My Tree Is Up!

I can't remember when it took me so long to finish my tree!
Having an empty nest and no grands near by gives me less motive!

I took pics from several angles but the area around my cozy chair and high chair is still messy so you'll have to wait to see the whole room!

I've since decorated the window behind the tree a bit more.

Hope you're all fairing well over the holidays!
 I have a cold right now so I'm resting a lot- making yo yos and watching my favorite shows on Netflix!

Merry Christmas!

Hutch Close Ups!

Are you ready for some hutch close ups?



I love how you can see all the paint layers on my hutch in this pic!



Can you tell that my tree topper is broke?



I'm still hoping to find another fish bowl for the kitties!







Thanks for coming by and leaving a quick comment!
Hope you're all able to ENJOY Christmas time and not feel stressed!

I Finished!

I finished the hutch!  For now.  :)
I actually liked it better last year but I was determined to do it differently this.  
The addition of my pink appliances is fun though- right?  
Also- Happy in a snowglobe makes me laugh.
It doesn't take much to amuse me.

Merry Christmas all!

Christmas Fun At The Cottage

There's all sorts of fun around the cottage lately!  I've been decorating the hutch counter,
making mostly red yo yo elves for customers,

working on the hutch one cubby at a time,  (Maybe I'll be done by Christmas!)

thrifting for vintage Christmas and letting mostly red elves show people,  

more thrifting for Christmas,  (The cashier boy said he didn't think anyone would buy it and told Bobby that his name must be Dave!  Ha!)

looking at the snow out my craft room window and making yo yos for trees and elves,

playing with last years reindeer find,

Making an elf in mostly green,


making progress on the hutch top
and TODAY is my husband Bobby's birthday!
We have 3 birthdays during the holidays!
Whew!
I'm staying busy but having fun!

A Happy Globe!

Happy wanted me to put him in a snow globe!
 Silly Happy!  

(Does anyone have tips for photographing glass?  I can't seem to get a pic without some glare on it!)
