A Very Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hi everyone!  I have just a few more pictures to share with you. You might have seen a bit of my glitter village peeking out in my last photos.  Here’s  a better view.

My Christmas Silhouettes. The Nativity Silhouette is from Suzanne at Painter of the Past  (she’s a wonderful artist) and the plates I got last year at TJ Maxx (didn’t see them there this year).
silhouettes The mantel looks much better with the stockings hung! We’ve had these stockings since time began! Maxie our dog gets a stocking too. Savanna crocheted him a toy and I made him a toy out of felt and leftover squeekies from previous store bought toys.

I’ll be back after Christmas.

May you all have a joyous and blessed Christmas!

Kelley said...

Man WELLa! Loved the photos, sis. Even Maxie's got a stocking. The precious angel. Thanks for inviting me into your home this year.

I'm writing from the Honolulu airport, dear. Headed home to move #19, back into the little Dutchgirl, our 24-foot RV that we tow with Vanna White, the Ford Clubwagon. We have to drive our little home on wheels from Tucson to Connecticut by January 19. GIRL! I have to keep reminding myself: It's a miracle we're here. It's a miracle we're here.

*sigh* But you know what I'm soooo thankful for? The little Dutchgirl. There's no place like HOME... and the pleasures of home-making, wherever you live!
