I thought I would do a bit of decorating today. This is
my ornament hangers. Oh yeah off to a good start.
The painting my husband purchased off a old guy
that had no money for about 80.00. We had no money ourselves we had just
purchased our first house, we were young and money was tight. But I guess David
felt he needed it more than we did. I now really love it we have had it at least 35 years.
Very folk art feeling.
Decorating isn't the only thing I have been doing. I have been busy hooking.
This is the pattern in Rug Hooking Magazine this month.
I made a few changes. I chose a lamb instead of a horse.
and I tried to make Santa rounder. I am waiting to get some back ground around the starts to decide if
I like them or not. I am hand cutting the strips for the tree and the background I will be glad
when I get better at that I am slow and crooked. Santa's beard and the fluff on his hat and cuffs is wool roving.
And what would a weekend be without some dump picking.
These have the tags on them made in the USA.
lead crystal. We have several yankee swaps, these with a bottle of wine
from one of the NH wineries sounds like a good gift to me.
David has so much Christmas spirit he has been running round outside putting lights on any
thing that doesn't move. The big problem he bought the lights last year at a close out sale
and not many match. So it looks a bit like the circus has come to town.
I say let him go he had a tough Christmas last year. (but oh my beautiful saltbox house)
The hardest job kids face today is learning good manners without seeing any.
