New Arrangements

Made a few little flower arrangements this week. I found the containers at our local thrift store.....always fun finding little treasures!

This little Valentine's arrangement will be on a table in the foyer of our church.



Spring arrangement for the same table.



This one's for me.....I love this little vintage coffee cup.



Back to working on Andrea's costumes for the musical.

Thanks for visiting!

First Finished Project in 2010

This is a late Christmas present for our daughter Andrea. A 50" x 70" denim and flannel throw for in her car. Great for picnics, football games, etc. It's comfy just like your favorite jeans and flannel shirt :)





I started this project on New Year's Eve.....due to a new challenge in my life (vertigo) I have been away from my sewing room for a couple weeks. The vertigo isn't as bad now or I'm getting used to dealing with it.....so I'm sewing again, but I don't think I'll be turning out the volume of projects that I'm used to. Maybe it's good for me to slow down a little.....lol


Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas Around our House

Just thought I'd share some pictures before I "put Christmas away" for this year.

I display different wall-hangings in our stairway throughout the year.



I bought this manger scene soon after we were married....a.k.a. it's an antique!


I made Heather and Andrea's stockings years ago. I found the leftover fabric in my sewing room (amazing after moving twice) and made Andy one to coordinate.


Our tree......


and the train and village beneath.


Our carolers......



Yes this is an old soda bottle crate, and most of these ornaments are antiques ...just a fun little nostalgia piece.


Andy and Heather bought us this ornament on their honeymoon.


Our new ornament for 2009, rust and bells, 2 of my favorite things!


Andrea's gift from her piano teacher, thanks Christy!


A little collection of paper churches, don't know why I like these but I do.....they aren't old, just pretty!


A favorite gift this year, Greg and the kids got this rusty shovel with bells for me :)



Blessings for your New Year!
