Christmas Lights and a Sneak Peek!


Thought I'd share a few photos of some of our Christmas decorations!

We decorated outside a few weeks ago while the weather was still warm and I am glad because it's a bit chilly now. I know these are a bit blurry but maybe you can still get a feel for the views that we settle down with each night during the holiday season.

This little tree sits in our bedroom on a bookshelf. Right next to it is the candle and pear that I won over at Carmen's and yes Carmen the candle is still in the wrapper. It looks and smells so pretty that I hate to even burn it. ☺

I made this Santa about 10 years ago. We made these as well as snowmen and sold them at a craft fair. They sold great! So great that I never kept one for myself. This one was made & given to my mother-in-law. We found it while going through her belongings this summer so I thought I'd bring him back home with me.

*Note to myself--make a few more but prim them up a bit!*

Well that's all for now but here's a sneak peek at what I'll be posting about on Monday. I had a helper in the kitchen today. Can you guess what he was making?
