Hi and Happy Friday! I've been working on my December decorations little by little this week and I thought I'd go ahead and share. It feels almost done to me - see what you think. My husband made this sign for me, design whiz that he is.
One of my smokers - maybe next year I'd an all smoker display. I've been collecting them since, well...since a long time ago. Let's just leave it at that. They come from Germany and I just found a site with so many amazing ones - maybe I need to add to my collection (teehee).
Mini quilt not quite done but I figured if I made you wait until it IS done I'd be showing you the holiday cupboard in January. I was going for a snowflake but I know it's really an asterisk - I just couldn't wrap my brain around the piecing to get it right. I was happy to read that my friend Ali had a similar experience - if she couldn't work it out it probably just can't be done. Cute sparkly reindeer was an ornament from Target this year.
Another sweet Target ornament - sparkly paper church with the teeny tiniest bottle brush trees.
Mercury glass tree with a yummy smelling candle inside. Antique mother-of-pearl inlaid angel.
Winter in Central Park, of course.
I was going for light and airy, silver and gold...so what do you think? The wreath on top is a straw wreath wrapped in tinsel. I wanted silver but store I was at had a silvery blue and so I went with it. I'm debating whether the white frame would look better as silver - it seems to get a little lost in there. This isn't normally the color scheme I use at the holidays but it just felt right this year and it's a nice change of pace. Maybe I'll get the mini quilt finished this weekend. Maybe. Whatever happens I'm palnning on finding a bit of time to sew and a LOT of time to relax - hope you do too.
