A Little Bit o' Christmas

Over the past couple of weeks, I've been 
getting the house ready for Christmas.

The garland is up, new wreaths adorn the front doors,
the big tree & kids tree are both up...

The kids even did their own decorating this year 
{lights and all!}. 

*Proud mama moment*
They did a fantastic job and didn't argue once.


We're having a bit of work done on the house...
Our schedule seems a little off
-and to complicate things-
I managed to injure myself pretty well this week...
so sewing will be at bare minimum the next few weeks
while I'm on the mend amid the chaos of construction.


HaPpY NeWs:

I found new (to me) vintage glass ornaments online
and am having a blast opening some fun mail. 

My tiny collection from last year has grown 
enough to make the move to the big tree, leaving the 
garland in need of some new finds, too!

The ornament hunt will 
should keep me out of trouble.


All my best,


Cats & Mice

Another Kaffe block to add to the design board. 
It's a fun one!

Homeward Bound

Blue block {fwqal #48} called Homeward Bound is up on the design board. 
The song by the same name is still running through my mind. 

You can't go wrong with a little Simon & Garfunkel.
