Ho Ho Ho... from Pendra's!

Love my new lil' cuties from my Sis
in their adorable little glittered knitted sweaters and hats...
she is the knitter in the family so they are so appropriate!!
 They sit on my old dry sink with my white church birdhouses
and under my beloved chalkboard...
 Thanks again to Holly from Down to Earth 
for the beautiful handmade boxwood wreath!  
I have so enjoyed decorating it for the different seasons! 

 My little snowmen... & trees made by my Father.
I just love the little framed snow face, embroidered
on old thick batting... that's a face you have to love!
 I made some handmade snowman ornaments this year...
Love their sweet little faces and rolled up felt noses!

My little trees this year were winter inspired,
 with snowmen, birds and birdhouses
 My sweet little bears in their hand knit sweaters and hats...
were also a gift from my talented Sister. 
And our stockings are snug in the sleigh,
handmade by my Mom, many years ago!
 My cozy living room

 My Mom gave me the gift of loving to quilt...
 This was one we worked on together and one of my
most favorites we ever did!
 Love the gold thread swirled on the trees!
 It sits on my dining room table.
I replaced my white stoneware on the long table
(a library table from my old Elementary School)
with my hand painted winter scene
 The Old Mill
 The Bakery
The Church and beautiful stained glass windows 
 and the Toy Store
 Once again my village was painted with my Mom and
a very cherished keepsake and memory!
 The deck outside the dining room got a little decoration
as well, white icicle's, a multi wreath and a cute
lil' Charlie Brown tree.  So pretty at night and lights
Hannah's path for her nightly walks out back!

  I made my own cards this year... I need to start in July next year though!
 I loved to work in the living room this year, especially with my helper...
 sleeping beside me!

 They turned out very pretty (although a little blurry here)
this year and I want to thank Karen from The Graphics Fairy 
for some of the wonderful graphics!  If I missed someone,
please let me know and I'll credit you!
 Santa Annie was very generous with our pets this year...
 Leyla loved her catnip filled fishes
(her Papa's a fisherman you know)
 But she pooped herself out and fell asleep with them!
 Hannah on Papa's lap said she's had enough entertainment now
and is looking forward to a long winter's nap!
My cherished Angel and Cherub
 wish you all...a very Merry Christmas
 safe, with family and friends!
And Happy Birthday to our Son, Adam!!
