Another Christmas has come and gone. Most of the gifts have been exchanged. (Although there are a few gifts that still need exchanged. Being sick over the holidays is no fun.)
This wreath was made for a friend who loves the color brown. I couldn’t post this earlier, because the recipient of this wreath reads my page, and she’d have known what she was getting before she got it.
I apologize for not posting last week. I really wanted to get this post up, but I managed to sprain my wrist, and typing with a sprained wrist is not easy. So, I’m ‘hunting & pecking’ this post.
With the Christmas season upon us, I’ve been working on some new items for the home, gifts & some more orders. This is the first centerpiece for the season. It’s so easy to make, using items available at any craft store or the Dollar Tree.
Merry Christmas everyone! I know that this isn’t a traditional tree, but it’s something that I’ve been wanting to try for years. Well, this is the year! I finally have my Black & White Christmas Tree. (I can hear my sister groaning already 😉 ) I’ve been collecting black, white, crystal, iridescent & silver ornaments for several years for this tree. Finally, I got to use them.
I’ve been making these Christmas angels for years, and no matter what style you make her in, she always looks wonderful. This is going to be a long post that is heavy with pictures. It’s not a hard project to make, just a little time consuming, but so worth the time. This little Christmas Angel can be customized to fit any decor by changing up the fabric, trim & accessories. She can be used as a centerpiece or grace the top of your tree. This is how I made my Christmas Angel.
This Christmas Tablescape was inspired by the stoneware. Creatively Sam’s isn’t quite a year old yet, and I’ve been wanting to use this all year! Every time I look at this stoneware, I find myself humming the song, “O Christmas Tree”. Welcome to my “O Christmas Tree” Tablescape!
I’m usually drawn to a more modern decor, but there is a ‘girly’ side of me that loves Shabby Chic. I wanted to do a new Christmas Village vignette this year, and since my favorite color is lilac, I decided to go with that color. Here’s how I turned Dollar Tree houses into a Shabby Chic Lilac Village.
