Good morning everybody! Well, at least it was morning when I started this post! Lol! Lauren is home sick today and my mom has gout in her ankle so between feeling bad for the two of them and doing laundry, dishes and the like, I'm having a hard time getting this done. But here goes.....
This is an unfinished shelf I got at the craft store. I really needed a little shelf for this corner to display all my little laundry collectables. I think the black looks good because to the right of it is a little cupboard that is red.
These are some little icicle snowmen that I made along with a simple fabric covered box that has potpourri and tart melts inside. I simply added some greenery to the cute little stocking and the sweet little candleholder. None of these projects were hard, but they all look so cute!
Remember these little stockings from my trip to the flea market? I grubbied them up with some coffee and vanilla and they look so much more prim than they did.
This is the stitchery I started about 2 weeks ago. I got the pattern from Chestnut Junction. I love how he turned out. Now to find the perfect spot for him when I decorate!
Now, I have saved the best for last! This is my Lauren's first stitchery! Can you believe it? She did an excellent job. She will be 8 years old next month and I think she did surprisingly well. When I was working on my Santa, she asked me if she could try it. I was shocked that she would find it the least bit interesting. Living in this technological world that we live in, I really didn't think it would appeal to her. Boy, was I wrong! She is as addicted to it as I am! Now she is going to be working on some Christmas gift stitcheries......I love it! Gee, I don't sound like a proud mommy, do I?
Well, that's about all I got for today. Go on over and visit Leslie at My Country Home and see what everyone else has been up to! And have a great day while you're at it!
