I picked another swirly type tree for the opening photo. I plan tomorrow to be a swirly day. I need to hit the toy store plus a couple of other places.I figure the toy store will be the craziest!
Today was a nice and relaxing day. In the afternoon I had my sampler guild meeting. A small gathering since this seemed to be a popular day for holiday parties. However, eeryone brought lots of great food to share and we had a nifty project.
Using two buttons, ribbon and beeswax, we made a little beeswax holder. I don't have a sample to show you since I didn't take any buttons with me. Maybe this week I can try to finish mine and remember a photo. We shall see.
Speaking of photos, here are a couple of my "decorating":
My living room couch and coffee table. The large pillow in the middle is new this year. The other two were new last year.
Part of the eat-in kitchen (note the high chair for the grandkids). All the ornaments hanging from the curtain rod are handmade. The framed house on the left is stitched by me many , many moons ago. The "reindeer" was a gift. On the table, the angel is actually a teapot. I have six Christmas/winter teapots. Five are out on display in various parts of the house - only two are in the kitchen area. There are also two everyday teapots out in the kitchen.
Can you tell I like teapots? I do have a pilgrim one for Thanksgiving. One of these days, Iwill find something I like for Halloween. I have a couple of really floral ones for Easter/Spring/Mother's day. They aren't totally my taste but since they were gifts, they are staying.
