Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
The day job and kids sports schedule has been hectic this past week. So, we plan to decorate for Xmas this weekend. I'll be snapping lots of pictures for you. We have our live tree in the stand and boxes of clutter all over the living room and dining room! I could not help myself though and had to open a few boxes this morning to find a few pics to share. We decorate with handmade ornaments by me and treasures the kids have made over the years. It warms my heart and makes for the most sentimental tree. I'm looking forward to opening the boxes and seeing all the favorites. Here are a few of my handmade ornaments for the tree this year.
I love to alter vintage cookie cutters. The kids do too. I'll post a few of my daughter's, once I find them all, along with some of the sentimental favorites they've made over the years. You know the hand print wreaths, thumbprint on a construction paper circle from pre-school? lol I love those! I like to add a few tags as well, like this one. I'm still crazy for my paper projects -
I've learned keeping it simple is what I like most. You know you can expect to see a few recent projects on my tree this year too, like these PB copy cats
I have some fun "garland" that I plan to use this year. I'll share that idea with you this weekend. I'd like to make a tree topper out of a paper wreath and cone but the husband wants our old lit star. We'll see who wins that battle! lol I bet time will win and that star may be shining bright by Sunday! Take care sweet friends. I wanted to get a quick post up so that I can join the fun at these linky parties today!
