a bit, I certainly have missed you all. I was going thru some of the threads, there is such alot of talent going on!

Life gets in the way sometimes, my cancer reoccured last year and just about did me in this time. But after a miserable chemo (is there any other kind?) and major surgery, I am finally getting back to feeling human again.

I haven't been doing too much photography with design over the last year of my recovery, but I did take a few pics from this Christmas. If you go to the link and scroll down to my "White Christmas" pics you'll see a bit what I was up too.

Here is a link that might be useful: Christmas 2013 pics

Gosh, I'm so sorry that you are battling cancer again. I wish we could find a cure for that nasty disease. I linked over to your beautiful tree...absolutely gorgeous. I enjoyed reviewing your 2012 pictures, too. I love how you used the lady in your table setting.

Judith, I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have you here and sharing photos.
I am so sorry to hear what a terrible year you had and all you've gone thru again with the cancer. Last year wasn't good to quite a few of our gang it seems. I sure hope
2014 is a lot better. Sounds like you're off to a good start.

Did you get your remodeling done before you had to deal with Chemo?
hugs, Karen

Judith good to see you popping in here.
I'm so sorry to hear what you had to go through again....
Hope you're on your way to a better start with the new year.
The last I remember was your 'massive DIY ' project.
I was amazed by how large of a project you took on.
With all you went through was it ever completed.? If so, please share
The 'After '. With us...we'd love to see how it turned out.
Once again nice to see you here ...take care.

Judith, I'm so glad your feeling human again after all you've been threw last year. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful table again and Christmas photos.

You say your tree didn't photograph well and I think it's Gorgeous!!! Your white tree made me go AWE... Loved seeing all the Christmas pictures you shared. The reflection on the coffee table is stunning!

Sure hope you continue to feel better. Will be sending prayers your way. Thanks again for sharing and know that you are a wonderful inspiration for all to follow!

Fun2behere, thank you, I am glad you liked my tree, I always hate taking it down, the room looks so plain after all that glitz. I did "dress" my lady again this year, but didn't grab a shot of it. She's become a tradition with me.

Karen, and Jane, thank you for the welcome back and I'm glad you liked the pictures.
Hmm, some of my remodel I have progressed on, but not much. Alot/most of my extra money is tied up in paying for the 3 years worth of cancer medical bills I have/and ongoing medicals that are associated still with it. So, my remodel is VERY slow going.

Punk, thank you too, I am happy you like them, I almost did not do a tree this year, but I figured it is healther not to give up on things I love.

Judith ... so beautiful ... love all the whites & silvers & the glass ~~ very, very classy...am so happy to hear from you again (IDK if you remember me, jeannespines) Anyway, I've always enjoyed you & also Cjim's very elegant decor over the holidays! Whenever I see an elegant bust, I think of you. I have a friend who also decorates w/one after seeing yours many yrs ago.

I also am having a 'massive' surgery soon & have dealt w/chemo the last 5 of 6 mos ... & have been told I will have 6-12 more mos of chemo after surgery (the thought is unbearble) ...but...you popped into the 'Holiday Forum' as an 'angel' (in my book) ... creating more 'hope' for the rest of us who are dealing with health woes. Thank you so much ~~ Jeanne S.

Hope, is always there.

Jeanne, thank you so much for your sweet words, I loved CJIMs contruibutions too.
Yep, decorating the "Lady" is fun, she wears the jewelry much better than I ever could, she has such a long slim neck. LOL.
Ah, I can definately relate to your chemo and surgery. But I know you can do it, it is hard but just try to take one day at a time. You WILL get thru it! :) There is always hope and promise.
I hope you have someone at home to support you through this. I did not have a person at home for me, but I did have my little dog Toby, he licked my tears away more than once, thankgoodness for our pets!
I will be holding you in my heart and prayers
Hugs
Judith

What beautiful decorating, all of it! To all you cancer patients and cancer survivors....as a survivor I have some idea what you're going through although I didn't have to have chemo, just radiation. My mother had cancer 3 times and died at age 99 from old age. You can do it, too!! You're all in my prayers. It's definitely not an easy thing to go through.
