Winter Putz Display

While most people display their Putz Houses during the Christmas season,

I reserve mine for a favorite winter display...

Why?

Because, I have way too much Christmas decor to display and not enough surface space to show and share it all at the same time!

The Best of 2014

When 2014 first arrived, I thought this was going to be a lean year in terms of projects. My home was close to what I wanted it to look like
                                                 ...but oh I was wrong.
It's been a great year of improvements and completely new creations!

The Cutest Wool Trees

One of the favorite things
that I do every year
to get myself in the
Spirit of Christmas
is go to an Open House at a local natural crafts store called
Ohio Street Originals.

This post is not about this store (but you can see an old post I did on that store HERE)

What this post is about are the fun and adorable little wool trees that I discovered there and how to make them!

Ticking In Time for Christmas

As my mind was

dreaming up

a new way to display

my Christmas decor

(It's boring if it's put up the same way every year, don't you think?)











I decided that I needed

a new runner

for my buffet...

Creative Nativity Display

It all started this summer when my son gave me a single, huge elk antler. I knew that I wanted to use it for my Christmas display with greenery but the rest came as I was working on getting the loads of Christmas decor out to decorate...

Feed Sack Clothes Pin Holder

I have been hanging on to the feed sack for a while. I thought it looked interesting and my son's last name is Kelly. In the back of my mind, I was going to make it into a pillow for my DIL (Daughter-In-Law) but she hates throw pillows! Is that even possible?
