Hello friends and Happy Holidays to all of you!
So I'll ask again...
am I the only crazy person who decorates her home for the holidays
Mr. Secret Agent was out of town for a night
so I took the opportunity
to stay up half the night and get going on my decorating.
As you can see I didn't make an effort to hide my light wires,
but hey...remember, it's 2am!
Remember the beautiful wooden stars made by the 93 year old crafter?
I love it!
Lot's of antique sheet music wreaths and ornaments
They are so darn easy to make..
I got caught up in the frenzy
I'll fill these with mini candy canes anad greens
I just love the look of the sheet music and glitter!
My favorite Santas are on display.
The little guy is a stuffed mini (only 5in) that I made many years ago.
He has a tiny burlap sack filled with cinnamon sticks
and twigs and a tiny bottle brush tree.
This santa is my all time favorite piece I have ever painted.
He is actually a wind up music box and plays
'I'm Dreaming of A White Christmas'
He is magical
I call him my Bob Hope Santa.
Look at that nose of his...
I think he looks just like Bob Hope!
Do you see it?
Same little ski slope of a nose.
This is a picket fence of Santas that I painted,
they sit inside a green wreath.
So easy to do.
I have quite a few birds and nests
Give me a snowy bough and a bird nest
and I'm a happy gal.
Poor reindeer...seems to have lost his antlers
Anyone have a spare pair of sticks??
I adore this little paper mache box with a folk art snowman.
I bought this at a craft show from a lady named Sherrie.
I have quite a few holiday painted pieces from her.
Happy to say Sherrie now has her own brick & mortar shop right here in
Old Town Warrenton, Va.
My kitchen got in on some holiday action also.
Hey Gretel...see anyone you know?
I currently have an antique window pane from my brothers very cool
and very old cottage in NY.
They updated the drafty kitchen and gave me the windows.
For now it sits on my way too tiny mantel..
os I just made it part of the holiday decor.
Isn't this little guy sweet?
His body is made from spun cotton batting with lot's of clear vintage glitter and lovely feather wings.
My cute snowman in a basket is a new addition to my mantel.
On Shop Local Saturday he was purchased at one of my favorite local gift shops
right here in beautiful
Amy has some of the prettiest holiday decorations this year.
If you are local...pop in and tell Amy I sent you!
I saved one of my Holiday Forest bottle brush trees for myself and she sits on my mantel.
I decided to do multiple flameless candles this year instead of a string of lights.
It looks so pretty at night when they are flickering and Costco sells the remote control pillars.
How cool is that!
Like I said..I love a snowy bough!
So that's it so far.
Now Time to tackle the tree!
Ok...so this is not really my decorated tree.
I got carried away with Picnik
I promise to show you when I finish decorating with real ornaments.
I will leave you with a few sneak peaks at a current project
and of course a couple of very cool
You know me...always looking upward!
I think you will like this one!
Beautiful Virginia sunset the other night.
See the moon up in the top left corner?
Yeah...it was spectacular!
Have I told you how much I love the moon??
It simply amazes me.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
