Christmas decorating fa la la la!

 La La la La La!    


                                                                       This is one of my Early Rughooking
                                            She comes out at Christmas.


I Think I have finished decorating for Christmas!. Since I am moving back to Crest I have been packing my sewing room and as I replace things on the walls I am putting up my Christmas decorations. I have slowly started the task of deciding do I really like a decoration or not?. Just because a dear friend gave me something I liked 20 years ago maybe our taste change as we get older. I have a primitive side of decorating and then I have a little grandma in the kitchen style of tins and cookie cutters and old aprons. So at least one room will be filled with the Joy of the Holidays and the other rooms have all sorts of boxes in all shapes and sizes.

                                               I have never known what those plates say.Oops i need to fix the Santa that fell.

              Another  snowman I made years ago. Boy it looks primitive !

                 Do you ever wonder why you just don't finish your quilt?
I finally finished my Snowman quilt.
             This Quilt has been sitting for at least three years.
              I just needed to bind it.I machine quilted it myself.

                                   Blessings to All!

Cheri, your decorations looks awesome. I love the primitive look but my home is an open plan and doesn't lend itself well to the look but I like the look any way. I love your quilt and that poor melting snowman is precious. Have great weekend Cheri. JB
