Christmas Gatherings....

Just a few of the gathering for Christmas and most of winter.  

This is one of my favorite ways to decorate a tree.  I dry orange slices and string cranberries.  After Christmas, I put red silicone lights on with the white ones and replace the oranges with heart ornaments. 

When we brought our tree in a few weeks ago, I had enough time to put lights and a burlap garland on.  We then went on about a two week run where we had something almost every night of the week.  And as you can see, it is still not decorated.  I think I like the "simple"  aka "lazy" look!!

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful evening.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town....

Good afternoon.  I wanted to stop by and share some of my Santa collection with you.  A few I have purchased and a few I have made.  Like many of you, I really like the simple decorating so most times it's just Santas and greenery.  

The mittens in the dry sink belonged to my grandma.  We found them in her attic a couple of summers ago.  They are a perfect reminder of her.  

This guy is one of my favorites.  I originally made it to sell, but changed my mind once he was finished.  

All of the samplers in this display are ones I have stitched over the years. 

This is a new addition this year.  I made him from an old feed sack.

This old window chalkboard was also a project from this fall.  I've had the window for years and came across this idea from Pinterest.  Such a simple project!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful evening.
