My thanks to all of you for the sweet comments on Oscar's passing. The friendships made online really help to pick you up when you are feeling so down.Oscar is now forever resting in his pasture where he liked to lay and sun on pretty days.Big hugs to you all !
I have a few more Christmas pictures to share ,as I have said before I really did not do much this year.It feels unreal to think that Christmas is only a few days away.It might be a little more Christmas like if the temperatures were not close to the 60 degree mark.Am I ready for the big day ?Honestly, no I am not! I have not done any gift wrapping ,grocery shopping or even finished the shopping for gifts.Perhaps someone else should take over those duties.LOL! That is not going to happen either,I am sure.LOL!
These pics are mainly in the kitchen and dining area of my home.I just realized that I more pictures than I thought so I will be breaking it up in two posts.Are you comfortable? Then lets go take a look see...
My stove board that I made a couple of years ago with a small tree in a tiny firkin and a trencher with cinnamon buns and a beeswax ginger from my friend Kristy.
The snowman ,salt dough snowflakes and yummy smelling wax tart snowballs were made by my friend Rox.She does wonderful work! The candle mat is another swap goodie from Kristy, it has such pretty colors and she attached a cute tag and sweet little gourd to it.She knows that I love gourds.
My kitchen window.The lovely beeswax Father Christmas was sent by Kristy.
In my kitchen .I redid the little drawer cubby a while back.
Sweet snowmen stars from Kristy and my sweet pillow tuck from Linda Claus.I redid the firkin bucket back last year,I think.
This display is more goodies from Kristy and my friend Susan.Susan did a wonderful job on the sign! Love the chunky potpourri ,beeswax Santa ,towel , and the cardinal make do from Kristy.It just looks great in the antique tote.
Closeups of the potpourri ,it smells delicious, and that gorgeous beeswax Santa.Gosh, but I love blackened beeswax goodies!!
My faux blackened fruit in antique wood trencher that is sitting on my dining room table.I made this using Robin's tutorial from It's a Kattywhompus Life ! If you haven't been to her blog please check it as you are missing a lot.
Love this old butter paddle ! I found it when we went out shopping on Black Friday.I only have a few paddles but this one has become my favorite.
Thought that I'd share where I put my needle punched Father Christmas that I shared a post or so back...
The candle is the one I won from Dena at Morning Glory Vintage and Prims, and the beeswax Santa is another one that Kristy sent me.She sure spoiled me in this swap!
Kristy did a beautiful job when she made this Santa from an antique Griswold mold, love the sweet tag she added to it .
Well ladies and gentlemen I guess that is the end of today's tour so please stay tuned as there are a few more pics coming in the next couple of days. May your day be filled with merry thoughts and delightful things.Hugs,Jen
