I went on a virtual house tour this morning and although it was beautiful it wasn’t my reality.
This is my reality…
the quilt was made long ago from a Linda DeBono pattern. It's full of metallic threads sparking away.
A little mantel scene, the monk from my word of the year Joy, a snowbaby, a word of course!
My snowbaby collection started one year when my sister sent one thinking I collected them. Well, she started something! I loved this one to remind me of the porch sitting while watching birds.
I should have shown you the bag of unopened Christmas cards to send… sorry, it got away from me this year
The family room tree, with poodle perch. Hey we live here folks!
This is the tree in the entry, a poinsettia DH picked up at an office party for me, sad little red lights without garland. Plant sits in the pink wire flamingo
a table runner turned sofa ornament,
my tote bag during the season,
my purse for the holidays (this is a popular class, great for gifts and do able in a day)
I have made purses for every occasion over the years. I make one each time I teach the original pattern. I still love wearing my art.
Aside from kitchen towels for the season, which never fail to make me smile, and a couple of hand towels in the powder room, and lights in the trees, this is our holiday home. If you want to see fancy, check this out:
Do you all decorate your homes for the holidays? If you did a blogpost on them make sure you leave the address for us to come see.
Stay tuned for the crazy event we saw in Annapolis this weekend.
