Christmas garland

December 17, 2012 § 2 Comments

I thrifted this vintage Christmas fabric last year. I made the bunting after Christmas in a week of motivation, go figure. And I have been waiting impatiently for the Christmas season all year to enjoy it! I’d say it is the focal point of the living room.






Left on the shelf- baby cradle

I liked this beautiful wicker rocking cradle at the thrift store. But it is not our time of life at the moment. At less than $20 I hope someone loved this wonderful deal.


Two more for the wall

Tiny rosy tray. $.99. Perfectly lovely.

Remember I bought this guy?


Painted this guy green:


Stuck them together, and now he lives with his rhino friend.


And they are very solemn together. I love it.

Can’t collect too many dishes. Breakable space hoggers. But just a few. Some day I’ll have a whole table set with mix and match awesomeness. 2 Anthro plates this week for $1.06. Sweet!



At my house

This week we put away the hunting garb, freshly washed. No elk this year. But the boys are all still practicing their elk calls. Even the baby.

Christmas is coming. It all fits in one box for us. Mostly beloved books. I own 6 ornaments.

This is my favorite Christmas bit. I got this nativity in Kenya, Dec ’05. All the pieces fit in the beautiful banana leaf box.

The stack of scarves for gift wrap is growing. The presents are going to be so pretty! I’m going to sew ribbon on some of them. I’ll be thrilled to not have a bag of paper waste on Christmas!

I finished this crown and dress for a little birthday girl today. I do so hope they fit. It is my most favorite thing in the whole world to give good gifts. The postman is my constant conspirator.

I bought this little mirror at the thrift store for $3. It was a bit dingy and faded, but I washed it and sprayed on a coat of polyurethane. My before and afters don’t show much difference, but it is rich and brown and I love it.

Where Am I?
