My "nest" came in the mail from my blogging friend, Vicki. She has an awesome blog called She makes these awesome nest out of all her fabulous yarn. I am sorry to say my camera doesn't take great pictures. Anyway thank you Vicki....I love it. Come visit and see it in my foyer.

    I took these pictures of my dining room when the sun hits it at 4:00. I just love the way it looks. Happy New Year everyone.

Almost Christmas!!

I know it is an "old craft" but this is my first Christmas tree made from a paper back book. It  was quite time consuming but fun. Just fold and glitter.

Yes I had time to knit a couple more scarves.

These are  a few gifts from my friend, Kathy. How cool is glitter in a salt and pepper shaker.

And these beautiful birds in a white wooden memory box.

The reason for the season. I was reminded of it once again this morning when I read a great story from Kathy over at   It is worth reading. Merry Christmas everyone.

 Started decorating right after Thanksgiving. I love to put the trees up. I especially like my two white trees. One is in the foyer and one in the family room.

Jack and Osker love to pose when the camera is out.

My son, Jason, made this paper star when he was five years old. He brought it home from Sunday school. I use it every year. Jason will be 36 on Sunday so this star is an antique!

I baked some biscotti last week-end.

Ok I thought I would needle felt a family....however they don't even resemble each other so I am calling them the "neighborhood women". And as you can see they all are over weight with really fat arms! Guess I need a little more practice.

The living room tree.
