Yesterday I went to the storage building to get all my MILLIONS of items I MIGHT want to use to decorate with. The entire back of my van is full but, progress is SLOW!!!! The only part I have done is the top of my china hutch in the Living Room. I wanted to share it because it is one of my favorite things right now. This is the vintage doll I found a couple of years ago. I named her Noel. She is sitting on a vintage child’s sled, dressed in a vintage Christening Gown & very old winter white wool coat doll coat. She wears a hat & muff of WHITE rabbit fur. Noel is also holding a sparkling SILVER star (I may move that because I don’t like that you can see it’s base but, that is because I was standing on a ladder to photograph her & from the room you can’t see it). Sitting behind her on the sled is a hook with holding a pretty white brush wreath wreath sprinkled with silver ornaments. And I have a beautiful white tree sitting behind her. You can go HERE to see the post I did about her for a past Christmas (I hope you enjoy seeing that). Anyway, this part is done & I LOVE HER!!!! Now, I have our nine foot tree set up in it’s spot of honor & it is BARE!!!!!! And why is it still bare? Because I have been blog hopping & being inspired by others instead of working. But, I want to share with you what I have found & think you will LOVE it as much as I do.
This beautiful STOCKING was done by Thespa & she was sweet enough to share a tutorial of how to make this beauty so go HERE to see more on this amazing sugar plum of an idea.
The next thing I want to share is some beautiful snowflakes made by my precious friend Sandy from Quill Cottage. She also has done a tutorial so you can make some of these beauties too!!!! The talent & generosity out in Blogland is truly breathtaking. And speaking of breathtaking… go HERE to visit Sandy & see her magic!
Takes your breath away doesn’t it? Go HERE for the tutorial from Sandy! Thank you Thespa & Sandy for being such sweet sharing souls & for spreading the magic of Christmas. If you visit these angels please tell them Charlene sent you!
