Here are some shots of decorations for the holidays. This one was Thanksgiving. The blocks on top say "Count Your Blessings"
And here is that space for Christmas. Same blocks on top only this side says "'Tis the Season". The wood candles next to it were made by my son way back when he was in cub scouts. Cute. The countdown til Christmas next to the candles is a new addition this year.
Bay leaf wreath.
Candy cane wreath.
I find cross stitch very relaxing so I used to choose one big project to work on through the year. This is our cross stitch nativity.
How is this for cuteness? This picture was taken the day after my husband and I got engaged and I had it made into a Christmas plate. My intention was to do an updated picture each year but sadly this is the only one that got made.
This advent calendar was another one of those things that I saw in a catalog. It was way too expensive to suit me so I asked my Dad to make it for me. He cut the wood and assembled it and I painted it. I think that I'd paint it differently if I were to do it now but there it is anyway. The biggest difference between this one and the catalog is that theirs was a music box and we didn't bother to do that.
