Christmas littlies



























One of the best things about the run up to Christmas is being able to make lots of tiny goodies to decorate the home. I've been on a bit of a roll, and for once the sunshine came out to help my photography. We've had rain every day bar one for the last month I think, and even this morning it was raining first thing. The sun is very low at this time of the year, so the shadows are rather strong but that can't be helped.

I've made some more door hangers, a door stop which took Rosie's fancy and finished off a cute little angel hanger that I started last year.

We've dug all the Christmas boxes out of storage, just to remind ourselves of what we've got, so that we can start thinking about where to put them in our new house. They won't go up for a while yet though, and we won't buy a tree for a few more weeks; we always buy a real tree and don't want it to dry up and drop its needles everywhere too soon.

Next job is to make the waistcoat I promised Number Two Son; it's his birthday on the 17th December so that seems like a good target to aim for.

If you are like me you forget what xmas decorations you have until you unpack them. We won't be decorating for a couple of weeks yet either, It always seems so early to me to be doing it now.

What cute door hangers and I just love the angel one. You are right - these little projects are so fun and really brighten things up. My problem is that I have too many little projects and big projects!

Once you're done with the decorating I hope you'll post photos of the house. I sure know what it's like to find places for a new place. Your door hangers are adorable.

I just love the photos of your cat's fascination with that beautiful doorstop - priceless!

The door knob hangers are cute as can be! An idea to think about for sure.

They are just gorgeous! I love redwork, the simplicity and freshness of it and yours are especially nice.

Amanda,

I like all you decorations. I'm still unpacking things so not sure where the Christmas tree will go yet.
