I wish you could all smell my house right now, it is simply wonderful! I have been incredibly busy all weekend long making things for a few craft fairs that my daughter is once again participating in. For some reason I have been feeling soft and romantic so I decided to make some pillows complete with their own wonderfully smelling removable potpourri sachets. This one smells of Magnolia and it is just divine. I even used some of my lovely vintage lace that I found a while ago in an antique shop.Then I decided to make some Lavender Sachets, it took most of the afternoon to make them and I have to say that I was wonderfully relaxed after smelling all that lavender. I think in time I may make more and add them to my little Etsy shop, just for a change of pace and to add more variety. I have so enjoyed making these, it as a nice change to make something that doesn't have arms or legs!It wasn't all sewing this weekend, believe it or not I did leave the house for a while to run errands and stop by my brother-in-laws shop, here is another one of his beautiful Christmas decorations. I don't imagine it was to easy getting that large wreath onto the ceiling above this wonderful chandelier, but it sure does work, doesn't it? I hope you can get some decorating ideas from these pics, he really is very talented when it comes to Christmas decorating.
Now for a couple of thank-you's, first to Tess over at Driftwood for a lovely tag, I promise I will get to it this week, that was so very sweet.
Next I can't end this post without thanking my wonderfully talented daughter for updating my blog header and my Etsy shop header. Now I am all Christmassy looking and I just love it! She has been busy updating her own blog and has some neat ideas on there so pop on over and take a look and say "Howdy!"
Hope you all have a great start to your week.
