Finishing


This weekend was a finishing weekend for me, I just love tying up loose ends and finishing up projects. I finished this little ellie for a sweet little girl for Christmas, I hope she likes it. Then I finished three more little scottie dogs for my Etsy shop, and lastly.... drum roll please, I finished Christmas decorating!
I am quite pleased with how it turned out so I thought I'd share a few pics, first the tree, it took forever but it makes me smile,then the mantle
this is where the majority of my snowmen spend Christmas.These little angels are one of my favorite decorations, they came back from Germany with us and I put them out year after year.The last pic for today is of our living room, on the coffee table is a quilted table runner that was my very first attempt at piecing and quilting, it was from a free pattern and I searched long and hard for just the right fabrics. So as you can imagine I am feeling pretty good right now with all the finishing that was accomplished this weekend, now if I could just finish the Christmas shopping then I would really be happy!

Have a good Monday!

Everything looks so lovely, Kathy! We, too, finished our decorating (except those darn outside lights!) today. I will be posting photos soon. We kept our tree minimal due to little hands this year, but I still like it. Have a great week!

Your home looks so festive! We only have a couple of trees up and that's it! We never decorate that much - I expect we will do more as Leah grows older.

Oh wow - what a tree! It is just how I would imagine the perfect tree!! Love the little elephant too!

Forget your bil's shop. I want to live at your house for the holidays. It truly looks like Christmas should look. I haven't started decorating and am considering skipping it this year. Do I sound like Scrooge?

The elephant is sweet.

I love the colors on your newest ellie! She is SO cute! The little girl will LOVE her! And your decorating is absolutely gorgeous! I love the German angels. I've been looking for the vintage angel candles but haven't had a lot of luck. I think next year I might do a table runner too. It would be fun to bring in some fabric from the curtains I'm sewing but incorporate a Christmas feel too. I'll be over for some tea with you!!!

Oh yes you have the same little angels. I love yours :) Mummy brought it from Germany a long long time ago...
